Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Taronga Zoo Weddings offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

Do you have any advice on what to look for in a wedding venue?

there are so many options, I was wondering what I should keep in mind

Taronga Zoo Weddings

This is a good question, but one that is also incredibly personal! Your venue is probably the most important piece to setting the scene for your wedding. You should always be prepared with your dreams and ideas before starting the venue search so that you know what questions to ask. Maybe you want a ceiling installation, but not all venues can accomodate this so it is good to get these questions answered up front.
What you really want to look out for, is a venue that can make all or most of your ideas come to life, from the obvious number of guests, down to having a special custom wedding cocktail.

How many guests qualify as a small wedding?

Do venues usually have a minimum?

Taronga Zoo Weddings

There is no definite number that determines a small wedding and it can really depend on the venue space.

We prefer to call them 'intimate' because all the important close family and friends are always there!

Our smallest space can hold up to 60 guests for a seated menu so we often refer to events using this space as a more intimate wedding.

Should I be asking every vendor I inquire with if they are same-sex friendly?

I saw a horror story on reddit about a venue.. so I am now worried.

Taronga Zoo Weddings

If you have any concerns, most definitely ask the venue. But in this day and age most venues will be accepting of couples of all walks of life, regardless of their race, religion, age or sexual orientation.

At Taronga Centre, we celebrate love and that comes in any shape or form.

Is an on-site venue coordinator usually included in venue packages?

Taronga Zoo Weddings

An onsite venue coordinator is an extremely valuable when it comes to ensuring the smooth running of your event. At Taronga Centre, a venue coordinator is included in every wedding package and will assist in the organisation of your suppliers as well as the set up and execution of your event.

How soon before the wedding are you usually able to go in and check the decor is up to scratch?

I may come across as a bridezilla but I want to check that the venue is perfect before the wedding! Are you usually allowed in prior? I havent booked my venue yet but I'm looking and this is really important to me

Taronga Zoo Weddings

Access to rooms can vary depending on the bookings surrounding your event. The majority of your suppliers will prefer access to your room on the day of your event and, while you will be able to go in during this time, the set up will most likely still be underway. At Taronga Centre, we recommend providing as much information as possible to your onsite coordinator who will oversee your decor and supplier schedule.

How do venues cater to children and teens?

I have some kids (under 10) and then 8 cousins in their teens. I'm not sure where the wedding is yet (open to anywhere in Aus), but they make up a large portion of my guests so I don't want them to feel bored! Can venues supply mocktails for them so they can feel part of it and party with us? Should I be asking about kids rooms or somewhere where I can set up an xbox or netflix or something for them to do? Should I hire some games?

Taronga Zoo Weddings

At Taronga Centre, we understand the importance of having all your family attend your special day. To ensure that children can enjoy each moment, we offer specialised and discounted packages based on age and dietary requirements. Our tables are set allowing space for high chairs or prams, and younger guests are among the first to be served from a menu catering to children's particular tastes. Children between the ages of 0 and 4, who don't require a meal, can attend free of charge.
