Introducing – The Dark Horse Vineyard

Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to tick off something that had been on my Vision Board for many years. Together with the Orth family, my husband and I invested in our very first wedding venue located in the Hunter Valley – The Dark Horse Vineyard.

Over the last 12 weeks we have been very busy executing weddings that had been booked in by the previous owner, doing photo shoots, website, ramping up the Instagram, conducting site visits etc etc. It has been such and exciting and rewarding process and I am very excited to share this with you! Here is a little about the property and how you can get in touch if you would like to know more about this gorgeous Hunter Valley wedding venue!

Dark Horse is located in lovely Lovedale, just two hours from Sydney. I was first attracted to the property because of its two, very striking black caviar buildings – The Stables (the purpose built events space) and The Barn House (the Old Cellar Door and accommodation.) I then soon realised it was very different to many venues I had seen before – the finishes were so high end and luxe, yet you are surrounded by 25 acres including a private vineyard.

With multiple stunning backdrops to choose from, you can decide where to exchange your vows. Maybe you’ll choose the grand barn doors, a wedding arch set up on the manicured lawns, under the blossoming pear trees or entwined in the vines. The Barnhouse or the Stables can easily serve as a wet weather option. Oh, and we are also a pet friendly wedding venue!
