The Refinery Brisbane | Ryan & Dean

The Refinery is one of my favourite Brisbane wedding venues. The Staff are amazing, the minimal design, the ceremony space being literally meters from the reception area. Everything about this place gives you the perfect modern elegant canvas on which to paint your own wedding dreams onto. Ryan & Dean certainly did just that. They ditched the formal sit-down and went for a more casual wedding reception and focussed on having a really big party. This wedding is a great example of how to keep the celebration front and centre and have the best time with your family and friends without a lot of fuss. The Refinery is the perfect location for this type of celebration. It’s gorgeous no fuss space yields itself to focussing on the people and maximising your time at the party rather than trekking across multiple locations and having too many moving pieces slowing down the party.

The guys opted to have some of their photos before the ceremony in the surrounds of the Calile hotel so that they could spend as much time with their guests as possible and only sneak out for a quick sunset run around the streets nearby the Refinery later in the afternoon. Getting some of your bridal party photos out of the way pre-ceremony is a great option for city weddings where you can use tall buildings to give you shade during the midday hours. If you’re getting married for example at a gold coast wedding venue out in a field that may not work so well. If you’ve got a more country style venue sometimes a patch of bushland or forest can give you somewhere nice to go that’s not bright and you won’t look like you’re squinting in all of your pictures.

If you’re thinking of getting married in Brisbane and considering the Refinery as your wedding venue I would absolutely love to be considered as your photographer. It’s definitely not essential to choose a wedding photographer who’s photographed the venue you choose but it definitely helps.
