7 Beautiful Wollombi Wedding Venues
Wedding Photographer Hunter Valley
Are you planning a wedding and looking for a Wollombi wedding venue? Wollombi is one of my very favourite regions in the Hunter Valley. It is away from the touristy areas of the Hunter Valley and the wedding venues there are completely surrounded by nature, mountains, and the Australian bush. All the Hunter Valley wedding venues in Wollombi are very private and you will pretty much have the entire property to yourself in most cases. The small village town of Wollombi has some of the very best wedding venues anywhere and some of my own personal favourites.
There is also a nice variety of styles of venues to choose from. They are not all vineyard-style wedding venues. There is some Tuscan-inspired venues, forest venues, farm venues and even modern barn styles. Accommodation-wise, there are a lot of B&Bs, cottages, homesteads and farm stays to choose from in Wollombi. They don’t have the big chain hotels & resorts that Pokolbin does. So get your guests to stay somewhere with charm and character or the other option is to hire a bus at the end of the night to take them back to one of the bigger hotel chains.
So enjoy the list of our favourite Wollombi wedding venues and happy planning!
