What is a DIY Wedding? 

You are essentially hiring a space, our beautiful blank canvas with amazing views to decorate into your perfect wedding venue. You can supply your own drinks and choose your own catering supplier giving you control over all aspects of your day.

After 15 years in the industry we realised that so many couples want the freedom to create their own day, so we decided to scrap all the set packages and give couples the freedom through our DIY wedding options.

You will be responsible for the set up and pack up of the wedding yourself (or we can do it for a fee), so this option is perfect for couples who don’t mind getting their hands dirty. We provide all couples with a list of our preferred suppliers so you’ll have a really great start in the planning process.

Our Space

Our bar and lounge, and adjoining alfresco is the perfect location for a relaxed country wedding. The alfresco has spectacular views over the lake, and guests are always blown away by the beauty of the location. The bar was renovated in 2019, and is beautifully styled with hand crafted timber dining tables, leather couches and modern finishes. Its a beautiful blank canvas for you to style into your perfect wedding venue.

We are an all weather venue, which huge blinds that can enclose our alfresco in the colder weather. Guests can still enjoy the magical views, as well as the cosy wood fire. Everything  you need for a fabulous wedding is all here and ready to go. From the commercial kitchen to the fully equipped bar… it is all here in one convenient location.
