October 2017

Exceptional and unusual venue, very architectural modern building in beautiful native gardens. Although we had to be very organised and bring absolutely everything it was a special and unorthodox setting that worked perfectly. We had full creative licence to do whatever we wanted and it worked perfectly. I absolutely love our photos in this setting.

December 2015

We wanted an authentic, natural Australian backdrop for our wedding and the Mount Annan Gardens delivered. Bianca was very friendly and easy to work with. The connections garden was the perfect setting for our small family wedding. Highly recommended.

Isobel was so excellent to work with, receptive to all our questions and went out of her way to ensure our requests were met. The Connections Garden is a beautiful, magical space and we did not have any public members interrupting.
