Garden Weddings

Spectacular Ceremony Locations

A picture-perfect Botanic Garden wedding awaits you – which of the nine breathtaking wedding locations will you choose within our magnificent gardens? Will you marry by the gorgeous lakeside gazebo or with the superb views at Serenity Point, over sweeping lawns or with the mountains in the distance? Imagine having your photos taken against a backdrop of 15,000 rhododendrons, 12,000 azaleas, 3,000 camellias and 250,000 daffodils! And your guests will love the opportunity to stroll through these world-renowned gardens before heading up to Mist, for a stylish wedding reception.

Throughout the year the gardens are ablaze with colour, in spring the magnificent flowering rhododendrons and azaleas are at their height, in summer when the hydrangeas are in full bloom, the riot of colour from the maples and cherry tree blossom in autumn, and the stunning delicate hues of the hellebores and leucadendrons in winter.

During the day, the Botanic Garden is open to the public and becomes yours exclusively for your event from 5.00pm onwards. Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden Management manage the booking of garden wedding ceremonies and our professional and friendly function coordinators are here to assist you with all your planning needs.

The Outdoor Deck

Wedding Receptions with a View

On beautiful summer evenings, we open up the bi-fold doors from the reception venue onto this wonderful outdoor deck, allowing the magnificent backdrop of the Dandenong Ranges to seamlessly integrate with the indoor dining area, dance floor and bar. In the cooler months, the views through the wall of glass allows the extraordinary outdoor gardens to be part of your indoor wedding reception.

A popular place to take your wedding vows, the outdoor deck also offers a relaxed atmosphere where your guests can mingle over pre-dinner drinks and canapes, after your wedding ceremony.

It’s yet another perfect setting for your wedding photographs with the magnificent vistas of the gorgeous landscaped gardens as your backdrop.

Your Bridal Retreat

Luxury Seclusion

The bridal room is your private retreat available to you throughout your wedding – in the midst of such a busy day, knowing you have a place where you can enjoy a private moment, some final pampering, a glass of bubbles – it will be an oasis of calm where you can take a little time out, your sanctuary on your special day.
