Gretel Farm weddings

Simple and casual or formally elegant – Gretel Farm is a magic venue for that special event in your life.

There is no limit to the kind of wedding you can create on Gretel Farm, so stretch your wings and make your day unforgettable. You will have full use of the house and gardens while your wedding is booked, from check in 10 am on a Friday to check out 2 pm the following Monday (or any other combinations of days).

Wedding Isle with PetalsThe house and gardens can be decorated by you in any way you choose (no naked lights, please).

The level northern lawn is Gretel Farm’s location for marquee weddings. Catering is made easy as it is a few steps from the marquee to the northern verandah and the kitchen. The lawns surrounding the house are ideal for a cocktail-style wedding while the verandahs can hold up to 40 people for a sit-down meal.

Your wedding ceremony may take place in the gazebo or at other attractive locations on the property where photo opportunities abound for the bridal party.

Gretel Farm is connected to 3 phase power and there is ample space for a band or disco, marquee for up to 100 guests, catering tent, cool room and other facilities.
