Recommended Wedding Venues

There are so many wedding venues in the Melbourne, Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula areas that I have enjoyed working at, that I have decided to compile a list in order to help couples who may still be searching for  a wedding venue that fits their requirements.

This list does not intend to be exhaustive or comprehensive, instead offering a stamp of approval from a Melbourne wedding photographer that has attended and photographed a wedding at this venue.

Venues which have not taken care of me on the day (ie. given me a crap meal, when a couple have paid for a full one), been rude, not treated the guests well, or not shown enough respect, class or simply don’t deserve to be recommended, have simply been scratched from the list and won’t be making an appearance!  If they’re on this page, they’re doing things right and keeping clients and other weddings suppliers happy!

 

Melbourne

Leonda by the Yarra

Mountain Goat Brewery Beer. Lots of it. It gets a tick from me.

Butleigh Wootton is now sadly closed. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens to this beautiful old building with it’s grand staircase and ornate ceilings. Hopefully someone makes good use of it and make it into an amazing family home!

The Luminare

Eynesbury Estate

Stokehouse

Enoteca – I hear it’s currently undergoing renovations after changing ownership. More as I get it…

Circa

Nestled in Elsternwick, less than 10km from Melbourne CBD Rippon Lea House & Gardens is a National Trust listed property and often popular with couples looking for a classic or vintage feel. It is also just around the corner from another National Trust listed property, Quat Quatta.

Encore, St Kilda

Sails on the Bay

Treasury on Collins

The Substation

The Glasshouse

Montsalvat

Greenfields

Werribee Mansion

Butleigh Wootton is now sadly closed. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens to this beautiful old building with it’s grand staircase and ornate ceilings. Hopefully someone makes good use of it and make it into an amazing family home!

Another impending closure that we heard about this week on the wedding grapevine is the International of Brighton (most people just call it the Brighton International!) which has apparently been sold to developers for apartments.  More as we get it…

Close by in Highett, 40rd is being talked about alot lately – in a good way! A blank canvas type warehouse venue. Bright and versatile.

Regal Ballroom, Northcote

Originally owned and run by Masterchef’s Gary Mehigan, Fenix is a popular event and wedding venue located above the banks of the Yarra River in Richmond.

White Lane is a new (opened Sept 2017) event and wedding venue located on Flinders Lane in Melbourne CBD. Offering a blank canvas type space with whitewashed walls and sensational dining.

True South, Black Rock A restaurant and on site brewery. Can you where this is heading?!  Sounds like a perfect venue to me!

Also on the bay is Sandringham Yacht Club with great views towards the city as well as south toward Half Moon Bay and Red Bluff.

Yarra Valley & Dandenongs

Stones of the Yarra Valley

Projekt 3488

Mt Rael

Mount View Estate in the beautiful Yarra Valley is not strictly a wedding venue, but luxury accommodation that is well suited to hosting weddings and private gatherings.

Gum Gully Farm

If I’m in the Yarra Valley I love to visit Zonzo – great for coffee, lunch or a wedding!  Stunning views and great options for wedding photos.
