Sittella Winery is one of our personal favourite restaurants. At night when it is used as a reception centre it has been the venue for a family wedding and we loved the atmosphere. Whether you are planning a Swan Valley wedding or just looking for a great stop during a fun day out with family of friends, it is worth while enjoying a long lunch on the verandah overlooking the vineyard and the lake.
Weddings at Sittella Winery
Situated in the Swan Valley Belle Classic Limousines assist with many Sittella Winery weddings. There is always a thrill in the air when your wedding guests see the bridal car approaching along the road from their vantage near the gazebo.
If you are using the venue for your wedding consider which way you want the wedding cars to face in your wedding photos so the driver knows which entrance to use. The photo above entered through the top gate near the winery and the cars are positioned for the following photos.
If your wedding cars enter through the main gate you will have pastures in the background during your exit (from the front of the cars) or the back of the cars showing in a picture of the winery.
Either way, the cars can be rearranged by the chauffeurs for various pictures after the ceremony. For couples who choose and ‘all at one venue’ wedding ceremony and reception at Sittella Winery evening pre-reception drinks are often served on the lawn for your guests while the wedding party is off having feature photographs in the Swan valley.
Couples often comment how pleased they were with the service and venue when we are driving them to their end of night location from Sittella Winery.
Wedding car and limousine access
The architectural lines of the rammed earth restaurant and winery are well suited to classic and vintage wedding cars. Larger Chrysler wedding limos will need to do a multi-point turn to enter or leave the location via the northern access but this does not restrict their use. Larger limos parked in the grounds for an extended period do restrict the traffic flow through the driveway and the adjacent parking area. Large buses for guests will need to park on the verges across from the winery (a 100 – 200 meter walk).
Wedding photo locations
The winery itself, with the beautiful building, gazebo and grape vines down the slope to the lake is very picturesque. The Sittella Winery gates are also a popular photo location with classic wedding cars.
It is a short journey (400 meters) to Swan River and other valley locations a short drive away for spectacular wedding photography to complement those taken at the winery (see the photo below). Belle will do multiple trips to this photo location with your bridal party to save them walking. Bells Rapids is another popular photo location nearby (10-15 minutes each way).
Wine tasting and restaurant
Sittella Winery produce a wonderful range of quality wines. Their sparkling wines are a favourite of Sue at Belle Classic Limousines. The tasting room is well appointed with a range of condiments and trinkets for sale and the commentary about the wines is well informed.
The restaurant has a great menu and the balcony is a great place to spend a lazy lunch and enjoy a bottle of your favourite wine from the tasting.
