Ceremony and Preparations

With sweeping expansive lawns, mature trees and colourful flowerbeds, 144 on Jones is the perfect spot to capture the most special moment in your lives - your wedding ceremony

This outside venue allows several stunning garden locations to set the scene for your ceremony. It offers a perfect, romantic backdrop for your vows and will give lasting memories of the place you say 'I do'

This package offers two nights’ accommodation in both the Columbus Suite and Columbus Cottage, use of the Suite for bridal preparation and photos and exclusive use of the gardens for photos, your ceremony and cocktail hour.  We do not host wedding receptions here at 144 on Jones, but there are many local venues near by.





Being a registered celebrant, I will create a beautiful, fun and personal ceremony just for you.  I will be available every step of the way to help you feel confident, relaxed and able to enjoy your special moment.

The Columbus Suite is a beautiful room, spacious and light and offers our guests a luxurious space to rest and unwind.  For the bridal party the Suite  presents a perfect room to relax and enjoy the excitement of preparing for the big moment ahead.  It has it's own dressing room, ensuite with  kitchenette and a little patio offering afternoon sun and is completely private from the main garden 


Columbus Cottage is a gorgeous cottage set privately in the gardens, looking out over beautiful lawns and mature trees.  This space is offered as a second accommodation for your use with the ceremony option

So now that the 'I Do's' have been said and declarations made, it's time to celebrate, unwind and enjoy a glass of bubbles and perhaps a nibble or two and chat with friends and family.  It's the perfect time to get those group shots and candid photos


The garden offers abundant choices for the ceremony spot; under the arch of willow branches, with a backdrop of hydrangeas or in perfect semi-circle of grisilnias.  There is so much greenery and flowers that really your flower budget need only be your bouquet!  Large, mature trees are scattered throughout the garden offering shade and grandeur. With birds singing and the gentle rustle of  leaves in the trees, the ceremony is all set
