The Immigration Museum Weddings
Making an event your own is all about the detail, but first you need a beautiful space. Here the fun starts – we love to create personalised plans for unique events. Whether it’s a sit-down banquet, cocktails at sunset or professional gatherings, we’re sure we can suit your needs in style.
The Old Customs House building is anchored by an impressive, wide ceremonial staircase that leads up to the marble-floored Grand Foyer. Next, move through to the palazzo-style Long Room, with its tall ceilings and Ionic columns that once greeted jostling crowds of travellers arriving in Marvellous Melbourne.
Our Atrium is a beautiful glass conservatory at the rear of Old Customs House, connecting the main building to the Courtyard. This contemporary architectural addition brings the outdoors within, flooding it with natural light while staying protected from the elements. At night, see the city lights twinkle through the transparent roof.
We can accommodate long-table dinners running the entire length of the Atrium, or layout more intimate round tables throughout. Cocktail parties and wedding ceremonies are also perfectly suited. The wide hallway connecting the Atrium to the rest of the museum is home to changing feature exhibitions, usually hanging art that tells a story, creating another interesting aspect that adds to your event’s unique setting.
