Your Special Day
Why move your guests from place to place? Or take a risk with the weather? We can host intimate ceremonies in an incredible character rich setting, then it’s a simple matter of moving next door for the fun to begin. Champers anyone?
After the ceremony your guests can freshen up with some nibblies and drinks in the lounge bar, before moving back into the main space for dinner. For a more informal cocktail wedding this fully furnished space is perfect for up to 150 guests, with enough room leftover for a dance floor. Ole!
Once canapés and arrival drinks have been served it’s time to reveal a fairy-tale dinner setting in Lightspace 1. This unique space has a special quality, looks incredible in images and can host up to 250 guests for a night to remember. May I have this dance?

“Where to start? THANK YOU so very much for an amazing wedding experience! We were totally blown away with the space, service and complete ease leading up to and on the day of our wedding. Everything looked absolutely amazing and we couldn’t have been happier. Everything from the planning, set-up and on the day was a breeze. We couldn’t have got through it without your styling advice. You even managed to bail us out of a last minute band cancellation! As we were our guests were blown away with the space and relaxed feel of the venue- all making for a fantastic evening. Small details from the availability to upstairs for the bridal party to checking in on our time sheet, and last minute changes- everything was easy!

We are a licensed venue so drinks must be purchased via Lightspace. This will be via a pre-paid package or on consumption bar (we have some amazing selections at fantastic prices). Our caterers can provide the food and staff to serve the drinks, or we can hire the bar staff. Chin chin!
Lightspace 1+2 can host up to 500 cocktail style, 400 theatre style or 250 for sit-down dining. The spaces can be further divided for more intimate events using drapes we have onsite. The bar lounge (Space 2) is perfect for 150 cocktail style, 100 theatre style or 60 for a sit-down dinner.
Nope! We only ever host one event at a time, so once you book the space is all yours!
There is no onsite parking for events at Lightspace, only a loading bay within the venue. Street parking is fairly sparsely available during normal business hours but there are plenty of loading zones and metered parks directly out front. After normal business hours the streets are normally clear of vehicles, so there are normally plenty of spots available in Scanlan or Prospect Streets.
If you are hosting a small daytime event or meeting there is the possibility of arranging parking within the main space, which creates around a dozen carparks. Please ask us for details.
Yes, we have equipment onsite so you can play your favourite tunes, or you can borrow our iPod... complete with a quality selection.
There is also a sound limit and we have neighbours across the road, so the volume is more than enough to have a great party, but not enough to wake the dead.
We have a projector (fixed into the ceiling in the bar lounge), 4 x 500 watt speakers, 2 mixers, 2 microphones and iPod jacks for you to use. Anything else will have to be hired in. We can recommend trusted suppliers if necessary.
Upon arrival the venue will be set with our onsite furniture and accessories. You can re-arrange if desired, or add your own touches. There is only one golden rule- 'DO NOT DRAG ANYTHING ON THE FLOOR' as the beautiful polished concrete scratches easily.
For most events the bump-out must occur the next morning as we can't load trucks and vans in the street late at night. There will be NO bump-out via the front door after 10pm, some loading can occur via the back terrace (i.e; catering equipment) but this must be done as quietly as possibly as we have neighbours in close proximity.
This is normally arranged depending on the amount of set-up required and whether we have an event the previous night.
You can customize Lightspace however you would like, providing that any existing decor is not damaged in the process. No nails, screws or glue may be used. Any onsite furniture that is removed has to be replaced at the end of the event or the next morning by arrangement.
As we have neighbours in close proximity all events must conclude by 11pm on Friday and Saturday nights, 10pm otherwise.
The Emporium Hotel is a brilliant option only two minutes walk from the venue, otherwise Limes or Rydges Hotels are approximately ten minutes. Breakfree Apartments on Brookes Street is good for those on a budget. Otherwise we're only 5-10 minutes from the city via taxi.
You may make a tentative booking at any time, however the date is only secure with the payment of our deposit fee, which varies according to the venue hire.
In the event of cancellation or change of date all payments made will be forfeited, so please make sure you're ready to go when you lay your money down.
