About This Venue
STAY ~ PLAY ~ RUN AWAY
We’re here to make the magic and the memories, without the stress or expense.
Our all-onsite, all-inclusive elopement packages include everything you need for your special day and our Dream Team consists of the very best vendors the Hunter Valley has to offer. Get hitched just the two of you or with up to 20 guests by your side at our stunning retreat nestled high in the mountains above Pokolbin.
Our peaceful and picturesque country property is located in Mount View, the jewel of the Hunter Valley wine-growing region, and our ceremonies take place on our stunning pondside pavilion overlooking the waterlilies and set amongst a breathtakingly beautiful backdrop of open pastures, native flora and fauna and unparalleled mountain views.
We offer 4 incredible packages to suit all vibes, budgets and preferences; our basic Gumnut, standard Sweet Pea, deluxe Wild Rose and premium King Protea packages, with package prices starting at as little as $3295.
Our packages include your celebrant, photographer, videographer, cake, florals, and hair and make-up services direct from our A-Team of the Hunter Valley and Newcastle’s very best vendors and suppliers. Additionally, our packages include ceremony venue, set up, styling, onsite accommodation and your very own personal elopement planner and onsite coordinator to organise and oversee every single aspect of your day – plus a wide range of extras and add-on options, all in one neat little package. And that’s just the beginning!
Quite simply, we do it all. We handle all vendor bookings, paperwork and communications, place all necessary orders with your suppliers, finalise all vendor invoices and payments, as well as creating timelines, checklists and your itinerary for the day, resulting in a completely stress-free experience and leaving you free to focus on what matters most – each other.
We can accommodate the newlyweds for an intimate mini-moon, or up to 12 guests across our two onsite accommodation options; our cosy, intimate Cottage and our larger, rustic Homestead.
While we are of course happy to marry you any time of day, we are sunset ceremony specialists. As well as being the most romantic time of day, this enables us to make the most of the gorgeous golden light in the lead up to dusk, resulting in the most beautiful images and fairytale memories of your special day, that you will treasure for a lifetime.
Our elopement packages are available midweek only (Monday-Thursday), excluding public holidays and our peak Christmas/New Years period. This enables us to ensure availability and offer the very best vendors and services that the Hunter Valley region has to offer, at a fraction of the usual cost.
Our packages are ceremony-based only and we do not allow receptions at the property, however we can provide our Nibbles + Bubbles service post-ceremony while your guests mingle, as well as a comprehensive list of recommendations for local pubs and restaurants, should you wish to kick on with your guests and enjoy a relaxing meal or an informal reception dinner afterwards.
So do your day, your way. Simply rock up with your rings and we’ll take care of the rest! X
