We got married in the Pine Grove Forest at Centennial Park and it was absolutely magical. The trees provided and fairy tale like setting in the heart of nature. The event organisers were friendly, accomodating and helpful. They provided information about surrounding events that day in the park, reserved parking for bridal party and were hassle free. We were fortunate to have good weather but it was touch and go, so I would recommend umbrellas as the park does not allow for marquees to be put up.

Really easy! I made an enquiry online and everything was done.

Centennial Parklands were easy to deal with. Couple things in the lead up they dealt with very quickly for us. They were fantastic

They were brilliant! The people were lovely regardless of whether it was on the lead up or on the day. The girl who looked after us on the night she was just phenomenal!! Food was fantastic and there were no complains from anyone. All the vegetarians and the vegans even said their meals were really really good!

I looked everywhere for this place and was so glad I found it. The trees and cool breeze was everything I could have wanted for our ceremony! Customer service was flawless! Always quick responses and never once did I feel like I was annoying (even though I knew I was haha)! Absolutely loved it!!!!!

Love the park environment and beautiful surrounding. Was able to made a last minute change on the attendance number. However, it was hard to get on hold to the booking staff. I was require to contact several time before I can reach the booking officer. Otherwise the booking process was simple and the surrounding was beautiful

Seamless experience, one of the few beautiful locations that allow pets so our furbaby could be a part of the special day.

Centennial Parklands were super easy to deal with and gave a fast reply. We were married between Willow Pond and Duck Pond. It's a little out of the way, but check it out! Our photos are a dream! The scenery was perfect and our photographer found such amazing places to take pictures. If you're thinking about getting married here, do it! But provide guests with a map and tell them which street to enter from because the road is one way.

They were awesome! They were easy to book, and each time I had questions those responses came back really quickly. The events people we got involved just had no issues, it was just super easy with them! We just hired the event space, and had some other suppliers to come in for the furniture and decorations.

They were really great, very easy to work with and really made it easy for us on the day and leading up to it. The coordinator there was really helpful, when we needed to meet up with them for a quick chat it was really easy to organise and they were up for anything that we needed done. It was a really good day.

23 Aug 2019

It was great, there were no issues at all and everything went to plan. It was all very straightforward and the whole process was very seamless. We didn't actually have to deal with anyone or anything! We had our coordinator come in and set up everything for us too.

Alisha was very helpful at the start as well as on the wedding. The food was excellent and all the staff of the night were very helpful with the running of the event.
