We had our wedding on the Tarpeian lawn at the royal botanic gardens Sydney. Stunning venue and backdrop! Sharna Southwell was our event coordinator and we could not fault her! She was extremely helpful, very professional and she went above and beyond what we expected! Hats off to Sharna!

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 space itself is lovely, we booked the Tarpeian Lawn with a view of the bridge and opera house. But there was a lot of paperwork and extra charges that really shouldn’t be necessary, such as booking ranger escorts for each of your suppliers even though the driveway was open and only a short distance. It created a lot of extra stress and seemed like they were just trying to get more money from you.

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 had a lot of questions and changing plans with arranging our wedding during covid, however dealing with the RBG events team was soo easy! Highly recommend RBG not just for the beautiful event spaces but also our positive experience with the events team.

There was a lot of paperwork involved in booking the place. We had the place hired until 8PM, but most of the guests left at 5PM because of the wind. It would have been good for them to know their areas and be able to change the location based on the weather.

We wanted an outdoor wedding and had the ceremony here which was absolutely beautiful in such an iconic place.

The Gardens themselves are of course beautiful, Blakes Feast, being the only supplier to the gardens, were also excellent. Easy to deal with and professional. We didn't do a lot with them though, just a basic tables and chair set.

Palm House & lawn is truly a stunning wedding venue - great location for an intimate wedding. Venue itself is under a closed roof, so need to worry about the weather on the day. Once the ceremony is over, the fee includes access around the park for great photo opportunities!

Our wedding venue The Rose Garden & Pavilion @ Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney was memorable. Besides the Australia Day road closures and scorching heat, the venue organisers were fantastic with helping us prepare for our special day.

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.

We had a heritage building and it was beautiful. It was nice and easy for drop and delivery. We wanted to do everything ourselves and it was what we wanted. They also had security and one day and half hire of the venue.

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.

We got married in lions gate lodge. the venue was beautiful and well presented and cleaned prior to the wedding. Most of the function organisers were really prompt and efficient. The only down side is that you have to bump in/out between 8am-12am otherwise you have to pay extra.

It was really lovely apart from the rain. The only downfall was we couldn't erect a marquee.

The process in reserving our preferred area of the gardens was very easy & smooth. The pavilion was signed reserved as promised & we had a fantastic day. Additionally, the weather they put on for us was perfect! Lol.

Our ceremony was in The Rose Garden and Pavilion. This is such a perfect location. You have the choice of in between the roses or under the gorgeous tree. The pavilion is perfect for wet weather alternative. Glimpses of the opera house are stunning in photos!

I love this venue and so did my guests - so much, in fact, that my bridesmaid got married in the same place exactly a year later! There are some logistics to get your head around, but it is totally worth it.

Thanks to our celebrant - she chose the perfect location in the botancical gardens with the back drop showing the two icons of sydney being the harbour bridge and opera house. We therefore had the most stunning scenery displayed on our photos.
