Wedding FAQ

Are pets allowed at The Co-Op?

Yes, pets are allowed outside for ceremony and any photographs. Once food is served, pets should depart the venue.

No, we are a licensed venue and provide drinks packages included in our wedding packages. We have draught beverages on tap, as well as a great selection of cocktails and wine (on tap and bottled). R.S.A certified bar staff are included in your package, based on your final numbers.

Due to council regulations and respect for neighbouring homes, our curfew is 10pm. Music is to be lowered to an ambient level while guests depart the venue.

The average wedding ceremony runs for 30-45min, and we allow 1 hour with congratulations, post ceremony before the Bridal party may like to depart for their wedding photo’s offsite. Considering a 10pm curfew and a seven-hour beverage package, dinner, dancing and speeches, we would expect the most appropriate time for your guests to arrive would be between 1.30pm – 2.30pm. Please ask for our sample runsheet as a guide for your day.

We have no restrictions on what day/s you can hold your wedding at The Co-Op? Weddings held Monday-Thursday may receive a discounted rate.

The Co-Op can accommodate weddings between 80 – 200 guests, with a sweet spot of 180 guests. This includes an indoor dance floor space.

Our packages are priced for 80-140 guests. If you have more guests on your list, let us know and we will provide an additional price per person, based on your specific numbers.

The Co-Op has a beautiful champagne coloured marquee, which is 9m x 15m. It has a champagne ceiling and clear walls. The marquee is included in your package.

We request the use of mini-buses for your guests to arrive and depart The Co-Op.
