The Royal Botanic Garden has many beautiful areas available for hire for Wedding Ceremonies and Photography. Choose between lawns with spectacular harbour views, specialty gardens, or one of our historic lodges and pavilions. Your wedding ceremony permit allows two hours lawn hire and also gives you permission to carry out professional wedding photography throughout the Garden and Domain. Wedding Photography permits are also available separately if you are holding your ceremony elsewhere.

Listed below are various locations most commonly used for wedding ceremonies and photography. We welcome bookings for most areas so please let us know if you have a special attachment to, or preference for another area of the Garden not listed below.
