Canberra region has an abundance of extremely talented wedding businesses and vendors which I am proud to call my friends! Here are some of my top recommendations for amazing Canberra wedding locations:
CANBERRA WEDDING LOCATIONS
With its beautiful purpose built marquee, five star dining farmhouse restaurant and multiple areas on site to have beautiful wedding photography in, Pialligo Estate is by far my pick for Canberra wedding ceremonies and receptions. I particularly love that it is so close to Canberra but you feel a world away – maybe in Italy or France with its stone architecture, established olive groves and hospitality that rivals no other! Not to mention everyone there is just so lovely to work with!

With the most romantic ceremony location, under the old elm tree, the exquisite food on offer to guests and so many locations for beautiful post ceremony photographs – Poachers Pantry offers the perfect country wedding setting not that far from Canberra! I particularly love to photograph brides and grooms in the paddocks, vineyard and between the giant poplars in Autumn!

Ginninderry Homestead is a bit of Canberra’s wedding best kept secret with manicured gardens, a beautiful homestead perfect to get ready in (no travel to your own wedding!) and a lovely event building to hold your reception. The owners are just gorgeous to deal with and will do anything to make your day perfect! I love shooting on the hills just outside the property overlooking the Brindabella ranges to get those beautiful landscape wedding shots.

The National Aboretum Canberra is a beautiful place to have your ceremony and wedding reception overlooking the sights and lights of Canberra and Lake Burley Griffin. The arboretum has some of Canberra’s best photo locations including the Cork Oak Forest, Cyprus Pines and the sunsets are always spectacular! The view from the Margaret Whitlam Pavillion for wedding ceremonies always wow guests and provide an intimate setting for a ceremony.

Parlour Wine Room
A special mention goes to Parlour Wine Room, a fantastic funky little joint to have an intimate wedding reception with awesome cocktail food and drinks, or sit down dining! I love how Parlour is so close to the city and Hotel Hotel providing guests with perfect accommodation choices around, plus urban opportunities for wedding photography in Canberra! And boy they can make a good Margarita!
