Located in the heart of Auburn in the Clare Valley, Velvet and Willow is the cool kid in town. With space for up to 100 guests, this is the location for couples who want a unique wedding venue with all the cosy and relaxed vibes.
Velvet & Willow are a licensed cellar door and cafe by day, but now also double as a stunning wedding and celebration venue by night.
From the moment you step into the lush and vibrant garden, you can tell that lots of love and care has gone into shaping this lovely space. The different levels and areas create a bit of a secret garden feel. The owners have even produced a map so that guests can identify different plant species as they wander around the garden!
If you have always wanted a garden ceremony, but with more of an intimate feel, Velvet and Willow is pretty much the perfect choice. Some of the larger trees have been draped with fairy lights, making the garden feel magical once the sun starts to dip below the horizon.
The paved patio is a great multi-functional space, we’re thinking casual cocktail space, lounge furniture or even an open-air dance floor. Nestled within the garden is an open-sided pavilion that can be utilised for ceremonies, as a breakout area for pre-dinners or for a formal reception for up to 70 guests.
An additional area that can be used for very intimate functions is The Pantry. This petite but super cute space with its slate floors and stone walls is ideal for an elopement ceremony.
Velvet and Willow is an affordable and flexible Clare Valley venue. While wines are included in their packages, couples have the option to add on their own additional beverages, as well as selecting their own caterer. The team at Velvet and Willow are happy to offer suggestions for catering or food trucks, as they have built up a great network of suppliers.
And if you’re on the search for accommodation, they have that sorted too, with two cottages available onsite for couples and family (up to 6 guests).
Velvet and Willow is a funky garden venue with personality. We’re pretty sure once you’ve see it, you won’t bother seeing any others.
