Adelaide Zoo's Nocturnal House is currently closed for maintenance.

Your wedding is always going to be unforgettable day, but when you and your special guests are immersed in the wonderful sights and sounds of the zoo it becomes a truly unique experience. The feathered and furry friends of the Adelaide Zoo would be delighted to join you in celebrating your special day.

Choose from one of our many stunning garden ceremony locations situated among magnificent botanic surroundings.  Or for something truly special, hold your wedding ceremony at one of our undercover locations within the Zoo. Perhaps you would like our gorgeous Giant Pandas, Wang Wang and Fu Ni to witness your special day?  As the only Giant Pandas in the Southern Hemisphere they would love to be on your guest list!

Guests can relax and enjoy the sights and sounds on a guided zoo tour or at one of the animal experiences available while the bridal party explores the zoo to discover the most unique locations to capture their wedding day photos.
