WHAT MAKES ENTANGLED EVENTS UNIQUE?
Where do we start? We are an artisan inspired historic building with a dramatic, botanical style. We ooze charm and individuality. Not only are we artists, but we are also hospitality professionals. We have a whole host of experience and creative energy and love a challenge. We are not just a venue – we are an experience! And we love to give you more than what you bargained for – we just can’t help ourselves!
HOW MANY GUESTS DO YOU HOLD?
|Cocktail Style||Seated Event|
|Flow through spaces (up & down, inside and outside)||200||100|
DO YOU HAVE MANY DATES AVAILABLE?
YES – there is a good chance that we have your date available. Entangled Events are fresh and new, yet with truck-loads of experience and expertise!
DO YOU HAVE A ONE-WEDDING-PER-DAY POLICY AND WILL WE HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THE VENUE?
Absolutely – Yes! You alone are the stars of the show on any given date.
ARE THERE SPECIAL RATES FOR CERTAIN DAYS OF THE WEEK?
Talk to us about reducing the rate for a Monday though to Wednesday (non public holiday)
HOW MUCH TIME DO WE HAVE AT THE VENUE AND IS THERE A CHARGE FOR ADDITIONAL HOURS?
We allow a three-hour time slot for a ceremony. Receptions may kick-off directly after the ceremony or include a Garden Party pre-dinner drinks and canapes arrangement. Otherwise, receptions generally begin at 5:30pm and conclude at 10:30pm. Should you wish to continue for a further hour, a $300 charge will apply to cover staffing costs, plus there will be extra charges for an extra hour of drinks (price dependent on the package you are on).
HOW FLEXIBLE ARE YOUR PACKAGES? CAN SUBSTITUTIONS BE MADE?
It’s your day, and we will accommodate changes wherever possible. Let’s chat.
DO YOU HAVE RECOMMENDED VENDORS AND IF SO, ARE WE ABLE TO USE OTHER VENDORS NOT ON YOUR LIST?
We are happy to help with recommendations of services tried and true including a great list of local vendors. We ask for a full list of your chosen vendors and introductions prior to your date to ensure the smooth running of your event.
IS THERE A WET WEATHER BACK-UP PLAN?
Absolutely – if rain is imminent, we can move your ceremony upstairs to the mezzanine. Post ceremony refreshments and the reception can be bought indoors.
IS THERE AN IN-HOUSE VENUE WEDDING COORDINATOR?
Yes! This is all part of our service and expertise. On the day, we will manage all things to do with your wedding ceremony and reception, from the time of the ceremony to the conclusion of the reception.
We will need to schedule at least two meetings to go through your details and requests. We will then construct a time-line and be present on the day to ensure that all goes according to plan.
Whilst the coordination of additional services including celebrant, entertainment etc. is not our responsibility, we will do our best to work with them on the day to ensure everything is seamless and stress free.
Note: By way of distinction, a “wedding planner” is someone else you separately employ to plan/coordinate ALL elements of your wedding. We do not offer this service.
HOW EARLY CAN WE (AND ANY VENDORS) ARRIVE FOR SET-UP?
Generally speaking, the space will be available to your stylists, florist etc from 9am the day of your wedding. If we don’t have a private function the day prior we will do our best to make the space available to you for three hours from 5pm the night before.
DO YOU OFFER ASSISTANCE WITH THE SET-UP OF THE RECEPTION ROOM?
Yes, definitely! If you choose to hire equipment, this is to be managed by you (unless you choose our design and styling service). We will be present on the day to assist in re-arranging and making way for your additions. If you choose to employ us as your stylist on the day, then complete set-up and pack-down is taken care of.
WHAT SORT OF TABLES AND CHAIRS DO YOU HAVE AND IS THERE MORE THAN ONE OPTION?
We have beautiful recycled wooden trestle tables, wooden slab tables, an eclectic assortment of wooden chairs and stools and rustic character dry-bars. If you choose to have extra furniture, extra furniture hire is to be managed by you.
WHAT TABLEWARE/SILVERWARE/GLASSWARE/LINEN IS AVAILABLE?
Our all-inclusive packages include quality classic styled table ware. Of course, your celebration can be personalised with whatever accompaniments you may choose, organised by you for further costs.
HOW ABOUT DECORATING ITEMS LIKE MENUS, CENTREPIECES AND BONBONNIERES?
Our space is resplendent with gorgeous centrepiece options and we are happy to include these in our fully inclusive packages. You may like to place a special order for something specific ( like orchids on golden vine) and in this case an extra charge will be necessary. Alternatively, organisation is up to you.
