Our Lawns

Your outdoor ceremony will take place on one of our lawns and afterwards, your guests can mingle and enjoy drinks and canapés while our staff look after them and you have your photos taken.

Vineyard Grounds

Capture your wedding day photo shoot in magnificent surrounds, perhaps some in the vines or down by the lake with the totems. There are many areas you can use to create a diverse range of images to tell the story of your day.

The Cellars

The formalities are over . . . you are married and it is time to relax with your guests and celebrate. The Cellars, on the ground floor of the four level gravity fed winery, is built into the hillside with a ‘living roof’ of tussock and is distinctive in its architectural design.

The room will be transformed by our team, according to your wishes with crisp white linen on the tables and your own decorations. You will have access to the ‘Secret Tasting Room’ during the evening, a favourite for photos.

"We are now back in London, and it all seems like a dream. You really are amazing and how you keep it altogether – we have no idea.
150 guests and not one hitch – it all ran so smoothly due to your beautiful coordination with
the planning before hand and on the day. Thank you!!"

"Doug and I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you and your wonderful staff for helping to create Jo’s dream wedding. She often said how amazing you were to deal with... how friendly, helpful, fun yet very professional you were. We were so happy they chose Woollaston as their venue as it is so stunning and picturesque. On October 20th it was so perfect. THANK YOU. We now look back with wonderful memories and know Jo and Mike were so happy. The photos so far look amazing. THANK YOU for all your organising and planning. Cheers and Good Luck. Hope we get to enjoy another event organised by you at Woollaston soon. We will be recommending you to all."
