One of the most requested spaces on the property for a ceremony is ‘The Lawns’.
A versatile space which can accommodate an intimate party of loved ones or crowds of friends and family to come together to witness your union. If your vision is more directed at indoor locations, the historic Barrel Hall is immersed in over 160 years of history and will leave your guests in awe. With stunning natural light filling the room from the vineyard windows, the Barrel Hall is a beautiful venue to say your vows. Rows of barrels line the walls and seating will be supplied for half your guests.
Seppelt Wines also offers a retreat for the wedding party in the heart of the function venue, with exclusive access to the "Jaluka Room" with a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine to enjoy with your wedding party.
After you've said your vows and slip away with your photographer, photo locations are within close proximity to your function space. You have the opportunity to take your wedding party and photographer into the underground cellars, the winery itself for an industrial aesthetic as well as a pine plantation on the property. For photographs offsite, the rolling mountains of the Grampians are just down the road. While you are gone, the option of a pop-up bar and canapes are available to keep your guests entertained before you return and the reception begins.
At Seppelt Wines, we have several reception locations for a celebration that lasts long into the night. The ‘1892 Cellar’ has the potential to host a more traditional wedding reception, with the capacity to seat 40 - 100 guests and 40 -200 guests for a cocktail style reception.
Another indoor location with the opportunity for more of an industrial setting is the Barrel Hall. This space can accommodate larger weddings with the capacity to seat 60 - 160 guests for a meal or 60 - 200+ for a cocktail style reception. Fairy lights cover the ceiling creating a warm and inviting atmosphere and plenty of space for a stage depending on the size of your band.
‘The Lawns’ not only a beautiful site for your ceremony but also has the potential to become a space for your reception. Marquee hire from local businesses who will come and assemble the structure, allows you to make our space your own.
Available to you is our renowned Vine Lodge homestead on the grounds of the winery itself. Your wedding party can prepare in the historic Vine Lodge and can walk across the lawns to your ceremony location. There is plenty of natural lighting for your makeup artist and plenty of room to prepare for the most important day of your life. More often than not, the bride will spend the night before her big day in the homestead with her bridesmaids.
