February 2019

We got married in the Pine Grove Forest at Centennial Park and it was absolutely magical. The trees provided and fairy tale like setting in the heart of nature. The event organisers were friendly, accomodating and helpful. They provided information about surrounding events that day in the park, reserved parking for bridal party and were hassle free. We were fortunate to have good weather but it was touch and go, so I would recommend umbrellas as the park does not allow for marquees to be put up.

Love the park environment and beautiful surrounding. Was able to made a last minute change on the attendance number. However, it was hard to get on hold to the booking staff. I was require to contact several time before I can reach the booking officer. Otherwise the booking process was simple and the surrounding was beautiful
