The Ceremony

Woodland + Wildflower Weddings provides a selection of sites on our property for wedding ceremonies. 
Choose from a field of wildflowers and grasses, or amongst the natural forest. Walk beyond a garden gate and down a grassy isle to give yourself to your one and only.  Say “I do” under a big, bright country sky and an adorned wedding arch in the presence of your closest family and friends.
We offer bench seating for the ceremony along with wooden cross-back chairs for  front row guests. 
A complementary outdoor refreshment area is available immediately following the ceremony for your guests to enjoy while photographs are being taken. 
We have a play park for the children and an outdoor area for the guest to partake in a variety of outdoor games.
We will have you covered if Mother Nature decides to add a little moisture to your day with a gorgeous white-topped marquee ceremony tent. 
Prior to the ceremony the entire main floor of our unique residence is provided for the wedding party's use with separate spaces for the bride and groom.   
The bride and her squad can enjoy ample space in a relaxing atmosphere to drink bubbly, dress at their leisure and get full-on glam!
Additionally, there is a sports lounge for the groom and his best mates to prepare for the ceremony and enjoy a few cocktails.

The Reception

Your reception will take place under a combination of three big, white Marquee tents with cascading Edison lights, solid wood harvest tables and wooden, 

cross-back chairs. 


We have a variety of vintage furniture to decorate the space as well as a cozy Bell tent for your guests to lounge in. 


Our giant naked tipi is all lit up and is perfect for that first dance as newlyweds.


We include a rustic podium complete with microphone so those memorable toasts and speeches can be heard by all.


Our unique outdoor bar is staffed with two bartenders ready to serve up all your fav cocktails. In order to cut down on waste we have even stocked the bar with eco-friendly, compostable cups. 


Our super user-friendly sound system allows you to play the music of your choice all night long!


Dance to your heart's content on our large, wooden dance floor under the soft glow of twinkle lights. 


Once the sun sets the area surrounding the reception tents turns magical with thousands of twinkling lights illuminating  the surrounding forest.



The Florals + Decor

From painted chandeliers and twinkling lights hanging from trees, to photos of you in a suspended wreath made of branches, ribbons and flowers – if you can dream it, we can make it happen. 
We design your wedding floral needs from of our own, sustainably sourced wildflowers and ornamental grasses as well as from our onsite, eco-friendly, cut-flower garden.  Some of our favourite homegrown flowers include peonies, delphiniums, anemones, ranunculus, lilies and even succulents.
We are hunters and gatherers! Continually hunting for unique and trendy decor items and gathering goodies to add to our vast collection. Vintage, Modern, Bohemian, Rustic or Natural, sparkly, rusty, mossy or lacey,  you name and we likely have it. If we don't, we shall do our best to find it allowing us to curate the wedding of your dreams!

We have you covered throughout the weekend assisting you and your guests to make your celebration as enjoyable and  memorable as possible.
