Read the guidelines for permitting the use of parks for wedding photos and ceremonies during COVID-19.

City parks, gardens and indoor conservatories are lovely locations for wedding ceremonies and photography.

Outdoor sites are dependent on weather and availability – typically April 30 to October 31. Conservatories are available year-round. Ceremonies are stand-up only. No chairs are permitted.

Accompany your ceremony with soft pre-recorded music or live non-amplified music.
