An outdoor venue is very much a matter of individual taste, however choosing a garden setting for your ceremony and reception offers you the flexibility and freedom to design a unique event to celebrate your special day.
Some couples might prefer a traditional church wedding ceremony followed by a reception in the gardens. Others may choose to have their ceremony and reception in the gardens, adding an informal and relaxed feel to the occasion. Guests will experience being a part of nature’s glorious colour palette, taking in the birdlife and smelling the freshly blossoming flowers as they relax and enjoy your celebrations. A garden creates a special feeling of privacy and intimacy no matter how many guests are invited.
What wonderful memories your guests will have. In fact, many guests tell us they feel so relaxed they don’t want to leave.
Whether you have brilliant sunshine, clouds or rain your photos will be exceptional in any season when you incorporate the natural light and beauty of the garden. There are such a variety of textures and colours from the earthy tones of the pine grove and driveway to the intense green of the backdrop of mature trees and tropical palms. Our rose garden has its own special magic surrounded by a white picket fence that encloses an arbour and cottage garden with subtle shades of whites and pinks.
Our private gardens are yours for the day and there is no need for guests to leave between the ceremony and reception. While the bridal party are having their photos taken, guests will enjoy the music, canapes and drinks with the option of fun giant garden games to keep them entertained. And there’s no shortage of locations on the property for your photographer or videographer to create those amazing photos with memories that will last you for a lifetime.
With so much space (5 acres) and so many locations, the whole property can become your stage to reveal your ceremony and reception program. For example, guests could be met in the back garden where they relax and chat pre-ceremony. Then they are directed through to the rose garden or kissing tree for the ceremony and afterwards to the front garden for drinks and canapes prior to the reception.
The marquee can be customised with your choice of round or trestle tables, high-back or folding chairs and styled to suit your theme with the addition of silk linings, chandeliers and specialised furnishings and lighting. Add in a photobooth or an outside dance floor – there is nothing quite like dancing the night away under the stars. So, whether your theme be romantic, rustic, elegant, vintage, bo-ho, country or princess, and your florals be roses, woodland, Australian native or greenery – your options are endless.
