Amazing venue for our perfect day!

The Vines was perfect for us, to be able to hire the pub, the accommodation and the paddock. As a dry hire, Cami and Ian allowed the flexibility that we needed to create our day, our way. The couldn’t do enough to help. All our guests loved it and loved the relaxed nature of the day. Many people stayed on the Friday night as well as the Saturday of our wedding. Being able to stay, meant that people could relax and really enjoy the wedding. Beautiful setting and great facilities, many guests said that they would return to stay at The Vines. Thank you to The Vines for helping us to have the best day of our lives and for our guests to state that it was “the best wedding they have ever been to”.