We can also chat with you about bonbonniere options; we have some fabulous ideas! You may even like to consider coming along to a workshop to have a go at making them yourselves. We suggest you arrange the menus to be printed to match your invitations.
DO YOU HAVE SIGNAGE TO DIRECT GUESTS TO THE WEDDING?
Yes, we have some great looking black-boards and signage options for you to choose from.
WHAT AREAS AND DECORATING OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR CEREMONIES?
You may choose to marry outside in our beautiful scented arbor. We love this spot; it is very earthy and romantic complete with chandelier and a beautiful green backdrop.
Alternatively, Ceremonies upstairs on the mezzanine have an undeniable magic. We suggest a professional and stunning floral installment underneath the beautiful arched window – it is a photographer’s dream!
We provide for several different “looks”, including signing table and arbor options and beautiful wooden chairs. Should you wish to include fresh floral work, we are happy to work in with your florist.
DOES THE VENUE HAVE AN IN-HOUSE CATERER?
Our Entangled Chefs provide a delicious on-trend menu; Chef works a very slick, professional operation. Our kitchens are right next door, providing a seamless service across all spaces.
DO WE HAVE TO USE THEM, OR ARE WE ABLE TO USE OUR OWN CATERER?
Our service includes all food and beverages.
ARE WE ABLE TO DO A TASTING BEFORE DECIDING ON THE MENU?
Definitely! You can sample our delicious menu items at Entangle Cafe.
While every possible effort is taken to maintain menus, items may need to be changed subject to availability. No food is to be bought into the venue other than wedding cake.
WHAT TIME WILL THE MEAL SERVED, WITH WHAT INTERVALS BETWEEN EACH COURSE?
This is completely up to you. We will discuss options and draw up a timeline at our initial meeting.
DO YOU CATER FOR SPECIAL DIETARY REQUIREMENTS?
Yes! We specialise in healthy vegan and gluten free options.
CAN WE BRING IN A CAKE FROM AN OUTSIDE BAKER?
Yes, absolutely! We will need to discuss the size of the cake to make adequate provision for it. We have a variety of different cake table options for you to choose from.
IS THERE A CHARGE FOR CUTTING AND SERVING THE CAKE?
Cake is served on platters as a part of your package. Alternatively, your cake can be cut and served as dessert with a berry coulis for $7 pp.
HOW IS ALCOHOL PRICED?
We have included drinks as a part of the fully inclusive package. Please see separate drinks menu options.
ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL CHARGES FOR BAR STAFF OR WAITING STAFF?
There is no extra charge for wait staff up until 10.30pm.
A NOTE ON RESPONSIBLE SERVICE OF ALCOHOL
Alcohol is not permitted to be bought onto the premises. Entangle Events supports patron care. It is illegal to serve alcohol to (1) an intoxicated person (2) disorderly patrons (3) or patrons under 18 years of age.
IS THERE A DANCE FLOOR?
The mezzanine level serves as a perfect dance floor with room for a band or DJ.
Alternatively, you may like to hire a rustic outdoor dance floor – such a pretty option under fairy lights and foliage.
ARE THERE ANY NOISE RESTRICTIONS THAT WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT?
Sound should be no higher than 75 decibels. Music must conclude at 11pm at the latest. We reserve the right to control the quality, style and volume of any entertainment booked.
WHAT IF WE WANT UNUSUAL ENTERTAINMENT? FOR EXAMPLE, FIREWORKS OR FIRE DANCERS.
Given the age of the building and outdoor bamboo installment, we are sorry but any type of fire, including fireworks is prohibited.
WHAT TIME WILL OUR GUESTS HAVE TO LEAVE THE VENUE?
Drinks package and staff costs conclude at 10.30pm.
ARE THERE ANY PENALTIES FOR STAYING LATER?
Guests may leave at 11.30 at the latest with a further charge of $300 for the last hour.
GIVE US THE LOW-DOWN ON ANY DECORATING ITEMS THAT WE’VE BROUGHT OURSELVES?
To maintain a high standard, integrity and condition of our beautiful building and grounds, we ask that you (or your florist, stylist etc) consult with us prior to installing any display or decor item. No candles or naked flames are permitted anywhere within the venue except those used at the sole discretion of Entangled management. Confetti is not permitted. All personal items must be taken down on the night of the event. We can put them in our back storage room for pick-up between 8 – 10 the following morning. We will take all reasonable care to protect personal property but accept no responsibility of the loss or damage of merchandise or other property within the premises, prior to, during or after the function.
