I married  a Geraldton couple, John and  Sarah, at the  Forrest Centre Reception Centre which is nestled in the heart of the CBD, tucked amongst some of Perth’s most striking gardens and architecture. The Forrest Reception Centre boasts a modern and flexible atmosphere for hosting weddings and teams this with a traditional Old World setting.

Prefacing from their website, the Forrest Reception centre is a replica of Lord Alexander Forrest’s residence, include’s Rigby’s Bar and has an old world theme flowing through its three levels, all of which are available to you when planning the events to your wedding reception. The Wedding Reception Centre is not open to the public on Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays (excluding ANZAC Day) which gives you and your guest’s exclusive use of the Reception Centre.

The purpose built Atrium is a garden setting with marble floors and a glass roof. The perfect alternative to a marquee, this area is protected from the elements and is also fully air-conditioned. The Atrium can also be made available for your wedding ceremony during the colder months.

I had never been to this venue before, so it was a first for me.  On one side of Rigby’s Bar, the B & G had their ceremony and on the other, they held their reception………..see photo set-up following. The great thing about this venue is that it can be used in either winter or summer, and takes away the variable of the weather, either way, be it too hot, or inclement.
