Ceremony Venue

Carisbrook House

Yesterday we started scouting out some locations to have our wedding ceremony, and had a look at Carisbrook House in Lane Cove.

Carisbrook House is located at 334 Burns Bay Road, Lane Cove, and was definitely worth the visit. Built in 1835 from local sandstone, the place has been modified a few times since then, but retains is character.

Almost instantly we fell in love with the place, not just the gardens which are fantastic, but the house itself, and in every room there's a story and oodles of history to be told. The gentleman that showed us around was very friendly, and his knowledge was amazing.

When we mentioned that we were thinking about having our wedding ceremony there, and when Eva told him that we were planning for mid/late August 2009, the gentleman assured us that this was the best time of the year as the garden is alive and blooming.

Sadly my camera ran out of juice, and I had to resort to using the camera in my N95, but luckilly I'd taken a number of great shots before this happened.

We also had a look at Clarkes Point Reserve in Woolwich, but weren't so taken with it, great location, but it is very open, and should the weather be bad, your well out in the open with few places to hide.

Clarkes Point Reserve is definitely blessed with some fantastic views of the city, but it's hard to get to, and when the wind blows, it blows hard as it was yesterday afternoon.

Hey, the gardens look great. Is there an area that will fit everyone?

There should be, depends on where you hold the ceremony. It looks like there are several spots to choose from.
