Perth Zoo is a unique, memorable wedding venue with stunning garden ceremony sites and world-class fare. Perfect for animal lovers, Perth Zoo offers stunning, manicured gardens, elegant outdoor reception spaces, photo opportunities aplenty, and delectable wedding menus. With a ceremony package and dedicated coordinators, Perth Zoo is an ideal place for your magical wedding.

Suppose you're on the lookout for an original, memorable ceremony and reception venue, complete with manicured gardens, a playful atmosphere, and idyllic photo locations. In that case, you may want to consider a Perth Zoo wedding.

This beautiful wedding venue celebrates nature, and is a perfect place to say 'I do' if you love spending time with magnificent animals — and if you don't. Indeed, while a big draw for many couples is the fantastic photo opportunities with exotic wildlife, Perth Zoo has much more to offer than that (although a wedding photo with a giraffe cannot be overlooked).

Indeed, Perth Zoo is also a favourite among couples who fancy themselves foodies, with this leading Perth venue partnered with Fresh Events, an award-winning Perth catering company that's just been crowned 2021 Caterer of the Year. Their meals are positively exquisite, with presentation and flavour at the heart of everything they do.

In addition to sublime meals, Perth Zoo prides itself on its breathtaking gardens, beautiful outdoor ceremony sites, and elegant reception space, offering couples an adventurous ceremony and traditional seated dinner.

“We had our ceremony and photoshoot in the Japanese Gardens at Perth Zoo. It is a beautiful setting and gave our ceremony the relaxed feel we wanted. The staff were all very friendly and helpful both on the day and in the planning stages.”


What you'll love about working with Perth Zoo for your Perth wedding:

  • Picturesque locations for photos. Of course, this also means you can walk the grounds with your wedding photographer, scouring for animals to take pictures with. However, Perth Zoo also has exquisitely manicured gardens (including the oak lawn and the Japanese gardens) that are perfect for wedding photos.

  • Multiple breathtaking ceremony sites
  • Guests can wander the zoo before the reception

Everything was awesome. Having our wedding on front of the elephants was an awesome backdrop.

OMG!!!!! The perfect venue. We had the garden marquee. Able to take 180 guests very comfortably with plenty of room for dancing. Plus plenty of opportunties for some great photos within the zoo.

They are very organised and give you a dedicated wedding planner to help organise the day. They only do one wedding at a time so you know you don't have to worry about the venue being taken over by another party.

We had our ceremony in the Elephant Amphitheatre and it was incredible! The ladies in the zoo made organizing the ceremony really easy and stress-free, and were really happy to accommodate our needs. On the day we couldn't have asked for a better team who looked after us so well.

Incredible venue for a wedding! Our ceremony was held at the Elephant Amphitheater which was perfect. Danielle was a great help through the planning process & the docents on the day were so lovely and saw to our every need. If you're looking for something different, this is it!

Amazing...Janet, Jason, Katrina and team looked after my husband and I and our guests fantastically well, even managing a mini-crisis or two seamlessly. It was so much fun and I recommend Perth Zoo as a wedding and reception venue wholeheartedly.
