A full-service venue in the heart of the Clare Valley, The Rising Sun Hotel offers couples warm country hospitality and the charm of yesteryear. Located in the centre of Auburn, approximately 1.5 hours from Adelaide, this little country pub is a vibrant venue that has a heart of gold.
The Stables is a space that has history buried within its stone walls. These days it has a fresh modern feel with bright white walls, feature roof beams, ripple iron-clad ceiling and Scandi inspired timber light fixtures. As a cocktail function The Stables will fit up to 120 guests, or up to 70 guests for a seated function.
Outside, the venue’s green space is the ideal location for a garden ceremony. Lined with hedges and a large Plane tree providing lots of lovely shade, it can be enjoyed by guests in between formalities. This outside space is also pet friendly, so you can have your fur babe included in the ceremony! Picture comfy lounges, mason jar lanterns and live music for pre-dinners, or even giant games sprawled across the lawns. Alternatively, if you need the space for more guests, the large lawn is big enough for a marquee that can seat up to 240 guests, or up to 400 guests for a cocktail function.
Other spaces that can also be utilised for smaller gatherings are the hotel’s dining room and the Green Room.
Being a full-service venue, The Rising Sun Hotel has all your catering and beverage requirements covered, and will happily tailor their menus for any special dietary needs. They are also happy to make recommendations for any other local wedding suppliers – in the country it’s all about community!
This home away from home is just that – with onsite accommodation for guests available in their Mews rooms, featuring original details and vintage furniture. The bonus of being centrally located is that they are close to many other local accommodation options.
The Rising Sun Hotel is a venue where couples and their guests are welcomed with open arms, and without a doubt, you couldn’t feel more at home.
