One of the Hunter Valleys finest wedding venues, The Woodhouse is a purpose built architecturally designed space for weddings and events. There is simply nothing like it in the Hunter Valley. An elegant timber building with a rustic but refined European elegance to it. Think soaring 7m ceilings, 4m windows, freestanding fireplace, bar, huge outdoor undercover dancefloor/lounge area, outdoor firepit with integrated lounge seating and entertaining courtyard.
The Woodhouse is fitted out with a 12 speaker commercial sound and PA system with musicians able to plug straight into it. The Woodhouse itself is approved for up to 150 people for either sit down or canape style weddings or event. Wedding guests will enjoy the delicious flavours of food created by our exclusive caterers Tess and James from Fennel & Co ensuring that your guests will rave about the food for years to come, with service second to none.
Every detail has been well thought out from the Robert Gordon black pottery plateware to the huge custom made 3.6m steel window behind the fireplace to the bespoke bar. There are a variety of beverage packages and options to suits all tastes from BYO (charges apply) to by consumption and 5 hour packages. Our wine list specialises in Hunter Valley wines (naturally) and with a few out of towners. The Woodhouse has DA imposed closing time of 11.30pm at which time all music must be turned off. Sunday events have an imposed closing time of 10pm due to licensing restrictions.
What you can expect – Only the best.

Our purpose-built, architecturally designed building sits on 100 acres of private property along with The Barnstay, our self-contained accommodation for you and up to 15 of your closest guests to stay in while you’re here. We are a unique wedding venue catering to couples who want the very best on their special day. Not all wedding venues are the same and what each can offer can vary enormously. Here are a few things to consider when picking your perfect wedding venue in the Hunter Valley.
Do you need the flexibility to tailor your day your way?
- Hunter Valley weddings are very popular and a lot of venues may host multiple ceremonies on any given day. That means that you may be restricted on times and the flow of your event which may mean you need to compromise on elements of your wedding.
- Having the flexibility to plan your day your way is one of the things that we pride ourselves on at The Woodhouse as our couples have exclusive use of the property with no set times or restrictions.
 The only restrictions are the 11.30pm event finish time and couples musicians must use our speaker system.
How important is privacy for your wedding?
If you are after a destination wedding, it is important to consider if you have to share your day with anyone else. Does the venue have multiple ceremony or reception spaces that you may need to share the property with that you had not thought about? At The Woodhouse, our couples have exclusive access and as such have total privacy to celebrate this special day.
Do you need accommodation on site for your wedding party?
If you are thinking about a destination wedding, such as a Hunter Valley wedding, a key consideration is if your wedding venue provides on-site accommodation. This can be a very useful feature as it allows the bridal party to stay on site and get ready for the big day without stressing about transportation to the venue.
Are you after the ceremony, post ceremony and reception to be in the one place?
There is a lot to be said for selecting a wedding venue where your guests can stay and relax from the start right through to the end of the night. If you are planning a Hunter Valley wedding ask the venue if they can host the ceremony as well as post ceremony drinks and the reception. While you are off having your photos taken, your guests don’t need to travel and can relax and enjoy themselves at the venue.
