Kimberly and Kevin host eco-friendly rustic winery wedding


Green-thinking couple Kimberly and Kevin were keen to create the perfect rustic winery wedding that left a minimal footprint.

Kimberly, 35, says they wanted a warm, fun and meaningful wedding at Peterson House in Pokolbin, in the New South Wales Hunter Valley.

“They share our commitment to sustainability and fit in with our theme of a native Australian, rustic and eco-friendly wedding,” the bride says of the venue.

“They have a large solar power system, a commitment to sourcing local produce and have banned single- use plastics in their restaurant. The Peterson House wines were also a major plus!”

Kimberly and Kevin, 33, wed on March 2, 2019 in the venue’s new sandstone chapel before guests enjoyed drinks and lawn games in the vineyard.

The reception was held in the venue’s stone house, with styling by the bride and groom.

“Kevin designed the menus and the native greenery and wooden styling incorporated our love for the great outdoors,” Kimberly says.

The Baker Boys Band ensured the dance floor was packed all night and the groom, a musician, also surprised the guests with a number of impromptu saxophone solos.

The couple’s rings were sourced from Michael Hill, with Kevin popping the question while hiking the Arctic Circle Trail in Greenland. “We then had to carry the ring carefully for the rest of the hike, including through a number of precarious river crossings!” Kimberly says.
