It's the weekend, and we have some fab venues for you to ponder in the Clare Valley - a region close to our heart! Unlike the Barossa or the Adelaide Hills the Clare Valley is that little bit further away from Adelaide, yet this is what makes it so charming.
How cool is this? Not only would getting married in a maze be totally original, it would allow you to use your imagination and do something utterly different, like; a circular aisle in the centre of the Maze, or a treasure hunt for your guests to find the location of the ceremony – tucked away in a corner of the garden. There are endless nooks and crannies in the Maze to have the ceremony location. Total capacity would be somewhere around 80 people (for guest comfort), but there is no limit! The maze also provides a setting for some really great photo ops, if you choose to have the ceremony somewhere else. The other great news – Pod & Pea are the exclusive stylists for this venue!
This places looks like something right out of France. I think my favourite part of this venue is the tree lined drive way, it looks absolutely spectacular in autumn. This venue is hidden amongst the vines and is totally understated – which adds to its charm. The garden provides the perfect spot for an outdoor wedding in summer, yet has plenty of room to set up a marquee and enjoy during winter!
This one is a popular one amongst the locals. If they don’t get married here, they make the trip to have their photos taken here… and when you see this place you understand why!
I’m making the call that this place could potentially be the most well equipped rustic wedding venue in SA!! Big call I know but here are the reasons why: The ‘home’ it’s self is just magnificent (everything you would expect a 1840’s homestead to look like), the garden is well established, there is an on-site church (St Michael’s Church) complete with ornate gates and hand painted windows. The venue offer wedding packages for both church weddings and garden weddings. Receptions can then be held in the shearing shed, or you can set up a marquee on the beautiful lawns!!! And to coat it all in sweet wedding sugar – you and your guest can all stay at the venue in the historic accommodation!!!
This place would be unheard of to most! It is situated in the privacy of rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves. The venue plays host to a long history and had been restored to compliment this tastefully, there is also an onsite chapel built in 1862 which overlooks the tree covered Skilly Hills. Pictures of this venue are limited due to the lack of publicity; however, I can guarantee that it is well worth a look if you are planning a country wedding!
