Weddings & Events



If you dream of a bespoke barefoot wedding you will love Old Mac Daddy, set amongst apple orchards and the pine whispering slopes of the Elgin Valley. A beautiful stretch of lawn beside the lake is perfect for a ceremony and our Barn venue is a magnificent indoor-outdoor space for your reception or party.


Relaxed, unfussy and all about friends; Old Mac Daddy can host a wedding or gathering for 44 overnight guests with a further 18 overnight guests on day beds in certain trailers. For the ceremony or party; our restaurant and barn can host up to 100 seated guests.


The Elgin area offers plenty of additional accommodation and lots of activities to keep your guests busy before and after the big event.




Ideal for large family and friend gatherings, birthday parties and special occasions we can arrange anything to make it a special Affair.
