Cairns Secret Garden Weddings is a romantic, enchanting wedding venue nestled in amongst a magical and expansive garden. Available for ceremonies and intimate cocktail receptions, this garden wedding venue is as dreamy as they come: it's secluded, beautiful, and ideal for wedding photos. This friendly team promises a lovely experience, and would be thrilled to host the happiest day of your life.

Situated just 10 minutes from Cairns CBD is a gorgeous, intimate wedding ceremony venue with a bountiful garden. Affectionately named Cairns Secret Garden Weddings, this venue offers a stunning backdrop for your nuptials. Wild foliage climbs the walls, creating a rainforest wall which will look lovely behind your arbour - just imagine the dreamy wedding photos

The warm, personable owners at this mesmerising venue can lend you a range of stylish extras to embellish the space - including a champagne welcome mirror and an arbour which, along with the rest of the venue, can be styled by you. So whether your theme is romantic, boho, vintage, formal, or otherwise, you’ll be able to put your own personal touches on your ceremony site. You might like to include lanterns, red rose petals, and a white carpet to lean into the venue’s romantic, garden vibe.

While mainly a ceremony-only establishment, Cairns Secret Garden Weddings can host intimate, DIY cocktail-style receptions at their magical venue. This enchanting venue is set on an acreage, so there’s plenty of room for up to 100 guests to enjoy the festivities. And if you’re looking to marry without the fuss of a large, traditional wedding? You’ll be pleased to know this magical wedding venue also accommodates elopements.

Julie-Ann and Mike were beyond incredible! Being from Adelaide we didn't have a chance to view the Garden, however we knew immediately from the stunning photos that this was the ceremony location for us. On the day they were both amazing, making sure everything went smoothly and ensuring that we had the most perfect day. Thanks again guys 💕💕💕💕

Julie-Ann and her husband Mike are a great team. The love and care they put into making their venue look great is just amazing! They made sure all our guests were taken care of, and us as the bride & groom had the most stress free experience throughout our wedding ceremony. This private tropical garden is just beautiful, and everything we could have hoped for. For all the little things you may not think of, they have! From the cold bottles of water on arrival, the cutely packaged tissues to wipe those happy tears away, umbrella’s for those who are lucky enough to have rain on their wedding day, and because it’s the tropics, they even have citronella burning out of sight to make sure no mosquitos are buzzing around. We highly recommend The Cairns Secret Garden. Xx

I am so thankful we found the Secret Garden and we’re able to have our ceremony in such a beautiful location. Julie-Ann and Michael were so amazing during our entire planning process with no question too big or too small, they were even there on the day to ensure everything ran as smoothly as possible. The location was STUNNING and value was AMAZING. If I could do the day over again I would not change a single thing and would absolutely recommend the Secret Garden to anyone looking for a beautiful rainforest backdrop for their wedding. Thank you so so much!!!

Julie-Ann was very easy and lovely to deal with. Everything was wonderful from start to finish. They have 3 packages to choose from so all budgets are catered for. The garden itself was beautiful and private, you felt that you were in a world of your own. Our wedding was small and private, total of around 45 including us, although there is enough room enough for up to 120 guests. If you are looking for somewhere private, beautiful and romantic then look no further than The Secret Garden. Highly recommend!

Due to the unfortunate change in weather, rain was forecast over the entire weekend of our Wedding. The alternative venue option to the garden was a large veranda setup on the owners property. It was beautifully organised more than i could imagine. Owners and staff on the day were on point, professional, warm and friendly. Extra care was given to ensure all the guests had an umbrella. It really made the day feel so magical.
