Arcana Brisbane Weddings

Are you searching for a blank canvas wedding venue in Brisbane that you can put your own spin on? Then how about Arcana? Boasting both indoor and outdoor spaces, its open-plan design can be tailored to fit your desired layout and theme. You’ll also have access to a mirrored dressing room, personal wedding manager and as much furniture and tableware as you need. Not to mention a range of in-house menus featuring classic dishes, tasty finger food and local ales.

The Scene at Arcana Brisbane

At Arcana Brisbane, you’ll find two main function areas that are perfect for wedding receptions of varying sizes and styles. Your first choice is the Temperance Garden Bar – an outdoor space covered by a domed canopy with romantic festoon lighting. Beneath it, you’ll find an outdoor bar with craft ales on tap alongside a mix of lounge seating, tables with stools and beanbags. The floor is carpeted with artificial turf, while various potted plants add authenticity.

Adjacent to the garden, you’ll find the Empress Room. This vast theatre-sized function area is housed within a blacked-out warehouse with 8m high ceilings. This gives it a chic, industrial feel which replicates a classic nightclub-style aesthetic. The room is also pillar-free and fully flexible in terms of floor plan and seating arrangements. There’s also a professional lighting rig, sound system and dancefloor in place to take your nighttime celebrations to the next level.

Arcana Wedding Ceremonies

If you’d like to tie the knot at Arcana, civil ceremonies can be arranged in the covered garden area. Complete with pretty string lights and plenty of greenery, this intimate setting lends itself well to more casual affairs. Alternatively, if you’d like a church service, St Brendan’s Catholic Church is nearby. Or there is Annerley Baptist slightly further afield. Meanwhile, in nearby Brisbane, the stunning Botanic Gardens offer a picturesque backdrop for summer weddings.

Arcana Wedding Receptions

From small outdoor celebrations to decadent evening receptions, Arcana Brisbane covers all bases. The Garden Bar provides a more informal setting, perfect for daytime drinks and nibbles accompanied by a solo musician. Meanwhile, this blank canvas Brisbane wedding venue’s Empress Room plays host to show-stopping post-wedding parties. Dance the night away to a live band or DJ on a professionally sprung dancefloor beneath dazzling disco lights.
