Whatever the season the garden provides an elegant stage for taking your vows with a variety of formal and informal backdrops for the photographs that will record the great day.

Nestled on a hill overlooking historic Berrima, Harper’s Mansion, built around 1835, can cater for small to medium-size (maximum 100) garden wedding ceremonies. The garden offers privacy and space for your guests to wander and enjoy the seasonal displays and the largest maze in the state is a wonderful attraction for younger guests.
