Weddings at the Royal Botanic Gardens

One frequently asked question is this: ‘I would like to have my wedding at the Royal Botanic Gardens. Is this allowed?’

Answer: It is against the law to hold religious ceremonies at the Royal Botanic Gardens. You are however, free to use the Hollows area of the Queens Park Savannah instead. The Hollows has a similar feel to the Botanic Gardens and is usually used for wedding ceremonies.
You are allowed to take wedding photos in the Royal Botanic Gardens.
