Why Choose a Joncia Gardens Wedding
A Joncia Gardens wedding is unforgettable. Joncia has 2 1/2 acres of award winning gardens and is one of my very favourite ceremony venues. Joncia is at Logan Reserve, about halfway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. There’s plenty of free parking onsite.
A Joncia Gardens Wedding is Beautiful
Joncia Gardens was built specially for wedding ceremonies. There are eight gorgeous ceremony areas.
Outdoor Open Areas
Five ceremony areas are outdoors. Each has some protection from the summer heat. They are either shaded by trees or have a gazebo or other shade structure to keep your guests cool and comfortable. The largest outdoor space, the Poinciana area, can accommodate weddings with lots of guests. The cute little Rotunda, on an island in the middle of a pond, has a Monet style bridge and is perfect for tiny, intimate ceremonies.
You have a choice of two roofed outdoor areas for a Joncia Gardens wedding. The All Weather area and the quirky Depot Diner can both hold large numbers of guests and are perfect for wet weather.
The Little Bush Chapel
The Little Bush Chapel looks like it’s been there for 150 years. Wrong! It was built just a few years ago and looks like a country church. It is beautiful inside, with camphor laurel pews and stained glass windows featuring native birds and flowers. It’s another great spot for a Joncia Gardens wedding.
Joncia Gardens is a photographer’s delight. There are so many wonderful photo locations for a Joncia Gardens wedding. But you can get married somewhere else and still have your photos at Joncia. The Gardens can be booked by the hour for photos for weddings, formals, etc.
Joncia Garden Wedding Packages
There are three different packages available, ranging from basic hire of an area to an all-inclusive, though quite affordable, option. Details can be found on the Joncia website.
No Reception Facilities
Although you can have a wedding at Joncia Gardens, you can’t have your reception there because there are no catering or bar facilities. There are plenty of great reception venues in Logan, so finding somewhere nice for your reception shouldn’t be a problem.
There are lots of council owned parks in Logan that are also worth a look, although none are nearly as spectacular as Joncia.
