SA Wedding Venues: Part 2

This week we are moving onto the Barossa Valley! There is certainly no shortage of beautiful wedding venues in this region; in fact, there are so many venues often the most classic and rustic ones can be forgotten about. My list of beautiful venues was long this week so I had to be brutal when narrowing them down. I cut the ones I am sure you have seen time and time again and decided on the venues that aren’t featured as much! So here you have them – Barossa’s finest wedding venues!

Grant Burge
Equally beautiful in Spring as it is in Autumn, the courtyard at Grant Burge wines always looks enchanting on a wedding day! The old stone walls and vine covered roof make you feel as though you could be at a destination wedding in Europe! The courtyard is often used as the location for ceremonies; however, it has hosted some elegant receptions as well. Take a look at their facebook page to see more!

Simply Stunning! This venue is so incredibility versatile! Firstly there are too many locations to have a beautiful ceremony I cannot list them all. Seppelsfield can cater for weddings with 10 guests to weddings with 500 guests. My favorite element to this venue is the gardens. They are never ending and I am sorry to have to say it again – so versatile!  I would love to attend a picnic wedding on the lawns here. Many of the essentials that are needed are already there, like picnic tables, ample shade under beautiful old trees, BBQ facilities, bar facilities, and clean toilets! Or if the picnic style is too casual you can have a full sit down in the ball room, or use the beautiful lawns to host a reception under a marquee. My best friend had her wedding reception here and it was fantastic. We enjoyed pre dinner drinks under fairy light lit big pine trees followed by a sit down dinner in a marquee (I have posted some of her beautiful photos below). If your wedding is in summer and you are expecting great weather, ditch the marquee all together and enjoy the stars!

Ok, so this venue is my personal favorite! I want to invite all my friends there one day for a party to enjoy the atmosphere of this unique winery/cellar door. It is truly rustic and run by a bunch of fun-loving people. Personally, I believe an autumn wedding would work best here. A time where the surrounding vines would be all shades of reds and orange and the smell of the toasty wood oven pizza would fill the air.

Pindarie was originally a sheep and cropping farm that eventually planted some grapes and opened a cellar door to sell their produce. The venue is located on the Western Ridge of the Barossa with views that can not be described as anything less than spectacular. They currently do not cater for weddings, but do how ever allow you to use the venue for intimate dinner parties. A small dinner party here might just in fact be the small reception you are looking for after an intimate ceremony. Take a look at their website for more!

Not exactly rustic, but certainly an extraordinary venue! This homestead built in 1856 has a magnificent eyre about it. The extensive gardens have played host to some beautiful weddings over the years. Like previous venues there are plenty of options when it comes to setting up a wedding reception here - depending on the weather. Check them out on facebook for some photos of recent weddings.
