The beautifully maintained and centrally located New Farm Park has several areas that make the perfect backdrop for small and intimate elopement weddings.
Here are some of our favourite locations that you may like to consider for your New Farm Park elopement. As 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 thee day.
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 an abundance of rose bushes in a variety of vibrant colours.
This couple opted for a relaxed, stress-free small and intimate wedding ceremony with Celebrant Jamie Eastgate delivering their short and simple ceremony, with their Photographer and Celebrant Cara as their 2 witnesses and it was perfect!

As draping or décor is not permitted on the rose garden arbour structures, this couple arranged for a stunning four poster arbour by Brisbane Wedding Decorators at sunset, and they enjoyed a celebratory glass of champagne here afterwards.
This small and intimate New Farm Park elopement at the rose gardens with simply the Photographer and second Celebrant Cara as witnesses was relaxed, happy and perfect. Cara loved being the official ring bearer!
This sweet and intimate elopement at Brisbane’s New Farm Park took place beneath this huge old tree just steps from the Brisbane river and the Brisbane Powerhouse.
The happy couple enjoyed a stress free, fuss free private small wedding ceremony in the company of just their 2 photographers who were also their witnesses.
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”

Jaimee and Brendan decided to secretly elope in a small, intimate and relaxed morning elopement beneath this gorgeous old Fig tree in Brisbane’s New Farm Park.
The happy couple invited guests over for lunch and their surprised guests arrived to see them dressed up in their finest wedding attire, to the news they had just got married, and that the lunch was actually a celebration.
Blank Canvas Photography was on hand to capture all the special moments. At the couples request the ceremony was short and sweet after which the couple enjoyed a post wedding photo shoot around New Farm Park and Brisbane Powerhouse.
