I have fallen in love with the idea of a backyard / forrest / homestead / shed / barn style wedding that is full of good food, laughs, lights, family (where the kids can run around) and lots of locations for pictures but I am finding that the locations I have come across are going to chew our budget!
The only real requirements are that the location must be in the South West of Western Australia with trees (duns, margaret river, pemberton etc) and not over $3000 for just to hire the location. Our total budget is ideally $8-10K but probably $12-15K.
I have looked at:
- Solitare Homestead which was $3000 just for the location (currently top pick)
- Gilgara homestead
- Ellensbrook Homestead
- Donnelly river (my first pick because of the meaning to us but a tad far)
- Karri Valley Resort
- A bunch of winerys which are out of the question – they are just tooo much and wont allow pretty things to hang from the roof
- The secret Garden (OMG Stunning and only $8K just for a ceremony!)
I don’t know if people with private properties would allow us to have a wedding there but that would be a grand idea. Some of them are $700 per night and are huge!
Anyone that has ideas / locations or secret locations is encouraged to comment… but if you also have been married down that way, I would love to see pictures!!
