The Lower Courtyard
The largest of the spaces is the Lower Courtyard which can comfortably accommodate a marque on the paving. With space for up to 140 guests for a sit-down meal and 200 guests for a cocktail event.

The Main Level
For medium size wedding celebrations, the Main Level is a versatile space. The partition dividing Dining Room’s 1 & 2 can be opened to create a larger space for exclusive use of the whole main floor and balcony. Polished wood floors, light interiors and elegant French doors flood the room with tons of natural light and as we know ‘natural light’ are the words that all Perth wedding photographers want to hear! The main level has capacity for 30 guests for a sit-down meal and 70 for a drink’s reception.
The Rose Garden
The Rose Garden can accommodate 100 guests for a sit-down meal, or 150 for a drink’s reception. This brick paved area is bordered by manicured gardens, white Iceberg roses and climbing figs. Again, it can accommodate a marquee as well has having ample room for a dancefloor and/or band. As a Lamont’s Bishop House wedding photographer, I love the backdrop of the surrounded high rises that make an interesting backdrop in my images.
