Pirianda Gardens is located in Olinda, in the Dandenong Ranges, the 11 hectare terraced gardens of Pirianda are
distinctive for their combination of botanically important trees, shrubs and perennials with an over storey of large
blackwoods and mountain ash towering over the natural fern gullies.

From the pathway across the top of open lawns at Pirianda ,the view south takes in Kallista and the valley of Sassafras
Creek and parts of Sherbrooke Forest. On a clear day you can see Arthur’s Seat on the Mornington Peninsula and
French Island in Westernport.
A gazebo located near the top of this spectacular garden is an excellent location for your wedding ceremony.

Pirianda Gardens is stunning all year round but particularly beautiful in autumn when the trees change colour to the
many hues of orange, red and yellow.
This beautiful garden provides the perfect surroundings for your special day.

Your booking, for a fee of $420, includes:

•        Wedding Ceremony Permit
•        Exclusive hire of selected site for 2 hours
•        A small metal garden setting (1 round table, two chairs), for signing of register

To protect visitors and the Gardens’ environment:

•    No vehicles are permitted to drive within the gardens.
•    If you have elderly or disabled guests we suggest that you choose a location close to the car park.
•    Confetti or rice is not permitted within the grounds of the gardens; however flower petals, butterfly releases or
     bubbles are acceptable.
•    Clients are permitted to decorate their preferred site; however set up and removal of items must be within the 2
     hour booking.

     gardens, departure of guests and bridal party and removal of decorations, rubbish etc.
•    Please choose your site carefully as some sites are not accessible for elderly guests. You may wish to bring
     some chairs for wedding guests who may require seating.
•    We suggest you advise your guests to wear appropriate footwear as your chosen site may be a distance from the
     car park.
•    Please ensure that all guests understand the location of your wedding. We suggest you photocopy the map
     overleaf for distribution to guests.
•    Please note that there is no power or running water available at any of the sites.
•    As the Garden does not have a large undercover area you will need to have an alternative venue arranged in
     case of inclement weather. No refund will be given if you cancel your wedding due to weather conditions.
•    Music is permitted during your ceremony provided sound levels are kept to a level that does not disturb other
     users of the gardens.

     reserved for you and the majority of people respect that this is your special day.
Extreme Weather Conditions:

•    If your wedding day is declared as Total Fire Ban/Code Red Fire Danger rating the gardens will be closed and your
     wedding will be unable to go ahead in any of our properties. In these instances Parks Victoria will refund you fully.
•    If there is a Total Fire Ban/Extreme or Total Fire Ban/Severe Fire Danger Rating on the day of your wedding the
     Gardens will be closed to the general public but your event can still go ahead under the supervision of a Ranger.
•    The Gardens may also be closed if severe/damaging winds gusting at 80 km/h or more are forecast for the Central
     Region for the day of your wedding. For the safety of your guests we may need to cancel your booking, in which case
     a full refund will be provided.
•    It is anticipated that Total Fire Ban days of Code Red or Extreme Fire Danger Rating will be called by the Bureau of
     Meteorology and will be declared up to 3 days ahead. Severe Weather Warnings may only be called the day prior to
     your wedding day.

We would recommend that you think about alternative arrangements for your wedding ceremony in case of a Code
Red or Extreme Fire Danger Rating day or a day with Severe Weather Warnings.

Whatever season your wedding is you can be sure Pirianda Gardens will provide a setting that will be perfect to capture your
special day.
