Weddings & Elopements in Camden – Coming Soon….

Dr Crookston’s Estate is available for exclusive hire, catering to couples and small bridal parties looking for a little pre-wedding peace.


Where the elegance of yesteryear meets the excitement of your big day. 

The perfect place to enjoy the calm before the celebration.

Spend the night before your wedding wrapped in the soothing atmosphere of our historic, one-of-a-kind guest house before waking up refreshed and radiant for your big day.

A retreat to remember
With quaint but modern touches that will leave you feeling pampered, relaxed, and ready to glow as you take the first steps down the aisle toward “I do,” our charming Victorian-era cottage provides the ideal setting to gather with your nearest and dearest to sip champagne, have your hair and makeup done, and create treasured memories on the cusp of your new beginning.

A picture-perfect setting
With its lush green gardens, vibrant purple Jacarandas, and Old English-style courtyard, our estate is a photographer’s dream, offering the perfect backdrop for your pre- and post-wedding snaps and an unforgettable departure point to your venue of choice, whether by vintage car or horse and carriage.

Just the two of you
Once the day’s festivities have wound down, gently retreat to the comfort and elegance of the guest house to privately celebrate your newlywed status with your partner, surrounded by old-world romance and blissful tranquillity.

Stories from real couples

Absolutely beautiful!

As a bride, leaving from this place was magical, and being able to use the main house for photos was sensational! I would recommend this for anyone wanting a relaxing getaway.  Thank you so much.


A dream come true for our day

Thanks to the incredible team at Staytime, Steve and I felt like royalty on our wedding day. Getting ready together in the charming cottage, taking photos under the purple jacarandas, and then being picked up in a vintage car made me feel like Cinderella. Their attention to detail blew us away – personalised touches, rose petals, complimentary drinks – it was sheer magic! I didn’t want the fairy tale to end – it really was the most romantic start to our happily ever after.

The perfect backdrop for the most wonderful pictures

I had the best experience getting my wedding photos taken at Dr Crookston’s historic home. The garden was stunning and beautifully maintained, and the house has endless possibilities for fantastic memories to be made. I recommend any bride to make the most of this beautiful backdrop.
