Located only 2 hours from Sydney and Canberra, and under 1 hour from Wollongong and the beaches. We offer accommodation for up to 140 guests, plus room for camping near bathroom facilities, making Weddings the Wilde the absolute perfect venue for couples who are after a relaxed, festival feel, or just want a wedding somewhere a little different, where that precious time with their guests can be maximised.
Being an outdoor education facility the bunk rooms are basic, but don’t let that scare you... they are warm, clean, spacious, comfortable, have their own well maintained bathrooms and are super affordable for your guests to get settled in to relax and play all weekend.
Arrive friday night, and have a special dinner with your nearest and dearest, welcome your guests on saturday morning, get ready on site in our bridal ready room, get married in our incredible bush chapel or outdoors in the forest setting on Saturday.
Photo opportunities are in abundance on site and nearby, then party into the night and roll into bed only to wake up sunday morning to a delicious recovery breakfast while you can chat and say hello to those guests you didnt get a chance to enjoy the night before!
We can provide catering, ample activities and exclusive use of our amazing bushland venue.
Our bush chapel is a 3 minute walk from the main reception area and a stunning and enchanting option for your ceremony, seating up to150 (with standing room for more), the bush chapel is truly an incredible spot to exchange vows.
If that isn't your style, chose one of our gorgeous natural forest settings for your ceremony in the sun.
The Marquee on the Green awaits your styling and personal touches. A spacious, level green area ready for mingling, games, dancing and memorable times with family and friends. Kick on into night around firepits with our softly lit festoon lights.
Our couples have loved having the freedom to create their own vibe for their wedding weekend.
With exclusive use of our venue, it means bringing in your own caterers, food trucks, mobile bar, bands, stylists, entertainers...we have even had pink jumping castles and ball pits...setting up a glamping village, having a pizza and movie night, chats around fire pits, jamming in our teepee...there are endless fun ways possible for bringing your people together.
