Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centre



Servicing Canberra

Formalise your marriage vows under a heritage listed Hawthorne tree – A Celtic symbol of love and protection.

Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres offer beautiful heritage settings, within which you can build your own signature wedding style.

Gorman Arts Centre boasts two internal courtyards complete with attractive gardens, and spacious lawns, each with a Hawthorne tree at its centre. The tranquil gardens are close to the city, while still providing a secluded backdrop for your love story on your wedding day.

The Gorman Main Hall, situated between the two Courtyards, is held as a wet weather option for ceremonies, allowing you to still enjoy the gardens and heritage charm.

For larger ceremonies, Ainslie Main Hall’s vaulted ceilings and large windows, provide an elegant space for more formal occasions.

Stay on after the ceremony with a Sparkling Ceremony Package. This allows you and your guests time to linger in the Courtyard, with a glass of sparkling wine. Take the opportunity to have photos around the gardens, and simply mingle with your guests.

Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres also offer reception spaces for celebrations with your closest friends or a large gathering, in the afternoon or evening. We allow you the flexibility to display your own signature style, by providing a blank canvas for you to personalise your special day. Speak to us about local bespoke suppliers who can bring a touch of artistic flair to your day.

Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres are proud to support Canberra’s LGBTIQ+ community and we look forward to welcoming you and your loved ones to our centres.
