This romantic 19th-century homestead near the suburb of Camden features stunning architectural elements that add a vintage look to wedding photos — from chimney stacks to gables, arched verandahs and extensive period gardens.

“Inside and out, this grand old home is our favourite place to shoot in Western Sydney,” says Rachael.

“It has old-fashioned wooden stables, a grand central staircase and antique furniture in every room — including an old-style mannequin for your wedding dress. The three-storey home offers sweeping gardens and is also available for the ceremony itself.

The 33-hectare grounds include classic examples of Horbury Hunt's clay-brick specialty including a beehive-shaped smoke house, an octagonal aviary and large ornate stable block, with hammer-arched roofing. Camelot has featured in the Baz Luhrmann film, Australia and the Channel 7 series, A Place to Call Home!

"Camelot" stands on the site of explorer John Oxley's Kirkham Mill. The original grant was made in 1810 and extended in 1815. It is constructed from brick and has a romantic silhouette of turrets, chimney stacks, gables, arched verandas and projecting bays. "Camelot" was reportedly built with the winnings from "Chester", a racehorse which won the Melbourne Cup in 1877, owned by James White. The house was owned later on by the Faithfull-Anderson family. Camelot also has a fine brick stable with arched wooden ribbing, a brick smokehouse and an octagonal aviary.

The 55-room fairytale-like, Camelot and its gardens have clearly been stunningly restored by the owners, Brendan and Rachel Powers. Set among rolling green pastures with well-established cottage-style gardens, and a winding, tree-lined drive from gates, Cameot is the perfect location for your big day!
