The owners of Thurlby Domain ARE super keen to have wedding ceremonies at their stunning property.   However, they have never wanted to advertise – which is why they don’t have a website.  For this reason, I haven’t listed their contact details publicly.  If you wish to get in touch with Thurlby Domain, please contact me by email at patrick@queenstown-wedding-blog.co.nz and I will send you the owner’s contact details.

ABOUT THURLBY DOMAIN

Thurlby Domain is a stunning historic property located between Queenstown and Arrowtown.  It is set in a semi-rural setting on the beautiful Speargrass Flat Road and is both private and peaceful.  (Note: Thurlby is private property. You must ask permission from the owners to use it).  Thurlby Domain is a surprisingly large property.  It consists of rambling forested grounds, a small pond and creek and the stone ruins of the old Hallenstein Homestead at one end.

The ruins are where most people choose to have their ceremony at Thurlby.  At the other end of the property are the wool-shed, the cow byre, the old stone stables.  The wool-shed is a wooden-floored corrugated iron walled/roofed barn and makes a stunning Reception Venue.  The stone stables make an ideal bad weather back up option for the ceremony.  Having said that, the majority of the ceremonies I have shot in the stables were in good weather.  In each of those cases, the bride and groom fell in love with the stables and decided to have the ceremony there anyway.To me Thurlby feels like  a rambling, long-lost English garden in a world where magic just might still exist.

VENUE FEES

As of July 2018, Revell and Vicki have finally updated their venue fees.  The new fees are $575 incl. GST for ceremony only or $3,450 incl. GST for Ceremony + Reception.  However, obviously double check the pricing and other details with Vicki when you check availability/book.

I haven’t posted Revell and Vicki’s contact details here for a reason.  This is because, while they love hosting wedding ceremonies at Thurlby, they don’t want their property too heavily promoted.  They feel (and I totally agree) that part of the beauty of Thurlby is the fact that it’s not a wedding factory and it’s kind of off the radar.  If you are keen to have your wedding ceremony at Thurlby Domain please contact me & I will happily tell you all about the place and pass on Revell and Vicki’s contact details.
