The newly-built chapel is surrounded by sweeping vineyards and features large double wooden doors, handcrafted timber trusses, high ceilings, and a rustic chandelier. If you prefer the outdoors, you can also choose to have your wedding ceremony in the gardens or down by the vineyard with the jetty and pond in the background.

The award-winning Restaurant Cuvée is housed within the property’s main sandstone building and is the perfect location for your Hunter Valley wedding reception, with its exposed timber beams and picturesque vineyard views. Another reception venue option at Peterson House is the stunning vineyard marquee, which features delicate draping, elegant chandeliers, fairy lights, clear walls, and beautiful hardwood flooring.

When it comes to wedding photography, there are a number of beautiful wedding photo locations onsite at Peterson House. You might choose to take your photos amongst the vines, in the charming cottage gardens, or on the small jetty overlooking the property’s picturesque pond.

Eloise and the team were so accommodating. The venue is amazing and the food is great. Thank you for coordinating and helping us with all our queries. Ceremony and reception all in one place!

10 Aug 2019

Every email we sent they always had a reply, and every question I had they would answer so quickly! They were excellent, and everyone kept saying over the night the food was so good! The alcohol service during the speeches were non-stop, and all the wait staff were so prepared and organised which was perfect! It was a beautiful wedding, to this day everyone is still talking about it and I still think of that day!

Wow, what can I say about holding our wedding at Peterson House? From the start of our planning until the end of our event, they were absolutely fabulous. Not only is the venue stunning (along with the amazing new sandstone chapel), the staff are just incredible. They went above and beyond to make our day the best of our lives. They were helpful, flexible and invested and liaised wonderfully with our other suppliers. Eloise, Beth and all of the staff at Peterson House are superstars. Their professionalism, care and assistance was beyond our expectations of a wedding venue. Not only that, the food and wine is amazing! I wouldn't hesitate recommending Peterson House to anyone currently planning their wedding!

Peterson House was a blank canvas for our wedding, they do have an inhouse wedding coordinator team but allowed us to work with our planners to create a bespoke style. The food is absolutely delicious and that is what sold us . The venue has a BEAUTIFUL non denomination chapel which we converted to a catholic ceremony and the acoustic and lighting is phenomenal. The new bar addition is great for post-ceremony canapés and drinks and there is also the option to use their restaurant. We used the marquee due to numbers and space and it was simply exquisite and devine. Beautiful Venue in the Hunter.

Was an amazing venue even during winter time. The marquee has a nice backdrop with plenty of space and light.

Peterson House was absolutely amazing! They were so hopefully, they definitely went above and beyond! I didn’t have a wedding stylist so I bought all my decorations and they were so happy to set them up for me. The food was so tasty, 5 star restaurant quality food and the venue is breathtaking!

Peterson House have been a fantastic venue to deal with so far. The venue is so beautiful & the chapel is such a lovely place for a ceremony.

12 Apr 2022

Fantastic venue, everything was so professional and ran smoothly. Eloise was incredible to work with and made the process so easygoing. Venue is absolutely breathtaking and the photos came out amazing.

25 Mar 2022

We had a fantastic experience every step of the way. Eloise was completely transparent with pricing and always replied to my emails in a reasonable time frame. We had planned a ceremony on the grounds but rain looked like it was set to stay. Eloise and the team were on the front for organising wet weather plans and we couldn't have been happier. It did not put a dampener on our day at all (pun intended). All of our questions were answered, and I generally do ask a lot. I would highly recommend Peterson House as a wedding venue, lunch stop, and wine tasting experience. We had a fantastic experience in each of these areas. Thank you team. Very happy couple.

3 Feb 2022

Absolutely beautiful. And the team made our day run so smooth! Was absolutely perfect! Food was amazing and the wine was raved about from everyone in attendance!

1 Feb 2022

Eloise and Issy were fantastic to work with - very prompt replies via email and super flexible with changes (postponed wedding date, guest numbers, menu changes). On the day, Luke couldn’t have been more attentive and regularly checked in with us to make sure everything was exactly what we wanted. He was also super calm and had a plan B when the weather changed unexpectedly. All our guests kept commenting on how beautiful the venue was, and we couldn’t have agreed more!

My husband and I would absolutely recommend Peterson House as a wedding venue. The venue itself is stunning and offers a variety of options for both onsite ceremonies and receptions. We ended up getting married in the onsite chapel and then flipped the chapel for our reception which was a fun surprise for our guests. We also loved the look of the venue's marquee but decided to flip the chapel for a more intimate and romantic look. Eloise and the team at Peterson House were also an absolute delight to work with both in the lead up to our wedding and on the day of. I am normally a bit of a control freak but I had complete trust in Eloise as she is super organised and knows exactly what she is doing. We honestly felt so well looked after and would 100% recommend Peterson House.

What a special place to get married to the love of my life! Peterson House has everything you need for an amazing day - onsite chapel, three amazing reception venues, beautiful landscape for photos, delicious food and amazing wines! We fell in love with the sandstone chapel and house when researching it online, and in person it did not disappoint! We only looked at one place in the Hunter (Peterson House) and knew we didn't have to look any further. The wedding coordinators Eloise and Isadora were so easy to work with, no question was left unanswered and I felt so chill on our wedding day, knowing that it would run smoothly when them in control. Would highly recommend this venue for anyone getting married in the Hunter
