Fernbank Farm – Wyong Creek

Wow! This place has it all across 25 acres of stunning gardens situated in the gorgeous Yarramalong Valley. They have a permanent on-site marquee and accommodation for the whole family in two beautiful homes. One house styled modern country and the other a gorgeous heritage beauty fully restored. This is used for the bridal party and makes for the most beautiful backdrop for your getting ready photos! They cater for small elopements to large scale wedding celebrations. There are multiple choices for your ceremony location including by the beautiful lake or under the stunning timber arbour that is covered in purple wisteria blooms during spring. Fernbank Farm also offers horse and carriage services and wet weather back up options for a unique and stress free experience.  The gardens are in full bloom during spring, my favourite time of year there which makes for beautiful Insta-worthy photos.

Glenworth Valley – Peats Ridge

Definitely up there as one of my all-time favs! Glenworth has it all. A 3000-acre property located near Peats Ridge on the Central Coast. The property has every-thing from open green paddocks, lush rain forests with gorgeous rock formations and a crystal-clear river running through the property. The Valley Events centre can hold weddings up to 300 guests. There are multiple ceremony locations to choose from including; the stunning lookout at the top of the hill, outside the events centre or across the creek in one of the big open paddocks. There is accommodation on site in perfectly positioned eco cabins scattered around the property for complete privacy. Your guests can also hire glamping tents or bringing along their own setup. My absolute favourite part of Glenworth is the running of the horses that happens every afternoon at 5pm which makes for the most EPIC wedding photos ever! You can also have photos with Hilda the highland cow. Your biggest problem will be finding enough time to fit it all in.

Somersby Gardens – Somersby

This gorgeous property is located in Somersby just off the freeway. The grounds are set against the Australian bush and beautifully landscaped with stunning Australian natives. There is a huge 7-bedroom house onsite that is so big both the bride and groom can get ready under the one roof at either end of the house. There is also a pool to cool off for those hot summer wedding days. With such a large garden they offer multiple sites for your ceremony but my favourite is the outdoor amphitheatre. Somersby Falls is just down the road for some stunning shots and if  you have enough time, you MUST head out to the rock ledge for some breathtaking sunset photos. Well worth the short 4wd trip which they will supply.
