With an air of peace and tranquility, beautiful gardens and
a rural outlook, Rosebank Estate Winery offers a stunning
setting for your wedding day. It has become the venue of
choice for discerning brides looking for an elegant venue,
says owner Ernest Glad. "It is a place where guests leave with
compliments and good memories about the unique occasion,
food and venue."
Rosebank caters for indoor or outdoor, formal or informal
weddings, with a variety of function facilities. There is a range
of menus and wine options available, so the occasion can be
tailor-made to suit your requirements.
Set amongst an array of sculptures, the upgraded and
extended garden creates an elegant setting for a stunning
outdoor ceremony, the perfect photo backdrop or great place
for guests to relax after the ceremony. Alternatively, you may
choose to have your photos taken at the Groynes Resort,
which is situated close by.
The venue can cater to weddings of any size, from an intimate
ceremony of around 10 to 40 people, to a larger crowd of 120
to 200 guests. The wedding facilities include a main function
room, a new marquee (which can be combined with the main
function room) and the newly renovated cottage - for smaller,
more intimate weddings.
The main function room is set in a classical French Provincial
wine cellar atmosphere, with barrels, French trellises, lighting
and high ceilings, creating a sophisticated environment for
the perfect reception, or even for the ceremony. It includes
a permanent dance floor and music system where up to 120
guests can enjoy themselves dancing all night.
For a more relaxed and informal occasion, the new marquee
can accommodate up to 120 guests and is also equipped with
music equipment, laser lighting and party lights, to create a
joyful atmosphere. The marquee is white and leans itself to be
easily made up according to the bride's wishes.
Ernest said the outdoor weddings can be arranged in the
gardens and many different locations have been chosen by
brides in the past. The new pond with its wooden bridge also
creates a special atmosphere.
The little chapel which has been hand-painted to create an
intimate ambiance with the guests seated comfortably around
the wedding couple, or on the adjoining patio. The chapel is a
unique setting for a fun ceremony and features real lead glass
windows and a bell to announce the most important day in
your life, he said.
"The chapel was built to give both a feeling of an elegant
ceremony, as well as the freedom of the outdoors
Rosebank can provide wedding decorations and has a
selection of furniture and linen combinations to suit most
tastes. The function organising team can advise on your
options for all decorations and accessory choices, including
glasses, cutlery, crockery and cake tables. When it comes
to dining, an exquisite wedding menu of buffet or a-la-carte
can be designed and tailored to suit the bride's and groom's
requirements and budget, along with a great selection of
wines at affordable prices.
"Come and see us and we will assist you in creating an
unforgettable event. We have a great album of past events for
