Getting to the heart of why couples book venues is key!
Step inside The Trust and you’re transported back in time to the glamour and sophistication of an unforgettable era – The Roaring 20’s. For history buffs, this beauty is the original Port of Melbourne Authority Building – Heritage listed with a generous nod to the Beaux-Arts style. Think dark polished woods, striking marble floors, dramatic windows, and luxurious open spaces, hanging pendant lighting.
Naturally, the hopeless romantic in me wanted a first-hand account. I wanted a peek behind the curtains to see what it was really like for a couple to celebrate their big day at this iconic, Flinders Lane, “Manhattan meets Melbourne” venue.
And golly! What a treat we have for you.
ENJOY, CAMILLA x

first impressions of the venue
venue style and vibe - "It's visually spectacular"
“I truly think that if you’re after a metropolitan style wedding you just can’t not choose The Trust once you see it. The outside of the building is stunning. 1920s build with the old-world glamor that comes with that time. The inside is all of that and more. It’s visually spectacular!”.
layout + spaces
“Functionally it’s massive so can fit any size but the layout allows you to expand and shrink areas as required. We were able to use one area for our cocktail party, a separate area for food, a third space for dancing. Opening and closing those spaces with creative use of seating. It kept all of our guests together to maximise that fun vibe”

It’s actually hilarious (we’re talking hot sweats, ceremony oyster shucking, enthusiastic flower girls, the parent dismount, half time oranges, city pizza slices and of course the full run down of the epic celebration at The Trust, which, in his words was “Electric”. #sweetcaroline
