Our garden began in 1998 with initial planting taking up a paddock below the house. Today the garden has consumed all 4 paddocks and continues to grow and evolve. The garden is best defined as a series of rooms linked by meandering pathways. Walking through the garden you will be amazed and surprised by what lies around the corner. Extensive use of local materials has created unique structures and features including our signature limestone terraced amphitheatre enabling us to host concerts and theatre events.
Large country garden.
For the last 5 years, I have been hosting weddings in my garden wedding venue and I love it! I am passionate about doing everything possible to ensure you have the day you dreamed of. I work with you to get a clear understanding of what you want to achieve on your special day and then my focus becomes making it happen.
I will remove the stress and do all your sourcing, setting up and cleaning, which means all you need to do is enjoy. You and your bridesmaids can relax the night before and enjoy a spa, with complimentary bubbles.
The next morning there is no need to go anywhere …you can be pampered right here with the hair and make-up professionals coming to you!
My most important role is to ensure everything runs smoothly. When you walk down to your ceremony you can be sure everything will have been taken care of from start to finish. Honeymoon Suite $300. Vouchers are available on request
