Barn 1890 Wedding Photographer

Situated in the heart of McLaren Vale wine district, Barn 1890 is a tranquil wedding venue for couples who want an easy-going, intimate wedding with class!

Barn 1890 Wedding Venue

Barn 1890 is a large, beautifully restored, rustic nineteenth-century stone barn nestled in the foothills on 3 acres of land amid century-old gum trees, vineyards, and ocean views.

With wide open fireplaces, a mezzanine, many rustic details, and its barn owl, it makes a perfect reception venue, adaptable across the spectrum from simple and charming to elegant and formal.

The wide barn doors make it easy for guests to spill out onto the patio, play games on the lawn, or enjoy the open air.


Sea Vines Cottage offers authentic onsite accommodation before and after your special wedding day - a perfect setup! From the 1850s, the romantic stone cottage provides luxury and privacy in a peaceful country setting.

There are many alfresco options for a delicious brunch from the well-stocked kitchen or a lazy hour or two with a book in a hammock, surrounded by native birds. In summer, you can unwind on the verandah under the hanging lilac, sipping a riesling as the sun sinks into the ocean with a gourmet cheese platter. In winter, you can relax in the claw-foot bath and cuddle in front of an open fire with champagne and chocolates before heading to the queen-sized bedroom for some couple time.

Weddings can be sit down or cocktail, depending on your needs

Ceremonies are on the shaded lawn area, and there are a lot of old-style wooden chairs and couches, giving the country boho feels.

The Catering

Barn 1890's have a range of caterers. The caterers for this wedding provided a hearty, delicious, plentiful and well-presented feast that wowed the guests! Ask your host what food van they would recommend. Not all food-vans are equal!

There are a lot of photo opportunities for this venue. Of course, the Barn is a good backdrop, but so is the vineyards, the cottage gardens, the shaded areas and a row of olive trees near the car park.

Here's what Sam had to say about her experience with Barn 1890

"We could not be more delighted to hold our wedding at this stunning location. A true hidden gem of a wedding location! It was all we could have wanted and more. The onsite accommodation, the stunning gardens with many spots for great photographs, the views over the vineyards next door helped make it a magical place. We could not have picked a better location in Adelaide."

The hosts

The owners, Lee and Colin, are very attentive to the needs of the couple and guests. I especially loved how Lee was caring and thoughtful to the bride and helped her in any way she could in a very calm and easy-going manner.
