We had our wedding at the Lion Gate Lodge inside the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney, and had Hatrick Catering to cater for our wedding, could not have asked for a better setting! It's beautiful, well equipped for outside catering, the garden is private and easily accessible for guests from Mrs Macquarie Road, and have outdoor and indoor options for bad weather. It was a perfect day.

Harbour view lawn. Great venue to take advantage of the beautiful harbour, opera house and harbour bridge as background.

Royal Botanic Garden was such a beautiful place, we hold our ceremony by the river, very simple but all the plants and flowers already became the nature decorate for our big day.
