Caversham House Weddings by Swan Valley Wedding Celebrant
Caversham House is nestled on the bank of the Swan River in Caversham just 10 minutes from Perth and would be one of the most spectacular wedding destination in Australia.
One of the amazing benefits of choosing Caversham House for your wedding is the fact they have some wonderful areas within the grounds to have your wedding ceremony. These include the Hidden Gardens, Gazebo and the Colonnade and now they have just purpose built a new undercover Wedding Ceremony building. However the favourite of past brides is the Hidden Gardens that has a large walkway and stairs leading down to the river.
Many brides even arrive by a boat on the Swan river and then walk up a magnificant boardwalk past the waterfall to the wedding ceremony or reception.
Old World Charm:
The original house was built in 1835 and in the 1960’s was transformed into the Swan Valley’s first Reception centre. Being family owned, in 2005 the house underwant some further changes with a blend of French and contemporary style refurbishments. Large French provincial doors and Crystal pendants where added.
Since then the family has grown Caversham House into one of Perth’s best Wedding Venues and today caters for hundreds of weddings a year with a very strong reputation for great food, service and of course “atmosphere”.
Lets Hide in the Gardens:
The Hidden Gardens is what Caversham House is renowned for and you can use either the steps or the riverbank for your ceremony. The Hidden gardens steps has a majestic walkway leading to it where the bride can really make an entrance up or down the stairs.
This makes for a wonderful Wedding Ceremony on the steps: picture the guests sitting on chairs on the grassed area looking up to the steps with your bridal party standing on each level of the step and the bride and groom on the middle level: stunning.
One of the most memorable parts of the Wedding Ceremony is the entrance. At Caversham house the bride can walk along the walkway and then down the steps: As a Perth Marriage Celebrant, performing almost 1000 weddings, some of my most memorable weddings at Caversham house have been witnessing this entrance.
Both of these options are stunning and breathtaking in their own right: you choose…
When you hear “Caversham house” many people think of the magnificently large and stunning waterfall in the Hidden Gardens. Photographers love to use this as a backdrop to the wedding photos as your guests enjoy the great service from the Caversham staff with pre-dinner drinks on the verandah of the house or in the Colonade area of the marquee.
With 2 wonderfully appointed rooms for the reception, you can then join your guests after for the wedding celebration in one of 2 rooms and party the night away with great food, service, drinks and above all atmosphere that Caversham House has a great reputation for.
They also regularly have Wedding deals such as their Winter Wedding deals and you can visit them most days for a look around.
Each year as part of the Swan Valley Wedding Open day, Caversham House also showcase their lovely venue on the Swan Valley Open day which is usually in the beginning of July.
