A stringed quarter looks perfect set up on the grassed tier, with our elegant signing table and chairs placed next to your celebrant. Surrounding secret gardens and deciduous trees create the perfect setting for a magnificent, tranquil and visually beautiful setting. We never tire of seeing our Brookleigh Brides ‘big reveal’ with the opening of the Stables doors and your walk through the Secret Gardens to the Portico steps. It is a majestic entrance to rival even the most majestic of chapels around the world.

The Courtyard

Nestled behind the Chateau, enveloped by the lush trees and surrounding spa gardens and pool, is the Courtyard. This area is a hidden gem, providing an intimate location for a Reception for up to 50 guests, with glass conservatory and Terraced archways setting the backdrop that has become so popular we just had to highlight it as our latest Reception option. Use each nook and cranny for your guests to relax with a glass of wine and take in the pool with stars overhead, fairy lights wrapping each tree, sparkling dance floor and even floating candles in the pool.

The Stables

The magnificent, European designed Stables offer a beautiful and unique ceremony location. If the weather has turned bad, and your wedding ceremony location needs to be moved indoors, we need only two hours to transform the stables into a magical venue reminiscent of an old country woodland Church. The high vaulted ceilings that allow for streaming light add to this atmosphere.

The Arena

The limestone arena with its arched windows simply takes your breath away. If you are looking for an area that is not only stunning, but can also hold over a 1000 guests* for a reception, then you will not find another venue in Perth that can offer what The Arena at Brookleigh can. Thanks to the natural limestone walls, the lighting at night is soft and golden, making it the most romantic of settings, and photographers love it! The area within the arena can be shaped to hold any size function and thanks to the high roofline, the acoustics are superb.

Marquee Lawn

Brookleigh Estate has the wonderful open area next to our stunning indoor arena where you can set up a Marquee or if you prefer, a beautiful wedding under the stars. With the golden light reflected of the limestone walls of the arena and the green informal hedging, the setting is reminiscent of a country wedding settled into the walls of the keep.
