CEREMONY


WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS ON OUR WEDDING DAY?

Our Terrace Bar which adjoins the Dining Room is protected from the elements, so outdoor ceremonies can still go ahead if the weather isn’t desirable.


DO WE HAVE TO SHARE THE GARDENS ON OUR WEDDING DAY?

No you don’t. At Allegro we only have one function at a time.


WHAT IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR FOR MY WEDDING?

Spring through to Autumn is the popular, high-demand time of the year. This period usually books out first, so if you’re interested in this period, please be in touch as soon as possible.


WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR CEREMONY MUSIC?

Most couples use a sound system eg iPod and dock or CD player and have a friend assist with the duties.  On occasion, couples have live music rangiong from a harpist to a string ensemble to a full blown rock band.   Please see our preferred service provider list for prospective musicians.


HOW LONG IN ADVANCE SHOULD I RESERVE MY WEDDING DATE AT ALLEGRO?

We accept wedding reservations up to two years in advance.

If your heart is set on a particular date, we suggest reserving that date two years in advance. If you can be flexible with your wedding date (highly recommended), we suggest reserving a date 12-18 months in advance. Some prime dates may still be available with shorter notice.


CAN I ARRANGE FOR A LONGER TIME IN THE GARDEN?

You can have a longer time in the garden. To extend your overall time at Allegro the price is $7pp per half hour.


DO YOU DO MORE THAN ONE WEDDING AT A TIME?

No, we only do one at a time but we can do two weddings in one day. Allegro is a large facility with over 500 sq metres function space. Care is given to ensure that evening guests are not arriving as the daytime guests are departing.


DO YOU HAVE A BRIDAL RETREAT?

Allegro has a comfortable Bridal Retreat with period furniture pieces and a floor to ceiling mirror wall, with private facilities adjoining.


DO YOU HAVE ON-SITE CEREMONIES? INDOORS OR OUTDOORS? HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?

Allegro has a beautiful gazebo area for outdoor garden wedding ceremonies. The covered balcony is also a perfect spot if you prefer. It was designed to be suitable for garden ceremonies if wet weather prevails on your wedding day. The garden hire fee is $700 one hour in the garden and this includes setup of register table and 20 garden chairs, full length lace overlay for register table and unlimited rehearsals prior to your wedding day.


I AM CONSIDERING HOLDING THE CEREMONY IN THE GARDEN, HOW MANY PEOPLE COULD YOU FIT (SEATED) IN THE GARDEN? WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A PROPER CHRISTIAN SERVICE (1 HR+) AND HAVE ABOUT 120 GUESTS FOR THE CEREMONY. WOULD THERE BE ENOUGH SPACE FOR THEM?

We’ve had Indian ceremonies lasting up to 2hrs with 180 seated.  So for your situation we’d have about 70-80 on the tiered area infront of the gazebo, with another 20-25 chairs either side in the garden.


WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE FOR ME TO BRING MY OWN MUSICIAN TO PLAY THE BABY GRAND PIANO?

There is a charge of $100 for any musicians to use the piano. If it is a guest playing just a couple of numbers there is no charge.


IS IT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO BRING IN MY OWN DECORATIONS, MIc & AMPLIFIER FOR THE CEREMONY?

Yes, no problem. You are welcome to decorate the gazebo area to your theme and use your own equipment.  We have an amp and mic if you need to hire any extra equipment.  Any decorations must be removed after the ceremony has concluded.
