What an amazing venue! It was such a unique experience - our guests really appreciated to wander around, particularly for our friends with kids. Taking photos with the animals was a great experience. Exhibit next to our room was a show-stealer! Food was great. The day ran smoothly.

Melbourne Zoo provide a beautiful backdrop to any wedding and we loved that our guests could explore the Zoo while we were doing photos, as well as the opportunity to feed a giraffe as part of our photo tour. The food was great even though we couldn't pronounce half of it, and the service we had was wonderful, in particular, Jade who was our guide for our photo tour. The hickups we had across the day were minor and remedied quickly. We planned mostly via email which provided some obstacles and our coordinator put everything together for us.

The Zoo was the perfect location for our wedding. The grounds are beautiful, the food is delicious and the staff were exceptionally helpful. The Zoo provides a wedding planner to assist with all the details - which made planning super easy! We also got some great pictures with the animals!

LCC at the Melbourne Zoo prepared beautiful food for our wedding - we had plenty of comments about the quality and flavour, and their wedding coordinators went to great lengths to ensure the day went off without a hitch.
