Venue Testimonials

THE BEST WEDDING VENUE IN BRISBANE!!!! They were the most competent, creative and professional team I have ever dealt with. From the very beginning, the Emporium Hotel catered to our every need, explaining the detail each step of the way. The food was AMAZING and very high quality. The bar and service were 10/10. We were considering other venues in Brisbane, however, we thank our lucky stars that we chose the Emporium Hotel.

The whole team at Emporium Hotel helped us create an unforgettable wedding day, it was everything we could have imagined and more. The incredible views from the 21st-floor penthouse certainly set the scene for our guests as they enjoyed cocktail hour at sunset on the balcony followed by a stunning 5-course dinner. We could not fault a thing on the day, the food, service and set-up was exceptional. Thank you!

I recently had my wedding at the Emporium Hotel and would just like to say thanks to the awesome team there! The customer service level at the hotel is extremely high and everything from the night stays to the coordination and run of the wedding on the day/evening was perfect! If you are looking for a wedding venue where everything can be in one spot - this is it. I have always been worried about the rain and of course, it rained on the entire day of my wedding and we were so lucky to have a beautiful setting of the hotel to get photos inside.
