✨ Love under the magical Southern Highlands Stars ✨ A Sylvan Glen wedding means your exclusive, fully inclusive use of our multi-award winning, private, 60-acre estate for your very own 3 day, 2 night wedding festival! We offer a complete destination wedding package including accommodation for you and your guests. All you have to do is relax and have the time of your life!

“Donna, Matt and the whole team truly did go above and beyond to make the most incredible weekend for both my Wife and I for our Wedding. Firstly, the on site accommodation was exceptional. Each room has its own bathroom, so it truly feels more like a hotel than a homestead.Secondly, there are plenty of rooms to be able to accommodate multiple groups and allow them to all socialise separately (because, let's be honest, there are always different topics of conversation that appeal to different groups). However, they have a fantastic separated "barn style" eatery that can easily accommodate everyone for some cosy meals by the fire. Similarly, the reception area has multiple sections to allow guests some downtime on the big night. They allow guests access to the Golf grounds to enjoy as many rounds as they would like, which certainly helped with my nerves to the point I was utterly relaxed all weekend. Finally, on the day itself, all the staff went above and beyond to be extremely helpful. Always wearing a smile and assisting us with whatever we needed, they helped to make the day run so smoothly. I would not hesitate to recommend this place for any Wedding. Every single guest commented on how perfect this place was, and we whole-heartedly agree!”  Stuart C

The Hescott family bought Sylvan Glen in 2001. The historic property had been a family orchard since the 1870’s and hosted local weddings, dances, and accommodation from the turn of the century. Three generations of the family still run and have a passion for weddings and events. With over 20 years of experience under our belts we are very proud to be hosting seamless, stress-free wonderful events!

We had our wedding at Sylvan Glen and it was the best weekend ever! We had the venue from Friday- Sunday and Donna and Matt were so easy to deal with. They are such a nice couple. There’s a house there that slept most of our guests (we had about 50) there’s a cold course for the boys to play and beautiful views. Everyone loved it and said it was such a great wedding. We got ready there and had the ceremony and reception there so we didn’t need to leave. Thank you again Love Katie & Matt

Everything from start to finish was AMAIZING. Customer service was great. People were easy to work with & so relaxed. An amazing show. If they were needed they were just a call away. So many compliments from our guests. If I could give more then 5 stars I would.

June 2016

Our package included everything - catering, bride and groom accommodation, golf cart hire, wedding coordinator, bus to pick up and drop off guests from Bundanoon, equipment hire, etc. Couldn't fault them. It was magical and relaxed. Nothing was too hard. The food for the entire weekend was included. Donna (the owner) was fantastic. The rooms were all decorated differently and the bridal suite was beautiful. Would have liked filtered water available through the weekend though as the water from the taps didn't taste great. I loved having my immediate family with me the entire weekend. The food was plentiful with canapes, entree, main and dessert buffet with tea and coffee on offer and alternate drop. The food was delicious and no one went home hungry. They even made the effort to bring a plate of canapes down to the bridal party whilst we took photos. Everything was great!

Sylvan glen is a stunning venue to get married at, the whole weekend was perfect and Donna and Matt made the whole process so easy. We had the most amazing time here!

Donna and Matt are both amazing and always available to answer phone calls and emails promptly and efficiently. Sylvan Glen is a credit to them both, extremely comfortable guest house provides comfortable onsite accommodation for family and friends making the wedding not only a day event but a truly wonderful Wedstival from Friday night to Sunday morning. The attention to detail in the guest house is second to none. The other onsite features like the salon, golf course and games area means there is no need to leave the place. The function room set up is fantastic and Donna and her staff make it look magical, again her attention to detail is flawless. The food yummy and just the right serving size, staff all friendly and efficient, nothing a bother at all. Our much anticipated wedding event could not have gone any better. Highly recommend and can't thank them enough.
