Wedding at Clover Cottage.
I LOVE small intimate weddings and this is exactly how Adrian and Bec’s day was. With just 25 of their closest friends and family, Adrian and Bec tied the knot at the stunning Clover Cottage in Quinnenup.
What a spot!
Congratulations Adrian and Bec on your special day
A bit of history…
Wedding at Clover Cottage were celebrated as far back as the 1880s. It is the perfect destination wedding venue as guests can stay in the cosy cottages. Vows can be exchanged in the beautiful historic natural surroundings, then celebrate together in the Mudbrick Barn or in a marque overlooking the lakes and river valley. The area has an abundance of fabulous photo spots without even going off sight.
Clover Cottage is nestled on the banks of the Warren River and was settled by Peter and Ellen Wheatley in the 1860s. it is steeped in history of the area. Original buildings and trees can be still admired today.
The first homestead at Clover Cottage had wall of upright slabs, thatched roof and a stone floor. The bricks for the big Dutch oven were burnt on the place and the wooden window and door frames were made from timber sawn in a pit nearby. Unfortunately, no evidence of this building remains, only speculation as to where it was constructed.
In 1875 the second Clover Cottage was built. This home was constructed from hand fired bricks which were made from clay collected from the banks of the Warren River and fired by Peter Wheatley. The roof was built from jarrah shingles. A professional builder named Jack Haynes was employed to construct the house. The cottage with its shingles and beautiful hand fired bricks is still standing sturdy today and has been recently restored with loving care by Paul Thomsett.
