Wedding Style Guide: Brisbane’s Old Museum
The Old Museum is one of Brisbane’s cultural and historical hubs, The Old Museum, is available for wedding hire with catering provided exclusively by Cuisine on Cue.
Situated just minutes from the CBD the venue is both extremely elegant and adaptable.
We’ve teamed up with some of Brisbane’s best wedding suppliers to assemble a style guide to inspire your dream wedding at this breathtaking venue.
White Wedding Ceremony
Graceful and timeless, there’s nothing like an airy garden wedding ceremony to make your mark in your guests memories. Make an elegant entrance up the long and winding driveway of Brisbane’s historical Old Museum in a superb, modern stretch limousine courtesy of Limoso, where you’ll be greeted upon arrival with the spectacular views of Brisbane’s CBD. Draped in the long sleeved hand cut lace luxury of the ‘Christina’ gown by When Freddie Met Lilly, you exude a classic yet romantic charm. With your veil trailing delicately behind you, you’ll make your way down a white linen draped aisle towards your intended, surrounded by guests seated on elegant, white Tiffany chiavari chairs. Say “I do” beneath a spectacular floral canopy brimming with seasonal blooms. Proceed to the to the terrace overlooking the lush gardens where you’ll be greeted with glasses of chilled champagne to toast your success.
Cocktail Party on the Terrace
Modern and elegant, there’s nothing quite like a cocktail and canapes reception to celebrate your nuptials in the river city. Set against the background of Brisbane’s most historical wedding venue, your guests will be greeted on arrival with a selection of hand crafted canapes like rare beef on croute, beetroot relish and petite herb and delicately shredded chicken served on a chipotle palmier with a hint of grapefruit. Then be dazzled by the gentle play of light on the warm brick façade as the sun sets in the distance and your guests sip champagne and toast to a long and very happy marriage.
Long Table Luncheon
Host a traditional, long table luncheon on the Old Museum’s terrace. Celebrate with friends and family and enjoy fresh, seasonal dishes from Cuisine on Cue’s dining menu. Indulge in local produce and premium meats including roasted spatchcock or tender lamb backstrap.
Rustic Dining on the Terrace
Take a seat at the antique wooden dining table featuring white plates and black napkins. The perfect mix of classic grace and personality, the tables are festooned with shining silver cutlery and quirky vintage candle holders which are interwoven with bright pink blooms. Setting off the rustic and relaxed atmosphere is a shared menu brimming with freshly shucked Tasmanian oysters topped with tart passionfruit dressing, Singapore style chill Moreton Bay bug tails and succulent Harvey Bay scallops on the half shell all courtesy of Cuisine on Cue.
Ideal for more opulent affairs with up to 300 guests, be swept away by the spectacular soft light as it trickles through the floor-to-ceiling arched windows that line the walls of Studio 1. Then lead your guests across the gleaming polished timber floors to a cluster of tables topped with pressed linen table cloths, gilt and white plates and towering floral bouquets supplied by Northside Flower Market. Then inject a touch of fun into your event with a photobooth courtesy of Instathat and individual cupcakes.
