Winter Weddings

Winter weddings are on the rise, especially in cool-climate destinations such as Orange.
Tree branches and wood fires can be incorporated into ceremonies and receptions, as well as fur or mossy finishes. If only we knew of a venue with an inbuilt fireplace?

The Greenhouse of Orange is an ideal destination Winter wedding.
Accommodation and winery tours available through Mercure Orange, which is just metres from the venue and offers guest benefits as its part of the Orange Ex-Services’ Club too!

It’s Springtime and nature’s bounty is readily available! And, who doesn’t love Peonies in November?
The beautiful flowers are usually available from this time of year and make beautiful bouquets, centrepieces or hanging trestles for that extra wow factor.

New Year’s Eve

Why not really start the new year off right and have your celebration on New Year’s Eve?
It’s a great opportunity to add some send off sparklers to your wedding night (hint: which makes for great keepsake wedding photos!), and makes for great excuses for anniversary getaways during the holidays.
