Questions and Answers

What time can I have my On-Site Ceremony?

Maximilian's Adelaide Hills

We standardly offer a 4:00pm, 4:30pm or 5:00pm ceremony in peak months.  In June, July or August we will offer a 3:30 or 4:00pm on-site ceremony time to co-operate with less daylight for photos.

Do you offer Ceremony only?

Sorry no.  We only host 1 wedding an afternoon and we reserve the ceremony site for the couple that are having their reception with us regardless of if they choose to use it initially or not. 

How early can my suppliers come to set up in the morning of the wedding?

The on-site ceremony is an unlocked area, your suppliers may come as early as they like. 

The reception area will have tables set-up, unlocked and available for your stylist, florist or any other suppliers to access from 10:30am on the morning of the wedding.  We usually ask that they have finihsed setting up and cleaning up any set-up mess before your guests arrive as it is an open space and not shut-off to guests when they arrive.
