Hi Manda :)

Just to clarify, do you mean by any chance the little gazebo that is near one of the huuuuge trees around the park?

I went to a wedding there in the middle of winter, and I'm pretty sure there were NO decorations- but it was such an amazingly gorgeous day, and it's in such a picturesque location that I never even thought about that til now.. It didn't need it I really think, it looked so pretty just as it was!

Sorry that might not help much, but it was really lovely even without. Don't underestimate the attractiveness of the area to compensate for no decorations.

This was in the info sheet they emailed me 2 weeks ago...

Any decorations used for your wedding MUST NOT cause any damage to the Park (eg nails, staples,
holes in the ground etc), and must be removed immediately following your ceremony.


But i am so glad we can use the flags!!!

Are you hiring yours? What about chairs? I was thinking of getting just a few chairs for the oldies if they want to sit, specially if they have to wait.

Are you going to decorate the rotunda with anything?

Umm our celebrant is supplying 4 flags and 16 chairs and also red carpet.. so i think we will only need to get a couple more bali flags and we will be sweet. Not sure yet where we will get them from got to make a couple of phone calls I guess. umm we arent going to do anything to the rotunda... it looks awesome as is..

I'm guessing with the information, they mean no large holes or something because the woman on the phone was quite happy for us to put the bali flags in

That whole area is gorgeous too, if it's not too far for you to go, then I'd say you can't go wrong with Gerringong! :D
