Traditionalists, there’s also a charming chapel on site with a dazzling crystal chandelier, a raised alter and bell tower, handcrafted seating, a Tasmanian Oak ceiling and incredible stained-glass windows.
Whichever you choose for your ceremony, you’ll also be spoiled for choice when it comes to your reception. With a cosy wood-fire fireplace and a glittering fibre optic starlight ceiling, the aptly named Starlight Room (below) makes for magical celebrations, while the airy Waterfall Pavilion opens out to breathtaking views of the venue’s waterfall, water fountains and tropical gardens – gorgeous!
Exclusivity and flexibility
Ever been a guest at a wedding where the general public was free to wander around in the background? When you celebrate saying “I do” at Tamborine Gardens you’ll be treated to true exclusivity – no curious randoms popping their heads into your reception, mid-toast!
A private venue dedicated to weddings only, Tamborine Gardens promises your special day will be all about you and your friends and family. Expect privacy, attention-to-detail and plenty of on-site parking (sure to help guests avoid rocking up to your ceremony frustrated). The venue is also able to host both grand and intimate celebrations, making putting together a guest-list simple.
