Set out on the banks of the Cudgegong River in the Central West of NSW, 4 hours from Sydney, is the historic town of Mudgee.

Mudgee is known for its wineries, more than 30 cellar doors, agriculture, heritage and well preserved colonial buildings.

It’s also home to some of the most beautiful wedding venues in NSW, and perhaps even Australia.

 

The Best Wedding Venues In Mudgee

In no particular order, these are my favourite wedding venues in Mudge.

 

1. Blue Wren Farm

The beautiful Blue Wren Farm is a premium wedding venue and working vineyard located just a short 7 minute drive from the heart of Mudgee.

The farm is set on over 50 acres of land and features an abundance of grapevines, stunningly well maintained gardens, native trees and plants, a cherry orchard and manicured lawns. It also features a classic 5 bedroom farmhouse for your use and additional self contained accommodation for your guests.

For your ceremony there is a gorgeous garden complete with a white wooden arbour designed to be styled with a floral display. The garden includes white chairs, an outdoor bar for you and your guests, rustic wine barrel tables, timber stools and fire pits to keep you warm during those cooler months.

And to top it all off, the White Hall. A huge room with pristine white walls and black features to fit 180 seated, or 250 standing, guests for the celebration of your marriage and reception. The White Hall includes white Tiffany chairs, premium hardwood banquet tables, surround sound, large bar and fully equipped kitchen for caterers along with everything else you’d expect from a reception venue.
