Gema Group offers three stunning wedding venues in Canberra, each boasting great indoor and outdoor spaces for ceremonies and receptions. You can celebrate your nuptials in a beautiful Manuka Oval, set amongst the cypress, poplar, oak and elm trees planted in the 1920’s. This function space is ideal for big weddings of up to 300 people, but it also has intimate function spaces. Our special tip for brides and grooms who decide to host their wedding here is to post a personalised message on the John Fingleton scoreboard and capture it on a photo to make a fabulous memento.

If you are planning a big event, you can also host your wedding at the GIO Stadium. It is the biggest arena in the Australian Capital Territory and a truly unique Canberra wedding venue. There are multiple reception areas to choose from, including a garden marquee and elegant function rooms overlooking the pitch or a nature reserve.

Gema Group also offers you the chance to celebrate at Canberra’s Commonwealth Park during the annual flower festival Floraide which takes place every spring. It is a perfect venue if you want a spectacular outdoor wedding, so host your banquet reception surrounded by the sea of vibrant flowers if you want a truly unforgettable experience. You can also celebrate in a beautifully decorated marquee, set up in a gorgeous location.
