The Pines is a picturesque paddock space on the edge of Kuitpo Forest, tucked between the Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula. This 50-acre property is a venue with nature at its heart, and a totally blank canvas for you to create your dream wedding… A DIY lovers paradise!
This property features stunning views over the rolling hills, beautiful native grasses and private gate access to the forest, however the real hero is the spring fed lake with half an acre of water which sustains an abundance of native wildlife that call The Pines home year-round.
While there are many spaces you can choose for your ceremony, our favourite is the white sand beach on the southern side of the lake as it is the perfect location for a waterside ceremony.
Adjacent to the beach is a level pad recently prepared ready for giant tipis, marquees or an open-air reception under the stars.
Opt for natural textures, mis-matched timber furniture and mason jar lighting for a laid-back country style wedding, or perhaps a woodland boho theme is more your style, with vintage rugs, cane peacock chairs and macramé accents. Whatever style you choose, the natural beauty of The Pines will truly shine, and there are almost no restrictions to your vision.
As a dry hire facility, this venue allows you the flexibility to bring in your choice of caterers and beverage providers. It’s a space ideal for paella bars, food trucks and caravan bars.
The Pines is conveniently located close to accommodation in neighbouring McLaren Vale and Willunga, so you and your guests won’t have far to travel, and to ensure stress-free logistics for your guests, buses can easily be arranged.
Hire includes access to the property for 5 days, allowing you all the time in the world to arrange set up and pack down afterwards, with plenty of time in between to party! Hey, why not throw in a post-wedding brunch at the Surf Club or McLaren Vale wine tour to complete your amazing weekend?
The Pines is an idyllic dry hire wedding venue providing you with space, privacy and endless possibilities to create a memorable wedding as unique as you.
