This super funky casual space with a beautiful back garden is a great pick for budget-friendly pockets. They don’t only offer a beautiful view surrounded by nature but also great quality food.

Wallalong House

Wallalong House

A beautiful old historic mansion to stay in, with a dreamy permanent marquee that has a marble floor and pool that are to die for. This place is the Instagrammer dream just 2 hours north of Sydney.

Mindaribba House

Mindaribba House

Beautiful, large old and historic accommodation. Weddings are held in the stunning main dining room. There is extra accommodation on the same site for the extended family. Their permanent caterers make the yummiest, high-end wedding food.

Tocal Homestead

Tocal Homestead

Home to another beautiful mansion (the Hunter is known for them), Tocal has a purpose-built barn for weddings. This is no ordinary barn, it is modern and gorgeous and brings a modern edge to a country wedding feel surrounded by nature just a couple of hours away from the busy Sydney.


Definitely one of the premium wedding destinations in the Hunter Valley. Margan’s offers the iconic vineyard-wedding experience. The ‘Barrel Room’ for sit down dining makes an epic vineyard vibe. Their food is really top-notch and their gardens and extra party space are lovely. A great destination for larger groups.

So you can’t have the wedding you want unless you know what you want, right?

And even if you THINK you know what that is, it’s unlikely that you and your partner have really, truly uncovered it (because it’s usually hidden beneath a whole lot of confusing opinions, rules, fears and worries).

So we thought it might help if we showed you how uncover what perfect means to you (the results may surprise you!), help you to create your very own, personalised wedding ‘blueprint’,  and then get you on track to actually making it happen.

We had the most amazing time! It went so smoothly and everything was just as we had imagined! 
Dad even thanked you in his speech!

One of the BEST decisions I have made in this whole wedding planning process, hands down.  All of my guests were raving about how carefully, thoughtfully and uniquely planned my wedding was.

Your kind, consultative approach and talent for design and coordination is nothing short of phenomenal and was pivotal to the success of our day.

We didn't have to worry about anything except getting ourselves ready on the day - she really helped make sure everything went off without a hitch
