Intimate Weddings

For a truly unique wedding, ceremonies for up to 30 people can be held in the Tropical, Desert or Show Domes at the Mitchell Park Domes during regular opening hours.

A ceremony permit is required for ceremonies, plus admission per person. Permits are for two hours and include photography at your selected site. For private ceremonies, an after-hours rental is required.

Bookings for ceremony permits are accepted up to three years in advance and are available year-round, except on days when special events are scheduled. When you're planning your event, keep in mind that areas inside the three Domes are not air conditioned and will still be open to public visitors.
