    We couldn't be happier with the experience we had at Rivendell for our wedding. From the beginning Celia was incredibly friendly and helpful, happy to answer any questions and give us as much detail as possible. Lush, abundant gardens with stunning flowers and trees, beautifully manicured and taken care of made the venue irresistible! We held our ceremony in the shaded garden with a natural existing arbour - zero decor was required as the natural landscape was just so beautiful. Our reception took place on the grassed area using all Yallingup Event Hire teepees and furniture - so easy having one supplier manage everything on site. Delicious wine, fantastic staff and all for a superb price. Even better that the estate can house all your guests with just a short walk. Lastly, a dog friendly venue was perfect for our border collie to be part of the celebrations. HIGHLY recommend!!

    Celia and the entire Rivendell Team absolutely made our wedding the most special amazing day. From the moment we engaged Celia she made us feel so welcome and the whole planning process was a breeze. To be able to have our friends and family stay on the property made the venue one perfect spot to host our wedding. Leading up to the day Celia was so accommodating with any questions we had and never made us feel like we were asking silly questions. On the day Celia and her team were absolutely amazing, the day ran so smoothly and this was due to their amazing efforts. We would recommend Rivendell a million times over, thank you so much for allowing us to celebrate our special day with you Celia!

    My husband Te Rangimarie and I had the most beautiful wedding at Rivendell Winery. It was the perfect spot for what we envisioned, from the lush green lawn, the beautifully kept gardens and spaciousness of the grounds to the Villas dotted around the Winery to accommodate our family & guests for the weekend. Celia and Darryn were both very warm welcoming and went above and beyond to ensure our special day was everything we wanted it to be. Their team that worked behind the bar throughout the day & evening were very attentive to our guests and the grazing table provided for the brunch the next day was perfect.

    I cant thank enough everyone who was involved with our wedding at Rivendell Sept 2023. This venue and management exceeded our expectations. Celia and her team where so professional, friendly and calm which was so comforting when nerves are running high at a wedding. The whole day was just so perfect and I cannot recommend Rivendell enough. Hands down the best wedding venue with exceptional management. Thank you! Ashlee xx

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Rivendell in November 2021. Celia was very helpful willing to answer any questions we had from the moment we walked through the cellar door to first look at the venue to the day after the wedding when a few of our team went passed to pack up the final things. The gardens at Rivendell are stunning and provide many beautiful locations for photos to be taken on site. We had our ceremony in the secret garden, post ceremony refreshments and nibbles on the lawn and our reception inside.
