Old Oval Estate was the perfect venue for our small wedding of approximately 45 guests. We had our ceremony under the beautiful big gum tree out the back, in a secluded area surrounded by shiraz vines. We then wandered up the lawn with our guests to the back pavilion for a relaxed, sit‑down buffet BBQ reception (we hired caterers to come and cook the BBQ). The pavilion was the perfect size for our four long trestle tables, plus a space for speeches/dancefloor (we hired speakers and made our own playlist). The venue is also wheelchair-friendly, which we needed it to be. The garden, the vines and the rolling hills in the distance are beautiful, so we didn’t need much by way of decorations – we used flowers and tissue paper pom-poms. We also had a lawn game for guests set up in the garden. We had our bridal portraits and family photos taken at the venue. There were plenty of areas to use as different backdrops, and the photos came out beautifully. Joan was a great host, even letting us come and set up the day before. She is friendly, organised, professional, flexible and accommodating. Her wines were great as well! We are very thankful to Joan for helping to make our wedding a very special, memorable day.
