"This is an absolutely amazing property, a hidden gem in the Yarramalong valley, that cannot be recommended highly enough!!
We were married at Fernbank in October 2011, and so many of our guests commented on the lovely farm and the beautiful (heritage-listed) guest house that the bridal party were able to stay in the night before the wedding. From the moment we met Meg (the owner of the property), we knew that we would be very well looked after in every possible aspect! The house is immaculate, with many many beautiful areas to sit, enjoy and relax. Meg has everything just right!
It's difficult to describe just how special the inside of the house is - it's full of tastefully decorated bedrooms with French detail throughout, from the king size main bedroom with matching linen and wallpaper through to the most beautiful hallway, with crystal chandeliers and gilded mirrors. The other bedrooms also feature antique furniture with very comfortable beds, lots of wardrobe space, and ceiling-length windows for views of the landscaped gardens.
The kitchen is home-style and comfortable (with all modern conveniences of course!) and can seat about 10 people, or there is a formal dining room and grand piano for a more sophisticated dinner if you choose. There is a great log fire that we used all throughout the day (Meg even lit it when we hadn't time before the wedding), and central heating/aircon. It's so easy here to ignore all technology, but there are TVs in the rooms and the loungeroom has a large plasma TV too.
Stunning though it is, the homestead is only a small part of your experience at Fernbank. This farm is not your typical "two paddocks and a shed". From the gazebo overlooking the dam, to the fort for the kids and stunning walks over rolling green hills, you too will fall in love with Fernbank the moment you pass through the gates.
I would highly recommend Fernbank to 2-3 couples or a small family wanting a fantastic week or weekend away from the stress and rush of city life - go and collect your own eggs, play some tennis, have a swim, ride horses nearby, and just relax in the beautiful gardens and house. We will be back for our anniversary with the bridal party, hopefully every year!"
"On behalf of the Emery and Shelley families I would like to say a big “THANK YOU”
For all the hard work and special extras you provided and for making Abi and Luke’s Wedding Day so special.
So many of our friends and family have told us that “It’s the Best Wedding we have ever been to”.
We very much appreciate all that you did for us.
Hopefully we will one day be invited to a wedding at Fernbank Farm and get to enjoy it all again."

"Now that we have had time to both enjoy and reflect on our wedding day, Jaycine and I wanted to pass on a note to thank you so much for affording us the opportunity to put it on at Fernbank Farm.
From the moment we first checked out the farm on the website, we knew it was perfect for what we were after and when we came out to get your guided tour, we were sold. An idyllic location that made you feel like you were miles away from everything that had it all – rural charm with all of the style, elegance and luxury that we were after.
By no means was it just the venue that was special, the advice and support that you provided us was also a key to making the day a success and over and above this, your range of props allowed us to truly bring our vision to life. And for all of the work that you did on the day, we are eternally grateful, you allowed us to enjoy the day and ensured that it ran seamlessly from beginning to end.
We’ve attached a few photos that hopefully capture some of what made our day so wonderful and to demonstrate why everyone has been raving about the day and the venue.
Fernbank Farm is truly a credit to you and we wish you all the best with what promises to be an exciting future and for brides and grooms to be – the search is over!
Thank you Meg!"

"We would like to thank you for all of your help throughout the planning of our daughter Evelyn and son Andrew’s wedding.
It was a wonderful day and we believe it was thanks to you. "
- With love from the Munoz and Dittmer families.
"A thank you can can barely say all we felt that magic day.
A heartfelt thanks is sent to you for your thoughtful gift and wishes too! Thank you for the precious memories.
We recently celebrated our wedding at Fernbank Farm and we would love to thank Meg for making the day so magical. The venue looked fantastic and our stay in the houses was so comfortable. Meg was so accommodating in incorporating our ideas and decorations and worked tirelessly to create the vintage garden party theme we were aiming for. The property is truly an ideal wedding venue. Thank you for the precious memories."
