the nature of romance

If it’s a garden wedding you are looking for, then look no further

You can almost feel the history of our venue as you walk through spectacular columns of 100-year-old Norfolk Pines. By day these proud, old trees tower 100 feet above an enchanted garden, ringing with bird life! By night these trees form a dramatic backdrop to an arena filled with strategically placed garden lights…a true fairy garden!

Right here we have established a classic garden gazebo, exclusively for wedding services. From the gazebo, a paved path carves its way through the garden leading you into our professionally draped reception hall capable of seating up to 300 people, and a stunning sculpted Koi pond, complete with waterfall and bridge! Our clever architecture and innovative draping allow us the advantage of catering for both large and small weddings alike.

Our guests are captivated by their closeness to nature! When the halls blinds are raised, they are totally encapsulated by a garden, which is not only rich and colourful by day, but also even more spectacular at night!
