The Terrace Royal Botanic Gardens is the perfect setting for an elegant garden wedding. Surrounded by lush lawns and tropical plants, the floor-to-ceiling windows are a source of fresh air and natural light for flawless wedding photography. Minutes from Melbourne’s CBD, The Terrace enjoys city views from a relaxed garden setting.

The Terrace combines elegance, tradition, and contemporary style in a flexible “blank canvas” that is perfect for couples who have a specific theme and decor in mind. Set in the heart of Melbourne's iconic Royal Botanic Garden, The Terrace offers a seamless combination of city venue for your wedding day.

 

“Excellent! I was pregnant at the time and they revised the menu for me. Great pricing and they were able to assist us and work with our budget. They also organised a gondola entrance for us and the photos were incredible. Our guests loved the food and each table had their own waiter.” Donna R

 

The Terrace can comfortably accommodate up to 180 guests with a bridal table for a seated lunch or dinner, or up to 300 guests for a cocktail-style event. A flexible dancefloor will get the party started, and to cool down the floor-to-ceiling glass windows open onto the adjoining terrace. Overlooking Ornamental Lake, your guests can enjoy the gentle evening breeze as they gaze out at the peaceful gardens.

 

For catering, the inhouse Executive Chef is constantly evolving menus that feature modern cuisine and premium ingredients.

I loved The Terrace. The venue looks beautiful and different both day and night, the setting is magical. The staff were fantastic, particularly Emily Major who was helpful in every stage of the planning.
