Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens Elopements

Brisbane City Celebrants love performing elopements at the Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens, with a fantastic variety of lush greenery filled and lake backdrops you are spoilt for choice.

While the Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens have official ceremony lawns that can be booked for standard weddings to accommodate a number of guests, with an elopement you have the freedom and flexibility to pick a spot you like and if it's available on the day, we can simply set up and you can tie the knot.

Lovers Jetty Elopements

These two lovebirds opted to elope in Brisbane at the gorgeous Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens in the presence of just 2 witnesses. Small intimate elopements are so relaxed, enjoyable and stress-free and we love these photos of the bride and groom beaming with happiness.


To keep their ceremony small and intimate, they opted to have their Photographer Jon from Blank Canvas Photography as one of their witnesses and we love seeing how he captured their special day here.

With his bride to be based overseas for much of the wedding planning process, the thoughtful groom planned this sweet elopement at Mt Coot-tha Botanicals Gardens Lovers Jetty.

It was the perfect spot for post wedding photos too.


Brisbane Wedding Decorators who specialise in styling ceremonies and ceremony set ups were on hand to perfectly decorate the jetty with hanging fresh florals lining the aisle and fresh floral arrangements on the alter.




Evoke Studios were on hand to capture the Mt Coot-tha elopement taking place, followed by post wedding photos around the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens.

Congratulations to the happy newly weds on your elopement at Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens.



Japanese Gardens Elopements

"working with Jamie was such a breeze. He helped us prepare all the documents in the lead up to our elopement and was really great on the day.

When we needed assistance, we always got a quick response. We had a small elopement with just the 2 of us and our witnesses, but really, no event is too big or small for for him. 5 stars just don't do him justice."

The Japanese Gardens in Mt Coot-tha offers a lovely backdrop for small and intimate weddings and elopements. We can even bring along a signing table for signing the marriage paperwork.

As this isn't an area that can be booked, while there is no charge to enjoy the Japanese Gardens, use of the gardens is subject to the gardens being available on the day as occasionally the council undertake maintenance work in the area.



5 STAR REVIEW "Jamie was very professional and helpful. He assisted us with all our needs and minimised any stress leading up to the day. We highly recommend Jamie Eastgate to anyone who is looking for a Celebrant who is mindful, professional and flexible.' Ryan & Jen - Japanese Gardens Elopement

If you would like to have your guests seated for your elopement, guest chairs can be hired through Brisbane City Celebrants.

Just let us know how many chairs you would like and we will arrange for them to be delivered and set up on the day for you.

Bush Chapel Elopements

Mt Coot-tha holds a very private and somewhat secret designated booking site, called the Bush Chapel. Accessible via a short uphill walk, this little known about bush chapel surrounded by tall trees provides privacy and romance. The area has built in log seating, perfect for seating a small number of guests.
