The Scene At Joondalup Resort
Located in Connolly, Joondalup Resort is a suburban escape just a stone’s throw away from the sunset coast and several idyllic harbour towns. It’s also only a half-hour drive from Perth’s city centre, making it easy for local guests to access by road. Plus, there are 70 luxury guest rooms and suites on-site to accommodate invitees travelling from further afield.
Ceremonies typically take place in the Lakeview Parklands, with the resort’s lush golf course and cascading fountains providing the perfect backdrop for photos. You can even venture out onto the fairways in the resort’s motorised golf buggies to have further shots taken.
Afterwards, dinner and dancing take place in the nearby Function Centre with lakeside views and mood lighting to match your theme. Alternatively, the opulent Grand Ballroom with marble staircase has a more traditional feel, while the Poolside Marquee is airy and modern.
Whichever event space you choose, you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to style the room so it reflects your style, vision, and overall wedding theme. Dancefloors can also be added to accompany your live band or DJ, and fireworks can be arranged upon request.

We recently had the pleasure of having our wedding at Joondalup Resort. Sarah and the team were fantastic! We had the lakeside view room (The view was fantastic both during the day and night) with 165 people, and the space was incredible. Everyone had a wonderful time. The food was amazing, the staff were exceptional and catered to our needs. The hotel stay was fantastic too. The rooms were tidy, and the cleaning staff were very nice and worked around us too.
