I get to shoot at a lot of wedding venues. Pretty much every weekend from October to April is spent at different location. Some venues are pretty simple, where you hire the shed and bring in your own caterers, others throw the whole package at you. For me, I find that couples are happiest and have the best day when they choose a ceremony location and wedding venue that makes everything easy for them, so that they can focus on their day.This list is by no means complete, and its worth checking back as I add to it regularly.
Quamby Estate near Hagley in Northern Tasmania is a short drive from Launceston, and really is an amazing place to have a wedding. With on-site accommodation in the homestead, a 9 hole golf course, options for ceremonies in any weather, from their iconic Hornbeam tree, to intimate ceremonies in the stunning dining room. The staff at Quamby know how to treat you and your loved ones, with personalised attention, amazing facilities, fantastic food and just a beautiful place for a wedding. If you are looking for a venue in Northern Tasmania that takes all the hassle out of your day, then definitely check out Quamby Estate (and tell them Ed sent you!)
Frogmore Creek Winery near Cambridge, just out of Hobart is definitely one of the best venues for your ceremony and reception in Southern Tasmania. With a gorgeous view over the vineyards and across the valley, it provides the perfect location for an outdoor wedding. The Barrel room makes a perfect reception venue, with amazing food and super helpful staff on hand through the day to make sure everything runs to plan.
Sandridge Estate is a one of a kind spot for a wedding. Located down a winding gravel road, not far from the iconic Boat Harbour beach in North West Tasmania, you will find a giant corrugated tin shed. Seriously huge. The perfect secluded spot for your ceremony either on the lawns, nestled away in the scrub, or if the weather turns less pleasant, inside the barn itself. With their own Glamping tents on-site, you can either just stay there all day, or book one of the nearby beachside air B’n’B’s. The guys at Sandridge can help you source all the best local caterers and musicians, to make your reception complete.
Hawley House is a beautiful old home, located a stones throw from the beautiful beaches of Hawley Beach and Port Sorell in Northern Tasmania. With accommodation on site, beautiful gardens, and a large reception space, it is yet another example of the hidden treasures scattered around our beautiful state.
