The Premier Daylesford Wedding Venue

Your dream wedding at Sault with fields of Lavender, our own Barn/Chapel, exquisite manicured gardens and lake will make it a day to remember for you and your guests.

Delicious Menu Choices

We’ll provide delicious food for your guests and Sault offers several food and beverage packages that cater for every budget.

Wedding Barn/Chapel

The air-conditioned Wedding Barn/Chapel surrounded by gorgeous lavender fields really adds the wow factor.

Lavender Fields

Our Lavender fields give your wedding or pre-shoot that special element. The fields are in-bloom between November and March each year.

A Magical Experience…

When choosing a Daylesford wedding venue, you want the comfort of knowing you’re in the company of experienced hosts. Owners Jodi Flockhart and Damien Aylward have been operating Sault since 2006. In that time they have planned and run over 500 weddings. They’ll make sure your special day will exceed your expectations.

Further to this, you’re guaranteed to be personally looked after by one of the owners as you travel the exciting road of planning your wedding at Sault. Unlike other venues where you are left in the hands of a ‘function coordinator’, owner/operator Jodi Flockhart assists you from your first enquiry through to, and including, the big day.

Add to this personalised service, the stunning setting, and superb food and wine, rest assured your wedding day will be one you and your guests will remember.

Wedding Barn/Chapel

At Sault, our couples are happily enjoying the use of the Wedding Barn and Chapel among the lavender and overlooking the lake. Guests can enjoy the views in air conditioned comfort, and our brides have been extending their walk down the aisle, parking the wedding car at the top of the lavender field and walking down the path to the chapel, sure adds to the wow factor. Our Lavender fields are in-bloom from November through March and add a special element to your wedding day at Sault.

Thanks to the team at Sault for doing such an excellent job of making our wedding day one of the most perfect and memorable days of our lives!”

BIANCA ROBERTSON

“Your efforts for our reception in December made our day just beyond our wildest dreams. I can never thank you enough for the impeccable service, thoughtfulness, patience and fantastic organising that you provided to us. It was without fault, and at the same time personal, we will never be able to thank you enough.”

HALEY

“Many thanks to Jodi and Damien for making our day so wonderful. We are thankful to you both you went above and beyond with everything, everyone mentioned how excellent the service was and all the staff were so lovely and friendly”

BEC + BRENT

“We first visited Sault for dinner a few years before our wedding. The beautiful lake-side setting, the great food and the sunset view in the venue were all things which we felt would create a really picturesque ceremony and reception. On the day, Jodi and Katy took special care to ensure that we got to enjoy the appetizers and wine despite being whisked around for photos. The venue looked stunning, with Damian helping out with some extra touches. Our guests all commented on the great food, the service and the ceremony which we had outside next to the lavender fields. Looking back through the photos, having such a beautiful venue really helped make it feel like a special occasion. Thank you Sault for such a memorable day. Look forward to popping back for dinner for our first anniversary!”

VICTORIA + MARK

Dear Jodi and Damien,

We would like to express our gratitude for the wonderful evening we had on 17.11.19. It was a beautiful celebration and 100 times better than we could have ever imagined. Jess was very lovely and helped coordinate the time very well. Even my guests mentioned that the staff were very polite and efficient! Not to mention the beautiful food and cake, all credit goes to the chefs and kitchen staff  :). The cake was so beautiful we were glad to take it home!!! We had such a wonderful evening, and we will remember it for the rest of our lives ️<3. Thank you so much for giving us a beautiful venue and reception. We hope to visit Sault again soon!
