Why Book with us?

Outdoor Wedding Reception

Use your imagination to transform the many outdoor spaces available to you at Chateau Nesbit. Choose to host an intimate elopement around the dining table under the chandelier or utilise the long courtyard to host a larger group. Line up trestle tables to create an extended long dining space for your guests to congregate around, enjoying food, drinks, and conversation. Alternatively, you can arrange smaller tables to group guests together in a more intimate way. However you choose to position your guests, there is plenty of room to work with at Chateau Nesbit. 

Establish areas for your bar or dessert servery and create designated lounge areas for intimate gatherings. We can advise on the ideal locations for live entertainment, dancefloors, cocktail bars, or mobile beauty rooms. The only limit to how you can utilise the space is your own imagination. We can’t wait to hear about your ideas and help you bring them to life.

An undercover outdoor area is available for you to use for dining or dancing. Whether you prefer to stay covered or need a wet weather alternative, this outdoor space is ideal for transferring your dining furniture to at the last minute. The space is a blank canvas to transform the way you like it. Use your imagination or employ the expertise of an events designer to decorate the area to suit your wedding theme and aesthetic.
