April 2023

We booked our ceremony with Doma Group, and had it at the Brassey Hotel Gardens! We had a perfect ceremony in a beautiful garden backdrop. They were very easy to work with and answered all my questions quickly. I would recommend Brassey Gardens as a ceremony venue to anyone who is considering this.

We are so happy with how everything turned out and are so glad we chose Hotel Realm. We had our reception in the North Hugh Courtyard and it looked absolutely stunning. The service was first class, the food was delicious, the staff were professional and attentive and Nicole and Michelle were extremely helpful and accommodating! We also had pre reception drinks at Ostani and stayed in the penthouse. All amazing! Our afternoon/night was pure joy and we have amazing memories.

Do we seat couples opposite or next to each other on a long table?

It's a garden setting. We want to allow better mingling

Hotel Realm

Gerenally speaking, on long tables you would seat couples next to each other, giving them the opptiortunity to chat to friends or other couples on the other side of the table, howevber this is personal preference.  When booking with Hotel Realm, your experienced wedding executive will be able to assist you in developing the best floorplan for your day! 

Are wedding venues only 18+ or can minors attend the reception where alcohol is being served?

Hotel Realm

Each venue has a different policy however in most venues, it works the same as any licenced venue, under 18's are more than welcome to attend, however there will be a restrivted area for the bar and they wont be allowed to consume alcohol in line with the Australian laws and RSA regualtions. 

Here at Hotel Realm we are more than happy to have your young special people as part of your day!

Wet weather plans

What are all possible wet weather plans/ideas we should consider for a spring wedding? I feel it rains a lot in spring, but we really want to have a spring wedding.

Hotel Realm

Here at Hotel Realm, a wet weatehr back up is always included in any outdoor ceremony package, we work with you to make the call the night before and contact any neccesary suppliers for you! We find this makes it a stress free transistion on our wedding couples should the weather be less than ideal on your special day!
