We love hosting wedding receptions and are passionate about making every couples day amazing and unforgettable!


“Hi Matt & Team,  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! ”


“Hi Beau, Matt & Team, 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. ”


“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your wonderful hospitality on our wedding night.  The food was amazing, the space looked spectacular and all the staff were so friendly and helpful.  We had the best time and our guests did too.”


“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 ?. ”

“Just wanted to drop a quick note to say THANK YOU for all your help yesterday! You and your team did an amazing job, thank you so much for having the tables already setup and also for being so understanding with all our last minute changes. The venue looked fantastic and the food was delicious!!!”
