Address & contact details
There are a number of wonderful areas that couples can utilise on The Ranch. The charismatic Barn under festoons or fairy lights is the perfect place for a reception, or there's a vast open space surrounded by hills for those couples who prefer a marquee, tipi or sperry tent.
There are a numerous ceremony options, including a beautiful sandstone chapel and a rotunda looking over the whole property.
The Ranch can also accommodate up to 150 guests in its cosy log cabins.
A wedding planner is not included.
The Ranch is completely DIY, so couples can completely do it their way!
They can choose their own caterers, so if they want food trucks – they can have food trucks. Every couple wants something different and The Ranch offers couples the flexibility to utilise and style the space to their needs and desires.
For those couples who want help, we also offer setup packages and prop hire options.
