Can anyone suggest any suitable locations/venues for a wedding ceremony and/or reception? We are not local, so we cannot physically check these places out, and we don't want to just pick something from a pretty picture only to find out it's not that nice.

It doesn't have to be *in* Hobart, it can be probably up to 40/60 minutes away - something reasonable for our (also) out of town guests to get to. The ceremony & reception do not have to be at the same place, although that would certainly be convenient!

There are so many beautiful places in Hobart to get married - good choice. So that I can narrow the field for you, I have a few questions...

What time of year are you looking at?
Do you like beach weddings or garden weddings or would you prefer inside?
Or would you prefer a winery or a hotel?

We got married in January 08 in a garden called Corinda. They are not doing ceremonies anymore. Our reception was here, which was beautiful. They do ceremonies as well.

There are also some churches and cathedrals in the city centre with hotels right nearby. This place is right over the road from a cathedral and they roll out red carpet and stop the traffic when you are leaving the church.

Hopefully this will give you a few starting points. I looked at lots of places and have also been to lots of weddings in Hobart so feel free to ask me any questions about venues.

We got married in the conservatory at the botanical gardens. It was beautiful! The flowers in there were stunning, and it is a great way to have a garden wedding without having to worry about the weather! The only issue for some might be the restrictions on the number of guests at the ceremony if you have it in there.

We then had photos around the rest of the gardens, then on the Lady Nelson (boat), and our reception was here.


Where you choose depends a lot on what type of wedding you are after, how many guests etc, so it is a bit hard to make suggestions without knowing more details. Also I was married 5 years ago, so no doubt a lot has changed since then!

Your reception venue was one of the places we looked at Jo! But they told us we couldn't have dancing there because the floor was pretty fragile blink.gif .

How many guests are you expecting?

We had our wedding ceremony in St David's Park, which is right in the city, and had our reception at one of the waterfront restaurants.

Peppermint Bay is a good spot for a ceremony and reception, as is D'Entrecasteaux. Peppermint Bay is easy too as all the guests can hop on the boat from the city if they are staying there.

We're planning to get married this time next year.. (12th April, which is a Tuesday, as it happens) so pretty much any venue that looks great right now wink.gif

We only anticipate that there will be about 30 guests, and definitely no more than 50.

We *were* thinking about Hatcher's Manor in Richmond, but when we looked up some reviews there were about 50/50 Awesome/Horrendous... so that kind of freaked me out.. although DF pointed out that we could just get married there and not stay there.. but it kind of thew me for a loop, because the pictures all looked so great, but I'm afraid that when I get there, if it's yucky and dirty it will "ruin my day".. *sigh*

We did think maybe something like the Botanic Gardens - can you have a reception there too, or just the ceremony?

I would be happy with a church wedding too, because Hobart seems to have so many beautiful old churches.. but DF whinges that the lighting inside isn't great for photos, so he'd prefer outside.. but I'm not ruling anything out atm!!

I think "style" wise, we're planning to go fairly traditional, even though it will be a small wedding.. I'm leaning towards the a-line style white dress, maybe with lace, maybe a small train. (still have to go try them on, but that's what I'm thinking!) And for flowers, I just want something sweet and cottage-y like lisianthus, peonies, hyacinth, sweet peas or roses in pinks, purples & creamy whites. (Does that give you an idea of the kind of person I am? *g*)

I think overall, one of the locations (ceremony or reception) needs to be "amazing" - it needs to be the reason *why* we got married in Tassie instead of Perth... ie, I don't want the ceremony & reception to be at a vineyard, because we have lots of those here, so why? BUT if the wedding is somewhere picturesque, then the reception could be at a vineyard, no problem.

DO NOT get married at Hatcher's Manor. Please don't even consider it. My sister got married there a few weeks ago and it was the most shoddily run place I have ever seen. They had their ceremony and reception there, the owners were hopeless, the food was.... bizarre, the garden was terrible and the whole thing was really poorly handled. There were DOGS in the reception room.

Avoid it at all costs!!!

Umm... hmm, somewhere amazing... I know you said you don't want a vineyard, but Moorilla is stunning, and their location isn't the usual vineyard scene as it has a new art gallery and is located on a cliff kind of thing above the river. click It is really beautiful (and their sav blanc is fantastic wink.gif )

Peppermint Bay could be a great location for you, it is really beautiful there. Here is link click You could get married down there or have your ceremony in one of the churches in town, then get on the boat with all of your guests and sail down to your reception. It is a beautiful ceremony location though.


Will keep thinking and return smile.gif

One more place I thought of which you can have your ceremony and reception at is Cascade Gardens. I haven't been to a wedding there but it is a very popular place, so it must be ok? It is backed by the mountain and the brewery so it could be great for photos.

Just thought of somewhere else!

I really wanted to have our reception at the Waterside Pavillion, which is an old building right on the docks, which has been renovated inside. It is run by the council and is fairly cheap to hire, you'd need to organise your own catering though. It is stunning at night too. Unfortunately it was booked out for an exhibition so we couldn't have our reception there.

Here are some pics of it:

Yeah, I think Hatcher's Manor might not be the place for us...

But the Cascade Brewery looks beautiful, and I'll check out that waterside pavilion.. I might need some catering recommendations though if we end up going with that!

And D'Entrecasteaux looks amazing! I've sent them an email to enquire about their wedding packages..

I would recommend
- D'entrecastaux (its expensive... its gone up a lot in cost since i got married there,... however personally i would pay the extra if i had to get married again, because everything was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO perfect)

- Peppermint Bay, lovely... My parents house is righ near there, so i go here heaps, and its just beautiful

- Stonefields... however they don't have a website, so it would be hard for you. It an old estate near Brighton, which is just beautiful. Bonus about this is its BYO alcohol (however they do serve it for you) so you can save money, and they have a lovely old house you can get ready in. Its a set cost per person too... So they don't charge extra for "Room Hire" "decorations" etc etc.

- Cascade garders is nice... so long as you book the main room (My friend had it in one of the smaller rooms, and it wasn't that nice...)

- Meadow Bank, however My sister got married there, and it was quite expensive,... for plain boring food. It is very popular though

- Moorilla - never been there for a wedding, but its pretty. Quite modern and "cold" feeling though. However im sure flowers and it being set up for a wedding it would be nice


I would be asking for a discount on the "normal" wedding pricing as your wedding will be on a Tuesday.

how many people are you having?
