Laurelville – where generous hospitality meets elegance and style

Package details and booking conditions

Please contact us for our detailed venue information.

The Venue

Set on the side of Mt Brown overlooking York and the Avon Valley, Laurelville is a beautiful turn-of-the-century Edwardian two storey residence.  Set in three acres of gardens, Laurelville’s wide bullnosed verandahs, distinctive gables and elegant turrets provide the most romantic backdrop for your wedding day.

Your exclusive use of Laurelville and its grounds for the weekend enables us to provide the special care, attention and privacy you require.

Guests arrive on Friday afternoon in time for pre-dinner drinks and relaxation.

Spend an informal evening with your very special friends and family, with introductions for guests who may not have met before, or alternatively, spend the evening with your house guests and some last minute pampering before the big day.

We can provide a light supper or BBQ, or arrange for inhouse pampering services.

On Saturday, after a luscious Laurelville breakfast, the veranda suite provides total privacy for the bride’s preparations allowing you to have your hair and makeup done in your suite.  The large ensuite, bathed in natural light, has a convenient makeup chair and the sitting room has an oversize clothes rail to accommodate the wedding party outfits without crushing and an oversize dressing mirror so that you can check the full effect of your gown.  Soft lighting in the sitting room mirrors the effect of the evening lights at your reception.

A light lunch can be provided on Saturday.

The Ceremony

York’s beautiful churches and Laurelville’s three acres of gardens provide stunning settings for your ceremony.

The Reception

Reflecting your personal style, the reception can be held simply, with tables on the lawn ‘under the stars’ (a glorious option on one of York’s clear Spring or Autumn nights), or in a beautiful silk lined marquee complete with chandeliers.

You can choose from one of our pre-approved caterers and drinks are BYO, so you can have the reception options that you love at a price that you can afford.

Afterwards

On Sunday, take time to share the special memories with your family and friends over a late and leisurely Laurelville breakfast.

Accommodation

Laurelville has been completely refurbished by Kyla Colvin to create a beautiful, elegant and uniquely Australian country house destination. The supremely comfortable beds are fitted with fine Flaxfield New Zealand linen, luxury quilts and sumptuous Bemboka blankets made with angora and Australian merino wool.

Up to 4 children can be accommodated and babysitters can be arranged if requested.

Accommodation for guests outside the house can be arranged with a wonderful set of accommodation providers within York.
