City weddings are perfect for modern couples looking for a chic and convenient
venue to complement their day. If you’re inspired by bright lights and late nights, the dramatic city skyline could be the perfect backdrop for your day or night event.

A backdrop of glittering city lights and towering skyscrapers works well for an elegant or high glamour affair. Well-positioned reception rooms, from grand heritage ballrooms to sleek modern spaces, offer cool views and twinkling vistas after dark, and the convenient location means you’re never far from any last-minute finishing touches. This can also be a plus for guests, especially those travelling from interstate or overseas, who will easily be able to find comfortable accommodation close by.
City locations also provide inspired backdrops to your wedding photos with parks and gardens, skylines and urban settings, winding rivers and bridges all relatively easy to access. City weddings often involve booking through restaurants or hotels that offer complete reception packages, meaning you don’t have to worry about tedious menu planning, hiring wait staff, or organising music and audio equipment.
Clean lines, crisp whites and shiny metallics all invoke a sense of refined drama perfect for city weddings. Aiming for a chic minimalist effect?
Work with black and white or white with an accent colour. Choose simple but high quality linen, dinnerware, table decorations and bomboniere. If lavish city glamour is more your thing, go for high drama with tall candlesticks, overﬂ owing bouquets of blooms and gold or silver details.

Parking in the CBD can be a challenge so check with your venue for the best options on-site and close by. City landmarks like libraries and museums create stunning images, just remember to check with the council or site beforehand to find out if you need a permit to shoot there.

Soften an all-urban look by adding personal touches. Create a signature drink for guests to
sip on; weave your initials into the decorations; or give guests custom wedding favours – bridal illustrations with a personal message or fun photos in a luxurious frame are perfect keepsakes.
