Wedding at Rainforest Gardens Mount Cotton

Rainforest Gardens is located atop Mount Cotton in the Redlands, south east of Brisbane city. The property features over 20 acres of tropical gardens, with a purpose-built wedding ceremony platform which overlooks a lilly padded pond with fountains. Timber benches are terraced into the hillside for guest seating. The gardens are always shady, even on a very warm Brisbane summer day. A new pavilion has been constructed in the event of rainy weather, and the venue also provides a built-in sound system for ceremonies. You might recognise this venue from the movie Ticket to Paradise with Julia Roberts and George Clooney.

Gorgeous bride, Katie, and her handsome man, Jerome, are absolutely besotted with each other. Their excitement and passion gave a real buzz to their wedding day and guests were uplifted to see two such genuine humans seal their joyous connection. The kiss is a moment of euphoria in the wedding ceremony, after all the build up and anxiety of arriving at the wedding venue is finally released and the couple celebrate their official newlywed status.

Katie wrote, “Cheryl, thank you so much for being our absolutely amazing celebrant. We are so happy you were part of our special day and part of all the enerfy and magic the day brought. Than you for being so patient, kind, and funny with us. We had so many beautiful comments about how you performed and spoke during the ceremony. You really kept us all calm, relaxed, and grounded. And thank you for being so prompt with lodging all the paperwork and all the emails and calls!”
