We’re sharing the best NSW country wedding venues. For reference, these aren’t the kind of wedding venues that use hay bales and bunting as decoration, or mason jars as drinking vessels (RIP trend. You had your time).

These are unique properties that serve couples everything we love about Australia on a silver spoon (awe-inspiring natural landscapes and absolutely cracking food and wine), competing with big-smoke luxury (day spas, thoughtful styling, boutique accommodation and fine dining options).

If you’re drawn to the idea of a weekend-long wedding somewhere that allows you and your loved ones to enjoy the best of everything, you’re in the right place.

Rowlee Wines // Orange, NSW

Rowlee Wines is one of those “did I just teleport to the Italian countryside?” places. With lush, hedged lawns, rambling cottage gardens, fruit trees, an olive grove and endless rows of vines, it’s breathtakingly beautiful.  In addition to delicious alcoholic drinks, here you’ll find stunning ceremony and reception locations, seasonal menus and boutique accommodation for two on-site.

The Pavilion at Lowe // Mudgee, NSW

The next Corona commercial should take place here because there’s honestly nowhere you’d rather be. The Pavilion at Lowe is a postcard-worthy generational property in the charming region of Mudgee, with sweeping panoramic vineyard views and delicious food and wine that’s grown and produced on-site. The Pavilion itself is a Great Gatsby meets Django Unchained masterpiece featuring chandeliers, antique furniture and modern facilities (read: fully equipped kitchen, bathrooms, solid flooring, heating and cooling systems etc). Get hitched in the open-air ‘Bush Chapel’ and enjoy canapés from the vintage caravan bar. It’s worth seeing in the flesh.

And in terms of made-to-impress amenities, it’s got it all: a pool cabana, a purpose-built “barn”, luxurious accommodation (including a private library), a day spa, century-old silos (which have been transformed into modern cocktail lounge areas) and a pizza oven (to name just a few). Let’s not forget sweeping ocean views.

Domaine de Binet // Hunter Valley, NSW

This distinctively French-meets-Australia, family-owned Hunter Valley wedding venue is irresistibly charming. The signature icon of the property is an onsite open-air chapel (Chapel Mon Coeur) where couples can seal the deal beneath enormous white beams. The vineyard is positioned to take in the impressive Brokenback Ranges, which provide a dramatic backdrop against a pink sunset. Celebrate under the stars, pitch a marquee or enjoy some of the Hunter’s best wines while hosting a soiree at Domaine de Binet’s chic and relaxed cellar door space.

Mona Farm // Braidwood, NSW

Photos never do this place justice – it’s the kind of heart-exploding venue that’s best experienced first-hand. A modern farmhouse restaurant, creating unforgettable food is at the heart and soul of The Zin House. Most ingredients are grown on-site (the restaurant looks out over the surrounding kitchen gardens, orchards and grazing farmland) and anything that isn’t comes from a nearby neighbour. The sunsets and enormous outdoor hearth (fire) make cocktail hour particularly special here.
