Finding your dream venue – Why Brown Brothers is a dream come true!


If you’re the kind of bride who is after a weekend wedding experience at a gorgeous venue with great wine and the ease of having the details taken care of, Brown Brothers is for you! This unique venue set in stunning grounds has a skilled team that takes the stress out of your hands… and instead hands you a glass of Brown Brothers wine! Today we’re featuring Jess + Chris’  modern + rustic DIY wedding which focused on “what people would remember – good food, good wine, good music!” This wedding beautifully showcases the way the venue comes to life in a unique way to you.

By far the best part ofJess and Chris’ wedding was that the day was an absolute reflection of them as a couple, from the décor to the atmosphere, every detail spoke to how much they love one another and their family and friends! Jess and Chris really made the most of the venue, using its natural beauty and complementing with lush greenery, candles and pops of colour throughout. The team at Brown Brothers met with them for planning meetings which focused on the understanding them as a venue understood their vision and could bring it all together!

This is what the bride and groom had to say:

It was a dream come true to be able to get married at Brown Brothers. We camp in Milawa every Easter and attend the Brown Brothers festival – we have always been absolutely in love with the barn. So it was really cool to have everyone drive to Milawa and stay in our favourite town – a glimpse into why we love it so much. The staff at Brown Brothers made sure the day was perfect – everything ran so seamlessly, and they even commented the day after how much they loved working our wedding. We definitely felt the love from them on the night. We cannot recommend Brown Brothers enough!

We talked with the talented Wedding Coordinator at Brown Brothers, Monique Smith, who looks after every bride and groom who walks through their doors!

Tell us about your favourite experience as a wedding coordinator for Browns? It’s hard to pinpoint a single favourite experience but my favourite moment is when the bride and groom enter the barn, they are so excited to celebrate with their family and friends.
