"From the moment we met the function coordinator and were shown the venue, we fell in love! Communication leading up to the day was quick, and every question was answered promptly. The wedding day itself was magical — the food was amazing, the bar staff were fantastic, and so many guests commented on how amazing the venue was! I would highly recommend St Francis as a wedding destination." - Lauren G.

May 2023

St Francis were an absolute dream to work with. They were flexible, friendly, communicative, organised and enthusiastic about our wedding day. They made every accommodation they possibly could and understood our vision for our special celebration. Not only that, but the venue was made to look absolutely spectacular with lights and vines and splashes of gorgeous colour. The food was also a real stand out. Many of our guests kept continuously commenting on how delicious and generous the portions were. And the dance floor was a great size for our wedding. We couldn't recommend St Francis enough!


February 2023

St Francis Winery were the perfect one stop shop venue for our wedding. We had everything there from accommodation, ceremony, photography and reception. The gardens were beautiful and very well maintained with the duck pond, complete with ducks and a wishing well. The food was five star.. big serves and delicious! The old school barn was perfect once decorated. Everything was within walking distance. The accommodation (Bridal suite) was fantastic with comfortable bed and the grassed area outside accommodation with tables was a perfect spot to relax and have a few drinks.

St Francis Winery ticked all our boxes from the get go but the lovely Linda definitely helped us decide the venue was for us. She was ever so helpful from 2 years away when we booked the venue to the day. From the millions of questions and emails and all the reassuring words then following us around on the day making sure we have had something to drink and eat and to make sure everything was going to plan. The food was to die for! The guests are still raving on about how good the food was and that they didn't need to drop into maccas on the way home. It's the perfect venue to customise and make your own.

Do I need security at my venue?

Do most venues provide this or do I need to look around? I don't know if I need it, but we have a large group (210) so I wanted to know if that means I need it? Also what is the ratio of security to guests?

St Francis Winery Resort

Hi Kyle

We have one security person at our venue but we sometimes bring in more security if numbers of guests attending are a very large amount.
