We held our daughters wedding ceremony and reception at the Mercure Canberra. The staff were amazing! The accommodation was very good. The ceremony was held in the courtyard under a deciduous tree in Autumn and was just beautiful! We decorated the Reception room and it was lovely! Highly recommended.

We had our wedding reception at the Mercure in December and it was fantastic. The room looked amazing, the food was delicious and the staff were so friendly. They have really great value for money wedding packages including alternate drop and buffet. Emily and Caitlin made the process so easy for us right from the beginning. On the day Caitlin was so friendly and accomodating and we didn’t have any concerns as Caitlin was amazing. We had a buffet and the food was so delicious with many options for us to choose from. We had a beautiful suite we could get ready in as well as use of the Ainslie room. The majority of our guests were from interstate so were able to stay at the Mercure as well and they enjoyed their stay. All the staff were incredible and I would highly recommend the Mercure as a wedding

Will wedding venues negotiate price?

Mercure Canberra

At Mercure Canberra, we will happily tailor a package to suit the couples' needs & budget.

Do all outdoor wedding venues have a bad-weather contingency plan?

Will, it cost extra to have a bad-weather contingency plan? Or is it included in the overall booking price?

Mercure Canberra

Yes, we have a wet weather back up plan inlcuded in all of our outdoor wedding packages so you can still have the perfect day whatever the weather!

do I need wedding venue insurance?

Mercure Canberra

It's not something we've encountered before, but it would totally be up to the bride & groom and what they feel comfortable with. Most venues would already have their own insurance so it would be thier personal choice whether to purchase additional cover.
