My husband and I are big wine lovers and wanted to get married at a winery. Shadowfax delivered our dream and more. The day was perfect. The ceremony on the lawn followed up by an amazing reception. Food and drinks were fantastic and Renee and the team were great and helped make our day magical. All our guests loved it and those that haven't been to Shadowfax before are coming back again.

I had my wedding here last Saturday and it was absolutely amazing. The staff, the food, the services, the vibe. Everything was perfect! Matt, Renee and Vanessa had helped planning my wedding schedule down to the T and have been so helpful and flexible along the way. It is a stunning boutique venue with a sophisticated edge to it - crossing between rustic and modern vibe. Totally recommended!!

Our wedding was so amazing with this venue! Matt and Natasha were so helpful and accommodating with everything. The cocktail reception was awesome- there was so much food going around. The venue is just beautiful and it was great being able to utilise indoors and outdoors. You won’t be disappointed!

Shadowfax Winery made mine and my wife's wedding run so smoothly. Our family and friends loved the garden ceremony as well as the food and wine. Special shout out to Natasha for setup and overall organisation of the day - we couldn't have done it without you!
