I always love venturing down to Bowral to capture a beautiful Southern Highlands wedding. The whole region is beautiful all year round, and each season brings it’s own unique beauty to the area. If you’re considering having a Bowral wedding and Milton Park Country House as your wedding venue, then you are looking at one of the most beautiful spots you can get married in the highlands.

This wedding venue just outside of Bowral is steeped in history. A grand mansion built at the turn of the twentieth century it reads like a fairytale. It’s absolutely gorgeous all year around, with the change of seasons comes a new light on the whole place. As a wedding venue, Milton Park boasts a number of options to help bring any wedding dreams come to life.

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Wedding at Milton Park

  • Autumn is a special time in the Southern Highlands and especially at Milton Park. The amazing colours you can get definitely make up for any cold snaps you might have on your wedding day!
  • There are lots of church ceremony options for wedding ceremonies in the highlands. You can still have your beautiful reception and opt for a religious ceremony off-site.
  • It can often be cool even in the summer time. When planning your outfits make sure you have something warmer to wear over the top (especially for the bridal party).
  • Accommodation in the Bowral area can book out fast! Make sure you give yourself and your guests enough time to get accommodation organised when you are considering your wedding date for your Milton Park wedding.

Hi, I’m Jack Of Jack Chauvel Photography

As you can tell, I’m a big fan of weddings in the Southern Highlands area. I have wanted to photograph at Milton Park Country House Hotel & Spa and through availability I have unfortunately not been able to photograph a wedding there yet. I would absolutely love the chance to create some magic there, so if you are planning a wedding day there then I would love to hear from you.
