You’re considering us for your special day! Read on to find out all the information you need for your wedding.
We at the historic and heritage listed Collits’ Inn offer a truly stunning and unique wedding destination located right in the heart of Hartley Valley at the base of the historic Mount York.
Boasting idyllic locations for every aspect of your special day including your ceremony, reception, luxury accommodation and photography all in one venue!
Eliminate the hassle and stress that can so often accompany long drives to and from ceremony and reception venues to enjoy the ease and magnificence of a Collits’ Inn destination wedding!
You and your guests are free to wander through the historic grounds of the estate at any time during your stay at Collits Inn. There truly is something for everyone right on our doorstep.
The original Inn has been beautifully converted into a number of historical accommodation rooms and these will be exclusively available to you.
With 3 double rooms and a twin room, the option for an additional roll away, a study room with a single bed plus another room with a fold out bed we can accommodate up to 12 of your nearest and dearest to stay with you over your special weekend.
As the bride to be, imagine getting ready with bridesmaids and family by your side while the make up artists and hair stylists come to you, happily sipping champagne and truly enjoying your entire day. A cooked breakfast is included with the accommodation on both the mornings of your wedding & the day after, with a continental breakfast available also.
Your ceremony can be held anywhere on the historic property. While we can suggest the best spots for the ceremony there are many beautiful locations for you to choose from and you will have exclusive access to the entire property for the ceremony and the photographs that will follow.
Included will be chairs for guests, an area decorated for the bridal party, chairs and table for the signing of the registry.
Pierce’s Barn is the original barn of the property and has been restored to cater for your Wedding. During the restoration of the property several large pine trees (over 100 yrs old) were taken from the front of the inn and have cleverly been converted into the tables within the barn for our guests. A constant reminder of the heritage of Collits Inn.
The barn alone is suitable for a reception of up to 90 /100 guests (depending on your layout). We have, and are happy to accommodate much larger weddings (up to 150 guests) however it will require the additional cost of hiring a marquee that can be combined with the barn. The marquee joins the barn at the large open front section as to not lose the ambience and feel created by the historic original structure.
We have plentiful decorations you can use for your centrepieces at no extra charge. We also have an array of decor for hire. Our carefully selected vendor list can also provide you with the dream team to create your vision! Our team will have the barn set before your arrival so all you need to do is put together your centrepieces with your tribe. We are always floating around to give you a hand if you need. The Barn and grounds are styled for you to add as much or as little as you wish.
