Footscray Wedding Venue in Melbourne's Inner West

The word is spreading, Studio Raw Materials is on trend and a stand out Wedding Reception Venue. 

Just 6 Kilometers from Melbourne’s CBD, our Melbourne Studio and Warehouse can be transformed into a unique and stylish Wedding venue.

With our industrial and rustic backdrop, you can choose to have a formal sit down wedding or a stand up Cocktail party.

We are among the Chefs in Melbourne's West making headways into the city's food scene!  Choose a package from our unique wedding menu options including our scrumptious shared platters.

We have been described as Classy, Industrial Style, Rustic and Retro Chic.  Some of our Weddings have stood out so much, they were featured in Hello May, Polka Dot Bride, Hooray Magazine and Hitched Magazine! 

Whatever your style, we can adapt our venue to suit you.  We can give you a blank canvas for a wedding stylist or for you to use your creative flair!

The Studio also caters for Engagement Parties, Hens' Days, Pre-Wedding Parties, Kitchen Teas and High Teas!

”We found Studio Raw Materials... We wanted somewhere we could put our own stamp on, and that was industrial, but the biggest pre-requisite – food! The food had to be outstanding. It’s a fantastic space that runs corporate cooking classes, and has a full television set kitchen inside a warehouse. Totally unique, totally us! Rob was amazing from the get-go, he worked with us and we still are told it was the best food anyone has had at a wedding.”
~ Caroline and Adam.

“Adam and Caz used your venue for their wedding reception and it was fantastic. The food was wonderful and we had a great time... Great to also have the kitchen open for all to see the wonderful food being prepared before it appeared on the tables."
~ Proud Mother of the Groom. Cheryl

Raw Materials Studio, Footscray was chosen as the celebration venue... “This warehouse is an amazing space and provided us the perfect opportunity to add our own personal touches.”
~ Leila

What a fabulous venue you have!  I had the best time celebrating Adam on Caroline’s Wedding... and the menu... was absolutely outstanding. Thank you!”
  ~ Meriki, Marriage Celebrant

"Hi Rob, Thank you so much for making our wedding so brilliant.  All we've heard since Saturday was that our wedding was the best anyone has ever been too.  The food was AMAZING, the staff were brilliant and of course, you're the best.  I thought you might like to see the group photo and we will send you some more venue pictures when we get the professional shots. Katie and Sean"
