OVERVIEW

Welcome to The Gardens Club: Where vintage vibes meet lush surroundings, and heritage history meets curator’s cottage charm. A wedding destination with the best of both worlds – city views and rainforest greenery located in the heart of Brisbane City Botanic Gardens.

Originally built circa 1909, the now-heritage-listed curator’s cottage and adjacent terrace and ceremony lawn provide the perfect, all-in-one wedding destination. Featuring all the classic Queenslander hallmarks – high ceilings, cornices, VJ walls, soft lighting, and the most expansive bay window view out into the gardens, The Gardens Club is an all-weather accessible and pet-friendly wedding venue with indoor and outdoor options.

Our specialised event coordinators will work with you to easily plan your wedding day.

The Gardens Club is part of The Wise Foundation. Within The Gardens Club, Wise Foundation operate a program designed to assist those in the community facing barriers to employment. 

The Wise Hospitality Program provides three months of employment and training to individuals from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds.

Working in partnership with Multicultural Australia, participants are inducted into the workplace and provided with extensive training by hospitality professionals. 

About

Hi! I'm Jess I love baking, my kids, my Westie Valentine and exploring with my fam. I have been in the marketing, public relations and events industry for over 15 years and have been in service and hospitality jobs since I could start work. After completing a double degree I worked at Events Queensland, moved to regional Queensland for 10 years (highlight was organising a huge farmers market there), got married in an old hall (12 years ago) and was the DIY master of my own wedding.

    On behalf of my wife and I, we really appreciate everything that you and the teams efforts in the lead up and during the day of our wedding. We would certainly recommend the Gardens Club as a venue to anyone for any occasion. The venue is a hidden gem in a wonderful location. We would be happy to give a 5 Star recommendation to you, Jerimah, the Chef and the team. The set up, the food and the service was truly tremendous, thanks for helping make our wedding day very memorable and special.

    'm not sure we know how to begin to say thank you to you for such a wonderful wedding reception. You really were amazing from start to finish. All of our guests were so impressed with the venue and they loved the food and your staff. The only common thread I heard was that the canapes were so big they almost weren't that hungry by the time they sat down for dinner. But it sounds like the canapes were so delicious they weren't complaining at all!! Too much food is never a problem in our book.. We think you guys are wonderful!

    A huge thank you again Jess for making our wedding so stress free and wonderful. We had a great time as did all of our guests. All communication leading up to our wedding was friendly, professional and clear and made us feel at ease, especially since we were organising the event from interstate. We were able to make amendments right up to the wedding without any issue. Jess went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed, and that flexibility was greatly appreciated . The venue was presented beautifully, both inside and outdoors and the food and service was fantastic. We could not fault the venue at all. We would absolutely recommend this venue for special events.

    We both are still glowing in the aftermath of our beautiful wedding, which was made possible by you and your wonderful team and the absolutely breathtaking venue. Everything was perfect Jess, I can’t thank you enough😘I loved every minute and can’t believe it was almost 2 weeks ago! Everybody who came loved the ceremony have told me it’s the best wedding they have ever been too, which to us it was❤️it was spectacular.

    Great food! Right in the heart of Brisbane City next to the rainforest and the river, making some incredible photos. The venue is owned by a charity too!
