I am going insane! I can't seem to find a reception venue that will do an al fresco wedding for 40 people - I'd like to have a garden wedding ceremony & reception. I also want to do a candy bar + have a subdued alice in wonderland theme - possibly some croquet & a giant chess set. Bundaleer rainforest is not taking my fancy for numerous reasons and I can't seem to find anywhere else that would offer an outdoor wedding for such a small party. I have also considered Abbey of the Roses & Pepper's Ruffles Spa & Lodge because they have small wedding group reception and accommodation packages but I'd need to cull my guest list back and get a bus to drive them out to the venue from Brisbane.
I'm so sick of looking for a garden that I'm seriously considering putting an advert in the paper to see if anyone is willing to offer their backyard or paddock with shady tree
If anybody knows of anywhere I would really appreciate the assistance! Gabbinbar of course is perfect! But probably too expensive.
