Why we love it…
We love a country property, but there’s a fine line between an elegant hinterland space that spills with nostalgia and serenity, and one that all too literally says rustic farm. Greyleigh is a beautiful balance of contrast and infused with great design. Here you’ll find the nostalgic beauty of a rustic barn, transformed with modern architectural details. One of our favorite features (that doubles as a beautiful backdrop for editorial-inspired wedding pics) are the historic concrete silos from the 1800’s (owned by the property’s original dairy farmer) reimagined as modern cocktail lounges that wrap around modern fire places. It’s a place that offers a myriad of ceremony and reception options so no two wedding are ever the same – from The Gables, to whimsical botanical gardens that frame pathways and lead out to blank canvas locations.
For the couple…
Greyleigh is a wedding venue for couples wanting a hinterland venue on the NSW south coast that gives you a myriad of choice and feeling of complete seclusion with the logistical ease of everything contained in the one property and just a quick drive on the outskirts of Kiama. It’s for couples romanced by dreamy vistas of rolling hills and a wild ocean as their ceremony backdrop, without having to head overseas.
For us it’s always about balance and contrast, so this blank canvas hinterland space is best styled with elements that exaggerate an elegance and sense of barefoot luxury. Think flowers and candles en mass in the reception space to add warmth, softly draped linen that spills to the ground to soften the masculine surrounds… styling that steers clear of rustic or bohemian cliches but of course still ties in organically with the location.
