The beauty, peace and quiet of Saumarez will surround you on your special occasion.
Synonymous with grace and style, the grounds, farms and Saumarez Function Centre can accommodate groups from 60 to 1600 in a truly Australian rural setting. Country Wedding = Saumarez Homestead
Saumarez Homestead is a unique country setting for wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions and wedding photos.
With glorious formal gardens surrounding the main homestead there are several beautiful options for outdoor wedding ceremonies and the Saumarez Centre, Jackson Centre or Stables provide great wet weather indoor alternatives.
The Jackson Centre – previously the heavy horse stables, carriage area and workshop – is the most popular indoor venue for wedding receptions with the more formal Saumarez Centre and the intimate Stables providing other options. There are also several powered sites for Marquees adjacent to the main homestead, Saumarez Centre and in the Farm Area.
Flexibility is the key to a great wedding ceremony and or reception venue. Saumarez Homestead has many options and the staff are only too willing to help couples explore and understand the many options.
With over 10 hectares of grounds including the formal gardens, Mary’s garden, the Heritage Rose Garden and the historic homestead and farm area with its collection of buildings of differing architecture as well as many rural vistas, Saumarez Homestead provides a dream canvas for wedding photographers to do their magic to capture every highlight of what is a very special day.
There are a few dates still available for weddings at Saumarez Homestead in the Spring of 2019, but they are filling fast.
In 2020, weddings at Saumarez Homestead will be even better than before.
During the winter of 2019, we will be refurbishing the Saumarez Centre and doubling the size of the commercial kitchen.
More exciting will be the developments in the Farm Area where we will be creating onsite luxurious accommodation for up to 40 guests plus a honeymoon suite hidden in among the elm trees. There will also be a separate private function room near the accommodation for activities such as indoor/outdoor barbecues and rehearsal dinners, hair and make-up and recovery brunches.
The Jackson Centre will also get an upgrade including its own kitchen and bar as well as new toilet facilities next door in the old brick Garage.
Upgraded facilities will bring on some price increases but all bookings confirmed for 2020 at current prices will be honoured.
All in all Saumarez Homestead is already a very popular wedding venue and this year’s improvements will make it a sought after country wedding experience. Book now.
