What if it rains?
No matter what time of the year, it’s impossible to predict Adelaide’s weather. Hopefully we’ll have a bit of pre-warning if it does decide to rain and then there are a few different options available.

In the past, some couples have chosen to organise marquees for down on the lawns so the ceremony can still take place down there. Alternatively we will hold the ceremony in the function room so you still have a beautiful backdrop, then send all guests upstairs for some drinks while our staff reset the room for the reception.
