Real Weddings: Brisbane’s Old Museum

They call it a special day for a reason but when Chantal and her beau tied the knot at the Old Museum it was doubly so. Cuisine on Cue has the privilege of exclusive catering rights at the Old Museum and it was a magical affair when Chantal and her groom were the very first couple to hold their wedding at this dream location.

The Wedding Ceremony

The ceremony was held on the pristine lawn in the late afternoon. The bride was radiant in a dress of white and gold as she walked down a red carpet to her groom, stylish in a white tuxedo jacket, as live musicians played. Cuisine on Cue provided the red carpet as well as the round signing table and 43 ‘Americana’ style white chairs for guests and guests of honour alike.


The Wedding Reception

Guests were taken directly from the ceremony on the lawn to the reception in Studio 1 with both the Balcony and the Ceremony Lawn available for mingling and talk of how happy the newlyweds looked.

The wedding reception had five dry bars with chrome tops and centrepieces provided by Chantal. We also set up a round cake table with an accompanying white tablecloth.

Complimentary tea lights adorned the Balcony and stairs while gold coloured lights lit up Studio 1.

Wedding Catering: The Food

Canapés were served by Cuisine on Cue staff with guests indulging in mustard coated and crumbed backstrap slices, sticky beef cheek empanadas with chipotle mayonnaise, southern-fried chicken drumettes with blue cheese mayo, Hervey Bay scallops, smoked cod and potato croquettes and harissa spiced beef brisket, served on puff pastry and topped with parsnip crisps.


Three different Fork Dishes were served in crockery bowls. Guests enjoyed sweet and sour pork medallions with snow peas and beansprouts on fried rice, a classic beef stroganoff with rotini pasta and steamed greens, and honey, soy and sesame chicken pieces with bok choi and steamed rice.

The few younger revellers were treated to serves of chicken nuggets and wedges.

For dessert, Chantal and Tony opted to have their wedding cake cut up by our staff and served to all their friends and family in attendance.

The Drinks

We provided a red, white and sparkling wine option for the reception, all courtesy of De Bortoli Willowglen. Beer drinkers had their pick from Crown Lager, Hahn Super Dry 3.5 and Cascade Premium Light. Guests that wanted non-alcoholic refreshments could chose from Coke, Diet Coke, lemonade, orange juice and sparkling mineral water.

Freshly brewed coffee and a range of teas were served after dinner.

It was a truly special event and a wonderful start for weddings at the Old Museum. We can’t wait to see what future brides and grooms have planned for their big day.
