New Farm Park Elopements

The beautiful centrally located New Farm Park has several areas that make the perfect backdrop for small and intimate elopement weddings.

Here we share some of our favourite spots that you may like to consider for your New Farm Park elopement. As some of the following areas are not designated booking sites, they are only suited to small intimate wedding ceremonies, and you may need to be flexible if your preferred spot is unavailable on the day.

Tree Elopement

Weddings and elopements can take place beneath a beautiful grand old tree at New Farm Park. If opting for this tree by the rotunda, we recommend booking the rotunda site through Brisbane City Council to ensure exclusive use of this spot.

Rose Gardens

The New Farm Park rose gardens offer ample locations for your ceremony to take place. While the roses are cut back through winter, they are in full bloom by Spring, creating a stunning backdrop with rose bushes in a variety of vibrant colours.

The happy couple looked so relaxed and so in love as they shared the vows they had written to one another and exchanged rings. They were kind enough to give me a 5 star review with the following comments:

“My husband and I eloped! We just wanted a relaxed and chilled ceremony and that is exactly what we got.

It was a lovely way to marry my best friend. Thank you Jamie for making our day amazing and exactly what we wanted.

Not only are you very professional, you are a happy, fun and down to earth Celebrant. Thank you for marrying us and being part of our special day. I wish there was more stars on here as I would give you a higher rating”
