Sandy Hill consists of a gorgeous pine tree forest with an incredible old gumtree tree that is truly spectacular. A perfect place to say ”I do” with your other half in front of your nearest and dearest. 

The team at Sandy Hill specialise in elopements and small weddings allowing a maximum of 30 people. We would love to help create your wedding dreams right here with gorgeous photo opportunities and memories to be made. 

Venue History

Sandy Hill Forest is on our family farm. I’ve had so many people over the years say how lucky we are to live here. I have always had a passion for weddings. After losing my husband in 2019 from Cancer I was looking for something to keep my brain busy. 

My wedding day was the best day of my life. 

In my forest we have this amazing gum tree amongst the pines. I decided I wanted to have a go at doing elopement weddings and micro weddings up to 30 people. It was definitely one of the best decisions I have made.  It is such a pleasure to have hosted so many lovely couples weddings in the last 1.5 years ❤️


Beautiful private forest location for Elopements and Micro weddings up to 30 people.
