Questions and Answers

We are looking for a venue where we can style our wedding ourselves but are a bit nervous that it will be too overwhelming. Do you have a stylist/planner who can help?

Seclusions Blue Mountains

Russ & Malynda each have over ten years in the wedding industry and are here to help throughout your planning stages. Then either us or one of our experienced wedding crew will co-ordinate your day with assistance from your vendors & MC. 

We also design your table layout and supply wedding day run sheet templates.

Once your booking is confirmed couples are provided with our list of recommended suppliers, who you can select from if you wish. This will all assist with ensuring your planning and day runs seamlessly.

Are we able to bring our own alcohol?

Seclusions Blue Mountains

Yes, we are a byo venue. In saying this all alcohol is supplied by the couple and is served from "Emily" our vintage caravan bar (you can however arrange silver service with your caterers) guests are not permitted to bring their own. We can pass on details of our local bottle shop who can help arrange your drinks (keeping an eye out for when they are on sale). They will also buy back unopened boxes/cartons.

Bar staff are required to hold current RSA certificates & P/L insurance (this will generally be from/covered by the caterer).

Do you have noise level/time restrictions?

Seclusions Blue Mountains

We are boardered by a pine plantation and grazing paddocks, so no we don't have noise level restrictions. However we do ask that the music is kept at a level that is comfy for everyone's enjoyment. Final song/dance takes place between 10:30-10:40pm with all guests not staying in the cabins having left by 11pm.

The majority of our couples start their ceremony allowing between 6-8hrs celebration time, which from their feed back is more than enough time to enjoy their special occasion whilst allowing some quality time together at the end of the night.

We are from outside the area as are the majority of our guests, were can they stay and how do our family and friends get safely too and from our wedding?

Seclusions Blue Mountains

We work closely with several of the local hotels, once you book your wedding we pass on their contact details and they can help arrange a bus to transport your guests. This way everyone arrives together, has a great time and leaves together arriving safely back at their hotel. Taxis are also another option to transport guests & we have capacity for 30 cars not including your vendors in the venue parking.

Fur Babies

Seclusions Blue Mountains

Seclusions was, basically, the catalyst for our getting married. We had always known we wanted to be together forever, but it was our midweek romantic stay at Seclusions that showed us where and how we wanted to get married. It was everything we could have dreamed. Pictures of the venue speak for themselves, the location is stunning, and the Seclusions team become like family. Being a DIY venue you really get to go your own way and make your wedding look and feel exactly as you wish. On the day, Russ and Malynda take care of details I didn't know, and honestly still probably don't know, needed to be dealt with. I was sceptical about the whole "best day of your life" thing, but our wedding truly was, and a huge part of that is because we had it at Seclusions.

Where do I even start?! Russ and Malynda - you guys are absolutely incredible and made our day just perfect. Your venue is spectacular and you guys were so helpful! I would strongly recommend this dynamic duo and their fantastic team. Just book them. Don't overthink it! They will make your day absolutely perfect. Having looked around a few different spots in the Blue Mountains area, we are so grateful we chose Seclusions. Start to finish, the weekend was really special and one we'll cherish forever. Can't wait to come back for our anniversary!

Seclusions is a stunning venue made all the better by the warm, friendly team they have on site to assist with your wedding. Russell and Malynda go above and beyond to ensure your day runs smoothly—they enjoyed a well deserved break over our weekend, so we were handled with the utmost care by Merryn, Laura and Lauren, who were absolute superstars as well. We made the best possible choice by having our wedding at Seclusions.

Perfect venue for a perfect day. The owners are super communicative and help lower any wedding stress. Having the cabins to come back to in the future to celebrate our special day for many years to come is such an incredible touch.

As we were travelling from Sydney for our wedding, the team at Seclusions was wonderful. They helped us in the lead up and were absolutely invaluable at the time and throughout our ceremony and reception. We were getting married and staying at the venue and couldn't recommend their property high enough.

6 Apr 2019

We were very satisfied. Such a beautiful perfect venue and professional people as helps. So much choices and possibilities. As organising venues it was so good not to have to worry about the weather of wedding day because the venue can choose inside and outside. And long time available to use for fully enjoying your wedding day.

16 Feb 2019

Malynda and Russ were awesome. They helped with all the little things and made our special day run smoothly. Additionally, the beautiful view at Seclusions was a big hit with all our guests.

AMAZING VENUE - SO BEAUTIFUL. The hosts are super friendly, great communication and genuinely want your wedding to be perfect. We were so happy with our venue choice!

21 Sep 2018

Malynda, Russell, Tom and Julie were exceptional from day one. Taking care of such a big property and providing all the small details is a massive endeavour and they do it effortlessly. They were on hand for any assistance or questions that we needed, both in the lead up and on the big day. The venue was presented beautifully, the cabins welcoming and the location just stunning. Thank you all for your help in making our day so special.

24 Apr 2018

Absolutely brilliant, really beautiful! The view was spectacular. Tom and Julie just went above and beyond and were so accommodating.

27 Oct 2017

Our wedding at seclusions was lovely. Tom and Julie were so helpful throughout the whole process and helped to make our wedding day special and relaxed. The venue is beautiful and relaxed, exactly what we were after!

15 Sep 2017

This venue is filled with beauty inside and out! Tom and Julie go above and beyond to take away all the stress of the big day. Tom is a reassuring presence throughout the day and I knew I could rely on him for anything! This venue has EVERYTHING you need! Tom is constantly adding improvements. They even have a mothers room. The barn area looks amazing when set up. If you are looking for a rustic semi DIY venue with two kind, helpful owners who want your day to be as special as you imagine then look no further then Seclusions. It really was the perfect day. Thank you so much. Lots of love from myself and Steve xx

A beautiful venue that really does live up to its name. Tom and Julie were nothing but a pleasure to deal with and nothing was an inconvenience for them. If you a looking for a venue to accommodate both ceremony and reception with stunning views, look no further.

21 Apr 2017

Seclusions is just amazing. We celebrated our wedding here on the 22nd of April this year and it was everything we hoped for and more! It is a beautiful wedding venue as well as a beautiful place to stay. The views are spectacular and the cabins are very cosy and comfortable. Tom and Julie were absolutely fantastic during the lead up to our big day and even more helpful on the day before, day of and day after our wedding. They were always around to give us a hand, answer any questions, do whatever we needed or asked about during the setting up our wedding. We cannot recommend or rate Tom, Julie and Seclusions highly enough! Thank you so much!
