Today I had the pleasure of driving over to Rostrevor, a beautiful suburb on the Eastern edge of Adelaide at the bottom of the foothills to meet with Brie from Marybank Functions, one of LCA’s fabulous exhibitors this coming April at Norwood Town Hall.
When I got out of the car at Marybank I immediately felt relaxed with the countryside feel and happy birds chirping away. Given this venue’s proximity to Adelaide Metro that’s an amazing selling point.
I was warmly welcomed by Brie, the owner of the venue who began to tell me its amazing story which I have to say makes it even more special and unique. You see the venue which dates back over 170 years has been in Brie’s family the whole time. Brie’s Parents live in a homestead within the land and so does Brie and her Husband Billy and their children in a separate property within the acreage. Whilst chatting we looked through some awesome photos available of the estate dating back through the generations.
As a wedding venue, Marybank offers everything you’d need for a ceremony and or small reception with the barn available for a sit down meal or cocktail style function. The gardens are perfectly maintained and manicured for your ceremony and the barn totally oozes rustic chic. It was a hot day when I visited but the barn was a beautiful cool temperature. For cooler days there’s a gorgeous wood burner available which would create the most wonderful warm atmosphere.
There’s also the B&B above the barn which has been beautifully styled and the perfect place to get ready before the ceremony and rest after your wedding day. I can totally imagine waking up in this tranquil place, having breakfast on the balcony and admiring the views….
There’s also plenty of jaw dropping views from the vineyard over across to Adelaide along with Black Hill flanking behind. Marybank is a wedding photographers dream……
If you’re looking for a private and secluded venue that offers amazing photo backdrops and rustic charm then Marybank needs to be at the top of your list.
Come and meet with Brie to chat through your wedding reception ideas at our next wedding fair on 12th April 2015, Norwood Town Hall 10.30am – 3.30pm
