Memories of a special day
Do I need to make an appointment to come and have a look at Joondalup Resort?
An appointment is preferred. When you book a private appointment, we dedicate our time to you and only you. This way, all our bride and grooms receive the same amount of dedicated time from us to view the venue, go through available dates and talk about menus. We take the time to answer all your questions so you leave the Resort happy and content that you have booked your big day with us!
How quickly do I need to book?
If your preferred date is available you can book as soon as you like. Most couples book 18 months in advance to secure their preferred date, their preferred ceremony location and preferred reception room. There is no limitation on how far out you need to book.
Is there a Wedding Coordinator on the day to help me?
Yes, we are at the Resort on the wedding day to meet the Bride and Bridal Party on arrival and escort them to the ceremony area. We assemble you ready for the ceremony entrance, cue the celebrant and the music to begin your walk down the aisle. We also make sure the Groom and Groomsmen are in position at the ready! Unfortunately we are unable to assist with hair and make up, help the Bridal Party get dressed, deliver flowers or usher guests. We are also there for your Bridal Party entrance into your Reception so you are not left in the Hotel wondering where you need to be.
What happens if it rains on my wedding day?
Not to worry! We will bring your ceremony inside to an available space we have on the day. We require 2 hours notice from you in which you can decide to stay outside or be moved inside. The space will be allocated by the Resort and cannot be booked in advance.
Are rose petals or confetti allowed at my ceremony?
Fresh or dried rose petals are allowed with the use of the red aisle carpet. Fresh or dried pure white or cream (no coloured edges) are allowed with the cream carpet. Bubbles and biodegradable confetti are allowed at all ceremony areas. Fake/silk rose petals, confetti and rice are not permitted at all.
What can my guests do in between the ceremony and before the reception?
Guests have a number of options. The Bistro 38 Restaurant and Bar is a public area where they can purchase their own snacks and beverages while they wait for your Reception. Alternatively they can check into their accommodation if they haven’t done so already, play a game of golf, use the Resort’s facilities such as the gym and spa or just relax and unwind by the pool with a glass of wine.
Where can we have our wedding photographs?
Anywhere around the Hotel grounds of the Resort and inside the Hotel is allowed (don’t forget to have a photo on our famous staircase!). You will be given a ‘boundary map’ once you confirm your booking. If you would like to go out on the golf course for photos, you need to hire the golf buggies, you cannot just walk out onto the course as this is dangerous.
Can we go out on the golf course for photos?
The Bridal Party can hire the golf buggies for post-ceremony photographs for one hour. A staff member will escort you out in the buggies to designated areas around the course. Specific areas have been allocated for this purpose. Please contact your Wedding Executive to book the golf buggies.
Are we allowed a ceremony rehearsal?
Yes and we do recommend you have a rehearsal with all your bridal party members and your celebrant a few days prior to your wedding day. After you have discussed this with your marriage officiant, please contact us to book a time and day suitable. Your wedding coordinator does not attend your rehearsal as we do not want to encroach on your marriage officiant’s role.
Are candles allowed?
Candles are allowed at the Ceremony and Reception but must be encased in full and sealed holders to catch all the wax so it does not drip onto our linen.
What time does my Reception start?
Your Reception begins with your pre dinner drinks. For example, if you have booked your Reception 6pm-12midnight, your pre dinner drinks start at 6pm, guests enter the Reception at 6.30pm, your Bridal entrance is at 6.45pm and the Reception finishes at 12midnight.
Are pre-dinner drinks charged separately to the beverage package I have chosen?
Your beverage package starts when your pre-dinner drinks commence. The same applies if you have chosen beverages on consumption. Your tab begins at the pre-dinner drinks time.
How many people can fit at each table?
A maximum of 10 guests per table. Highchairs are classed as a seat at the table.
How many people can fit on the bridal table?
Any number! We make up your bridal table using trestle tables and we sit 3 people to a trestle table.
When do we meet and when do we discuss the menus and beverages?
We meet approximately 2 months before the wedding for your first official appointment and we will contact you in due course to arrange a day and time suitable. At this appointment we will discuss the details of your wedding including your menu, chosen entertainment, decorations, room layout and a timing schedule of your ceremony and reception will be created by us in the shape of an event order (run sheet).
Do you cater for dietary requirements?
Yes. Dietary requirements such as vegetarians, vegans or guests with an allergy are catered for by our Chefs. You do not need to choose your wedding menu based on your dietary guests.
Do you offer discounted accommodation rates for my wedding guests?
Absolutely! Guests requiring accommodation must book online at www.joondalupresort.com.au to secure a 10% discount from our best available rate at the time of booking. Further details will be made available to you on confirmation of the wedding being held at Joondalup Resort.
