Within the grounds of Taronga Zoo lies a quite extraordinary venue, the Taronga Centre, with breathtaking views over the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge and of course, the Zoo itself. Imagine the photo opportunities from the rooftop, terrace or balcony spaces or choose the ballroom or restaurant where Epicure will host you with 30 to 350 wedding guests entertained in style, right in the Zoo grounds, with beautiful seasonal menus an added bonus. (Will sticky pork belly, peanut praline, kecap manis tempt you?). If you love animals and are looking for something a little different – think photographs with the giraffes or elephants in the background – this is the place for your perfect day!

We asked Jessica from Taronga Centre five questions in five minutes:

What is the most important piece of advice you can give to engaged couples?
The most important advice I can offer to all my clients is to be present in the moment. Sometimes, couples can get caught up in the finer details and not see the big picture that is their lovely day. Leave the hard work to us and enjoy your perfect day of celebration with loved ones.

Tell us about a hidden talent you have?
A hidden talent of Jessica at Taronga Centre is that she is secretly a handywoman – which has definitely assisted at a few weddings. Jess absolutely loves creating anything from tables and chairs to backyard sheds! For Jess, it’s a moment to enjoy some zen and be distracted, whilst still being creative!

As a vendor, what excites you about the wedding day?
Jess loves the hustle and bustle of the day – getting every little detail to perfection to create an event space that’s unique and personalised for each and every one of our clients.

What are you known for?
Jessica is known for her love of planning and creating events, from intimate small gatherings to large vivacious celebrations. She believes in going beyond the 5 star expectations for each and every client – setting her apart from the others. Jess truly believes in not just being a wedding co-ordinator but a friend as well.

If you could choose a song to play for the rest of your life what would it be?
Jessica is a sucker for some old classics, Can’t help falling in Love by Elvis Presley is a favourite and definitely a hit on the couple’s first dance song list.
