About Bendooley Estate

Bendooley Estate in the Southern Highlands is a little bit different; a place with genuine country warmth and intimate elegance where you can truly celebrate your special day.

Our historic book barn has been transformed by an award-winning architect into a magical event space. It retains the original exposed wooden beams with high ceilings to house our thousands of books, but it also now incorporates a huge hand-cut sandstone fireplace, bridal suite and large French doors opening to a beautiful courtyard, garden and vineyard.

Bendooley Estate has a stunning location to suit each aspect of your wedding: the ceremony, the signing of the register, the wedding photographs, and the reception. We have the perfect space for any type of celebration, from an informal gathering of 18 to a celebration for up to 200.

The team at Bendooley Estate understand weddings can be stressful and time-consuming, so we provide an all-inclusive venue that gives you and your guests the opportunity to celebrate and enjoy your special day. Contact Bendooley Estate to arrange your own private viewing.

Words can’t express how grateful we are that you were so helpful and accommodating to ensure that we had a most memorable wedding despite the weather! It meant so much to us that we could get married in your beautiful homestead. The guests are still raving about the Boston Ivy and of course, the stunning, yet cosy book barn! It was simply perfect! Thank you again.

Thank you for being so accommodating to Joe, myself and our family and friends on our wedding day. You have a truly magnificent property and the day could not have been more beautiful. A particular thank you to Katja for your kindness and warm hospitality.

We just wanted to say that our wedding at Bendooley Estate was simply amazing. Thank you for your generosity regarding the venue, all our guests were so impressed with the location, food and of course, the stunning book barn itself. Even our photographer loved the venue. He can’t wait to shoot another wedding at Bendooley Estate. There are just so many beautiful backdrops for photos. Shelley and Mark were very professional and nothing was too much trouble for them. We had the best time. We couldn’t have asked for more and thank you for the little touch of the gorgeous books. Once again, many thanks. Kindest regards,

Our wedding was a dreamy fairytale from start to finish, our wedding photos are spectacular with so many memorable locations. Thank you to the Berkeleuw family for their care and attention.

What a day! Thank you to Shelley, Mark, Paul and everyone at Bendooley Estate for such an amazing wedding. The hours of hard work and organisation paid off with so many of our guests commenting on how beautiful the space was, as well as the friendliness and attentiveness of your staff on the night. We couldn't have been happier. A special thank you to Shelley, for your part in organising for Gareth's friends cut outs to be placed inside the Barn, what a surprise! We'll definitely be back - can't wait. Bendooley Estate will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you so much, we had such an amazing night and so did our guests. We have had so many people raving about the food and the service you provided on the night.....It made our wedding. Thank you also for all the help in the lead up, I hope I wasn't too painful to deal with. Thanks again to Shelley, Mark and all the staff at Bendooley Estate. Rachel and Gareth

Hi Paul and Andrew, Marie and I would like to say thank you so much to you and your team for such a great day/night last Saturday and for allowing us to have our wedding at Bendooley Estate. The service was flawless, the crew was fantastic, Shelley, Mark and Sam did a brilliant job with our guests and assured the night ran smoothly. The gardens and the book barn looked incredible, our guests were so amazed at the venue and the food was most delicious. Thank you again. We'll definitely drop in for lunch sometime.

Dear Mark and Shelly, I cannot thank you both enough for the wonderful wedding we had on Friday night. Your attention to detail and service was beyond anything I could have imagined. All your staff were exceptional. The venue, food and vibe was outstanding. I was so proud to have had our sons wedding at Bendooley Estate and I'm sure all of our guests were very impressed. Thank you Mark for ensuring everything was perfect and looking after me to make sure that I was OK (and of course I was) and thank you to Shelly for looking after the boys beforehand and organising our transport at the end of the night, when we thought we may have been left behind. I could go on and on with praise and I have been telling everyone that I wish we could do it all again this weekend. More importantly Ben and Beck had a memorable night to start their married life and I'm sure that was due to The Book Barn and particularly the two of you. We've already decided with some friends to come visit and have lunch their in the near future. Thank you once again for a wonderful night.

By Mick and Julia, on 05 Mar 2014

G'day Mark & Paul, Just a quick note to say thank you again for having us on the weekend. We couldn't be happier with how well our wedding went on Saturday and we have had nothing but compliments about your amazing venue at Bendooley along with the food! Mark your help was excellent too, it went very well and you gave us a lot of confidence in knowing the day was going so smoothly - the staff were great too. We were very lucky with the weather also which just added to our special day. Thanks again and will drop back in for lunch one day in the near future to say g'day.

Stunning Barn!

I have just had a look at the amazing barn at Bendooley Estate, as we are wanting a country wedding near Sydney. The barn is amazing and it will seat all our guests - we haven't finalised numbers but it will be more than 120! It will be the perfect venue and the food sounds amazing!
