The outlook is beautiful, the location quiet, but still only 5 minutes from the main town center of Windsor. The spa on the deck is such a luxury, as are all the details that have gone into this home. I couldn’t think of a single thing missing from this home and cannot wait to stay again. Highly recommend! My family didn’t stop raving about it all weekend.” - Lara

Enjoy the serenity of the Australian countryside when you choose to host your wedding at this spectacular lakehouse. You are sure to love the venue, however, remember to have your wedding plan and guest numbers approved by the host prior to booking. The back garden that leads down to the lake could be elegantly set up for an outdoor ceremony.
If the host allows, a private chef could be hired to prepare dishes in the gourmet kitchen and the meal could be enjoyed out in the open or under the shade of an event tent. There is also an outdoor pool available all year.

If you are undecided between a farm wedding or a vineyard wedding, why not pick a place where you could opt for both?

Make sure to get in touch with the host before you make a booking to discuss wedding plans and any venue fees that might be applicable.

The property owners, Carol & Philip, were lovely - we had two meetings to sort out the details and they were flexible with all our needs. We were the first event to make use of the marquee. All of our guests raved about the grounds and marquee - it was the perfect backdrop and the sunset was amazing…” - Hayley Sweet

Secluded and private with breathtaking views is the best way to describe this 100-ac (40.47-ha) retreat. The retreat does not have any farm animals and is yours to enjoy, albeit for the kangaroos and wombats that drop by for a quick visit. The glorious outdoors offers numerous spaces where decorators can set up for the ceremony.

Testimonial: “We eloped at the Saanjh estate! My now husband and I wanted a private but meaningful ceremony in a relaxing location, and this stay was perfect. The hosts were lovely to deal with and shared in our excitement. Jasmine was kind enough to let us visit in advance and ensured the grounds were weeded and trimmed for our special day. We also had flexible check-in/out. There was a perfect spot overlooking the valley where we held our ceremony, and surrounding grounds were a picturesque and romantic backdrop for photos…” - Charles
