The Devonian Botanic Garden provides a backdrop like no other for your once-in- a-lifetime wedding or engagement photographs.
Included with Wedding Ceremonies:
A two hour photo session is included with all wedding ceremony package bookings, with access to most areas of the Garden, including the Kurimoto Japanese Garden. If the weather is unfavorable, photos can be taken in our indoor show houses (available only for wedding ceremony package bookings).
A one-hour complimentary engagement photo session is also included in wedding packages.
For Wedding Photos Only (no ceremony)
If your ceremony is elsewhere, but you would like to take your wedding photos at the Devonian Botanic Garden, you can book a session of 1.5 to 3 hours in length in various areas of the Garden.
Bookings are subject to availability, so reserve early to avoid disappointment.
The Kurimoto Japanese Garden is our most popular location for wedding photos. It is a very special five-acre garden that features a beautiful curved bridge, pond, waterfalls, pagodas and stone lanterns,and an elegant, manicured background.
Because of the popularity of the Kurimoto Japanese Garden, care is taken not to overbook the space;photo sessions are staggered and the number of groups in the Garden at any one time is limited.
However, there is some overlap in scheduling and there may be several groups taking photos at the same time.
The Main Garden is a large area containing many gardens, including the Primula Dell, Calla Pond and Alpine Garden, as well as several wooden bridges and the charming John's Folly.
