Venue Location and Nearby Accommodation
Thank you to the Dennarque Estate team,January 2017
"Thank you! It was such an incredible day and it was the perfect location for us, everyone commented on how stunning Dennarque is and we couldn't have pictured a more beautiful wedding spot!
What can we say about this venue that could possibly justify how amazing it is?,June 2017
"By far the most impressive estate in the Blue Mountains, with too many options for your wedding day. We couldn't decide between the giant tall tree garden, the waterfall, the Japanese gardens or the stunning conservatory. Unfortunately, the weather decided for us. The rain on our wedding day was torrential. We had the owners of the property helping us relocate to the conservatory before guests arrived, for me, this was a true testament to the welcoming character of the property and the pride and care the owners put into it.
With accommodation for 12 guests, our entire bridal party stayed on site which was so convenient for the weekend. The venue assisted with helping us choose an amazing catering team as well as a local florist who both went above and beyond. We would encourage everyone who is interested, to experience this place for themselves. Absolutely incredible. Thank you Dennarque, you are truly one of the world's great properties.
Ben and Mariana, Sydney"
