SISJ LIFESTYLE: ALTO WEDDINGS & DAMM FINE FOOD >
If you are engaged and seeking a wedding venue, or single and dreaming of your wedding day… (!!!) I have the space for you! One word, ALTO @ GPO. ALTO is one of Melbourne’s premiere event spaces and I was lucky enough to celebrate their new unveiling last week. This exquisite space is not limited to weddings though, they also cater for seminars, luncheons, product launches and cocktail parties – you name it, they can make it happen (and look beyond your wildest expectations!).
Today I will share with you my amazing experience, the food and my thoughts on the venue. Last Wednesday we were wined and dined by the best-in-the-biz: Georgina Damm from Damm Fine Food and Alan Nelson from Lauren Perrier. We were treated to a ‘pretend wedding’, a complete mock-up of what it could look like (including the wine matched three course meal and a mini three tier wedding cake!). I met some lovely people and had the pleasure of sitting next to wedding and event guru, Patrick Price, from FJORDE MAGAZINE.
ALTO WEDDINGS > The new ALTO space is versatile and draws inspiration from the city skyline panoramic views. With its floor-to-ceiling glass walls and huge outdoor terrace, the space still feels warm and inviting. The stunning new refurb by Kate Hannaford from Moth Design has created the perfect template for any bride or function to make it their own. I couldn’t help myself on the night, telling everyone I was going to marry again purely so I could use this space! I also love how ALTO has really captured the spirit of Melbourne – fashion, great food, beautiful architecture, in the middle of the action, but all in a way where you feel like you’re in a secret garden three stories high! Whether it’s a wedding or another function (like my 30th – hint hint!), it is such a fantastic space.
DAMM FINE FOOD > Georgina’s philosophy is that sharing fresh, lovingly prepared food is nurturing and good for the soul. And that experience is made more joyful by transforming spaces that delight and surprise. Today Damm Fine Food is recognised as a leading Melbourne event management and catering company, providing imaginative food and design from boardrooms to weddings and some of Victoria’s largest events. Following her principal of sharing all things food, Georgina has had regular appearances on radio and television. There is no doubt, that central to it all is Georgina’s ability to plan and execute an event with minimum fuss and maximum style. This energy and passion keeps Damm Fine Food at the forefront of event catering in Melbourne.
