Wallalong House is a Hunter Valley wedding venue located just out of the gorgeous town of Morpeth, two hours north of Sydney in the Hunter Valley NSW. The house is surrounded by 200-year-old fig trees at the ceremony site, with elevated country views and complete privacy.
The moment your guests walk through the gates of Wallalong House the tone is set for an idyllic weekend wedding celebration.
As the iron gates open, your eyes are drawn along the pear-tree-lined driveway to the 1830's sandstone stables with original cobblestone flooring and decorative iron rails, purchased from the Crystal Palace Exhibition auction in London in 1854.
Sitting proudly amongst four massive two-hundred-year-old fig trees, with breathtaking elevated views of the surrounding farmland, Wallalong House is the perfect location for a couple wanting complete privacy on their wedding day.
Wallalong House is located ten minutes from the gorgeous historic town of Morpeth, an easy two hours north of Sydney in the Hunter Valley NSW. There are extensive accommodation and transport choices for wedding guests in surrounding areas.

The grounds of the Estate feature antique wooden daybeds, french iron chairs and tables sprinkled on the lawns, four 200-year-old fig trees that line the front of the property where the Ceremonies are held, an in-ground pool nestled on the edge of the Indian tent where the Receptions are held, and a splendid mix of Georgian and Victorian architecture.
Jess Dunbar & Matt Price, of the Australian musical duo Jess & Matt, first met at music college, where they became best friends before it quickly turned into a relationship.
They exchanged vows on the grounds of Wallalong House in the Hunter Valley, where they would later host their evening reception. 'We really wanted to have a getaway weekend where our guests could come and let their hair down and stay out of town. The Hunter Valley is still so close to our home Sydney, but really feels like a different world from the city and youâ€™re transported to some of the most stunning landscapes weâ€™ve ever seen.'
Jess says they chose the very first venue they visited. 'We didnâ€™t even need to say the words to each other â€“ we both knew. It had everything we could have wanted.'
Their evening reception was hosted in the elegant marquee at Wallalong House.
'We wanted the light to be warm to match the relaxed vibe in the room. We knew we always wanted a cocktail wedding that focused on a party vibe where everyone interacted and wasnâ€™t separated. We love that people arenâ€™t forced to sit with whomever we place them with; it encourages people to mingle and meet new people.'
