Location: Senate Rose Gardens {Canberra Wedding Ceremony Location}

The Senate Rose Gardens at Old Parliament House are a very popular Canberra wedding ceremony location and once you have been there it is easy to see why. Situated within the Parliamentary Triangle (see map below) the grounds are surrounded by lovely garden beds and the lawn is well maintained making it perfect for the ceremony. In terms of wedding photos, you are spoilt for choice for great green backdrops and a variety of different scenery. It is a perfect location for couples who do not want to have to travel far from their guests for photos after the ceremony.

The photos below were taken in winter so obviously the Gardens aren’t looking their best but I hope it gives you an idea of what the area looks like. The lawn in the centre of the Senate Rose Gardens is large and can accommodate a large number of guests. It would look fantastic in the warmer months with a red / white carpet and some white chairs.

What do you think of the Senate House Gardens as a Canberra wedding ceremony location? Have you attended a wedding in the Senate House Gardens?

Thanks for visiting Iconic Photography. My name is Nicholas Brown and I am a Canberra wedding and family photographer. I am also a husband, a father and a bit of a nerd. What I love about wedding and family photography is getting to know people, listening to their stories and then helping them tell their story. Oh … and I also love coffee. So, if you’d like to sit down over a cup and tell me your story, I would love to hear it and help you share it.
