Style Magazine - - Promotion - WORDS BY LISA MACHIN

Roses have long been a sym­bol of love and beauty, cho­sen by count­less brides to adorn their spe­cial day. There is no Toowoomba wed­ding venue that cap­tures the beauty of this tra­di­tion better than Queens­land’s State Rose Gar­den in New­town Park. With ameni­ties and a wed­ding pagoda avail­able, it of­fers the per­fect mix­ture of con­ve­nience and pri­vacy to share your day with spe­cial guests and loved ones in Toowoomba’s iconic gar­den. Opened in 2001, the gar­dens have hosted many wed­ding par­ties in their beau­ti­fully man­i­cured and main­tained grounds. The grounds have a great his­tory, with the land pur­chased in 1913 as ‘a breath­ing space for the peo­ple,’ and opened the fol­low­ing year. Nick and Natalie Hills were mar­ried in the gar­den last year, and said it was a spec­tac­u­lar feel­ing. “My favourite part would have been the black ar­bour where we said our vows, with the beau­ti­ful pure white roses sur­round­ing it,” Natalie said. “I would rec­om­mend it to other brides in a heart­beat! “It was ab­so­lutely per­fect, ev­ery sin­gle per­son at the wed­ding said it was like a fairy­tale.” Natalie and her hus­band Nick specif­i­cally wanted an out­door cer­e­mony, and al­ways had their heart set on the venue. “I never even con­sid­ered other venues to be hon­est, I al­ways said I was get­ting mar­ried un­der the ar­bour and that was that,” Natalie said. “It was the most spec­tac­u­lar feel­ing. “I felt like a princess walk­ing through an el­e­gant gar­den; it was ethe­real.”
