If you would like to host your wedding ceremony in a public park in the Moreton Bay Region, you will need to apply for a wedding ceremony permit. Council regulates these activities to make sure they are carried out safely and are considerate to residents and other park visitors.
Your wedding ceremony location can be booked for a maximum of three hours. You need to submit an application at least eight weeks before the ceremony. Applications can be accepted up to 12 months in advance.
It may take up to 30 business days from assessment to decision once all supporting documents have been provided.
If you wish to undertake other wedding activities in addition to the ceremony or you require a booking longer than three hours you will need to apply for a public place activity permit.
Choose from our most popular wedding locations, or contact Council about using another location on (07) 3205 0555.
