Meanwhile you and your bridal party may enjoy having photographs taken in the magnificent gardens of the parliamentary triangle.Your cocktail reception may begin in the stunning Gordon Darling Hall, featuring timbers from every state in Australia and westerly views into Reconciliation Place.
Or it could be in the external Forecourt, an all-weather venue ideal for cocktails.The Gallery team will then invite your guests into the Gordon Darling Hall or the Terrace Room overlooking Lake Burley Griffin. Guests will enjoy entree, main course and dessert followed by speeches, cake cutting, bridal dance and dancing.
