Merging Georgian style heritage with modern luxury amenities, Cropley House is one of the most elegant manor houses in the Baulkham Hills. Inside, various ballrooms feature historic chandeliers, pillarless floor plans, and large windows that bathe the spaces with natural light. For even more photo opportunities, you can roam the picturesque gardens in the estate.

Built in the 1920s and set within five acres of picturesque parkland in the Shire of Baulkham Hills, Cropley House is a popular venue choice for elegant Sydney weddings. This historic two-storey Georgian mansion boasts six private function rooms, with two magnificent rooms on the ground floor and four smaller rooms on the first floor.

Formerly a boarding school and community hub, Cropley House reopened its doors following an extensive renovation in 2018 where the mansion was restored to its former grandeur. Its stunning features include manicured gardens, a grand circular driveway, long undercover balconies covered with wisteria, sophisticated ballrooms, and a sweeping staircase.

All of the staff from Cropley House were unbelievably amazing for our wedding on the 21st of March 2020. Amidst all of the immediate restrictions placed upon NSW regarding the size of indoor and outdoor gatherings, they remained understanding of the stress we were under 3 days before our wedding to make serious and fast changes. They still managed to pull off a perfect ceremony and reception, even understaffed so that we could extend our guest list to the absolute maximum we were allowed and all our guests were so impressed with the set up of the reception room, the service, and the food! They remained in constant contact with us in the lead up to our big day, doing their best to keep our hopes up and letting us know of any changes as soon as they could!

Hi Elia and Sasha. Just wanted to say how happy we are with yesterday’s event. Everyone commented on how lovely the venue was. A special thank you to Evelyn for coordinating the night. The guests all raved about the food and I have to say my barramundi was delicious. I’ve never had such beautiful food at a wedding before. Please pass on my appreciation to the chef. Thank you for making our day so memorable.

Great value on decent budget. All inclusive packages including, ceremony, staff, DJ and event planner to help you every step of the way, aswell as on the night to help all the processes be eased and as you want.

We had an amazing wedding reception at Cropley House! Their service was amazing on the night, and leading up the communication was smooth and straight forward. Thank you!

Plenty of off street parking and fantastic food as well! Cropley house is in a great location and also has a garden/gazebo area that is just lovely for ceremonies. We had our ceremony and reception there on a 41c day, with the ceremony being at 3pm the garden area was covered in shade, giving us and our guests some reprieve from the heat.

22 Nov 2020

Amazing venue, extremely happy with the outcome of my big day x thanks for accomodating to all out needs! Would recommend this venue to anyone x

21 Nov 2020

Beautiful venue and all of the staff were friendly and helpful - especially with having to postpone due to COVID. They made it so easy and when the night finally came it could not have been more perfect!

23 Feb 2020

Thank you Sasha and Elia for a wonderful event. Your team were so amazingly understanding with our many questions and specifications with dietary requirements. The ballroom was so beautiful with its chandeliers, and the initmate garden made the perfect on-site ceremony location. We loved the opportunity to attend the open days with our families for secondary viewings, and sample the food. We used the provided DJ, and the night went off without a hitch.

21 Dec 2019

A lovely venue which is convenient for guests as there is plenty of off-street parking. Elia and the staff looked after us and were very accommodating with our requests. Really appreciated having a bridal room to relax in prior to the ceremony. It was great having the DJ included. We had a wonderful evening. Note that the accompanying sides are quite small. I would recommend that if you choose to order side dishes, chose 2 selections and purchase 2 plates of each per table. E.g. 2x seasonal greens, 2x fries. The venue recommended 1 of each per table and we felt it wasn't enough for us on the bridal table of 8 people. I did expect the plates to be larger given the cost. We also found the air-conditioning wasn't working very well in the Victoria Room - it was cooler outside.

Hi Elise, congratulations and thank you for your lovely comments and feedback! We are so delighted to hear the day went beautifully! :) All the best, Love the Cropley House Team! xx

Cropley House were amazing in making sure my wedding ran smoothly. Elia our wedding coordinator was so professional, kind and helpful. She made me feel like I was asking for too much, even when I asked if we could more guests to the wedding just 3 days before the wedding! Elia made it happen! Evelina who managed the wedding on the day was simply amazing. Having met her a few months before the wedding, I had nothing but confidence that the event would run smoothly. Can’t say enough good things about the team at Cropley.

They were beautiful! The venue was beautiful, we had a lot of photos there but I personally didn't eat the food as I couldn't in my dress! We found that the head staff was great and incredibly helpful, but the support staff weren't as attentive.

28 Jun 2019

I just wanted to say thank you SO MUCH for everything you did for us during our wedding planning journey. You made everything so simple and you literally answered every question I had - responded to me with no delay, no matter how many questions I asked hahaha. Seriously thank you for treating our event like it was actually special and really showing that you and the team genuinely cared - you made it that much more special. Everything we wanted was done EXACTLY how we wanted it, it was a dream and everything was perfect 😍😍 can I also just say that the food was DELICIOUS! We will recommend you to everyone :)

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Evelyn, and the rest of the staff at Cropley House. Our wedding reception was absolutely wonderful and all staff made sure to go above and beyond - even looking through the bins for a voucher my mother had left behind!! This is just a testament to how hard you all work and how much you value your clients and we cannot thank you enough. Thank you for all your efficient communication and organization for our wedding reception; everything went beautifully and we had such an amazing night. We will definitely keep recommending Cropley!

Ian and I would like to thank you both for all the wonderful assistance you gave us for and at our Wedding. We both enjoyed the day as did our guests who said the food was delicious, and plenty of it. They couldn't believe how much there was to start with. Our compliments to the Chef and staff. All were impressed with the surroundings and venue. We felt the waiting staff were attentive, polite and very helpful . They did their job well and we would like you to thank them for us. We would gladly give our recommendation to anyone who was looking for a Reception Venue.
