Wedding Ceremonies at The Glasshouse

Wedding ceremonies are also very catered for at the venue.  Equipped with state of the art audio technology and incomparable interior design, your wedding ceremony will not only look sophisticated and modern, but it will sound great too! We’ve all been to weddings where the celebrant’s PA system didn’t quite do the job well enough.   Holding a ceremony at the same venue as the wedding reception also usually saves you a few dollars, as you then don’t have to buy a permit for wherever else you might hold the ceremony.

Why The Glasshouse Stands Out?

There are lots of reasons why The Glasshouse stands out. Apart from its unique design and stunning interior, and great backdrop for wedding photos, it can be booked at an affordable rate, especially when you consider it’s close proximity to the city.
