2016 Ceremony Special !!

For all NEW receptions booked for this year we are offering half price onsite ceremonies!

Calais Estate boasts 130 picturesque acres of land including 30 acres of manicured vineyard which you are welcome to use for photos.

On-site ceremonies are able to start anytime after 5pm as the cellar door is still open until 5pm and customers are still coming onto the property until then.

The cost of $500 includes a water bar for pre-ceremony drinks and they are billed on consumption at $3 each after the event.

We set up two large church pews and also some chairs to accommodate 25% of the guests. A table with skirting and two chairs for the Bride and Groom’s signing.

Large white Bali flags where the ceremony is held and bows on the bridge onto the island where photos can be taken.

Wet weather back up plan; We do have a wet weather back up plan but you need to watch the weather reports and make a decision 3 full working days prior as we need to set this room up with wine barrels. The charge is $150 extra, if you are getting married in the Barrel Room there is no extra charge but we still need 3 full working days prior as we will have to make room prior to setting up for the reception.

Post ceremony bar; We offer a Sparkling bar after the ceremony where the wedding party can have their photos whilst their guests are looked after with Calais Estate sparkling wine, Hunter Valley brewed beers, orange juice and crudity plates for guest to snack on prior to getting into the start of the reception. The cost for the Sparkling Bar is $15 per person and goes for 45 minutes after the ceremony ends enabling the bridal party enough time for plenty of photos.
