Vue de Monde Weddings

If you’re looking for a luxury venue that can accommodate your high-end wedding, then you can’t go past Vue de monde. From its prime location within the iconic Rialto Tower on Collins St, Vue de monde has commanded a reputation for excellence and an atmosphere of prestige.

Located on Level 55, this award-winning restaurant dominates the global culinary scene with its seamless blend of European and Modern Australian cuisine. Within walking distance of Southern Cross Station and other Melbourne landmarks, Vue de monde is a breathtaking wedding reception space perfect for intimate micro-weddings or extravagant celebrations.

The Scene at Vue de Monde Weddings Rialto Event Space

Your first impression of Vue de monde begins at the ground level, walking into the world-famous Rialto Tower on Collins St. One of the jewels of the Melbourne CBD, this building is home to luxury brands and global companies that take full advantage of Rialto’s dominating presence.

Shooting up through the sky to Level 55, you arrive at the sleek Vue de monde restaurant. Guests are instantly struck by the venue’s decor; shiny black floors, dark walls, and dimmed lighting create a moody atmosphere that feels exclusive and intimate. Wrapped around the building are strategically placed windows that offer guests prime access to city views that impress regardless of the time of day.

There’s something truly Melbournian about Vue de monde, despite its origins as a high-end French restaurant. The dramatic colour scheme and chic furnishings evoke the sense of unobtrusive style that the city is so known for, though this subtlety is balanced by Vue de monde’s preclusion for extravagance.

There are three distinct rooms available for hire at Vue de monde. The Darwin Room includes exclusive access to the Terrace, an east-facing rooftop area that offers breathtaking views of the city and far beyond.

We find that drinks and roving canapes are best enjoyed 55 floors above the bustling CBD! The Darwin Room is known for being an exercise in luxury, drenched in soft sunlight during the day, dark and mysterious by night.

The Lady Nelson Room is a sophisticated madame with plush furnishings and an air of intimacy. A simple yet stunning canvas, Lady Nelson begs to be dressed up with your vision of floral walls, feature decor, and warm candlelight.

If your guest list keeps climbing higher and higher, why not hire the entire venue? Vue de monde offers exclusive hire of the whole space, including the Darwin and Lady Nelson Rooms (including private access to the Terrace) and extending into the Estuary.

Vue de Monde Rialto Wedding Ceremonies

Wedding ceremonies at Vue de monde are designed to impress. The experienced events team recommend swapping vows in the Estuary, leaving the other two rooms for your reception. You’ll find a dynamic and flexible space in the Estuary that can be arranged to suit intimate ceremony parties.

Many couples choose to host their ceremony offsite at one of the many gorgeous ceremony locations nearby. The Vue de monde planners work closely with their couples to ensure that their wedding day schedule is closely adhered to and will have your reception ready well before your guests make their way up to Level 55. Whilst you’re off taking dreamy wedding snaps around the CBD, the staff will welcome your guests with cocktails and canapes upon arrival.

Some dreamy local ceremony options include a luscious garden ceremony within the nearby Royal Botanic Gardens. Find your perfect spot on one of the many themed lawns and say your vows beneath the vast open sky.

If you’re seeking a religious ceremony, St Paul’s Cathedral is just minutes away near Federation Square. This iconic cathedral features stunning religious iconography and breathtaking architecture.

If you’re more interested in a simple civil affair, the Victorian Marriage Registry is just a short drive away in the Old Treasury Building.

Vue de Monde Rialto Wedding Receptions

Now it’s time for your reception, and Vue de monde never disappoints. As the sun sets on Melbourne, the party atmosphere turns up on Level 55.

With access to the Terrace via the Darwin Room, your guests can experience Melbourne nightlife with a bird’s eye view.

Venue Testimonials

The best culinary experience we have had, it was absolutely excellent! The food was extraordinarily satisfying and the service second to none. The view is to die for and watching the chefs in action is a pleasure. A dining experience we will not forget, thank you very much!

Guy B

Entry is via a partially hidden reception where guests are checked in, then whisked to the 55th floor in a mood-lit elevator, which sets the tone for the restaurant itself. Once upstairs you will be walked through the wine cellar where the enormous collection of wines is apparent, forming an impressive entry to the dining room. Modern decor, dim but functional lighting and an amazing view over the Melbourne skyline greet you, as does the wait staff who are so numerous that they are always there when needed, but also know how and when to stay out of the way.

Dave M

An experience like no other. Mindblowing food and treated like royalty. Very expensive, but so worth the experience. Book in. You won't be sorry.
