The Carousel, Wedding Venue at Albert Park
Looking for a city-based wedding venue that’s spacious and sophisticated with stunning lake views? The Carousel at Albert Park ticks all of these boxes for today’s bride and groom.
Once a public revolving restaurant, this venue has been given a complete makeover and now has the aura of a LA mansion for the rich and famous. Its stunning entrance is graced by twin turquoise reflection pools, a white tiled forecourt complete with palm trees, plus a view straight through the venue foyer to the expansive aquatic background of Albert Park Lake. Understated, natural textured surfaces, including water, wood, marble and terrazzo tiles are a wedding photographer’s playground.
Wedding photography opportunities
Movable glass walls provide an instant inside/outside feel to the venue, virtually doubling your space and bringing you closer to nature. Picture your guests enjoying a pre-dinner cocktail on the massive wooden deck overlooking the lake, while enjoying a twilight view of Melbourne’s city skyline. Your professional Passion8 wedding photographer has the experience and knowledge to take advantage of this setting for casual, yet sophisticated, bridal and group photo shots.
Several ceremony locations are available including the white tiled forecourt, wooden decking area and nearby amphitheatre. All provide a myriad of wedding photo opportunities from classic stylish shots to natural and candid. Day sees a backdrop of rich green grass expanses interspersed with native Australian trees and shrubs, swans, ducks, and colourful sail and rowing boats. At night you have Melbourne’s beautiful city skyline reflected on the lake with the shimmer of the water.
Food and Desire Company
Modern Australian dining is catered by the renowned Food & Desire company who can style every aspect of your wedding from food, flowers and decor. Plenty of hotel accommodation is available nearby, ample parking is provided onsite and it’s only a few minutes’ drive to Melbourne CBD or Port Melbourne Bay.
