Questions and Answers

Do you do venue viewings?

Fairlawn Estate

Oh yes of course! :-) 

 

These are traditionally subject to appointment and availability. As we offer private and exclusive accommodation, we respect our guest’s privacy and seclusion by attempting to not book viewings when we have active guests. 

 

The best way to arrange venue viewings at Fairlawn Estate is to make an appointment for a viewing during business hours during the week. We are available to weekend viewings. Although it is subject to our other bookings :-) 

I notice that you do not do in house catering. I don't know where to start when it comes to finding a caterer. Do you have anyone you can suggest?

Fairlawn Estate

Of course! The beauty of being in the South West of Western Australia is that we have so many fabulous chefs in the region. We can easily suggest a variety a caterers, meeting different price points and offerings, that would enhance your moments and memories.

We have even sampled their food too. :-) 

Can we supply our own alcohol?

Fairlawn Estate

Yes of course! You can cater to your own taste buds and not be locked in to any particular beveridge. We also know which local bottle shops that will allow you to return any unused stock.

 

Our only requirement is that there is no "self-service" at your wedding. All alcohol must be served by RSA trained staff. A good caterer usually has this enabled in their packages. :-)

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding venue than Fairlawn Estate. The grounds were perfect for hosting our reception and provided so many amazing photo opportunities - the driveway, orchard, paddocks, gardens... And the house itself just blew us away... So beautifully decorated and styled, we felt transported in time. Rebecca and Alex were also so welcoming and accomodating and made us feel at home for the weekend. So many of our guests told us that they felt so relaxed and comfortable, and I think that the homely nature of Fairlawn definitely contributed to that. I loved that Fairlawn did not feel commercial, and it was almost like you were hosting your wedding in your own backyard (if you were so lucky as to own such an amazing property!!). We would highly recommend Fairlawn as a wedding venue :) - Giorgia & Sam

Fairlawn Estate  

Giorgia & Sam. Thank you for your glowing words. It was an honour to be apart of your special moments and memories! Those are the exact feeling & emotions that we want all of our special guests to have. To read that you experienced a relaxed, personal and individual day brings a smile to our dials :-) Take care and stay safe Rebecca and Alexander Walker

Fairlawn Estate offered us everything that we could want in our wedding venue and more! The private Estate very comfortably (and luxuriously) accommodated our large family and the Homestead, surrounding gardens and paddocks offered us so many options for our ceremony and seated reception for our 90 guests. We were even able to have our pet dog make a star appearance in our ceremony, another must-have! With 2000 acres of property including manicured gardens, paddocks and the Vasse River banks we were spoilt for choice for photo locations without even needing to leave the property. Owners, Alex and Rebecca were so helpful both on the day and in the lead up; answering phone calls, emails, providing vendor suggestions along with unlimited site visits that allowed us to plan our dream wedding from 2.5 hours away. Fairlawn Estate, and Alex and Rebecca, very easily became a special place in our hearts.

Awwwwww... Stevie! You're words are too kind. Let's be honest... Winston was the cutest "star" appearance of the day. Make sure Winston is not a stranger at Fairlawn :-)

Fairlawn Estate is an absolutely beautiful location for a wedding, we loved everything about our stay and wedding here. The accommodation is luxurious, comfortable and has everything required. We were spoilt for choice in the many stunningly manicured garden areas bosting beautiful views of the landscape. We had both our ceremony and reception at Fairlawn which made for a relaxing, easy day. The staff at Fairlawn are lovely, going above and beyond to make sure we had everything we could have needed and to ensure the lawns, gardens and property in general were up to a 5 star standard. Whenever there was an issue we were kept unaware as Alex made sure it was handled efficiently, calmly and professionally. We would not have changed a thing about our wedding and we strongly credit this to Fairlawn Estate.

Fairlawn Estate  

Thank you so much for your kind words. :-) We look forward to hosting you and your family again when you come down south on your next holiday!

Wow! What a location. We had the perfect day here, the house and the gardens are just stunning and so many nice spots we didn’t feel we did it justice. Alex and Rebecca were great in making us feel welcome and did everything to help our day run smoothly. You can literally make this place your own. Highly recommended. Thank you Alex and Rebecca, we’re so glad we came across your property.

Fairlawn Estate  

Thank you Dale & Jade. It was a pleasure to host you both, along with Astro! We look forward to hosting your growing family on your many trips down South for years to come.

Fairlawn Estate was the most beautiful venue for our Elopement back in October. So many magical spots for photos and the natural lighting at sunset was perfect! Our hosts were incredible too, they were kind enough to offer the use of their childrens scooters to my children which was very much appreciated. Highly recommend Fairlawn Estate

We had a fantastic time at Fairlawn Estate. The venue was much more than we've expected for our intimate wedding of 12 guests, from the background view of the lawn to the facilities the Estate offers. Our wedding wouldn't have been so smooth and memorable without Alex's and Rebecca's help. Should you be planning for your reception or ceremony or even your honeymoon trip, Fairlawn is just the perfect venue. We still miss the little cows which gathered around at the back of our ceremony, the vintage pianos we got to play at night, and the 5-star bedrooms we got to stay after our big day. All of our family and friends had an equally good memory as we had, and we feel so privileged to have added another page to the long history of Fairlawn. Highly recommended if you are looking for somewhere relaxed but special.

Fairlawn estate was the perfect location for our elopement. The farm is breathtaking and there is a unique view around every corner, which makes it perfect for photos. The rich history of the farm adds to the character to the house and it’s very easy to feel at home and relaxed. Rebecca and Alex were more than accommodating during our stay and were amazing hosts. Absolutely perfect!

Fairlawn Estate  

Awww... Thanks Heather. :-) It was delightful hosting Rowan, yourself and both sets of parents. You guys looked absolutely sensational in your photo's. Hopefully you are able to stay with us on your anniversary! Take care and stay safe. :-)

My husband and I had our wedding at this venue last year and it was perfect. We had 120 guests in a marquee set up outside, and we didn't need many decorations because the venue itself is beautiful. Anyone thinking of having a wedding in the South West should definitely have it at Fairlawn.

Fairlawn Estate  

Why thank you for the praise Bianca! It was a pleasure hosting yourself and Justin for your special moment and memory. We loved your day that much, we have featured some of your photo's in our profile. :-)
