"We had our wedding at Wandin and had a fantastic time. We could not recommend the venue highly enough as the staff were efficient and professional. We had 40 people stay with us for our weekend wedding and everyone had a fantastic time. The accommodation was lovely, the food was delicious and the wine was great. We will be back for a wine tasting in the future!" — Jackie N.

"Over the past ten years, I have photographed many weddings at Wandin Estate. It is a truly beautiful spot to host a wedding. The several outdoor ceremony options, the onsite accommodation for bridal party members & guests, it's pretty great! When it comes to photos, the olive grove at the top of the property is stunning. And is easily one of my favourite spots. Running parallel to this, the top vineyard with views of the mountains is one of the best views in the Hunter. I cannot wait to be back at Wandin soon for another wedding!" — Bryce N. 


There are two main reasons i came to Wandin. First and foremost is my love for helping people, for organising events, somewhere to unleash my need for things to be perfect. Secondly what better place to do the first then in one of the most picturesque estates in the Hunter Valley. There is no better way to spend your day then in Wandin Valley helping people create and organise the day of their dreams and watching couples come together as a married couple on their perfect day.

Yes, we welcome lunch time weddings however we only sell one wedding per day so you can extend until the early evening.

No you do not have to select a beverage package however there is a minimum spend per person for beverages charged on consumption. 

We require pre-selection of drinks to be available at your wedding.

The minimum spend is pre-paid and the balance of the bill is paid at the conclusion of your wedding with a credit card.

A benefit of choosing to have your wedding at Wandin is that you will be the only wedding on the estate. This means we are flexible with our start and finish times for the ceremony. The only restriction is that the reception must be concluded no later than midnight.

Wandin offers sample menus in our wedding kit for food and beverages as these change to ensure quality, seasonal produce and the current wine vintage.

We cater for sit down, cocktail and banquet style weddings depending on the number of guests and venue layout you require.

Mel from Wandin helped us plan such a magical day! We had our ceremony on Vineyard Hill and reception at the Cricketers Pavilion. Our bridal party and families stayed in the beautiful and spacious accommodation at Wandin. The food and wine was delicious and views are stunning throughout the winery! Thank you Mel, chef Tim and the Wandin team! I highly recommend Wandin for wedding events and accommodation.

What can you say about about the venue is everything we asked for. The scenery, the ambiance, the staff was so helpful, understanding and accommodating especially I got the opportunity to set up the reception room how I envisioned the room to look like. The staff worked with me and gave me some awesome feedback too. We had everything in the one place. From the time we as Bride, Groom and our family and friends were getting ready, till we had to say I do and enjoying our special event. The food was everything we tried at the tasting and we weren’t disappointed at all. Every last piece was eaten. Feedback from our family and friends was “it was the best wedding”. They said it was fun. Wandin Valley Estate is a beautiful venue because it was just natural and picturesque ❤️

We had the most wonderful experience at Wandin. Even through this crazy year we feel we had the most spectacular intimate wedding. Thank you to all the staff at Wandin. The ceremony location was stunning, the dinner set up in the cellar door was perfect, the food was exceptional and we still think about it, the alcohol was yummy, and the smile from every single staff really added to the warm energy of the day!

Wandin was an amazing wedding venue. Erin was amazing to work with to make our special day come together, up on Vineyard Hill with spectacular views over the Valley. The food and wine was delicious and enjoyed by everyone. The service was amazing and Erin liaised with all our suppliers and had the eye for all the finishing touches - An absolute dream of a day! We also booked out all the accommodation for guests as well - the villas were so lovely and really helped make a great party for the whole weekend having so many loved ones there with us.
