And thus it is proving to be a popular location for both Photographic and Television shoots. We acknowledge the importance of keeping Ponsonby Central in the media (in a positive light) and are happy to facilitate your shoot as long as it does not create too much disruption to our tenants, and more importantly our customers!If you are interested in filming in a particular restaurant or retail offering we are happy to put you in touch with the right person. Any general filming of the Ponsonby Central precinct and communal areas you will need to fill out the Filming Application below, and make contact with our Marketing manager Tina Plunkett.

Weddings & FUNCTIONS

The Sapphire Room is the perfect venue for an intimate urban wedding or celebration. The recycled wooden floors give The Sapphire Room the feel of a cool urban loft. You can keep it sparse or dress it to the max, this is a unique space where you can put your own individual stamp on your function.

Quiet & Intimate or large & lively

A brilliant venue for a private party, a charity event, a product launch, a conference, a fashion show or even a cooking class. The Sapphire Room is both functional and adaptable to suit your event. The main function area is laid out as two spacious rooms, divided by giant barn-style sliding doors. Hire one space, or both, depending on your needs. One is kitted out with a high-end kitchen and bar, the other is a more neutral space. 

The Sapphire Room comes scattered with armchairs and leather couches, and there are rustic tables, bench seats and chairs for hire. Or you can bring in whatever furniture, props or styling you need for your own bespoke event.

You may choose to cater your event or send your guests or delegates downstairs into the Lane to eat and drink.

The Space

The main function area is laid out as two spacious rooms, divided by giant barn-style sliding doors. Sapphire 1 is the smaller of the two rooms; at one end fitted with a kitchen complete with the latest top-end appliances. The huge kitchen bench doubles as a bar complete with bar stools, and it lends itself to the more intimate social gathering; a cocktail party, a cooking demonstration, or a product launch.

Sapphire 2 is the larger room, providing an ideal neutral space to stage a conference, a training seminar or team building exercise. Cleverly, when this area is set up for a formal event, you can then swiftly change the scene; sliding back the doors to reveal a "break out’ room for lunch or an end of proceedings drink!

Sapphire 3 is tucked behind Sapphire 2's white soundproof wall. It is a hidden room which can serve as a cloakroom, hair and makeup room, as a place to tuck away any technical equipment, or as a quiet retreat from a wedding function or party.
