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 majestic 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.
Two private suites 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.
The increasing popularity of hiring the Manor for weddings and functions means that we have guests staying most weekends. We respect our guests' privacy and so request that you please phone through to arrange a private tour when the Manor is vacant. That will also give us the opportunity to show you around and make sure you don't miss any of the hidden gems!
Yes, we love people who put their special touches on the wedding!
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.
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.
Our two bottom rooms have linen and are decked out for your stay, this includes furnished rooms with queen beds, and a bottle of Adelaide Hills sparkling wine for the bridal suite.
We have linen sets available for hire for additional guests (advanced notice required), or you may encourage them to bring their own if they plan to stay.
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.
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.
"Woodhouse was the most perfect place to have our wedding, in every single moment. The location was perfect, and the freedom we had to create the space in our own way was perfect. People keep telling us it was the best and most joyful wedding they've been to, so thank you big time for being a huge part of that!" Lauren + Liam
"The beautiful garden was the ideal setting for the ceremony and the facilities are a credit to you all, making planning for the event so easy and flexible. For our friends to be able to stay the night and have breakfast with us, extended the surrealistic feeling over the two days." Mathew + Christel
"...we wanted our special ‘day’ to instead be a weekend long celebration. We had many family and friends travelling from interstate and overseas and the idea of trying to say “hello, thank you so much for coming” and hugging everyone enough, in only one evening, seemed unimaginable. ‘Old Woodhouse Manor’ at Woodhouse in the Adelaide Hills was large enough to fit all of our guests affordably, and was one big, beautiful colonial style building. The house and surrounding grounds felt like a secluded getaway complete with a creek, winding paths through the forest and an abundance of autumn trees." Narelle + Steve
"We had such an amazing experience at Woodhouse, it was truly magical and we can't recommend it highly enough! Our guests were blown away with the venue!" Etienne + Stephanie
"I was like a giddy school girl at Sean + Sarah’s wedding!!!! Everywhere I looked there was something to photograph. I don't think they could have chosen a more perfect location." Carly, Stirling Photography
We love that every wedding at Woodhouse is completely unique to the last. Check out how these beautiful couples made the space their own...
