There are several reasons why you should get married outdoors. The great outdoors provides a magnificent backdrop for the ceremony as well as the photos.

Natural light is the best light for photography – it’s a photographer’s dream. The light will be soft and warm with plenty of dimension. Another benefit is the space.

You will have so much more space than you could ever get at an indoor venue.


A versatile choice

When planning an outdoor wedding, you should pick a venue that has several options.

Ballara Receptions has several different outdoor areas.

With expansive grounds, a lake, lakeside jetty, private garden, gazebo area and courtyard, your only problem will be deciding which one to hold the ceremony!
