Children attending a wedding must be supervised at all times and by an adult, the site is a dangerous natural waters fall and cliff edge.

We provide children’s meals 2-12 years of age at $85 per child.

Parents / Guardians  need to acknowledge they will take full responsibility for their children whilst onsite.

Children’s Meals – Chicken Schnitzel chips and salad followed by ice cream and sweets. We usually try and feed the kids first, its important they are happy!!

A good idea is to bring along your own baby sitter let the children attend the wedding  ceremony and then after their meal the baby sitter can take the younger kids back home.

This will allow you and your guests to relax and enjoy the evening and not have to worry about little kids.

Our boutique accommodation has been designed for couples and  children   are not permitted  to stay….apologies in advance.

A polite way of saying no kids Due to the location of property on a  Cliff Edge  this is an adult only celebration.

Photos generally take about 30-45 minutes if taken onsite directly after the ceremony. Due to the close proximity of the pool and the stunning backdrop, photos are often taken throughout your function.

Due to our unique location, the property has number of DANGER signs warning people to keep clear of the cliff edge, especially in the ornamental pond and waterfall areas. This is for their own safety and we take the safety of our guests very seriously. If a photographer/guest ignores these signs, they will be asked to leave the site immediately. Please can you make sure your photographer is aware of this important request.

When is the best time to have speeches?

We recommend your MC announces the speeches after the entrée is cleared. For combined speeches greater than 20 minutes, we recommend you have them in 2 separate blocks, this will ensure a continuity of our service throughout the function. A microphone and lectern is provided. If you would like you speeches after the entrée or main they can only start after all plates are cleared.
