Marriage Services

We offer a choice of ceremony’s to suit your budget and needs. If you require an additional service to one that is not below please contact us as we offer bespoke services too.


Congratulations you have decided to get married. You have made the decision to elope and want or need everything done for you. The following 3 day plan is offered as an option, which includes food and accommodation.

Day one; On arrival at Hewitts Homestead you will be offered a complimentary glass of wine. I will show you around the grounds and go over your ceremony with you – this involves me finding out about you as a couple.  Dinner is included for you – a home cooked meal.  You relax in your own room with sitting area overlooking the garden.  

Day two; A relaxing morning, come down for a continental breakfast when you are ready. Take all the time you need getting ready for your wedding day.  Choose flowers from the garden for a button hole and small bouquet (if available). At an agreed time we will start your ceremony and you become the person you always wanted to be; the husband/wife of your beloved.  We celebrate with an afternoon tea or light lunch, and champagne.  Spend the remainder of the day sitting, strolling, walking with each other and delight in each others company.   Dinner is included on the evening.  

Day three; Wake up as the new you with your husband/wife by your side and dream of the future.  Come down for a continental breakfast when you are ready.  You have the morning to decide what you will do on your first full day as a married couple.  We wish you well and wave you goodbye.   Vanessa & Phil

Simple Ceremony

Based on short registry weddings I offer my beautiful garden to you. If it is raining or cold I also have a wedding reception room available. Please be aware that this ceremony is scripted and will not be altered. Click here for a copy of the ceremony. There’s no rehearsal and no meeting before hand – just as you wouldn’t with a registry office, you simply turn up with your guests. You will need two witnesses. I am happy to accommodate up to 15 guests here at Hewitts Homestead. I look forward to hearing from you.
