Weddings and Ceremonies

Fenix Events is a beautiful option for unique wedding ceremonies in a natural, riverside setting. With a spectacular view of the river, surrounded by greenery, your ceremony will be one to remember!

Wedding ceremonies at Fenix Events can be held outdoors or indoors, both with beautiful views and modern comfort. Couples can marry outside on our River Terrace and then move indoors for their reception as the sun sets. Or, if you’re just after a ceremony only location, you can say ‘I do’ inside the venue with up to 300 friends and family looking out through floor to ceiling windows at the Yarra and treetops.

Fenix’s riverside setting creates an effortlessly beautiful ceremony backdrop. The architecturally stunning building will impress guests as they approach, whilst our experienced team will ensure your friends and family are well looked after and ready before you arrive at the ceremony.

Fenix offers an extensive and premium beverage selection.

Local, and internationally sourced wines, beers and cocktails designed to enhance the flavours of our food, and to inspire the senses of our guests. All our beverages are carefully selected based on their versatility and their ability to be paired with your menu.

The Fenix beer selections are varied, premium and come from both local and international breweries, offering a recognizable and inspired list from which to choose.
Our cocktails have been created to be the showcase item at your event. From familiar classics to signature selections which are quintessentially Melbourne, our cocktails will give your guests an exciting night that they will never forget. Our wines are versatile pouring varieties, designed to complement (rather than overpower) your menu choices.

Fenix offers an unforgettable culinary experience.

We believe exceptional events require exceptional food and our event menus are designed to impress. Our approach to food is fresh and innovative; we love creating simple yet mouth-watering menus which reflect the seasons and incorporate widely sourced ingredients. Having won national awards for our menus, we are happy to promise your guests nothing but the very best.

Our style is modern, reflecting the look and feel of our event venue.
We have a range of menus to suit the range of events we host, but for something more tailored, we will always be excited to work with our clients to design a menu to suit their requirements.

The Fenix kitchen is run by a dynamic and experienced team of chefs, led by Maple Event Group’s Executive Chef Roland Gordon.
