Choosing the ideal function venue for your next event

  • Logistics – Ensuring your guests, as well as yourself, can make it to and from the location easily and safely is a major consideration for choosing the ideal venue. Access to public transport, taxis, as well as parking, are factors to think about when making your choice.
  • Acoustics and dancefloor – Having your first wedding dance on a tiny or uneven floor, while the music sounds like it is playing underwater is black mark on your special day. Inspect the dancefloor, making sure it will be suitable for the size of your party, and ask to hear music in the space.
  • Capacity – A location that is too big or small will affect the enjoyment of you and your guests. Many venues are flexible and can alter the layout to cater for a spectrum of guest numbers, ensuring everyone gets a seat.
