Since opening its doors in 2014, Blackbird Private Dining & Events has grown to become one of Brisbane's finest function locations. So we caught up with Wedding Coordinator, Chanelle Maracic, keen to find out more about this venue from a wedding viewpoint...

What are the unique and special features of the venue? 

I think our venue's most special feature is the view. Our function space has the most amazing 180 degree view of the river and Story Bridge and all floor to ceiling glass windows make it feel so nice and open so you can really take in and enjoy all the view has to offer.

What is the most memorable wedding that you can recall at your venue? 

It's hard to pick, but the wedding of Rose and James was amazing! They went the extra mile with their styling and the room was full of beautiful candle light and gold accents which complemented the space so well. They also had a tradition of having a drink on the dance floor with friends and family, and there is the greatest picture of one of the grandmothers on the dance floor with the groom enjoying in the fun with them which is such a great moment. You could really tell everyone was just having such a great time and you could feel the love in the room.
