Planning or re-planning your big day? Wed your beloved in tropical bliss at Roma Street Parkland
Not to state the obvious, but planning a wedding is stressful. Throw a pandemic into the mix and you’ve got a recipe for, well, more stress. However, it looks like the storm is clearing (did someone say hallelujah?) and brides and grooms to-be can start sending out invites again. If you’ve bookmarked your nuptials for 2021 and you’re currently on the search for the perfect location, we know one inner-city destination where you can walk down the aisle in style – Roma Street Parkland.
You’ve got the ring, you may have said yes to the dress and maybe you’ve even scouted where to spend your honeymoon. Now, all you need is the dream wedding destination! If you’re keeping your eyes peeled for a venue where you can celebrate love, then look no further than Roma Street Parkland. Conveniently located in the heart of the city, this sub-tropical oasis offers metropolitan views, scenic waterfalls and greenery galore – the perfect setting for a memorable wedding. If you’ve finally locked down (or for those who had a ceremony planned last year, rescheduled) a date for your wedding, this idyllic inner-city spot boasts plenty of spectacular places to gather with your nearest and dearest. From intimate private pockets with picture-perfect backdrops to larger lush spaces with city skyline outlooks, you’re spoilt for choice at Roma Street Parkland, with a treasure chest of intimate areas for you to say “I do”.
Planning a small ceremony? Make your way through the rainforest to the park’s charming venue The Flying Duck, which can host 20 seated guests or up to 40 standing. Smaller receptions of up to 150 standing guests can also sprawl out to the lawn at Sunset Glade, a serene locale positioned in the heart of the parkland, or for stellar views of Brisbane’s city skyline, City View Saddle is the primo pick for marquee set ups that host up to 120 standing guests. Those looking for a shady spot can say their vows underneath the breathtaking fig tree at Palm Tree Court, which can accomodate 40 seated guests or up to 140 standing. If you’re going all out, the Harry Oakman Pavilion is the destination to kick off your wedded bliss. This purpose-built space boasts sweeping views of the parkland and The City and is perfect for a picnic-style reception after the main event.
Of course, the cherry on top of the cake is the reception. You can party with your parents, pals and new in-laws at The Garden Room, an elegant urban space that’s just waiting for you to create your magical wedding reception within (daggy dancing and all!). With mouth-watering catering, top-tier service and no-fuss event planning, The Garden Room team will curate a tailored food and drinks package that will make your day extra special. As they say, let them eat cake!
