Things to make you go ‘I do’.

VENUE FEATURE: Terara Riverside Gardens

If you’re one of the lucky humans that’s getting hitched and looking to celebrate at a unique south coast wedding venue, you might want to check out Terara Riverside Gardens.

This five-acre waterfront wedding venue has everything you need to create a beautiful entire-weekend celebration including a marquee, accommodation and a rustic barn. Being right on the river you can even make a grand entrance by boat (or canoe as one couple did).

Hey guys, can you give us the rundown on Terara?

A gorgeous wedding venue on the NSW south coast, 20 minutes south of Berry. Five beautiful acres of garden, smack bang on the Shoalhaven River. A huge marquee comes with your booking, along with all of the necessities – from tables to chairs, cutlery, crockery and glassware. So you can just rock up, bring along your fave florist and stylist or DIY your big day… and voila – you’re set to say “I do”.

What inspired you to get involved with weddings?

We just love all things creative and fun. Who doesn’t enjoy being around loved-up couples 24/7?! We have never worked harder than since owning this wedding venue, but it’s the best work we’ve ever done!

Tell us about the facilities your venue offers?

Accommodation for eight guests, a marquee to seat 120 people, five acres of gorgeous gardens, a commercial kitchen, and lots of fun. Bits and bops – from a large LOVE sign to wine barrels and lawn games. Not to mention an array of awesome spots to host your ceremony.

What do you think is the selling point for most couples?

The fact they can walk into our beautiful venue and almost everything is ready to go. It’s well maintained, has lots of accommodation and a cafe culture nearby for guests and is seriously an epic spot to say “I do”.

Do you offer onsite accommodation? And are there places to stay nearby?

We sure do. For eight guests, including a gorgeous bridal preparation studio! When it comes to your guests, there are some really cute BNB’s, along with larger motel-style accommodation.

What’s your favourite thing you’ve seen a couple do at your venue?

Dance their first dance under the moon. How romantic!

And what do you think would be epic at your property? Any ideas you’d love to see a couple carry out?

A same-sex wedding. We’re all for LOVE IS LOVE, so would love to host a same-sex wedding at TRG.

Can you describe the kind of couples your venue attracts?

All types… from DIY’ers to creative souls. We welcome everyone!

Any new additions on the horizon?

An amazing greenhouse for intimate celebrations and ceremonies. Hell yes!
