Hunter Valley Gardens
From the elegance of the Formal Garden to the romance of the Lakes Walk Rotunda and the uniqueness of the Oriental Garden and pagoda, Hunter Valley Gardens has a plethora of possibilities to capture the magic of your wedding day.
“We both knew we wanted our wedding outdoors in the Hunter Valley. We live in Sydney and grew up on the Central Coast. Sydney felt too crowed and we didn’t think it would be relaxing and the Central Coast felt too much like home and not special. We had said I love you for the first time in the Hunter Valley, had attended a family wedding there, which we loved and had been on weekend getaways to the Hunter Valley. We just always knew we wanted to get married there.” Jess + Ben
