Sarah and Sam

Sarah and Sam held their beautiful reception with us in our stables paddock on the farm. Hiring a clear roofed marquee, they danced the night away under the stars. The highlight of the night was the DJ/saxophonist duo who got everyone out of their seats and boogieing till the cows came home!

Weddings in the Paddock

The stables paddock at the Collingwood Children's Farm is a beautiful place for a wedding. With views to the yarra river, a starry night sky and a border of gum trees your guests will feel a million miles away from the city. We recommend a Marquee, Tipi or Sperry Tent as Melbourne's weather should never dampen your day!

Marquee

We highly recommend getting a marquee big enough to seat all your guests as well as space for a dancefloor and bar. If the weather's perfect these can be outside but it's always good to have backup space if it rains. Flooring and lighting complete the look and ensure guests will be comfortable all night long. 

Price Guide: 

Marquee 10m x18m with clear walls and roof (seats up to 150 guests) : $4100

Timber flooring: $2800

Lighting: $780

Dancefloor: $390

We recommend Dom at Marquee Monkeys

Tipis

Looking for something a bit different? How about a Tipi! Placed together you can create any floorplan you wish and leave all the sides open to truly embrace the outdoors. Don't forget to include festoon lighting around the edges, it's an absolute must!

We recommend Scotty at Tipi Tipi

Price Guide:

Double tipi with flooring and a dancefloor (upto 120 guests): $5000

Triple tipi with flooring and a dancefloor (Upto 140 guests): $6900

 

Sperry Tents

Stunning handcrafted ‘Sperry’ sailcloth tents, with a sweeping canopy supported by natural wooden poles, create a signature look that conveys both elegance and romance. Sought after across the world, Sperry Tents add a special element to any outdoor event.

We recommend Under Sky

Price guide:

10m x 20m "Oyster" tent (Seats upto 150): $6000

Woven mat flooring: $800

Lighting: $800

Toilets

Absolutely essential for any paddock wedding, nearby toilets are a thoughtful and convenient addition so guests don't miss a moment of your big day. Prices start from $800 for clean and pretty mens and womens bathrooms

We recommend Black Tie Toilet Hire

STYLING AND HIRE

We have an extensive range of gorgeous vintage and industrial styling equipment available to hire. Ask your event planner for ideas and advice as we love making each wedding as stylish and pretty as possible!

We know what works at the farm and pride ourselves on adding those little details like beautiful signage and twinkly lights to create a feeling of warmth and celebration.

Pro Tips About Wedding Photography - 2

In the second of the two-part series we talk to one of our favourite wedding photographers Timothy Marriage about how to go about choosing a photographer, what you should expect and how much it costs. After the wedding is all over, the photos are the main tangible remaining memory. Plus you will spend most of the day with your photographer, so its important to make sure you 'click' (no pun intended!). Tim is great fun and also super organised and responsive - take it from us, that's a winning combination!

Margaret Fulton's Chocolate Truffles

These truffles are super easy and can be made well in advance - perfect for Christmas gifts! Pop into a cute jar or lolly bag and they are ready to go, just store in the fridge between when you make them and when you want to give them. They're fun to make with little ones (you can leave out the alcohol if you're doing this!), although expect plenty of chocolatey little hands and a dusting of cocoa over the entire kitchen.

Healthy Roast Pumpkin & Chickpea Salad with Dukkah and Tahini Yoghurt Dressing

Fans of our Super Salad will know we love our healthy meals in a bowl. This recipe is great for a quick and healthy lunch that is also full of flavour, and most importantly uses ingredients you probably already have in the fridge.

Quantities for this recipe are all approximate, the other beauty of this recipe is that its very forgiving, and suits those of us with a 'bucket chemist' approach to cooking. Feel free to vary it based on the number you're feeding, what you have on hand or just personal taste.

Pirate Biscuits - AKA Homemade Choc Wheatens

These are the ultimate go-to biscuit - incredibly easy, relatively good for you, and perfect with a cup of tea. Better yet, in un-chocolated form they are a classic plain biscuit that are ideal for kids playing pirate ships who want some authentic-looking (but undoubtedly better tasting) snacks.

Nanna's Maltese Ricotta Cheese Pie

Flaky pastry. Warm cheesy filling flavoured with fresh herbs. Sounds good right? This traditional Maltese dish is one of the most comforting winter warming dishes we're super excited to have on special in the cafe this season.

Ten Minute Mandarine Loaf Recipe

This mandarine loaf is hands down one of the simplest, most delicious cakes around. The honey plus the lack of eggs or butter makes it less 'cakey', giving a sticky, slightly chewy texture.

The perfect afternoon tea morsel fresh out of the oven, its also great a day or two later toasted, and its easily made in about 10 minutes plus cooking time.
