About This Venue
The Stables of Somersby is a boutique wedding venue situated just north of Sydney in the picturesque hinterland of the NSW Central Coast. This lovingly repurposed rustic barn is located on a private equestrian property offering the perfect rural retreat for your dream wedding. Surrounded by sprawling lawns, a spectacular dam with boathouse and jetty and framed by magnificent natural bushland, The Stables provides a multitude of stunning ceremony, reception and photo locations.
The Stables is perfectly positioned within an hour of both Sydney and Newcastle and a mere 30 minutes from Terrigal and Wahroonga, making it the ideal rustic wedding destination. Whether you are a DIY couple or choose to bring your own wedding stylist to help with your more elaborate vision, The Stables is the perfect canvas, allowing every couple the freedom to create their own personalised wedding celebration that will be treasured forever.
Exclusive use of the barn and surrounding grounds are yours, with numerous options for ceremony, reception and photos – at The Stables you are limited only by your imagination. We offer Midweek Day Wedding & Elopement packages in addition to our Evening Weekend package.
• The Barn – offering our custom recycled timber trestle tables, beautiful bamboo wedding chairs, built in vintage bar area, two luxurious toilets, catering room, stunning chandeliers and fairy lights.
• The North Lawn & Rustic Pavilion – a magical undercover space with fairy lights and festoons included.
• The Rustic Arbour ‘Wisteria Walk’
• The South Lawn overlooking the spectacular Dam
• The Jetty and Boathouse
• Under one of our stunning trees, or anywhere else you may choose.
The Stables offers complete flexibility and importantly, hassle free wet weather options if necessary. You may decide to have your ceremony simply under our beautiful tree, canapés and drinks on the lawn and your reception in The Barn, or perhaps your dream is a candlelit barn ceremony, canapés and drinks in the Rustic Pavilion and a long dinner table under fairy lights in the Arbour Wisteria Walk?
Our beautiful rustic outdoor Pavilion offers a huge undercover area of over 100 square metres and is perfect for afternoon canapés or grazing after your ceremony with room for an outdoor bar set-up, acoustic musicians and casual seating. It is also the perfect stress free Plan B for a wet weather ceremony if needed. The extensive lawns surrounding the pavilion allow for a multitude of options with ample space for lawn games and mingling in the sunshine.
We offer the perfect place to pamper and prepare for your special day. Stables couples have exclusive use of The Loft on their wedding day, a simply stunning retreat located directly above The Barn. The Loft provides a tranquil and relaxed environment for our bride or groom, their attendants and family to prepare for the ceremony and a romantic haven for the newlyweds to spend their wedding night.
Our beautiful & character filled, original Farm Cottage is available to hire as the perfect additional accommodation option on the property for family, bridal party or friends for your wedding at The Stables. Featuring 3 lovely Queen bedrooms, 2 beautiful bathrooms, a huge TV/games room with additional accommodation options, a slow combustion fire and billiard table. There is also a stunning, rustic outdoor entertaining space with vine covered pergola, bbq and stone pizza oven.
The Stables is also proud to include the services of our in-house Venue/Wedding Coordinator. Included is a one hour Introductory meeting ahead of your wedding day and ‘On the Day’ Coordination. This will assist with any last minute details you require on the day and throughout the evening, liaising with your suppliers and making sure everything runs smoothly, ensuring you and your family are free to relax and enjoy every minute of your day. It is also possible to book in for additional hours or services for those who feel they need more extensive Wedding Planning and Coordination service in the months leading up to the wedding.

Owner / Manager
Having been lucky enough to live on this lovely property for the past 17 years raising a family and breeding horses, Louise and her family have spent the last 6 years creating this beautiful rustic barn together. Originally built to house farm machinery, horse feed and stables, it has now been lovingly repurposed into a beautiful venue space full of rustic appeal with attention to every detail.
With a background in interiors and styling and a long history of collecting beautiful things (often rusty!), The Stables creates a warm, relaxed and stunning atmosphere that truly reflects the love and passion that has gone in to creating it.
We are now loving sharing this wonderful space with our couples and their families, making beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.
