OVERVIEW

Located in the heart of Avon Valley, a mere 90-minute drive from Perth, Buckland Estate is a historic and picturesque venue perfect for a romantic country wedding. With exclusive use of the entire property, your guests will love exploring the rolling hills and heritage farm land. Choose from an all-inclusive offering or a budget-friendly ‘plan your own’ option depending on your wedding needs.

Established in 1836, this heritage farm and homestead houses a stately Victorian Georgian manor and two cottages. For an unforgettable rural destination wedding experience, Buckland Estate offers accommodation options that are as comfortable as they are beautiful. In addition to the grand manor and cosy cottages, Buckland Estate offers glamping and camping options and ample parking space for all your guests. 

With incredible photo opportunities at every turn, Buckland Estate offers your choice of ceremony and reception location. Why not wed beside the lakeside for a laid-back, natural sense of serenity. On the other hand, if old-world glamour is your style, the manor makes the perfect backdrop — why not opt for a horse and carriage entrance to complete the picture. Whichever your selection, you’ll be put at ease by the dedicated and professional team waiting to welcome your guests. 

You and your partner can prepare for your celebration with your respective wedding parties in separate dressing rooms, perfect for “getting ready” photos you will cherish forever. Other thoughtful features include a private formal photography room and multiple furniture options available for your use. Buckland Estate offers a boutique, relaxed, and personalised offering, allowing you the freedom to plan your wedding the way you’ve envisioned.  

 

“We attended a wedding at Buckland estate this weekend, and it was one of the best weddings we have ever been to! The venue is stunning, with beautiful scenery and rolling hills that seem to go on forever! From the moment we arrived, Russell and his team made us feel welcome and were so accommodating. The glamping tents were so cool and very comfortable. There were so many wonderful things that I’m not sure which was my favourite? From eating ice cream on the lush green lawns while the autumn sun hung low in the sky behind us or having dinner under the stars? It was all awesome, just a magical place to visit! We will definitely be back!” — Misty E.

“What a wedding venue! We had our wedding at Buckland Estate over the weekend and couldn’t have asked for a better venue. Buckland offers so much more than just the golden paddocks, beautiful homestead building and wedding barn (which give you the perfect backdrop for great photos). We had our guests stay over the weekend across the cottages, homestead, camping ground and glamping tents. The set-up Russell and his team have created allowed us to celebrate into the night and enjoy each other’s company the following day. Russell and Di were an absolute breeze to deal with, and we had such a stress-free lead-up to the wedding. On the weekend itself, nothing was too difficult for any of the awesome staff who accommodated every request (Russell even let us use his tractor for the ceremony!). We were able to have our dream wedding, and Buckland Estate was a huge part of that. I could not recommend this venue more.” — Andrew C.

Buckland Estate is an incredible venue for a wedding! My husband and I just celebrated our one year wedding anniversary. And we have many fond memories of our special day. We met with Russell to look at the venue, he was friendly, honest and accomodating. We had a good feeling from the moment we got out of the car, but after meeting the staff and seeing the grounds we knew this was our place. Dianne was fantastic to discuss plans over with and went above and beyond to help us out, understanding it can be a stressful time organising such a big party. The accomodation was great, sleeping all of our family comfortably for two nights, we were even allowed to have our dog stay in our cottage as she was part of our bridal party. Buckland were able to supply all of our furniture for a reasonable cost for the night. We had the big beautiful wedding we wanted with all of our friends and family at such a stunning venue, Buckland Estate. We couldn’t be more pleased! Thank you Russell, Dianne and staff.

Buckland estate was absolutely amazing, all the staff were absolutely amazing! From the time of our engagement we knew that Buckland was the place to get married. From the very first day we went and visited Buckland and seen all it had to offer for our very special day we knew it was the place! Di told us from the very beginning that their job was to make our life as easy as possible during the planning process and the wedding day, and that’s exactly what they done! It was beautiful from the set up, to the end of the night it was honestly so beautiful and we will forever cherish our special day! I can’t thank all the staff and the magnificent Buckland estate enough for making our day/night all it was!

Such a beautiful venue with lots of accommodation included and glamping options. Several options of where you can hold the ceremony, we chose front stairs and only did some minimal draping as decoration and the building is already so incredible. It's a blank in terms of which suppliers you hire so you can create the perfect wedding for you with the perfect vendors. Everyone commented on how perfect the venue was. We also got to spend the night before at the venue, get ready there and have everything in the one location.

Buckland was great to deal with and the wedding weekend was amazing. We booked out the venue out for the whole weekend which made it easy for our guests to enjoy themselves. They were very accommodating as we got married in the middle of a heat wave .

Eloping

Hi, we are looking to elope. Most packages we’ve seen for venues come with a celebrant and photographer. We’d like my partners brother to perform the ceremony but as he isn’t a registered celebrant we had looked at doing the legal bits during the week at the registry office. We also don’t require a photographer as we already have one from previous events we’d like to use again. Most elopement packages come with both of these things as a must have inclusion. Any suggestions??

Buckland Estate

Many venues may just rent you the space for a short time and you provde everthing. The issue it may be hard to find on a weekend when they are booked? The other option is to look at some local council parkland, river bank etc whch they rent for a nomnal fee. The issue is you wil need to provde chairs etc etc.

What are all the considerations we need for an outdoor wedding?

Hi there, we are considering an outdoor wedding. What are any pitfalls we'd need to prepare for, or ways in which outdoor weddings are handled differently to indoor ones?

Buckland Estate

Outdoor weddings are now popular than ever before but the key considerations are - 

1. Time of the year / climate. Even with fire pits and heaters they make great winter additions but the key issue is protection from the rain.

2. Faciities - Make sure the venue has sufficient power, lighting parking, toilet facilities and rubbish collection.

3. The look - Does the venue suit your style? Does it have an old barn or space that can be decorated to suit what your looking for? Country ouback, vintage, modern, qwuirky or marquess if you have the budget? etc

4. Is there room and easy acess for your vendors? (caterers, furniture deliveries pop up bars etc)

5. Does it include everything you need as things like marquess, toilets, generators etc can be very expensive additions.

6. Noise - will noise and music be an issue? what is the curfew time?

Overall outdoor weddings arent vefy different to indoor weddinsg but generally far more enjoyable.
