LaValla Estate

Planning a wedding can be a daunting experience, and finding the perfect venue that provides a beautiful ceremony location, ample photo opportunities, a kick-arse meal and onsite accommodation for Grandma is certainly no easy feat.

​Cue in a wedding at LaValla where we play host as a one-stop-shop to provide you with multiple beautiful locations to celebrate your vows, a plethora of indoor or outdoor reception areas to suit large or intimate settings, a blend of rustic and upmarket photography and a feast to keep you full for days.

Oh, and we'd never say no to putting Grandma up in one of our Cozy Cottages for the night! We want you to keep your loved ones close, safe and happy before and after the main event.

​If you're seeking a venue that can host a traditional-sized wedding, a large cultural festival, or a cute, boutique celebration, then LaValla has options aplenty...

We firmly believe that your job on your wedding day is to show up, look beautiful and enjoy the party, so we ask you to leave the rest to us! We're a team of wed-heads who know what we're doing - that’s why we won the Supreme Award at the 2019 Wedding Industry Awards.

Your wedding is unique to you, so we'll work closely with you to plan and create the wedding of your dreams in a location you can return to for many years to come.

What our clients say.....

*"​Well what can I say about our Wedding at LaValla... I just want to say on behalf of myself, Alex and all of our guests... WOW!!!

From the initial consultation and walk around the property to the day I picked up all my paraphernalia afterwards, we were blown away by everything and fell in love immediately! Bernie, Dolly, Michelle and David were THE most amazing team to deal with and we couldn’t have wished for a better day. From start to finish, we laughed, we cried (I think I even saw some tears from Michelle and Dolly during the speeches :-) haha!) we danced, we ate, we drank and we slept... and all under this amazing "roof". We couldn’t have wished for a better day!

EVERYTHING was on point and just perfect! DAVID - you cooked us THE most amazing food (as usual) which I know will be one of the talking points for many years to come! Michelle and your team - you guys were amazing. Dolly and Bernie - you really did keep me grounded and there were no signs of Bridezilla at all during my planning because I knew that you guys always had my back! Even with the impending weather, nothing was going to spoil our day!

LaValla, you have a sign on your Bar.... "Enter as Strangers - Leave as Friends" and you could not have chosen a better motto! We truly love everything about your venue. The food, surroundings, and most of all the STAFF! Actually, they aren’t staff, they are FRIENDS! Looking forward to many many more delicious meals there xx"* - Alex and Lindsay
