Whether your ceremony is on a raised pavilion over cascades, or on the rolling lawns below the tall trees of their Forest Chapel; Whether your banquet is a luncheon in their Elephant Hall or a grand dinner in their Arena, The Garden Venue is certainly the perfect backdrop to host your wedding.

Wedding, Receptions and Ceremonies Spaces:

The Garden Arena - Capacity: 150 – 450 guests, in either a marquee or a Bedouin tent. The Garden Arena is a fabulous garden space, ideal for those who have dreamt of a garden wedding. The garden arena is uniquely private, with an outdoor stage for your wedding ceremony and is framed on all sides by landscaped gardens on raised berms.

The Forest Hall – Capacity: 150 – 350 guests. Their Forest Hall tells a 3-part wedding day storyline, where 3 unique spaces come together for the ceremony, then the pre-ceremony drinks with canapes and finally followed by the grand reception banquet. This dramatic space nestled below towering trees, with expansive rolling lawns, lends itself perfectly to the chemistry required for your magical wedding day. Whilst ceremonies can be held amongst the tall trees of the Forest Chapel, pre-reception drinks and canapes can be enjoyed on the piazza and sumptuous wedding banquets can be hosted inside the Forest Banquet Pavilion with its dramatic high thatch roof.

The Elephant Hall – Capacity: 80 – 140 guests. The Elephant Hall, delighting in a neutral colour palette for any wedding style, is a thatched hall with expansive deck patios enjoying magnificent views for receptions. The Koi Pond Pavilion is adjacent to the Elephant Hall and is an exquisite outdoor space with decking pavilions cantilevering over Koi ponds and is ideal for wedding ceremonies. With a capacity of 140 guests, it is the ultimate space for a charismatic outdoor wedding ceremony, and many have hosted their receptions here too. Memorable sunsets offer the perfect opportunity for pre-drinks and canapes to be enjoyed.

The Olive Tree Hide – Capacity: 50 – 80 guests.  The Olive Tree Hide is an outdoor thatch venue in an enviable position nestled under a grand old indigenous Olive Tree.  This exceptional space, ideal for smaller weddings, also offers a circular patio with wrap around exterior seating on the patio. It’s an intimate area, which can expand its capacity to 100. The Lawn Terrace, which is adjacent to the Olive Tree Hide, with pristine rolling lawns, is an ideal garden location to hold your wedding ceremony, presenting a magical outdoor wedding ceremony and reception area.

The Peacock Room – Capacity: 30 – 60 guests, in banquet style.  The Peacock Room is The Garden Venue’s latest and smallest venue, accommodating more intimate weddings. This venue enjoys modern contemporary architecture, in distinct contrast to the dominant traditional thatch style of The Garden Venue.
