Re­cep­tion space in heart of Wan­garatta

Myrtleford Times - - Wedding Guide -

IN the eight years since it opened in 2009, many have ex­pe­ri­enced Wan­garatta Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre (WPAC) as a ver­sa­tile and di­verse per­for­mance, event and con­fer­ence space.

What is not is well known is that, for all this time, the venue’s memorial hall has long been a pop­u­lar space for wed­ding re­cep­tions.

The con­tem­po­rary, mod­ern space boasts im­mac­u­late pol­ished floor­boards and can be set up to suit many dif­fer­ent styles of re­cep­tion, from an in­ti­mate gath­er­ing of around 50 peo­ple to a large cel­e­bra­tion seat­ing 250.

WPAC’s Elisha Naish said that the cen­tre’s hard­work­ing team can dec­o­rate and set up the space in a num­ber of dif­fer­ent ways, and ta­ble lay­outs can be tra­di­tional round ta­bles or long tres­tle ta­bles with ban­quet seat­ing.

Hir­ers can dec­o­rate to their own theme, and those want­ing to lend mul­ti­me­dia el­e­ments or spe­cial light­ing de­signs to their spe­cial day can dis­cuss their needs with the staff.

Cater­ing can also be han­dled on­site by the staff at In­ter­mezzo Café.

Mrs Naish said those look­ing to hold a re­cep­tion at the hall can ex­pect con­ti­nu­ity of ser­vice, deal­ing with the same per­son through­out the plan­ning stages un­til the big day.

She added that WPAC con­tin­ues to be pop­u­lar as a cen­tral venue be­cause of its spa­cious, light­filled foyer, pic­turesque sur­rounds and cen­tral Wan­garatta lo­ca­tion – close to many churches, parks and ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions.

Cock­tail re­cep­tions can be held in the foyer or ad­join­ing grass area, or the grass area could even be booked for an in­ti­mate cer­e­mony if need be.

While deal­ing with a range of dif­fer­ent ven­dors dur­ing wed­ding plan­ning can be stress­ful, Ms Barry said WPAC has a solid work­ing re­la­tion­ship with a range of ex­ter­nal hir­ers in Wan­garatta and could help make wed­ding plan­ning a snap.

She added that they are all too happy to rec­om­mend lo­cal ac­com­mo­da­tion or ven­dors them­selves.

For those re­cep­tions fea­tur­ing guests with dis­abil­i­ties or mo­bil­ity is­sues, the venue, and the re­cep­tion area it­self, fea­tures ramp ac­cess.
