The Taronga Centre at Taronga Zoo has been named one of Australia’s top three best wedding locations by Vogue Bride Australia.

The panoramic views of the Harbour from the Taronga Centre and the Zoo’s remarkable wildlife have been bringing couples to Taronga since 1987 to celebrate their marriage at the Zoo with the View.

Many couples celebrate their marriage in the Zoo grounds before returning to the Taronga Centre for a fine dining reception with dress circle views of the Harbour CBD, Opera House and Bridge.

Megan Nugara, the Marketing Executive for the Taronga Centre, said “We’re delighted to be recognised by Vogue Bride Australia for the unique experience we’re able to provide to wedding couples and their guests through a combination of great service, a selection of fine food and the centre’s 180 degrees of wonderful Sydney Harbour views. Some weddings have even been completed to the sounds of wildlife from bird calls to lions’ roars. It’s a gift for wildlife too as the bookings support the Zoo’s efforts in wildlife conservation and education.”

When booking a wedding, the newlyweds have the opportunity to select two spots within the Zoo to have photos with some of the Zoo’s animals. These include the chance to have photos with an Echidna, Powerful Owl, Ring-tail Possums, Tortoises or even a Snake.

To add to the special occasion one popular choice is to incorporate animals into the wedding theme. A number of wedding celebrations name their tables after the animals that are in common with the chosen wedding décor.

The Taronga Centre is a suitable all year round wedding venue and provides a variety of food with packages ranging from classic to premium.
