Wedding Venue Launceston
The Tailrace Centre is a large yet welcoming wedding reception venue located a short 10 minute drive from Launceston, Tasmania. It’s a wonderful wedding venue for all seasons and budgets, with multiple indoor and outdoor area options available for your ceremony and reception. With professional assistance and advice on hand from their team of wedding co-ordinators, planning a wedding at the Tailrace Centre is a breeze from the first moment you speak with them. The team’s passion for weddings, and deeply held values of love and family are inherent across all aspects of this wedding venue. There is a warm and friendly vibe that you will feel the whole way through planning your wedding there, and an appreciation you will gain about what getting and being married really means.
The largest room on-site, the Freycinet Room, can accommodate up to 400 guests and despite its size is easily transformed into the perfect backdrop for a wedding. If you have a smaller intimate gathering the Tamar Room, or even the Chapel are well suited as your choice of wedding reception room. Included with the basics of tables and chairs, the venue also offers speakers and a PA system, projector, linen, table skirting, fairy lights, seating charts and menus. Reasonably priced styling packages are available for a per head cost, which includes all items being set up and packed down for you. The Tailrace Centre wholeheartedly support couples that wish to get creative and combine their styles and personalities to create their own decorations, making the day completely their own. On most occasions access to the reception room is available from the day prior.
Catering is provided in-house, and packaged options exist for canapes, buffets, set menus and platters; including pizzas. You are also able to create your own menu selection apart from these, and regular ‘Taste and See’ events are held within the centre for you to experience the variety available. All packages are conveniently mindful of gluten and dairy free options, and there are some great vegan choices as well.
Ceremonies are easily tailored to suit personal requirements with variety in space and styling options. Two main outdoor ceremony sites, the Willow Lawn and the River Lawn are tranquil garden spaces nestled in the property. Either area is suited to a picturesque and private ceremony, and included are 30 white padded chairs, an iPod and microphone, and signing table. The Chapel, a modern indoor space, is another option for a ceremony, and if the weather is inclement it provides a useful back up plan. All of these work as a lovely space in themselves, or as a canvas that can be decorated with any style or theme. Whilst there is the option to utilise your own celebrant, three are available on-site that are able to personalise and tailor your vows and ceremony to you and your partner.
The gardens and the café make for well-appointed pre dinner drinks areas while wedding photos are being taken. Guests with children can take advantage of Kids Paradise, an on-site indoor children’s entertainment centre, and for any part of the wedding event there is the option for childminding to be provided within the Centre.
This Launceston wedding venue is dedicated to you and your special day, from the initial meet and greet, to personal appointments and styling meetings, to devoted staff at the wedding. Their focus in their service is about the togetherness between you and your partner, and making your wedding a whole experience – a story – to be cherished. With nothing being too much trouble and all the assistance you need on hand throughout the planning process, their years of wedding planning experience will mean every little aspect is considered. You will have the flexibility to create your day as you want it to be, and all while enjoy your wedding to the full.
