We had our wedding on the lawn of the Palm House at the Royal Botanic Gardens. It was a beautiful location and had provisions for wet weather also. The ranger escorts were very useful for our vendors to delivery their items.

We absolutely loved the location we chose, we had all the the beauty and natural light of the botanical gardens for the nice pictures but still got covered from the rain in the Herb garden pavilion. It was easy to make booking and venue administration was helpful and quick with getting back to us. We had a great day

We booked the Lion Gate Lodge as a function so we could have it for the whole day which made setup extremely easy for the stylists. Lion Gate Lodge also had an awning for Plan B which we thankfully didn't need.

The Royal Botanic Garden were wonderful to work with for our wedding. We booked the Rose Garden & Pavilion area and loved the beautiful space to hold our ceremony. Iconic Sydney spring vibes (November was a winner, with all of the gorgeous roses and other flowers out!). We were delighted with how easy the booking process was and the excellent communication with Jess, the coordinator. There are some particularities with rules when booking the area, but these were of no worry to us, just something to read carefully if you are booking to make sure it is right for you! Of course you have to be mindful that other events may be happening in the Garden - there was a concert happening at the Calyx nearby and that certainly provided some dancy background tunes! But a beautiful location for a beautiful day.
