There's no better place for special occasions than the grounds of The University of Western Australia.
Located by the Swan River in Matilda Bay and nearby Kings Park, UWA offers a stunning setting for all manner of events including wedding ceremonies, photographic sessions and filming. Indeed, the gardens and buildings of UWA are listed on the Register of the National Estate.
The Sunken Garden, with its walkover bridge and ponds, is set in a delightful amphitheatre with cascading trees over a central paved stage area where you can exchange your vows.
If you prefer a more lush setting, the Tropical Grove, with dappled light streaming through a circle of immense palm trees surrounding a central gathering place, may be just right.
After the ceremony, you will be able to wander through the Mediterranean buildings of the main campus that surround Whitfeld Court. The grandeur of Winthrop Hall, with its limestone colonnades and arches, will enhance the beauty of your wedding and give a touch of timelessness to special day.
