Ruth, Al and the whole team were amazing! They all helped make our day so special. Myself and the bridesmaids stayed the night before the wedding in both the international suite and the Australiana suite and both rooms are stunning! We loved the cherry tree and the fairy lights on the tree over the room. So magical! The venue is stunning all of our guests say it’s the best wedding they have been to. Thank you Al Ru Farm! We will be back to stay on our anniversary 💗

We had our wedding at the Al Ru Farm on the 19th of May 2023, it was one of the best days of my life. Having the outdoor ceremony with an indoor reception was perfect for an evening wedding. The team (led by Cara and Mardi) were so lovely and extremely helpful any time I emailed them they would respond quickly with whatever my request was. Guests are still talking about the venue, great service and incredible food so thank you to the Al Ru Farm team for making our wedding day truly wonderful. It was a perfect day!

We got married here 5.3.21 and I can NOT fault this venue! From the day we fell in love with this magical venue, to the day we got married, the team have been so helpful, accommodating and personable! Ruth has done an incredible job ensuring the gardens look picture perfect all year round, and on our special day the guests couldn’t believe how luscious and perfect the gardens looked. The butterflies were out, the flowers blossomed and the perfect amount of shaded and sun areas! I spent our wedding eve in the on site cottage before hand, which made for perfect “getting ready photos”. The staff also think of all the small things like delivering fresh warm bread in the morning and treating you like royalty every visit. Can not recommend this venue enough! I’ll definitely be booking accommodation on our first wedding anniversary, any excuse to go back!

Nothing but great things to say about Al Ru. We both fell in love quickly with how beautiful the farm was, something very ‘homely’ about it. The girls where super quick to answer my 1000+ questions and were beyond amazing on the day and helped the team create our dream wedding. Ruth and the team has put an amazing amounts of work into the farm and everything down to all the flowers planted and the little details in the rooms did not go unnoticed. Thank you again.

Are there any things that aren't allowed in most venues?

Like, I know most you can't have confetti.. and some no glitter. But is there anything else I should be wary of?

Al Ru Farm

You will find most Garden Venues do not allow any type of Sprinkle - we allow real flower petals but nothing else. Glitter is also a big NO for most venues whether inside or out.
