Weddings

For lovers who like to start their story a little differently

Anything but ordinary

Eleven Eighty is a romantically restored venue full of historic treasures and curated artful spaces, and all yours to tie the knot your way.

Perhaps it’s a sundown ceremony followed by a laid back soiree on the lawn. Or a romantic winter solstice twist with a feast to end all feasts in the courtyard under the fairy lights and chandeliers of the bespoke marquee or a cocktail party in the old school hall dancing the night away.

Enjoy the freedom and creativity. It’s your adventure to share. Take your time. Soak up the memories. In a wonderland of the unexpected.

Testimonials

We just had the most magical wedding here – 10/10 venue!!! We cannot speak more highly of our experience! Amazing hosts and team, with exceptional attention to detail. There are so many incredible places for photos (but also the photos don’t do it justice!) and the whole ambience really contributed to our wedding. It was amazing being able to stay at the property for the weekend. We absolutely loved it and could not recommend it more!

Jess D

The unique venue catered for our family requirements and beyond with many personalised details. Every part of the venue was utilised from the train carriage, the on-site accomodation, through to the beautifully decorated bar and iconic tree swing.

Our wedding getaway consisted of 3 days and 2 nights surrounded with loved ones onsite. We enjoyed great company, good food, fun lawn games, and created many wonderful memories. The venue was perfect for our needs. It was kid and dog friendly, spacious, clean, offered many entertainment spaces, and felt like a home away from our home.

We cannot thank Reanah enough for her support and recommendations. We are so grateful to have engaged such talented vendors who went out of their way to make our day special, thank you so much!

Stacey and I highly recommend Eleven Eighty.

Eleven Eighty has to be the best venue on the south coast for a funky lux wedding or to be honest, any event that you need to be seriously special. The place is like a treasure trove filed with beautiful thoughtfully curated objects and super styled so that every different area is truly unique. There are so many gorgeous settings all just perfectly put together. The vintage train carriage blew me away.

We fell in love with Eleven Eighty because it’s a super unique venue. We knew we wanted something a little less traditional with a cool, relaxed party vibe and felt that Eleven Eighty really delivered on this. We especially love the courtyard and alfresco dining aspect of the venue and the rustic vibe of the bar.

Grounds of Alexandria meets Soho House meets Alice in Wonderland…… Wow! How did we not know about this place? So incredibly beautiful with hidden treasures and unexpected plot twists around every corner. Riddled with character, old world charm and modern luxury, I really can’t think of an event space that has as much wow factor as this did.

Angie Laxton

We have booked our special day here. We were looking for a venue that could show our personalities, and Eleven Eighty has plenty of that! It is so cute wherever you look. Reanah is super friendly and easy to talk to. She has taken our special day as hers and was super helpful with info and suppliers. I’m so excited about our wedding and spending it here with our families!

“We had our wedding at Eleven Eighty in November and it was truly the most magical experience for us and also for all of our guests. The grounds and venue are simply beautiful. Everything is so well maintained and the attention is second to none!”

Phil & Sue - Sydney

“I facilitated a corporate away day for a Sydney-based team, and found the historic and quirky venue was a great experience, with all we needed for a productive and creative day included – even lawn games for brain breaks and team building!”

Anthony - Berry

“An out-of-the-ordinary South Coast getaway with lovely hosts Richard and Clare. They were extremely welcoming and ensured we were well looked after, helping us arrange a private chef and visits to the local attractions.”

Liat Gould - Sydney

“There are some amazing quirks on this property that we absolutely loved; the converted train carriage was fantastic! The house was immaculate and Clare and Richard are amazing, down to earth hosts – we felt well looked after from start to finish.”

Mark Hatnean - Sydney

“Fantastic, a touch of class with an oldy worldy feel. Perfect to escape the city, do nothing at all or go all out and fill your weekend with wineries, ziplining, kayaking and more. Did I mention there’s a train carriage in the garden?!”

Jay Hobson - Sydney
