Weddings and ceremonies

We provide beautifully maintained historic gardens and harbour foreshore parks that are ideal locations for your wedding ceremony or bridal photography. Scroll through our five most popular locations below.

So that you don't miss out, once you find a park that you are interested in, and you have a date (and time) in mind, please contact the Recreational Bookings Coordinator to make a tentative booking.

A minimum of two weeks' notice is required to process the application.

Your tentative booking will be held for two weeks, in which time, you will need to complete a weddings/ceremonies and bridal photography application form(PDF, 403KB) and provide an estimation of the wedding party size and full payment to confirm the booking.

Your booking does not grant exclusive use of the Park but we will endeavour to not take any other group bookings for the same time.

To maintain our wedding venues in a good condition for all to enjoy, it is necessary for us to restrict some types of activities undertaken in the park. This includes not permitting receptions and limits on accessories that can be brought into the park, e.g. we do not permit marquees or temporary structures including wedding arches, pergolas, canopies and arbours. Use of carpets or ground coverings, confetti, rice or rose petals/flowers is also not permitted.
