Fremantle Wedding Venues
I'm so lucky to be based in Fremantle which has an abundance of wedding venues! Fremantle is an eclectic, colourful and spirited maritime city with a rich history. I've lived locally in ‘Freo’ for the past few years. I came for the coffee and feel in love with the architecture and museums. Add to that a delicious collision of music, creativity, culture and festivals. And world class food and wine and you have a vibrant city, with a strong identity, that is simply unlike any other.
With all this going on, it won’t surprise you to learn that many people choose to get married in Fremantle and there are some simply stunning wedding venues for them to choose from. As a busy Fremantle wedding photographer, I’m lucky enough to work at all of them, so I’m going to share with you now, my favourite Fremantle wedding venues.
Situated in North Fremantle, the hundred-year-old Guildhall was previously a town hall so has a long history of bringing people together. Today, it has been lovingly restored and re-imagined as an elegant event space. From a secluded pretty courtyard that doubles up as a dancefloor under the stars, to their sumptuous lounge with designer furniture, to the elegant full-service bar that seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor spaces. Guildhall offers spaces for both grand and intimate wedding celebrations.
Assembly Yard is a light-filled and expansive event space with warehouse proportions and clean white walls. Giving couples the freedom to style the space as they wish. It sits in the heart of Fremantle, and is surrounded by landscaped gardens. It has a pretty courtyard that is a sensory experience in itself with fig and olive trees and white flowering rosemary and bougainvillea. And all set against a backdrop of gum trees from the neighbouring Booyeembara Park. I love the way that indoor and outdoor spaces blend so seamlessly allowing guests to spill outside and enjoy the stunning gardens and views.
In the heart of Fremantle in the historic West End, sits the Moore & Moore building. This heritage listed building has a rich history and houses the Moore’s Contemporary Art Gallery that focuses on emerging artists and the Moore & Moore Café which is a magnet for creatives. You can hire the building for bespoke weddings with a casual yet elegant vibe. A charming hidden courtyard and atmospheric candle lit rooms provide the perfect backdrop. And with a reputation for delicious food, they will create a wedding menu that will delight you and your guests.
When given the chance to be witness to weddings at Moore & Moore Café, I love the soft light given off from the candle-lit rooms that I play with to create beautiful storytelling images.
Easily one of Fremantle’s best beachfront restaurants and bars, Coast Port Beach has breath-taking panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, and is licensed to hold wedding ceremonies right there on the beach. Add to that delicious food, and a flexible space to make your wedding as formal and fancy or laidback and casual as you want. And you have all the ingredients for an amazing wedding venue.
Kidogo Arthouse is an award winning, unique music and art experiences venue situated in a magnificent 19th century limestone building on Bathers Beach in Fremantle. This versatile wedding space offers multiple eclectic spaces both indoors and out for a truly unique wedding. Their indoor spaces are abundant with rustic charm and their outdoor spaces really make the best of their sea front location.
I love summer ceremonies on the Kidogo Arthouse Deck. With its pared back style and unspoilt views of the Indian Ocean, it’s an idyllic setting for an outdoor wedding ceremony and a chilled out drinks reception.
Tradewinds Hotel is a luxury Fremantle hotel with sweeping views of Perth’s Swan River. They offer six separate elegant function venues both inside and out for weddings. Allowing you to mix and match to create your own perfect wedding. All of them are stylish, light and bright spaces that you can decorate to your taste.
I love outdoor ceremonies on their roof top terrace and palm balcony. The gentle breeze at outdoor ceremonies brings extra movement to my images, that really suits my style of documentary wedding photography.
So, if you’re currently thinking of getting married in, or planning your wedding in Fremantle. I hope this has been helpful to you. These venues are of course all stunning, but you don’t have to take my word for it. The best part of planning a wedding is getting to visit beautiful venues in stunning locations. So have fun with it!
