& don’t forget to consider…

Your venue hire includes time to set up and style the day before and to come at your leisure the day after the wedding to bump out your decorations and pick up cars from the carpark (ie none of the hustle associated with bump in, bump out and event on the same day). 

Although Pioneer Country is a working farm we are only 10 minutes from town. You won’t need to hire a bus to get your guests safely home because a cab fare is still very affordable and they can come back at their leisure the day after to retrieve their cars. 

You always need a backup wet weather plan if you are considering an outdoor ceremony and our chapel is included as a no extra cost solution.

Our wide open outdoor spaces and oversized buildings ensure you are in the strongest possible situation should COVID restrictions or the 4 sqm rule be suddenly re-applied. 120 seat (pews) Island Style Chapel with sides that open to allow viewing for up to 300 guests. (Applying the COVID 4 sqm rule and social distancing please allow for 60 people inside the chapel and up to the maximum allowable cap outside the chapel ).
