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
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!

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.
