Book Your Spacious Engagement Venue

Start your happily ever after by celebrating today.

At Canvas House, we love blending the old with the new.

That’s what makes our immaculately presented warehouse property such a beloved contemporary event space that’s suitable for all of life’s celebrations – including engagement parties.

Our engagement party venue in Melbourne hosts a 6 metre vaulted cathedral-style ceiling and polished concrete flooring- this makes an engagement party at Canvas House the perfect accompaniment to any traditional church wedding. And for couples who want their engagement party or even their wedding to be more modern than traditional, you’ll find the timeless design and airy ambience at Canvas House to be perfectly complementary to your vision.

Your engagement party can set the tone for the rest of your wedding planning and wider nuptial celebrations. Whether you’re looking for a warm and intimate affair or a vibrant, vivacious shindig, you deserve to celebrate your love in style.

Contact our team or call us on 0478 056 390 to book Canvas House as your engagement party venue in Melbourne today.
