If you’ve recently popped the question, and provided the answer was yes, then you are no doubt more than a little excited. Your friends and loved ones will be too. That means it’s time to organise some engagement party venue hire. Harbour Kitchen have the premier location, various food and beverage options and sound system covered, but there are a few things for you to consider to make this a party to rival your wedding day.


Hosting a themed party is a great way to get guests engaged and is the ultimate icebreaker. You could opt for the cool elegance of the 1920s, choose a simple but bold black and white theme, or host a Bollywood extravaganza. Throughout our years as party venue hire specialists, we’ve seen an extraordinary array of themed parties and love to accommodate them. With this in mind, the only limit when choosing a theme is your imagination.

Time of day

Like your Harbour Kitchen party venue hire, engagement parties are also flexible. It’s worth remembering that parties are not restricted to the evening. A champagne brunch with some easy listening music is a great way to kick off a day, a sophisticated morning tea can add a touch of class to proceedings or a lunch date can be as informal or as elegant as you please. Similarly, afternoon and evening engagement parties work just as well. There is still no better ways to celebrate any milestone than wining and dining, before hitting the dance floor until late.


Love should well and truly be in the air at your engagement party venue hire. This can come in many different forms depending on your taste. Beautiful floral arrangements and gentle lighting are the ideal complement to Harbour Kitchen’s stunning views. Others might decide on some very personal tributes, such as poetry, photography or symbols of your shared interests such as books or music.
