We feel very privileged to be part of so many gorgeous weddings here at Showtime Events Centre and Cargo Hall and are honoured to be chosen time and time again to play such a big role by our stunning newlyweds to be.

Our philosophy is ‘every detail matters’ and we LOVE nothing more than putting on a night to remember that keeps our couples and their guests raving long after the day is over.

From the outside our job looks very glamorous – and whilst we can’t imagine doing anything else – let me tell you there is plenty of blood, sweat and tears (all good ones of course) behind the scenes. Hours upon hours of meticulous planning goes into every single wedding with lots of long hours (did we mention this already?), late nights (with the occasional pizza run to keep us sane), never ending email trails and checklists is what we live for in the pursuit for perfection for every wedding we have the pleasure of hosting.

Everyone of our lovely couples has an dedicated Wedding Producer looking after them (AKA Karinda or Darcy) as their main contact with a wider team of professional behind each wedding.

From our award winning team of chefs who spend countless hours prepping, chopping, cooking and carefully creating the amazing dishes they produce for every wedding – not to mention our infamous Margarita Arancini Balls! To our dedicated and passionate Operations team led by the one and only Roan who tirelessly set up the venue, carefully placing each table in position, to polishing every wine glass and piece of cutlery; we really couldn’t do it without them!

Finally heading up the entire show is our General Manager, Brad Dabbs. Brad has been with Showtime from the beginning and therefore knows the venue inside and out, not to mention his years of experience across the industry, he knows how to put on a good show!

We hope you enjoyed getting to know us a little better and we look forward to sharing more with you in 2017!

Love the Showtime Family xx
