Bendooley Estate

Bendooley Estate is a gorgeous winery in the Southern Highlands, NSW and considered one of the premier estates for weddings in Australia. Home to both The Book Barn and more recently The Stables on site, there are multiple ceremony settings on site at Bendooley Estate to bring your dream wedding in the Southern Highlands to life! 

We are Translucent Photography, and as a Southern Highlands wedding photographer, Bendooley Estate is one of our favourite venues to photograph weddings at.

If you’re looking for images that show who you are, with no posed moments or awkward expressions

then you’ve come to the right place.



Bendooley Estate is a picture-perfect wedding venue, whether you choose to hold your wedding at The Book Barn or The Stables.

Bendooley Estate is a luxury, country wedding venue located in the beautiful quaint suburb of Berrima in the NSW Southern Highlands. Located 3.5km out of Bowral, and approximately a 90 minute drive south of Sydney CBD and 2 hour drive north from Canberra.

Bendooley Estate offers accommodation on site, making your wedding plans streamlined all being held at the one location. The Book Barn is the signature location that Bendooley Estate has on offer, with multiple ceremony options including the perfectly manicured Gardens, Lakeside Pavillion as well as the iconic Homestead. As day turns to night, receptions are held inside the Grand Barn, with walls lined by books and warmth from the fireplace.

The Stables at Bendooley Estate is a newer wedding option on site, set across the paddocks from The Book Barn. The Stables is a gorgeous rustic country barn, which screams rural luxury. Ceremony options at The Stables include the stunning water feature or the Barn itself. 

Bendooley Estate is one of our favourite Southern Highlands wedding venues, and it’s no surprise as to why. It’s a photographer’s paradise, whether you choose to hold your wedding at The Book Barn or The Stables.

The natural beauty of the Southern Highlands region is a massive drawcard for weddings, and a love of Bowral Wedding Photographers. With a plethora of rustic, country wedding venues, such as Bendooley Estate, the region comes to life across all seasons. From lush greens in the Spring & Summer, turning to stunning orange & red hues as the leaves change in Autumn & into Winter. If you’re lucky too, it does occasionally snow in Bowral in Autumn and Winter, which also provides another incredible element to the already diverse landscape and natural beauty of the Bowral region, making for breathtaking wedding photography, especially at beautiful venues like Bendooley Estate. For elopements and intimate weddings, Bendooley Estate caters for smaller celebrations also. Whatever the scale of your wedding, from an intimate elopement, to large-scale wedding - Bendooley Estate is a Southern Highlands Wedding Venue not to be overlooked!

Our Approach

The walls of awkwardness come down the minute our session begins, regardless of whether it be a wedding, intimate adventurous elopement, family memories or parents expecting or cherishing their new arrival.

We want for your memories to live on for generations, to showcase the time capsule that those moments in time are, full of the love and vibrancy. We want your children, and their children, to be able to be taken back to those moments and empathise with the emotions shared. Rather than fading, these moments will grow with you and continue to be a part of the story that is your lives.

We absolutely love shooting weddings at Bendooley Estate, whether it be at The Book Barn or The Stables, arriving as the photographer and leaving as someone whom you feel you’ve known for years. Being able to capture your personalities, the laughter, love and having a ball of fun doing it, all whilst producing images you'll have to cherish for a lifetime - and all you have to do is be you! We’ll handle the rest.
