An extraordinary community effort has brought the once tired old Curban Hall back to life. But have you heard of Curban? Be honest, you haven't and that's okay. You should definitely have the Curban hall on your radar if you're thinking of having a quintessential country wedding!
Recent renovations and updates allow for modern comforts such as reverse cycle heating/cooling without losing any country charm.
Outside the hall you'll find a well looked after garden and lawn, tennis courts and an enviable lawn area. The hall itself is wrapped in corrugated iron on the outside and lined with a white tin sheeting on the inside to act as a blank canvas for event styling. The Curban Hall is gorgeous and my words don't do it any justice. There is plenty of space to style the perfect wedding at this venue.
Take a look at a shoot we did out there with some great local suppliers to show you some options for your wedding.

Mudgee is known for its trendy cafes and elaborate cellar doors that draw in tourists by the thousands each year. To capitalise on this accommodation providers seem to have increased costs, meaning for basic accommodation you can pay anything from $80 plus for a basic ensuite room at a below average motel.
But tell me this- Why would you want to pay for a less than impressive room when you can stay in luxury for the same cost? That’s right, I’ve done a little searching and found you all a great deal.
Introducing Cawarra Guesthouse!
This guesthouse exudes luxury which is the perfect way to compliment your Mudgee experience. Built in 1866, this historic home boasts generous king sized beds, a divine kitchen and gorgeous gardens.
Cawarra Guesthouse is owned and run by Mudgee locals, John and Karen Guest. Karen is a true believer in the charm of a good country wedding and has an amazing offer for readers of The Rural Bride- a discounted rate for guests booking for 3 nights or longer!! So, those of you on the hunt for wedding accommodation in Mudgee, I strongly suggest you make the most of this offer and extend your stay.

The Armatree hotel has enough rooms to comfortably sleep 20 people. That’s an entire bridal party plus other half’s’ right there and guests can easily find accommodation in nearby Gulargambone or Gilgandra. Ok great, so that’s accommodation sorted.
What next? How about a ceremony and reception area?
The Armatree Hotel has an abundance of space for marquees or outdoor seated ceremonies and receptions. And, as if that wasn’t enough- by the end of 2015 there will be a new weatherproof area out the back of the hotel able to seat between 60-80 people. I think we can safely say that area is sorted.
How about watering the guests?
To date there is no per head cost established for drinks, however drinks packages are easily able to be arranged with Lib or Ash in advance of the wedding. As for catering, the hotel does offer catering options depending on the desired menu and number of guests. Obviously being a pub in a tiny town they are not going to be able to cater for 1000 people. If however, you have a caterer in mind and really would love to use them for your big day there will be no resistance from the hotel. Private caterers are allowed full use of the hotel kitchen from equipment to cutlery ad crockery as long as they are bringing the produce for the meals.
