We love hosting wedding receptions and are passionate about making every couples day amazing and unforgettable. Here is just some of the amazing feedback we have received.


“After an intimate elopement, we celebrated our marriage with our closest friends and family at Factory 51. From our initial enquiry, Ellie was friendly and knowledgeable. She guided us through the process of planning an event and was always happy to answer our questions. We attended two tastings and were warmly greeted and assisted by staff on both occasions. Megan was available on the night of our celebration to assist where needed, although we didn’t need to seek her out as she ran the night beautifully, which allowed us to enjoy the company of our guests and not worry about a thing. The function room itself is stunning – the chandelier, red bricks and neon sign are just a few of our favourite design elements. The cost of the evening was also very pleasing. We would highly recommend Factory 51 as the venue for your next celebration!”

“My son and now daughter in laws wedding and reception were held at your establishment on Saturday evening and I just wanted to express my absolute satisfaction with the premises, menu, and particularly the function co ordination. Megan was just a delight to deal with on the day – nothing to much trouble from set up to the clean out the next morning. She is so professional, polite and courteous. She is an absolute asset to your enterprise. The hospitality staff were equally delightful to deal with and old mate Thor the barman and his co workers sensational. So many of the guests commented on the venue and quality of service. I am sure Lachlan and Caitlin will give you more feedback but I just wanted to let you know how wonderful the event went. We have dined at the restaurant many times with fiends and it too is a credit to the owners and staff.”

“We have just got back from our honeymoon and wanted to say a big thank you for such a wonderful reception! We had the best time! Our guests gave us rave reviews of the food, venue & particularly the service! So many of them were so impressed at how attentive everyone was.  Just wanted to say thank you! It was such a fun night for us & our guests!”

“We recently held our wedding reception at Factory 51 and WOW! The room looked spectacular, the food was amazing, and the evening ran like clockwork. They went above and beyond to ensure the day was perfect, nothing was too much trouble, and our guests noticed and commented how engaged and attentive the staff were (especially behind the bar!) Matt was a total professional in the lead-up, answering our multitude of questions quickly, and put us at ease during periods of confusion and indecision. My husband and I had the most amazing evening, we cannot recommend Factory 51 highly enough! ”

“We just wanted to say a massive THANKYOU for everything you did for our wedding on Friday. Everything was so beautiful and perfect and our day really couldn’t have been any better. Thankyou for being so reliable and on top of everything, the organisation and the flow of everything was amazing and you’ve even managed to perfect all the little details, while still keeping things really relaxed! Everyone was raving about how perfect the venue was, it was the best setting we could’ve hoped for, we can’t thank you enough. Please thank the chef for us also, and the servers, the food and delivery was impeccable. So much appreciation, thanks for contributing in such a big way to the best day we’ve ever had! ”

“Just wanted to say (a very belated) thank you for making our wedding the most incredible event anyone could have asked for.  Alec and I are so grateful for everything you did from start to finish. From the service, the food, the wine – it was all 5 stars and literally nobody could fault a single thing. You’re some of the best in the biz!  We had rave reviews from the guests, one quote from someone was “It was the best food ever, let alone best wedding food”, I have to agree!! Unfortunately I think sometimes we are accustomed to expecting sub-par service, food and wine for weddings and I am so glad we picked a place where not only do you meet expectation but far exceed them. “

“Guys we had an absolutely fabulous night. I really felt the bar staff were top notch and service was faultless. I do not ever say that about a place but honestly they really assisted in every way to make the night run smoothly. Josh is really the silent achiever he knows how to get things done with minimal fuss. Many thanks to all for creating a wonderful 10th wedding anniversary evening for us. ”

“Thank you Beau for going above and beyond when our florist didn’t deliver enough foliage. And of course thank you for our wonderful reception!! We had such an amazing evening. And married life is ?. ”
