Hunter Valley Wine Country has several different regions, each with its own character and features. Every region is beautiful and close to each other so you can’t really make a wrong decision! But, here’s some information which can help you decide if a Lovedale wedding is right for you.

What’s Lovedale like?

Lovedale is centrally located in Hunter Valley Wine Country. It’s right next to Pokolbin but has a more intimate and boutique vibe than its neighbour.

Top reasons to have a Lovedale wedding:

  • Boutique

    Lovedale wineries are boutique and family-owned, so if you’re looking to have your reception at a winery, or visit Lovedale wineries during your wedding weekend, then you’ll get a more intimate experience in Lovedale.

  • Foodie heaven

    There are loads of great restaurants and cafes in Lovedale, whose focus is on locally-grown produce. It’s home to the famous Lovedale Long Lunch, where wineries open their doors in the 3rd weekend of May so you can enjoy a progressive lunch for the ultimate foodie experience. The Lovedale Long Lunch sets the relaxed, foodie-vibe of the region.

  • Intimate and romantic

    Because most of the wineries tend to be smaller in Lovedale there is a great intimate, country and romantic atmosphere in the region. A lot of the wineries have olive oil tastings and art displays.

  • Variety of wedding and accommodation locations

    Just like in Pokolbin, the Lovedale wedding reception and ceremony options are varied from wineries to restaurants. If you’re planning a larger wedding and are looking for group accommodation with an on-site reception location, then the Crowne Plaza is a good option. If beer is your thing, The Crowne Plaza also has the Lovedale Brewery and Distillery.

    There’s also a range of smaller accommodation options from B&B’s, hotels, motels and self-contained cottages.

    Lovedale has its own cute wedding chapel, the Lovedale Wedding Chapel, for those wanting a chapel ceremony.

If you want to get off the beaten track a little more check out Wollombi wedding venues.
