I have spend a bit of time in the Hunter Valley over the years, as a good friend moved to the area 20+ years ago to have her own patch of organic veggies. I have been fortunate to visit their little farm and even at times looking after the crop, chickens and horses while they were away. While they have downsized and moved slightly closer to Newcastle, I always have a bed to bunk in after a Hunter Valley wedding. That means there are no travel fees associated with me photographing weddings in the Hunter Valley.
Here is a list of some of the best Hunter Valley wedding venues, with most having the ability to host both the ceremony & reception all in one place, which makes for a stress-free wedding day.
