Thank you, thank you, thank you! Homestead Berry hosted our most wonderful wedding on the weekend and we could not have wished for a more perfect event! The generosity shown, attention to detail from the whole team, the warmth of the hosts and the most beautiful setting, ensured the day and night ran smoothly but was also the perfect blend of formal and fun! Only wish we were doing it all again this weekend, much love and gratitude to all involved.
Annie and Steve -April 22
My husband and I got married at the Homestead and had the best experience we could have hoped for! The venue is gorgeous and Julie, Matthew and their team were exceptionally accommodating. From the Friday afternoon when we arrived to the Monday morning when we checked out we were made to feel like family.
The package and its inclusions covered everything that we wanted and needed from a venue; accommodation, furniture for reception and ceremony, buses for guests, dinner the night before and breakfast the next day… the list goes on! They also had a great list of recommended vendors and genuinely seemed engaged in delivering a seamless wedding weekend experience. I very highly recommend considering this gorgeous venue for your wedding celebrations!
Bek and Ben – May 22

Danielle and Shane – June 2023
We recently had our wedding here and wanted to say how amazing the venue and staff were.
The day was absolutely stunning, made all the more special by how incredible the venue, staff and atmosphere was. Rachael has been such an incredible help throughout the lead up, and everyone was so accommodating across the weekend. Both families were blown away by the set up, service and general look and feel of the place. It wasn’t just a wedding venue for us but an amazing weekend away spot.
I couldn’t recommend The Homestead more as one of the most amazing wedding venues on the South Coast.
Jess, September 2022
