Civil Ceremonies and Blessings

Truly romantic with natural simplicity, Coolbawn Quay is the perfect place to profess eternal love, whether through a Civil Ceremony or a simply Blessing.


Over the summer months ceremonies and blessings are generally conducted on the deck perched over the water with only the sounds of nature in the background. A series of softly draped Gazebos and parasols provide shelter for the Romantic Couple and their guests. There is no restriction on the number of guests due to the size and scale of the deck.

The deck, inner harbour and surrounding pathways are exclusive on the day and form the perfect backdrop for photographic memories. As part of the package, the inner harbour is free of all moorings.


Throughout the winter, Civil Ceremonies and Blessings are conducted in either the Schoolhouse or the Drawing Room, with restrictions on numbers due to the size of the rooms.

As Civil Ceremonies and Blessings form part of the Wedding Package, there is no additional charge for the use or set up of the venue. You are free to tastefully enhance and personalise the setting with the addition of flowers and bows. Flower petals may be used as confetti. Traditional paper confetti is not permissible as Coolbawn Quay is an area of special conservation.

For added protection in case of rain a marquee with a transparent cover is available to hire.
