The gazebo offers a more traditional garden wedding setting surrounded by established shrubs, tall trees and colourful ground level foliage. Follow the pathway behind the gazebo and you will find an equally lovely spot, more secluded with a slightly more tropical look, ideal for elopements and a great spot for couples portrait shots.
Our timber boardwalk leads you onto a raised deck surrounded by ferns, shrubs and mature trees, giving it a tranquil and tropical ambience and a cool spot in the summer months thanks to the tree canopy overhead. The deck size is best suited for elopements and portrait shots.
The hut provides an undercover option which is great in case the rain decides to dampen your elopement, as well as a shady spot from the sun. As the sunlight fades the fairy lights and chandelier come on to give the hut a golden glow. The sides of the hut are not enclosed and are surrounded by greenery, so while there is a roof overhead you still feel very much like you're in a garden. Beautiful spot for a twilight elopement.
If it's a little bit of country charm you're after then our barn made from reclaimed/recycled materials and fronted with a frame of wisteria may be just right. The wisteria flowers in lovely lavender coloured tendrils during Spring but even in Winter the twisted trunk and bare vine, covered in fairy lights looks really romantic in the twilight hours. The green leaves in Summer offer a slight reprieve from the heat, you notice the temp drop by a few degrees as soon as you stand beneath it's canopy.
Sometimes the perfect elopement spot is just nature in all it's glory and we have a few beautiful trees that make for an ideal garden wedding location. They can be left just as they are, or dressed up with drapes of fabric, paper lanterns, florals or one of the arbours from our small collection. Shown above is the 'Portal' arbour in the lower stone garden.
If you are looking for an intimate, elopement or small wedding in a beautiful garden, you are in the perfect spot!
Beneath The Tree Ceremony
by Zena Attasingh
is not your ordinary celebrant but also accommodates you with her beautiful sanctuary in the heart of Greenbank, Queensland. Not just that, working as a photographer and visiting her site a few times makes her stand out among other celebrants with her hospitality and professionalism. I highly recommend her to all brides and grooms considering searching for their celebrant and venue for their wedding.

The hut has ample room to seat up to 10 guests on the grass area below and with the couple elevated on the raised deck for the ceremony. The hut looks particularly nice late in the afternoon with the glow of the chandelier and fairy lights.

Our elopement & micro wedding garden constantly changes with the seasons & as we add new features, but no matter the time of year they do make the ideal location for an intimate garden ceremony. The garden is only available for couples who have booked me as their celebrant and there is an additional charge to use the garden, with guest numbers limited to a maximum of 10. Garden viewings are available by appointment.
