Bloedel Conservatory is an exotic setting for a cocktail party, anniversary celebration, fundraiser, birthday party or wedding and can be booked for a reasonable fee seven days a week.

Weddings under the dome

Our top three ceremony locations are the Banyan Fig, Bridge, and Bird Feeders, but we recommend arranging a viewing to pick your perfect spot.

Wedding ceremonies can be held in the morning before the conservatory opens or in the evening after we have closed to the public. 

Evening ceremonies can be extended until 11pm for an additional fee of $242 + GST per hour.

 Additional booking of $242+ GST is required if you would like to add a one hour rehearsal.

Packages include:

  • Two hours of exclusive use of the conservatory
  • A liaison for two hours
