Barn-Style Venues in South Australia - Part one

With rustic and barn style weddings becoming ever more popular, there are many brides to be on the search for unique venues offering that relaxed, rural, yesteryear look.
To assist, I thought I’d share what I came across in Adelaide, during my search for the perfect rustic garden party venue!

Longview Winery, Macclesfield:
An original dairy and hay shed from the 1920s, this place has the rustic, rugged, woody feel. Gorgeous!
Plus it is set in a glorious vineyard – perfect for your ceremony! See more here

 Golding Wines:
Still in the Adelaide Hills is Golding wines at Lobethal.
Their sandstone barn comfortably fits 150 people. It also features a lawned area and lovely courtyard space.. again with views over the vineyard.  I haven’t checked this place out in person but think a trip to the cellar door is needed. It looks so picturesque! Check it.

The Shores, West Beach:
You don’t necessarily have to venture out of the metro area for a barn-like venue. Centrally located, the Shores Function Centre at West Beach has a great woodsy, rustic feel.. and is so versatile it can fit up to 1800 people! They have several rooms available, from the main woolshed area through to the outdoor decking. I think you could make this work so that guests feel like they are in the country!
Have a look at their packages on this site

Al Ru Farm,
Located about 35 minutes north-east of Adelaide, this Barn is not so rustic in style, but is ever so pretty.
It seats about 80 people – or 120 cocktail style. It is set in amazing gardens!!
The actual website doesn't do it justice, so have a look at amaranthine wedding consultants instead. They have some pics and info. 

I'll be back with the second installment of this topic soon.. including the venue I went with.
