Finally it’s Adelaide’s turn for a spin on our finds for Industrial style wedding venues! (check out or Melbourne industrial wedding venue roundup and our Sydney industrial wedding venue roundup). Industrial style venues are some of my favourites because of the blank canvas they provide – with character! Polished cement floors, exposed beams and stories within the walls.
Here’s our finds, we’d love to hear any we have missed so leave a comment!
PLEASE NOTE: The Queen’s Theatre is no longer available for wedding hire.
