Cummins House in Novar Gardens was built by Sir John Morphett in 1842, who was one of the founding fathers of Adelaide. Cummins House now offers stunning gardens and perfectly preserved internal and external fixtures and fittings, and a unique and memorable function venue.
While Cummins House is just 20 minutes from the city and less than 10 minutes from Glenelg beach, the house and gardens are so perfectly nestled amongst suburban streets that you feel as though you could be anywhere—surrounded by the luscious tranquil gardens you could be high above Adelaide in the hills or away from the bustle outside of the city, all without the tiresome drive.
It is the gardens of Cummins House which can be the setting for your wedding day, where you can hold both your ceremony and your reception on the grounds. Cummins House is the perfect venue if you have always dreamed of a magical marquee wedding as you can design and style marquees and a wedding layout which suit your personality, your guests and your budget. The extensive lawns can be dotted with chic oversized umbrellas to shade tables or be scattered through a cocktail function, or in cooler weather you can choose a fully walled and lined marquee.
With so many natural and classical inspirations you can plan a modern and stylish wedding celebration in the heart of a historic South Australian landmark, with stunningly beautiful backdrops for your photos.
