On I go with the list of Rustic Venues in SA. There are some more little beauties in this list.
I thought I was doing well after Part One and Part Two, but it actually seems that I have plenty more up my sleeve.
Here are another three venues that I think would be perfect for a Rustic Wedding or Event.
Pennys Hill, McLaren Vale:
Australiana at it's best! Penny's Hill is located in the gorgeous McLaren Vale region South of Adelaide. The site offers several function options, with the best wedding options probably being the 'Gedney Room' or the 'Stables' (complete with sawdust floor!) which hold 200 / 110 people respectively.. There is also a barn, but that only holds 12 people.
The surrounding paddocks help set the scene and supply a very rustic backdrop. It is one of those places that you could hold the whole wedding.. ceremony in the paddock, pre-dinner drinks for your guests in the cellar door, followed by a reception in one of the function areas. You can even spend your wedding night in their on-site accommodation!
I've been to wine festivals out here and it is such a great feel, sitting around on hay bales and sipping on fantastic shiraz. Mmm.

Wowsers!!! Check this place out!
Another winery, this time located in Kuitpo. I think I am in love... Go explore for yourself here: K1 Winery
I can totally imagine a wedding held on that deck overlooking the lake. And imagine the photo opportunities on that stunning property. I think they'd offer a pretty good drop of wine too!
They have a person's name there for Function Enquries, so I know they do functions, but that is all I know for now. Tell me what you find out!

Russell's Pizza, Willunga:
Moving away from wineries for a minute, I cant talk rustic venues without mentioning Russell's Pizza. I know a pizza place sounds like an odd choice for a wedding venue - but nah-uh, this place is COOL and an institution for locals.
I've actually been to a wedding here (as well as many dinners) which had such a laid back, relaxed feel, you couldnt help but have fun. And remember it! The venue totally contributed to that.
Russell's is a small stone cottage & out the back lies a large shed, along with outdoor areas - perfect for a function. A massive wood oven churns out delicious pizzas, topped with local gourmet ingredients.What could be more rustic than that?? If not for a wedding, at least get down there for dinner!
I'm not sure these pics do it justice. It is really, truly, very cool. And very workable as a space.
In the shed:
The pretty courtyard area outside the cottage.
Imagine serving this up to your guests, straight from the wood oven!?
On that note, I'm off to make some dinner!
You know what? I'm not finished! I can think of AT LEAST 5 more rustic venues. There is going to have to be a part four...and five. How exciting! Stay tuned for more loveli-ness.
