St Josephs Guesthouse is an exquisite wedding venue

Your Intimate Daytime Wedding Venue

Are you looking for that different, intimate setting and location for a private daytime wedding?

Then St Joseph’s Guest House and Function Venue is for you.  Located in the MacDonald Valley, just 90 minutes from the busy hub of Sydney, this venue can offer you the peaceful day that you are looking for.  We offer plenty of grassy areas forming a natural amphitheatre overlooking nuptuals on the outdoor deck, or the tasteful ground floor of the church, rich in history and ambiance for an indoor wedding/reception – the setup is totally up to you!

We have three wedding packages which include the venue hire and accommodation for ten people.

      1. 2 nights        $5,500
      2. 3 nights        $6,000
      3. 4 nights        $6,500

For an indoor wedding ceremony, the venue can accommodate up to 100 guests.  For an outdoor ceremony, your guests can enjoy a view of the nuptials from the grounds and the natural amphitheatre at the back.  We provide the canvas for you to create your wedding masterpiece.  Transport for attendants, staff or guests can be arranged if needed.  

Party hire, catering and band options can include:

    • hire professional caterers – you will be onsite to guide them in their setup (see our Suppliers page)
    • organise/bring your own catering – that way you have exactly what you want without paying exorbitant prices
    • bring your own music (which must be moved indoors to the 20m x 7m great hall by 7:00pm) - please discuss your music requirements with us

The photo galleries and videos on this page are meant to draw your attention to the possibility of declaring your love for your partner amongst family and friends in the presence of a deeply spiritual Australian history.  In its very early days, countless convicts and free settlers have celebrated their love within the walls of this magnificent building, and now you too can have the opportunity to experience the richness of the Australian heritage that has given life to many generations.

Since its opening in 2014, the Guesthouse has received a number of both heritage and magazine awards.  It is gaining popularity as an ideal venue for intimate functions and has received acknowledgment as an exquisite venue for weddings.
