Weddings at 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


Hunter Valley Gardens understand the importance of ensuring your special day is nothing less than perfect. Their naturally beautiful grounds provide an abundance of stunning locations with beautiful outlooks and leafy garden aspects to say your ‘I do’s’.

Choose from an idyllic outdoor wedding in one of many locations throughout the gardens, or enjoy the air conditioned comfort of their chapel that overlooks the scenic Lakes Walk and gardens. Hunter Valley Gardens is a unique destination unlike any other in Australia.


Within Hunter Valley Gardens lies the Garden Terrace, a blissful location for your post-ceremony celebrations. This versatile reception space lends itself nicely to theming and seats up to 120 people. The space also boasts amazing views of the Oriental Garden, where guests can enjoy pre-dinner drinks
and canapés.

For a first dance like no other, experience the enchanting open-air amphitheatre in the Gardens. Illuminated with fairy lights, this is a memorable moment for newlyweds.

Hunter Valley Gardens can also organise a Garden Marquee wedding set up in the European styled Formal Garden and seating up to 200 people. Guests can walk straight from your ceremony, through the stunning gardens and into the reception marquee.

Lawn games can be organised to entertain your loved ones while you are whisked away for photos. Marquee weddings are a beautiful alternative and allow you to customise the look and feel of the venue as you please.


Hunter Valley Gardens offers an array of stunning photography locations within their ten internationally themed display gardens. Spaces include beautiful structures, statues and murals as well an abundance of seasonal blooms which prove a uniquely beautiful backdrop for your photographer to capture your special day.

All photography packages include a buggy to take you to every corner of the oasis and if you book a ceremony or reception, the photography package is included free of charge!

Group Information

What is the minimum number of people you will pick up?

There is no minimum restriction to book so singles and couples can book tours, but there is a minimum number of people needed to run tours effectively.

We do our best to make sure every tour runs, which sometimes means shuffling minimum numbers together so tours can operate.

We need to group together at least  4 people (minimum number shown on each tour) for it to operate.

Do you take parties like a 40th or 50th?

Yes. A day tour with your friends enjoying drinks and tasty food is one of the most enjoyable but hassle free ways to celebrate a birthday. We take care of the details and let us know if you would like something extra special too!

What size groups can you cater too?

Each tour vehicle contains passengers from multiple bookings until it is filled to the ‘maximum guest limit’ (shown on each tour). This limit keeps our group small so it’s fast and fun with premium access.

A tour will operate when a minimum of four seats are booked. If there are only four seats booked, great you will have the tour all to yourselves in one of our smaller vehicles. The more a tour fills up, the bigger the vehicle we use until our maximum guest limit for that tour is reached.

If you would like a completely private tour for two, or, have a larger group than the ‘maximum guest limit’ please contact us for options.

We can cater to larger groups by combining multiple vehicles for any tour.
