Enjoy glistening water views across Sydney Harbour or choose one of our themed specialty gardens creating a unique setting for your ceremony.

You may also fall in love with our heritage pavilions, such as the Rose Garden pavilion, a romantic outdoor garden surrounded by roses, featuring a beautiful sandstone pavilion.

Beautiful venue - the team at Royal Botanic Gardens are very responsive and efficient, and are patient with questions! Highly recommend the Bennelong Lawn.

Beautiful surroundings, great atmosphere - lovely! Thanks for that - the Rose Pavilion was just perfect!

Palm House & lawn is truly a stunning wedding venue - great location for an intimate wedding. Venue itself is under a closed roof, so need to worry about the weather on the day. Once the ceremony is over, the fee includes access around the park for great photo opportunities!

We absolutely loved the location we chose, we had all the the beauty and natural light of the botanical gardens for the nice pictures but still got covered from the rain in the Herb garden pavilion. It was easy to make booking and venue administration was helpful and quick with getting back to us. We had a great day

We wanted an outdoor wedding and had the ceremony here which was absolutely beautiful in such an iconic place.

The Gardens themselves are of course beautiful, Blakes Feast, being the only supplier to the gardens, were also excellent. Easy to deal with and professional. We didn't do a lot with them though, just a basic tables and chair set.

We booked the Lion Gate Lodge as a function so we could have it for the whole day which made setup extremely easy for the stylists. Lion Gate Lodge also had an awning for Plan B which we thankfully didn't need.

The most beautiful location for our ceremony and awesome place to take photos.

Gorgeous ceremony location! We were so lucky the rain cleared on our wedding day to see how beautiful the gardens were :)

Fantastic venue hiring the Herb Garden and pavilion for the day. Shelter was great for the sun and setting turned out perfect for our day

Our wedding venue The Rose Garden & Pavilion @ Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney was memorable. Besides the Australia Day road closures and scorching heat, the venue organisers were fantastic with helping us prepare for our special day.

The Harbour View Lawn was amazing for our international guests! The fig tree was spectacular!
