CEREMONY

The Orchard Estate boasts a few different ceremony locations to choose from across the stunning property. Say "I do" under the shade of a tall tree down by the macadamia orchard, or high up on the hilltop overlooking the macadamia orchard and pockets of green forest. This property is something from a fairy tale.

COCKTAIL HOUR

As live acoustic music continues to play, your guests will be invited to mingle across the stunning grounds of The Orchard Estate during your cocktail hour. They'll sip on hand-crafted cocktails and nibble on gourmet canapés at sun down, all while slowly taking in the breathtaking views that surround.

RECEPTION

As the sun begins to set, your guests will be invited to the dine under the stars or in the purpose-built barn on the top of the hill, perched in the middle of a grassy manicured lawn at The Orchard Estate. The stylish barn-inspired building is freshly painted in striking charcoal and white.


Dinner will be served on gourmet platters to share with stunning hinterland views in the background. Later in the evening, the barn will be converted into a dance floor with an open bar reopened for late-night cocktails. Speak to your Savvy Wed planner about extending your curfew or afterparty options in town!
