Edogawa Commemorative Garden

Weddings and Function Hire

Garden Wedding

 
The ​​garden offers a beautiful outdoor venue for weddings and other functions.

Weddings are normally held in the Koi Pavilion which provides limited shelter. This space is suitable for small intimate weddings, naming ceremonies and other functions. The surrounding outdoor space is large enough to cater for wedding parties of up to 150 people.

As the garden is a gift to the people of Gosford, public access throughout normal opening times (9.30am - 4.30pm) must be maintained. Wedding parties and other special events do not have exclusive use during these hours.

Booking time

Bookings can be made for a maximum for a period of one and a half hours; this includes allocated time for set up and photography. Bookings are made in two hour time slots to avoid events clashing. Events concluding after 4.30pm will require additional staffing and may incur an additional fee.

Set up

The gallery’s reception officer will be on-site to assist you with the smooth running of your special day and will coordinate the set up and removal of furniture.

A table for signing the registry along with limited seating (max 20 chairs) are available as part of your booking.  

Rehearsals

Wedding parties are welcome to organise one rehearsal; however, a suitable time must be booked in advance.  

Functions

H&H Catering are the onsite caterer. For further information, please email them directly at info@handhcatering.com.au

Event confetti/decorations  

Confetti, rice, party poppers, rose petals and fireworks are not permitted in the ​​gallery or ​​garden at anytime.

Fee

The hire fee is $395 for a one and a half hour booking. An additional cleaning/damage fee will be incurred if the garden is not returned to its original condition following the event. A 50% deposit is required at the time of booking; with the remaining balance to be paid one week prior to event.  

Booking is only secure upon the receipt of a deposit.

Cancellation

Cancellations prior to final payment will forfeit the 50% deposit. Cancellations after final payment will forfeit the full amount.

  • The outdoor Koi pavilion is a sheltered structure which accommodates up to 25 people;
  • The outdoor tea house offers more protection and accommodates up to 25-40 people standing;or
  • Other spaces in the gallery building need to be booked and may incur an additional fee.
