The Old Cheese Factory


Memories are created in inspired settings. Nestled in the pastoral region of Berwick is such a setting: the Old Cheese Factory, where beautiful gardens and historic buildings fill the landscape.

Nuptials are held in the wedding garden, which features a fairytale bridge, sparkling ponds and cottage gardens specifically planted to display dazzling colours throughout the year.

This garden is furnished with a signing table and 40 white Americana chairs, so your guests are free to choose to sit or stand during the ceremony.

Cars may be driven onto the property, where signs are found guiding guests where to go.

When booking gardens at the Old Cheese Factory a wet-weather venue is also booked as a precautionary measure, ensuring comfort and safety for all concerned.

Several wet-weather venues are available and staff members are pleased to advise on options, seating capacity and set-up. You can then choose your preferred venue.

You may choose to hold your ceremony indoors, regardless, and your booking automatically reserves the gardens for photos. Both venues are always booked together at no extra cost.

Our indoor ceremony area features red carpet running down the centre of the room, two stands with candelabras and guest seating. You are welcome to organise extra decorations if you wish.

Electricity for sound equipment is supplied to the wedding garden. Please remember to organise someone to operate them.


  • Seated Dining 100 guests
  • Cocktail Party 150 guests


The Old Cheese Factory is an ideal setting for taking photographs of your memorable occasion. We are pleased to offer the gardens for this sole purpose.
