Judy and John

Owners, Judy Rogers and her son John have owned Braeside for five and a half years and live on site in the the 120 year old original home

Braeside is almost 2 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens stepping down from Gooding Drive to sweeping lawns and Gin House Creek.

The Chapel and purpose-built Marquee are on the upper level. Alternatively, you can choose to have your ceremony on the paved, hedged circle on the lower lawn beside the 100-year-old Camphor Laurel tree. Presenting a superb opportunity for those special photos.

In either case, pre reception drinks and canapés can be served from the Lawn Bar or at the Shed Bar, for your guests’ entertainment and enjoyment.

We look forward to being a part of your special occasion.
