Fiona and her team exceeded our expectations!! Their attention to detail, professionalism and amazing level of service, made our day more than words can express.


Metropolis Events were simply amazing and so professional throughout our whole wedding. Let’s be honest, the venue speaks for its self, it’s simply breathtaking! The food and consumer service was second to none. Our guests were left in awe the whole night - everything was simply perfect. My husband and I would highly recommend Metropolis Events as a wedding venue.
