Venue Love… Solitaire Homestead


The South West offers so many stunning and unique wedding venues for every style, budget and taste. Being a makeup artist, we get to visit so many of these venues and fall in love time and time again. While South West brides are lucky to have so many stunning locations to choose from it can be quite overwhelming trying to decide. We wanted to help, and give you an insight into the popular Solitaire Homestead.

Solitaire Homestead is located between Yallingup and Dunsborough. The property is set on 110 acres of farmland surrounded by national parks and stunning beaches. Solitaire is a blank canvas. You have the opportunity to bring in all your preferred wedding vendors and create a wedding unique to you. Whether it be a BBQ wedding or an elaborate sit down meal, the options are endless.

We spoke with Kelly from Solitaire Homestead who shared some information and advice for future grooms and brides thinking about Solitaire for their big day.

What do you find most people fall in love with?

The most popular icon at Solitaire is the Shed. It’s a new space that we offer and it’s pretty amazing. The Shed is large enough to seat 120 people sit down and up to 200-300 Cocktail. It has a wonderful size lawn out front with large verandahs, fire pit and it even has a full apartment attached equipped with a Kitchen, Bathroom and 2 bedrooms. No one else has anything like it and it just ticks all the boxes.

What’s your favourite part about a wedding at Solitaire?

My favourite part about Solitaire are all my clients. I love working with so many different couples, all with different ideas and different tastes. Each weekend, the property transforms into something unique and special and I love that we can always change it up.

What makes Solitaire different to other venues?

Solitaire is different in many ways. We are a BYO venue, the clients choose their own caterers. The property is 110 acres offering different Ceremony spots that are separate to the Shed giving the feeling the clients have 2 locations even though no one has to leave the property. The Shed of course is what really sets us apart. Many people are looking for unique spaces to hold their receptions these days and the shed is definitely a unique space.

Any tips for brides and grooms?

My tips for the Bride and Groom are to have fun while planning your wedding. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and to talk to your suppliers. Not everything always goes to plan, and thats okay. There is always a solution.
