Rustic wedding venues in South Australia are located in a flour mill, wharf shed, stone chalet, and winery.
Leonard’s Mill, a restored flour mill, is complemented by a vegetable garden and fruit trees. Wedding ceremonies take place on the mill’s grounds and receptions are held in a function area that features a stone floor and walls as well as an open beamed ceiling. The cellar door showcases wines from the Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island. Accommodation is provided in two semi-detached cottages that are nestled in the garden.
One Paddock Currency Creek Winery is home to a restored shed from the Port Adelaide Wharfs. Its corrugated iron walls and exposed beams are easily decorated for a wedding reception. Guests enjoy pre-dinner drinks in the Barrage room, which flows into the main function space. The Refectory Room is a smaller space that is filled with natural light. An enormous old gum tree, with views over the vines to the hills beyond, provides a romantic backdrop for a wedding ceremony. Accommodation is available in six guest villas.
Utopia @ Waterfall Gully, a restaurant that is located in a century-old, heritage listed stone chalet, is located at the base of a spectacular 18-metre waterfall. The venue hosts wedding ceremonies in the conservation park gardens, sun-filled atrium, or beside the heritage fireplace in the chalet. Receptions are held in the chalet’s main dining room, which features soaring timber ceilings, exposed art nouveau stained beams, and original tongue-and-groove wall panelling. Couples have exclusive use of the chalet for their wedding celebration.
The Winehouse is a cellar door and function center that specialises in weddings. A vintage-style barrel room with limestone walls adjoins a cobblestone courtyard which opens out to a huge open lawn area. Couples are welcome to have a marquee-style reception instead of using the indoor function area. Wedding ceremonies take place under a large old river red gum tree.
Rustic wedding venues in South Australia enhance a wedding celebration with a bucolic countryside atmosphere.
