The Pavilion by the lake provides a spacious area for your wedding reception.

Weddings at Branell are made affordable because rather than charging per person for food and alcohol, they charge a flat rate to hire the venue, enabling couples to create affordable, low-cost weddings. The bride and groom are given the freedom to organise their own wedding day, own suppliers for catering, alcohol etc.  This means the couple have the entire use of the 80 acre property, the Homestead and Pavilion for a couple of days, to turn the property into their unique dream wedding. There are many different ways to set up the Wedding Pavilion – Branell have a few examples of different floor plans that have been used in the past on their website to help you plan your Branell wedding.
