Anyone who knows us knows we love Waldara and have been quite the fan for a while. This NSW country wedding venue features a working sheep and cattle farm and is just an hour past the Blue Mountains.
Featuring plenty of accommodation onsite, including two beautiful homesteads, this venue has an onsite tennis court, a gorgeous reception barn with modern amenities and views for days.

Hey Bec and Dave, what was it about Waldara Farm that made you book?
Driving up the to the property we instantly felt a connection to Waldara Farm. Having looked at numerous similar venues, Waldara had something different. With the perfect aesthetic, friendly venue manager and the exact facilities we were after, we couldn’t fault it. By the time we left we already had a very clear picture in our mind of how the big day was going to unfold.
Did you write your own vows? If so, what made you decide to do that?
Yes. There is literally no better occasion to be truly honest and open about our love for one another than at your wedding in front of all of our friends and family. Knowing we had written personal vows for each other also created a sense of mystery on the day as we obviously didn’t know what the other was going to say and as you do so much planning together, it’s nice to have a surprise or two along the way! We also found that the effort that goes into getting the vows perfect really puts the meaning of the day in perspective.
What’s your best piece of wedding-related advice?
Enjoy every moment and bask in all of the happiness and love that surrounds you during this time – from engagement right through to the big day. Planning is just so important, not everything will be perfect, but get the extra quotes, read the extra article to make sure you create an event that is perfect for YOU. All the hard work will be worth it!
If you had your time again, is there anything you’d do differently?
We got our alcohol order almost perfect but were surprised to see how quickly the champagne went! Less wine and more champagne if it’s a spring/summer wedding!
