Launceston Wedding Reception Venue
Penny Royal Launceston is a modern, one-of-a-kind wedding venue set in the heart of Launceston, Tasmania. Located at the city entrance to the Cataract Gorge and few minute’s walk away from the CBD, several perfect wedding ceremony and reception spaces sit within the recently redeveloped Penny Royal food, wine and adventure precinct. This surprising mix of old and new maintains the charm of the old Penny Royal but enhances the space to be a stylish and sophisticated wedding venue, perfect for relaxed yet discerning couples.
Bringing a wealth of experience in wedding and events, you will have a dedicated function coordinator who is available by appointment to talk you through every step of your ceremony and reception. You’ll be welcome to make the day your own with complete flexibility in the use of the whole Penny Royal venue. With an understanding that every couple and wedding is different, they will assist in planning to design a wedding day personalised to you and your partner.
Tailored use of the venue includes options for exclusive use and inclusion of Penny Royal attractions. Packaging can include the adventure rides within the theme park; the Dark Ride and the cliff walk are perfect additions for your adventurous guests! You’re also welcome to book a proper 32 pound cannon firing ring to boldly initiate your ceremony or reception.
You have complete flexibility in menu selection which can be tailored to your style of dining and all dietary requirements. Delicious seasonal food is key to the cuisine; select from a variety of canapé and seated dinner packages, even degustation with matching wine experiences. Full bar facilities are available with tap, craft and international beverages, with Relbia Estate wines and Josef Chromy wines on offer (the latter being a sister company to the Penny Royal).
The entire Penny Royal venue is available to you for your wedding ceremony, and there’s every reason to consider a ceremony spot that’s something completely unique here! It offers landscaped grounds with a backdrop of the the lake, waterfall and surrounding towering cliffs. The Wine Bar deck that looks over the grounds is joined to the indoor wine bar and is your ideal wet weather option. Alternately, the top of the lookout over Launceston and the Tamar River is a stunning viewpoint for a wedding ceremony to be remembered.
Your wedding reception can be held in any of the venue’s rooms and there are options for small private weddings through to parties of up to 400 guests. Every space offers views of the complex and the Fort stage, which can be utilised for your band or even speeches for larger groups. Accessible underground and in the middle of the lake it’s a ideal way to make the most of the unique details that make up the Penny Royal.
Over the day, you will find the venue translates beautifully from day to night. As the sun sets, the setting changes to a magical atmosphere with tall trees wrapped in fairy lights and splendid uplighting on the cliffs and buildings.
Your reception space is completely private and yours for the duration of the wedding. Upon entrance to the buildings, modern clean lines with accents of timber and grey are highlighted with warm inviting room lighting, making the venue a elegant and very comfortable setting.
Restaurant and Boardwalk
The main restaurant and boardwalk space is located on the ground level. Inside, it’s bright a spacious but can be sectioned to allow for a more intimate reception. Walk straight out onto the deck or into the enclosed terrace area, both of which are a way of extending the space for a dance floor.
This part of the building offers the best views of the impressive 20x10m water screen which, should you wish to utilise it, can showcase videos, photos or a slideshow in the middle of the lake.
Wine Bar and Deck
The private upstairs indoor wine bar leads onto the large outdoor deck, which can be completely undercover or opened to take advantage of a warm starry night. It’s a perfect spot for your wedding ceremony and cocktail reception for up to 150 people. This spot overlooks the boardwalk and can be styled to suit your wedding guests with casual seating and bar tables.
