Venue Testimonials

We had a beautiful mid-week wedding at Riverlife Brisbane and it was everything we wanted and more. They hosted the ceremony and reception taking care of everything from furniture to food, and event planning to make sure everything runs smoothly throughout the day. They made our wedding so easy and stress-free to plan. All the guests loved the location and the food was divine. I would highly recommend Riverlife to anyone for their wedding.

This was the best decision we made — choosing Riverlife. They have everything we needed: a garden, the element of water and the Brisbane view. We didn't have to spend much on decorations really because the view on its own is breathtaking. Riverlife is the best supplier that offers not only a venue but excellent service! The team have been superb — so easy to talk to and deal with!

Eden S ·

Riverlife was the most amazing wedding and reception venue. Our ceremony was in the Kangaroo Cliffs parklands with Brisbane City as the backdrop, and then it was just a short stroll to the reception venue, the riverfront deck. Both locations were incredible! Our event manager was a delight to work with and made the planning process so smooth. On our wedding day, all the staff were incredible and made us feel like VIPs! It was an absolute dream, and we are so fortunate to have been able to get married at Riverlife. We HIGHLY recommend it!
