Last weekend I went to beautiful Berry with 7 girlfriends for a long overdue girls trip. We had beautiful weather, the wine was flowing, and we pretty much did not stop eating for the three days we were there! Berry is such a gorgeous boutique country town. It has such beautiful little stores overflowing with home wares, art and antiques.
We were lucky enough to catch the Berry Markets when we were there. And given we are always on the look out for beautiful vintage props to add to our collection I just had to have a look before we left. And I was so happy I did! I found the sweetest elderly couple selling mint condition vintage bone china tea cup trios ( i bought everything they had!) and another lovely man selling such an eclectic variety of items. From him I picked up some very cool vintage bottles…one he literally dug up himself in the US back in 1981! It’s a vintage Florida Water glass bottle and is just gorgeous.
As we were driving home I was thinking about how Berry would be such a beautiful place for a wedding. Fantastic little town, huge amount of accommodation options, and just 2 1/2 hours from Sydney. If you were thinking of a romantic country, garden wedding, here are two venues that may just be what you are looking for….
1. Montrose Berry Farm – A stunning venue with gorgeous gardens and rolling hills. You can have your reception in the Barn which holds up to 140 people, or an outdoor reception under the stars. Gorgeous!
2. Merribee - Just 15 minutes from Berry is this beautiful 1850′s Historic architect restored property. They have accommodation on site for up to 20 guests, and a number of beautiful outdoor and indoor areas for your ceremony and reception.
There are many other restaurants, wineries and private houses all available for weddings. And the next day, when you are nursing sore heads, a visit to the Berry Sourdough Cafe is an absolute must for one of their famous sausage rolls…you haven’t tried flaky pastry until you have eaten this! Definitely the best I have ever eaten! YUM!
