Bimbadgen Palmers Lane Wedding
Venue: Bimbadgen Palmers Lane
As a wedding photographer, I have shot countless weddings at Hunter Valley wedding venue Bimbadgen Palmers Lane over the past 2-3 years. With many on the calendar for 2022, with some days back to back, I guess you could say I know Bimbadgen Palmers Lane better than most.
I first discovered this gorgeous Hunter Valley spot when I was booked by Elisse & David for their October 27th 2018, wedding. Having known of Bimbadgen Esca only, I wasn't aware of Palmers Lane. And with good reason, Elisse & David's wedding was the first wedding the venue was to hold. Fast-forward and Bimbadgen Palmers Lane has now become one of the most sought after wedding venues in Pokolbin.
If you want total privacy with venue exclusivity on your wedding day, Bimbadgen Palmers Lane is a fantastic option. Palmers Lane offers everything all in one place, including onsite accommodation, a few ceremony & reception options too.
Palmers Lane lends itself to a more relaxed, informal style wedding. But in saying that can also with the proper styling be quite glossy & formal. I find many couples who book me resonate with its sophisticated, classic features blended with modern minimalism. And many of the couples that get married at this venue are more set on the relaxed, less traditional vibe.
With two main ceremony options, Bimbadgen has two very contrasting spots. First, on the hill in the shade of the trees, looking out towards the Broke mountain range. The other spot is the pontoon over the dam. Both locations offer amazing, picturesque scenes & unobstructed views.
In terms of wedding receptions, Bimbadgen offers both inside & outside options. With their crisp white, long reception room with high ceiling & dark timber beams, a beautiful mix of rustic charm & modern minimalism and then there's the contrasting outdoor option under the festoon lights on the lawn overlooking the vines. With a fire pit area & outdoor bar. A space that creates a fantastic atmosphere & setting for any Hunter Valley wedding. The venue seats up to 130 guests inside quite comfortably. And for larger wedding receptions, the outdoor setting under the night sky & golden glow of the festoon lights is excellent. Palmers Lane also can add a marquee onsite for those bigger weddings, where guests numbers are much higher.
FOOD & WINE
The amazing Esca Bimbadgen restaurant team offers in-house catering, with many awards to their name and world-class Bimbadgen wines.
The Esca Bimbadgen restaurant team can cater for a wide array of weddings & menu options. Creating a more comfortable, family-style atmosphere from a relaxed cocktail style to a more formal sit-down, multi-course dinner, or share style dishes.
Bimbadgen Palmers Lane offers quite a few accommodation options.
The Guesthouse, is the perfect Bride or Groom prep location. With four bedrooms, lounge, dining areas & large kitchen it's everything you could need all onsite at Palmers Lane. In addition, you are surrounded by nature, amazing views of the mountains, outdoor alfresco area & pool.
The next accommodation option is The Homestead.
This large property sleeps 8 & is still super close to everything. With excellent views, an entertaining outdoor area, a swimming pool, & many other unique features, this place is also a perfect option for Bride or Groom prep. It can also be a great option if your family is travelling to have somewhere to stay nearby for your wedding.
A few meters from The Homestead sits The Cottage, a smaller but nicely laid out accommodation option that sleeps 4. It shares the outdoor area and pool with The Homestead, boasting the same gorgeous Hunter Valley views over the vineyards.
