Today’s venues spotlight is: Indiana @ Cottesloe
This iconic venue located in Perth’s western suburbs corridor and bordered by the Indian Ocean has had several versions of the current name over the years with the same glorious view; however I am pleased that it has remained in it simplest form: Indiana :)
Indiana has the benefit of being located just a hop, skip & jump away from the glistening ocean complimenting its “hampton” style decor and vibe. With the venue being quite versatile in its design there are several options of how the venue can be used to your specific use. There is of course the “exclusive” use of the entire venue, the pavilion or the private ocean room all of which have uninterrupted views of its stunning shoreline.
I have personally had the privilege of designing a wedding at Indiana and had a wonderful experience (both the food & service) with a previous venue coordinator, so I was eager to meet with the new one, Annette Advani. I met Annette last week and it was so refreshing to discuss all aspects of wedding planning, as well as getting to know her extensive experience of working in hospitality. Her willingness to embrace new ideas and her very pleasant nature are sure to be a winning combination.
As a wedding planner, I am often asked for recommendations on all wedding related topics, and although there a lots of people that can provide a service its the personable nature and the willingness to listen & assist that really sets the vendors apart. Annette showed genuine interest in me and my credentials & didn’t scoff at the idea of working with a wedding planner; in fact she embraced it and was all too happy to keep me in mind for some of her clients :)
If you are looking for a venue with character this is one that fits the bill. The versatility of this venue can accommodate a chandelier with ceiling silks or alternatively it can take on a boho chic style with paper lanterns. I would be more than happy to recommend Indiana with Annette at the wedding/function helm as you would be in very capable hands. The view and location really sells itself but its the staff behind the view that will close the deal.
As the weather takes a turn towards Spring , take a drive and visit Indiana @ Cottesloe for your next function or lunch and visit their website : http://indiana.com.au and don’t forget to mention Natalie from www.carteblancheweddings.com.au sent you.
