Things to make you go ‘I do’.

VENUE FEATURE: Mansfield House

If you’ve ever felt like you’re living in the wrong era, this Hunter Valley wedding venue known as Mansfield House might just be your cup of English Breakfast. Built in 1887, it’s a fancy, Gatsby-esque space with multiple rooms and a stunning garden (which by the way, is pet-friendly).  As an added bonus, it’s all-inclusive which means rather than unpacking furniture and counting cutlery you can be kicking back and enjoying the finer things in life.

We asked the team to share some more info about the property so you can get better acquainted.

Hey team. Can you tell us a bit about Mansfield House?

Mansfield House was built in 1887 by the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney. No expense was spared by the company in building their finest regional head bank. Its grandeur and lavish design were built to impress.

Now restored to its original and stunning condition, opulent and exquisite features create a perfect space for weddings. Mansfield has many areas such as the Victorian Garden, The Grand Chamber, The Manager’s Office and many more which create a connected experience for our guests.
