5 Best Wedding Venues Around Melbourne (According to us anyway)
When you think of your wedding, you will inevitably imagine the location. A beautiful vineyard, a serene garden or a historically magnificent church. Your venue deserves to be exactly as beautiful as you imagined. As a wedding videography company, most of our time is spent in exquisite locations that are perfect for weddings. Needless to say, we have enjoyed each and every place that we visit. However, there are a few that are just that little bit more magical, a little bit more serene. The following are some of the best and beautiful we have visited, and we assure you, you will not be disappointed.
1. Jack Rabbit Vineyard
This lavish vineyard located in Bellarine, Victoria is unrivalled in its excellent location and service. However, the true excellence of this vineyard comes from its amazing views which offer a true experience with Geelong and Melbourne both in sight. There is absolutely no need to change locations at all. You are more than capable of having your ceremony, photos and reception at this gorgeous location. In fact, not only are you capable of doing so, you will not want to move anywhere else. The magical sunset at night will want you having your wedding photos on the beautiful garden. We had a truly great time at Jack Rabbit and are sure you will too.
2. Flowerdale Estate
This beautifully historic estate offers serenity that you will be hard put to find anywhere else. With your ceremony looking over a calm lake surrounded by rolling hills, you will remember this day for the rest of your life. After your ceremony, head to your reception hall where you will enter through giant oak doors to be congratulated by your loving guests. Surrounded by scenic views and blossoming gardens, you and your guests are guaranteed to have the time of your lives. This is another place which allows you to have an all in on location type of wedding. There is no need to move from location to location to take photos or enjoy your wedding (you’ll never want to anyway). All the fun is at Flowerdale Estate anyway.
3. Sault Daylesford
Sault is the type of place you want to live forever. After your wedding, you might just find yourself trying to buy the place so you can grow old in such a tranquil location. Sault offers beautiful views of Wombat State Forest and incredibly beautiful and awe-inspiring lavender fields and big lakes. Also, the food is to die for here. The chefs at Sault are amongst the most talented we have ever experienced. After food, you will be greeted by a large dance floor where you can let loose your dance moves and enjoy the night.
4. Tanglewood Estate
This beautiful estate is hidden in the beautiful eucalyptus trees of Mornington Peninsula, overlooking truly extraordinary views of the sea. You will be surrounded by beautiful flora and fauna native to the location and be absolutely inspired by the heart-shaped dam with a timber deck. This is perhaps the most picturesque location on our list. Each and every corner of Tanglewood Estate offers a unique and one of a kind photo ready to be looked upon with fond memories. You will always remember your ceremony in the rustic barn the estate has to offer and the beautiful old country gardens where you had your beautiful wedding photos taken.
5. Coombe, Yarra Valley
With seven acres of historic, landscaped gardens, Coombe Yarra Valley is one of the most prestigious places to tie the knot. Get married in the lavish and luxurious clock tower with 150 of your closest family and friends. Coombe provides a classic yet equally contemporary wedding with the option for a garden wedding. The unique photo opportunities will ensure that your specialised Instagram hashtag is all the rage after your wedding. The events team at Coombe also assist you in tailoring a food and drink menu so that everything at your wedding speaks to your likes and personality. Your guests will leave knowing they have been to a wedding that is truly planned by you, down to the last cheese ball. Furthermore, the equisite architecture of Coombe will have you feeling warm and fuzzy as your bridal party delivers some truly awesome speeches.
