Could your wedding day be so local where everything was literally 5 minutes away?
Certainly for Jing and Brandon it was. And it was so awesome! They live just 5 minutes down the road. They didn’t even need a car.
They simply walked to their wedding. How cool is that? I also live 15 minutes away from Acre Eatery Camperdown Commons wedding so for me it was super convenient!
If you haven’t heard of Acre Eatery or Camperdown Commons before, it really is a little hidden gem in Sydney’s Inner West. It used to be an old bowling green since the 1950’s and they transformed it into a Inner City Farm called Pocket City Farms and Camperdown Commons.
In the front you have the farm, and out the back you have the restaurant and cafe. Quite a great idea!
A relatively newcomer to the wedding business, they are super easy going to work with, work with local suppliers to source their produce as well as having a garden of their own right at the front.
Victor and Zuzana and the team at Acre Eatery are so so accommodating and are so willing to help their clients plan an amazing easy going wedding.
What’s really cool is they grow their own vegetables on site via their sister venue Camperdown Commons.
The food is so fresh and you can tell it has just been picked their food that day. I can say not many Sydney wedding venues can say they have their own farm in their backyard!
Jing and Brandon loved how they had a spit lamb and pork for their dinner, so they could share everything and not waste a single bit of the animal.
Everything was shared and “common” amongst everyone. Something I found quite refreshing after many weddings with the same meat and three veg, and a very traditional stuffy 3 course meal.
I really love how they support local suppliers like Young Henry’s which brews their super awesome beer just down the road and wines which haven’t travelled across the globe. I love that about this venue.
Everything about this venue is local, easy and not one bit “snobby”
