We got married at Ginninderry Homestead on the 12th October 2019. Everything was perfect. Amelia was amazing to deal with in the lead up to the wedding, helping keep our minds at ease. The venue is spectacular, the gardens are gorgeous and the views incredible. It's easy to see the love and devotion put into Ginninderry Homestead. Plenty of great food options and being able to bring our own alcohol helped keep the cost down. On the day of the wedding, Amelia and the team did everything they could to help us. During the evening, we didn't have to worry about the bar or the food or tidying up because they had it all under control. The next morning everything had already been packed away for us so we just had to pack the cars. The accommodation was great and made the weekend very enjoyable. The breakfast was ready waiting for us both mornings and it was the perfect amount to food to get us up and going! The Homestead itself has a wonderful feel to it, lovely photos, antique furniture and while you're there you feel like you are taking a step back in time. Thank you so much Amelia, Sue and the team for helping make our weekend so perfect.

It was beautiful there. They checked on me during the day making sure I was happy with everything. They helped with last minute touches in the set up. It all went really smoothly and the staff were really helpful on the night! W also stayed the night before and the night of the wedding. The accommodation was great, we had Continental breakfast provided, which was quite relaxing. Everything was in the one place and made everything very easy!

From the moment my husband and I stepped foot onto Ginninderry Homestead, we knew we’d found the venue we wanted for our wedding. The grounds are magnificent and fitted with the rustic country estate vibe that we were going for. Also the fact that you book the entire venue from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning, with enough accommodation on site for the bridal party meant that set-up and logistics was an absolute breeze – we were able to do a ceremony rehearsal on site on the Friday and set up random bits and pieces for the reception. Sharon and Amelia were wonderful to work with both in the lead up and during the event – no question or request was too much and communication was excellent throughout. Sharon became like our fairy godmother in the lead up, we had a few last-minute unanticipated changes and she did everything in her power to make sure everything was perfect for us. The food was also incredible, and we had so many compliments afterwards from guests saying that it was the best food they’d ever had at a wedding! Thank you so much to Sharon and her team for making our day truly magical – we would highly recommend Ginninderry Homestead as a venue for any function, but particularly for weddings, it’s a magical place that needs to be seen and experienced first-hand!

We had the most magical wedding day in December 2021 at Ginninderry Homestead. The property itself is so stunningly beautiful, myself and our guests were in awe. We had access to the property from the Friday afternoon before our wedding, which allowed myself and my bridemaids to stay and getting ready on site - this made the experience extra special. The food was delicious and could not be faulted. The staff on the day were amazing, professional and friendly. The wedding coordinators, shout out to Sharon and Amelia, worked along side you to make your day what ever you envisioned. Sharon was wonderful, and was quick to respond to my (many) emails. Our dream wedding was able to come to life and I will forever be grateful to the team at Ginninderry, it truly was the best day of our lives. With love from Katie & Jacob.

Ginninderry Homestead  

Thank you SO much for your beautiful words Katie and Jacob! You were truly a beautiful couple and it was my pleasure to work with you both to make your wedding day dreams come true! Your day was fun and elegant and a true reflection of your love! Thank you for choosing Ginninderry and we absolutely loved hosting your special day! Best wishes for your future together! Sharon, Amelia and the Ginninderry Team.

My husband and I got married at Ginninderry Homestead last week and we couldn't have been happier with our choice of venue. The staff were incredible throughout the entire process of us planning our wedding right to the end of our stay. The food was fantastic, the accommodation couldn't have been more comfortable and everything went off without a hitch on the day of our wedding thanks to how organised and professional the staff were. The only issue we noticed was a large majority of our guests had trouble finding the venue, as Google Maps took them to a location a short distance away from the entrance to Ginninderry Park. If we were to do things again, we would put a sign or balloons out the front of the driveway so guests wouldn't get lost.

Ginninderry Homestead is the most beautiful place to have your wedding. The house is stunning and filled with character and comfy beds, and surrounded by gorgeous lush gardens and lawns, a creek down below, and picturesque spots for photos everywhere you look. It was so nice to be able to stay in one place for the whole day, to have our rehearsal the night before, stay overnight, get ready with the bridal party the next day, walk out the doors to the ceremony, followed by lawn games and photos, and a beautiful evening with delicious dinner and decent sized meal portions that all of our guests enjoyed. We had the most amazing day in October and Amelia and her team at Ginninderry were so lovely work with. They made our whole wedding planning experience (especially during Covid times) incredibly stress free and easy and we are so grateful!

Ginninderry Homestead  

Thank you for your kind words Alyssa! It was such a pleasure to work with yourself and Cam – you are such a lovely couple and your wedding was a true reflection of all of the hard work and planning that you put into it. Your day was fun, elegant and a wonderful celebration. Thank you for choosing to celebrate your special day at Ginninderry. Wishing you many years of happiness and joy, Amelia + our amazing team xx

The staff that run the Ginninderry Homestead are simply amazing. Super great communication, very friendly and helpful which makes planning your big day such a breeze. The location is stunning and the reception hall is the perfect clean slate to decorate however you like. The ONLY thing I could possibly complain about was that the bed in our room was a bit hard but that's personal preference. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this location as a wedding venue and accommodation.

Ginninderry Homestead  

Thank you SO much Jessa - you were the most amazing bride and I thoroughly enjoyed working with both of you to make your wedding day dreams come true! You would have the be the most organised bride in Ginninderry history, a big tick for you! Thank you for choosing Ginninderry to celebrate your special day. Thank you also for the feedback on the bed, it is very much appreciated and noted. All the best and we look forward to keeping in touch. Amelia + Team
