VENUES

We have the pleasure of partnering with some of the best wedding venues in SA. If you need help finding the perfect venue, don't hesitate to ask us.

Nestled at the edge of Kuitpo Forest, this divine stone building was built by the locals for the locals back in 1926. Our talented friend Jade has given it a breath of fresh air and brought it back to grandeur. With a huge range of hire equipment, Jade is conveniently known for being a skilled event manager and stylst with her company Mase Event Design. The hall with its grand high ceilings and polished timber floors provides a stunning blank canvas with which to style and, my oh my, there are so many ways you could not only style it but use it! The hall has a capacity of 100 but in creatively utilising the adjoining turfed lawn this capacity can be easily brought up to 200 or around 150 seated.

The wedstival venue! This beautiful 1890's barn was lovingly restored over a five year period by our friends Colin & Lee. Resurrecting from a dilapidated ruin to its present state allowed Colin & Lee to celebrate their own wedding and now share their incredible project with others. Through the ongoing use and preservation of built history they trust others can appreciate and enjoy not only Barn1890 but their Sea & Vines Cottage accommodation and wonderful 3 acre property. Get married under their giant eucalyptus tree, and continue on the reception at the beautifully renovated barn. The hosts are generous and helpful and the photo opportunities are incredible! 

Our very first time at Mandalay literally took our breath away. The most unique and luxurious wedding venue in the Adelaide Hills. Owner and manager Deb has thought of everything. Her stunning property its so versatile with numerous options for ceremonies and receptions.Breathtaking acres of stunning manicured and lush gardens, are framed by rolling countryside. Wether you are considering a formal marquee event for 200, a cocktail garden party for 100 or a country style barn wedding there is so much to choose from. Located just 45 minutes from Adelaide, Mandalay House & Garden offers is an inspiring and accommodating space for all styles of celebrations. 

With its stunning country garden setting and rustic warehouse style, Nether Hill Farm makes the perfect informal and flexible wedding venue or event space.  Set on over 35 acres, with an extensive country garden, rambling paths, secluded lawns and paddocks there are a range of options for photographs and endless possibilities for a wedding reception, ceremony & pre-dinner drinks.

Penny’s Hill is one of SA's most iconic wineries located in the centre of the McLaren Vale wine region between Willunga and McLaren Vale. For receptions, Penny’s Hill offers no less than three incredible options. Sit inside at The Kitchen Door with up to 80, pop up a Marquee outside for up to 200 guests or opt for our favourite - The Stables. Erected in the Late 1850’s to house the farm’s Clydesdale plowing team and built from stone, straw and mud, the building is ‘old rustic charm’ at its finest. It’s a space suitable for up to 120 seated guests and is an ideal year-round option. For ceremonies, there are multiple options around the property including their1850’s homestead which makes an incredible backdrop for photos. 

Just a 5-minute drive from McLaren Vale, this venue is tucked away nicely behind the gum-lined roads in the picturesque area known as The Range. Surrounded by vines with views stretching out across the stunning Mount Lofty Ranges, the space gives the feeling of space and calm. Offering an extensive lawn area and providing plenty of space for a large marquee (may we suggest the clean lines of a clear roof). Whatever your style, the simplicity of this setting will allow your vision to shine through. With the option to include their eco Kuitpo CABN accommodation as part of your package, there’s simply nothing left to do but dream of the day when you will say your I do’s.

The main room is open with floor to ceiling glass and sleek timber floorboards, comfortably seating 80 guests.
