March 2024

We had an intimate wedding at The Old Courthouse - the ceremony in the old courthouse itself and then lunch on the verandah area of the bar. It was the perfect setting for an informal wedding. Janine was an absolute pleasure to deal with in organising the details and everything went as requested on the day. The staff on the day were attentive and friendly. Our celebrant, Aisha, was just lovely and all our guests said how perfect the officiating was. The photographer, J.C. (J.C. Bridal) came recommended by the venue and was excellent. All in all, everything about planning the day was so easy thanks to TOC team and the day was exactly what we hoped for.

Darryn and I had our ceremony at the Old Courthouse Marriage Office in Feb 2024 and we were so happy with how the entire event went. The venue itself is just beautiful and was very relaxed, nothing was too much bother. Absolutely everyone we came in contact with was so very friendly and made sure to explain what we needed to know to us so there was no panic on our part. Overall, a great venue, great people and fantastic experience.

The Old Courthouse house is a beautifully renovated venues perfect for our ''courthouse' small wedding. The team looked after our every need and made our special day run smooth. Plenty of different areas for fun pictures and outdoor area for drinks.

We had our wedding with the old courthouse and it was a simple easy venue to plan our wedding at. We had a cocktail wedding and it went fabulously. We had Janine through the process and she was wonderful to deal with and made the wedding the day we wanted.
