North Sydney Council allows free wedding ceremonies for less than 60 people in ‘passive’ parks or less than 30 people in bushland reserves. Numbers above this will require a permit and they have a number of conditions when using the parks and reserves. Wendy Whiteley’s Secret Garden cannot be used for free and you must get a permit, regardless of size.

The North Sydney Council area includes the suburbs of Cammeray, Cremorne, Cremorne Point, Crows Nest, Kirribilli, Kurraba Point, Lavender Bay, McMahons Point, Milsons Point, Neutral Bay, North Sydney, St Leonards (part), Waverton and Wollstonecraft.
