Having performed hundreds of weddings in and around Brisbane Jamie and Cara are spilling the beans and telling you why these are some of the best wedding locations in Brisbane.
BRISBANE PARK AND GARDEN WEDDING LOCATIONS
With the perfect climate for outdoor weddings year round, we really are spolit for choice in Brisbane with a fantastic choice of wedding ceremony locations.
We have put together this selection of some of our favourite Brisbane wedding ceremony sites to assist couples with finding the perfect place to say “I Do”.
The following Brisbane wedding ceremony locations feature wedding ceremony styling by With Love – Brisbane Wedding Decorators.
New Farm Park Rotunda
This highly sought after rotunda is a popular choice for weddings. Offering so many features and benefits, from the historical 100+ year old structure, to the central riverside location, not to mention it’s so spacious, providing shade on sunny days, and shelter on rainy days, so no alternative wet weather venue is required.
Other New Farm Park ceremony sites include ‘Powerhouse View‘ ‘River View‘ and ‘Ferry View‘. Your wedding photographer will be in photographic utopia with the rose gardens, jacarandas and Poinciana’s within New Farm Park, and the edgy urban backdrop of the Brisbane Powerhouse nearby.
You can book the rotunda through Brisbane City Council and you can even book access to power if needed.

Captain Burke Park
With the majestic Story Bridge giving a nod to Brisbane in the backdrop, with a large spacious grassed area, Captain Burke Park in Kangaroo Pt is a great location for a wedding ceremony.

Roma Street Parkland
With a variety of immaculately maintained lawns to choose from, Roma Street Parklands is an oasis in Brisbane City and even has wet weather options they can offer in the unlikely event the forecast doesn’t look favourable for your day (wet weather ceremony locations are subject to availability). Another unique feature of this park, is you can request permission for your wedding transport to drive you up to the entrance of your lawn.
It’s not surprising that so many couples choose Roma Street Parklands for their wedding ceremony. With a choice of six beautiful wedding sites, each surrounded by an abundance of greenery, Roma Street Parklands cater for the most small and intimate wedding to large groups of up to a thousand guests. With waterfalls, a lake, photogenic bridges and fine mist sprays, photo opportunities are abundant making this a favourite place for photographers to take their couples between their ceremony and reception.

Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens
The Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens have 3 wedding lawns to choose from, with Palm Tree Lawn being the most popular choice, perhaps for it’s privacy with surrounding greenery. A unique benefit of choosing to have your wedding ceremony here, is that (to the best of our knowledge) this is the only Brisbane wedding park that includes 20 x chairs as part of your booking!
Your wedding photographer will be in their element here with the abundance of beautiful landscapes and photo opportunities.

Having being a part of hundreds of weddings over the years, we have experienced many Brisbane’s wedding venues, and of the venues we’ve been fortunate enough to perform wedding ceremonies at, the following Brisbane wedding ceremony venues truly shine when it comes to being a unique venue with excellent service. So in no particular order, here goes:
WEDDING CEREMONIES AT BRISBANE GOLF CLUBS
This centrally located venue certainly has the wow factor, the garden marquee ceremony site has sweeping views of the city, which is equally as impressive when the sunset and the colourful city lights come to life. As a preferred Celebrant of the venue, Jamie + Cara of Brisbane City Celebrants have performed many weddings at Victoria Park and we love performing weddings here.
