Venture into the 54 hectare property, over the bridge and through gum-tree studded countryside to find your own private wedding retreat at Old Woodhouse Manor - the Crown Jewel of Piccadilly. This two story, heritage listed mansion is destined to provide the perfect backdrop or venue for a very special and unique ceremony.
Stroll through the secret garden in the shade of century old Magnolia trees, explore the rugged paths that lead to the gurgling waterfall and regale in the paved courtyard; the sociable hub of your celebrations. It’s here that you’ll say ‘I do’. It’s the place you’ll share your first sip of champagne as a married couple. It’s the area to which you’ll return to mingle with friends and family as day fades into night and twinkling stars begin to peek through the majestical canopy.
Hidden staircases, wide verandas, colonial gardens and pine-tree forests are a photographer’s dream and your Wedding at Woodhouse will allow you to capture the many varied landscapes without ever leaving your party.
A private bridal suite on the ground floor of the Manor and group accommodation upstairs is included in the package, perhaps for interstate guests or those looking to keep the party going. Just imagine waking up with your nearest and dearest to share stories of your special day.
There is a large car park providing ample spaces for guests. Cars may be left overnight, at the owner’s risk, for collection the next morning by 10.00am. Coaches can drop off and collect guests; please confirm the drop-off and collection points with the Events Team.
Yes. There is a ramp for wheelchairs and an accessible toilet.
Many couples book classical musicians to provide music during the ceremony. However pre-recorded music is also popular. There are many power sockets located around the venue to plug in a mini sound system or MP3 player or you can bring a CD/MP3 player to play.
After 11pm the music and dancing should move through to the ball room to minimise the impact on our environment and our neighbours!
Natural or organic confetti, e.g. dried flower petals, is permitted.
Please do not use paper confetti.
As long as you let us know what and where we are happy to accept deliveries on your behalf.
To avoid an additional cleaning fee, we simply ask that you leave the building and its surrounding grounds in the same condition you found it. A professional clean and inspection will be completed after check out.
Sure! You can book your guests into any of our activities such as Challenge Hill if you want to add the thrill of adventure to your big day!
Our two bottom rooms have linen and are decked out for your stay, this includes furnished rooms with queen beds, coffee and tea making facilities and a bottle of Adelaide Hills sparkling wine for the bridal suite.
They weren’t big on indoor plumbing or en-suites in the 1860’s and as Old Woodhouse Manor is Heritage listed we have been able to provide you with shared bathroom facilities. We hope that you enjoy the rustic charm.
We are pretty proud of the old girl so we would welcome the opportunity to show you around, that way you won’t miss any of the hidden gems! Please contact us to arrange a private tour.
Yes, we love people who put their special touches on the wedding!
