The Vintage Wedding Expo at Château Élan
Château Élan and The Vintage will host The Vintage Wedding Expo on Saturday 22nd May to celebrate the completion of their new wedding venue, The Carriage House and showcase their other popular wedding venue locations; the Summer House, Barrington Room and the Fairway Lawn.
These state-of-the-art spaces for weddings from 3 to 170, offer the sort of ‘wow factor’ that can only come from a luxury resort in prestige wine country. Of these, the new Carriage House will be unique. Constructed from sandstone cut by convicts in 1834, this striking venue featuring gables and gothic windows is a fitting backdrop for the most exclusive of weddings. Wedding guests will also be spoilt for choice at Château Élan with accommodation ranging from Spa Suites, Spa Kings and One-Bedroom Spa Villas.
The Expo, which will take place from 10am until 3pm, will showcase the best of Hunter Valley wedding suppliers and event specialists to brides-to-be from Newcastle to Sydney. Potential grooms are not forgotten with complimentary golf lessons and access to The Vintage driving range. Mini-spa treatments, delicious food, entertainment and the wonderful ambience of the picturesque Hunter Valley will ensure love is truly in the air!
