We live in a beautiful part of the world, perfect for an outdoor wedding ceremony. MidCoast Council is happy to permit wedding ceremonies on Council reserves and beaches. However, we are unable to allow wedding receptions.
There is a fee to use a Council reserve or beach for a wedding ceremony, which can be found in our Fees and Charges(PDF, 2MB) under 'Community Spaces Bookings'. You will also need to submit an application to use public land. We will need the following additional information:
The approximate number of guests (so any parking issues can be sorted out).
Tell us about any special items you will be bringing to the ceremony (such as carpet, seating, tables, arches, flowers, etc.)
Other than at Pebbly Beach Outdoor Learning Centre, we can't give exclusive use of public spaces, so it is requested there be no disturbance to other users. Rice or confetti is also not allowed on any reserve or beach.
For more information on holding a wedding in a public space, please go to our 'Holding an Event' web page.
You can search for any of our parks, public halls and community centres on our 'Find a Facility' page.
