Paxton is a Fleurieu Peninsula winery that has already made a name for itself in the wine industry – distinguished and highly respected for producing superior bio-dynamic and organic wines. And now it is paving the way with weddings, exclusively through VENYU. This amazing venue offers couples a location that combines relaxed vineyard vibes with the flexibility of choice, alongside breathtaking views of the beautiful McLaren Vale.
Sitting pretty on the historic site of Landcross Farm, this property was once a sheep farm and features stone buildings dating back to 1860, that have now been restored to their former beauty. These buildings are surrounded by sprawling lawns, native banksias and gum trees, and rows of sloping vineyards.
Just 45 minutes from Adelaide, Paxton is a tucked away gem. Standing at the cellar door, you’d be hard pressed to believe it is literally only a stone’s throw from the bustling heart of McLaren Vale and its many attractions and accommodation options.
The beauty of this property is that it offers the simplest and most stunning blank canvas for your day, with multiple areas for you and your guests to enjoy.
The Gribble Green, also known as the lower lawn, offers spectacular views of the valley, leading all the way to the foothills of Willunga. This space offers the perfect natural backdrop for your ceremony, or for a reception under the stars. This location is also ideal for a large marquee, comfortably seating up to 200 guests on long tables.
Enclosed by old stone walls & clear blinds, Wheaton Pavilion is a historic barn conversion overlooking the gardens and vines. This barn space lends itself to a formal seated function or a casual cocktail-style function with scattered wine barrels. The Pavilion can comfortably seat up to 120 guests on two long tables.
Ridley Strip is the lush lawn area above the pavilion which boasts a glorious trellised vine and a sunken slate-paved corner. This is a great space for an outdoor dance floor, a relaxed breakaway area with rugs, cushions and lounges, or even for lawn games!
As a VENYU exclusive, Paxton gives you the best of both worlds, offering their wine and beverage packages in conjunction with the venue hire, but allowing you the freedom to choose your own catering suppliers. There is a centrally located catering area that has running water, power & access to a space for mobile fridges, ovens & other catering equipment.
Paxton is a surprising find, and is one of those properties that doesn’t require too much to make it your dream venue. This place is quite literally your own little piece of heaven.
