In the heart of Swan Valley, Sandalford Winery has earned its reputation as a premier venue, offering couples a timeless and unique space to celebrate their wedding day.

With its picturesque vineyards, bespoke rooms, and on-site ceremony locations, Sandalford Winery creates an atmosphere that transports couples and their guests to a world of romantic splendour.

Spacious and versatile

“Our timeless and unique venue with bespoke rooms and on-site ceremony locations set amongst our Vineyard makes you feel you can be anywhere in the world,” says Jenny Hvalgaard, Wedding & Corporate Tourism Manager at Sandalford Winery.

One of the standout features of Sandalford Winery is its ability to accommodate weddings with up to 300 guests in the Estate Room, which seamlessly flows onto a spacious decking area. From there, guests can enjoy pre-dinner drinks on the meticulously manicured lawns, savoring exquisite wines while soaking in panoramic views of the vineyard. This convenience of having both the ceremony and reception in one location is a sought-after experience for couples aiming to enhance their guests’ overall enjoyment.

What sets Sandalford Winery apart is its commitment to tailoring each wedding to the couple’s unique vision. “No two weddings are the same, and to watch couples bring their vibe and personal touches into these beautiful spaces always brings new life to our venue,” adds Hvalgaard. Transforming a couple’s dream wedding into a reality that exceeds their expectations is the ultimate source of satisfaction for the team at Sandalford Winery.

Timeless style

In the ever-evolving wedding industry, trends come and go at a rapid pace. Sandalford Winery advises couples to consider timeless elegance, where less is often more. The venue’s rooms are already designed to complement the romantic ambience of a wedding, reducing the need for excessive decorations. Soft pastel florals and a raw natural look have emerged as popular choices, allowing couples to reflect their style and personalities.

Above and beyond

Sharing a beautiful anecdote, Hvalgaard recalls a couple who decided to have their wedding on the lawn area overlooking the vineyard, even though they had initially booked the Estate Room. This decision led to a creative transformation, with festoon lighting, oversized chandeliers, and unique bar setups that framed the Merlot Lawn. It was an extraordinary event that showcased how Sandalford Winery goes above and beyond to bring a couple’s vision to life.

Invaluable advice

When it comes to selecting a wedding venue, Hvalgaard emphasizes the importance of visiting multiple locations and asking the right questions. “There is a venue for everyone, and couples should really spend time visiting at least 3 locations before making a decision,” she advises. Additionally, couples should inquire about staffing ratios and carefully review the venue’s terms and conditions.

Hvalgaard encourages couples to cherish their wedding day memories beyond photographs. “Write about your wedding day to help solidify your memories,” she suggests, emphasizing that it’s not just about the pictures but also the conversations and how it felt on the day.

Helicopters and fireworks

Sandalford Winery prides itself on being a venue that welcomes unique requests, from helicopter arrivals to fireworks over the lake. However, Hvalgaard also highlights the significance of creating the right atmosphere by choosing a venue that suits the guest count. “Atmosphere is a big part that makes any event,” she notes, emphasizing the importance of selecting a space that complements the size of the wedding.
