Best Wedding Venues Melbourne | Wedding Venues Melbourne

A few of Karine Hart’s favourites…

As a Marriage Celebrant, I quite often get asked where the best or where my favourite wedding venues are in Melbourne… So, here are some of my favourites  (in no particular order), where I enjoy officiating marriages. There are so many options in Melbourne and these are just a few I enjoy visiting, including areas in bayside, and the Dandenong Ranges.

 

Brighton Savoy

I have worked here a few times over the years and simply love The Brighton Savoy. Depending on your guest numbers and the availability, there are various locations to choose to have your ceremony within this bayside venue, such as the Gala Atrium, Wellington Room or the Seaview Courtyard. You can then pop across the road if you like and have some beach photos taken before enjoying your wedding reception with delicious food options! Accommodation is also available.

Sails on the Bay

In beautiful bayside Elwood, Sails on the Bay is great for those wanting a beach vibe wedding, whilst being sheltered from the elements. It’s on the foreshore in Elwood and the terrace space and the private dining room are beautiful and light filled so capturing great memories is a breeze. With the option of easily heading onto the beach front before your wedding reception begins (and perhaps at sunset), you’ll have no shortage of awesome photos of your special day!

Tatra Receptions

I really enjoy working in the Dandenong Ranges and Tatra Receptions is perfect for those wanting a secluded spot to host their wedding. With the option of outdoor area (the cupola) or the chapel with floor to ceiling windows, it’s a perfect spot no matter what season it is!  The cozy Ballroom features stunning views of the gardens, for everyone to enjoy during the reception. Accommodation is also available.

Marybrooke Manor

This lovely venue situated near Sherbrooke Forest has the option of a sunken garden which has a lot of character. With an old-English style vibe, Marybrooke Manor is an option for those wanting a traditional wedding and even has a wine garden where your guests can enjoy pre dinner drinks! The gardens are beautifully manicured and look wonderful no matter what the season is. Accommodation is also available.

Old Cheese Factory Berwick

A lovely historic venue in Berwick with a story to tell! The Old Cheese Factory is perfect for those wanting a relaxed vibe on their big day. The gardens are cheery and colourful and you have the option of using the indoor chapel in case of inclement weather. The photo opportunities are endless here with the historic buildings and the ceremony set up  is always proficient. Reception options can include Marquee (or even Tipi Hire!)

Tatra Wedding

And the bride was wed in red at her Tatra Wedding!

Laura and Hayden chose to get married in March at the beautiful chapel at Tatra Receptions in Mount Dandenong.

Laura was walked down the aisle by her proud father Glen and as they entered the chapel, there were gasps as Laura looked breath taking in her ruby red dress. This was kept a secret to everyone- including myself, so even I looked at Hayden and said “WOW-She looks beautiful in red!”.

Bride in ruby red at Tatra Receptions

At their Tatra Wedding, Laura chose to walk down the aisle to Sweet Disposition by Temper Trap. Hayden could not stop smiling and was simply overwhelmed by her beauty. Glen made the giving of the bride a fun one by saying a few cheeky words. We all enjoyed it!

To tie in their request of having a relaxed and fun ceremony and allowing their guest to share a laugh, I wrote a bit about their story and how they met, the proposal and what they admire in each other. They wrote their own vows which were truly great to witness and the theme of Laura’s love of animals was evident throughout. Along with emotional tears, there was also a bit of laughter…

Here is a snippet of Hayden’s vows:-

From the first time we met I knew you were someone special. Over the years we have grown together and learned a lot about each other.

I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you. Your love of revenge movies and obsession with animals makes you my perfect match.

Here is a snippet of Laura’s vows:-

Hayden, you are the one for me. Nothing and no one compares to you – my real life Rambo – I fell in love with your unique spirit and outlook on life.

Throughout our life, I will work hard to remember where I have put your things after a cleaning frenzy; however, I can’t guarantee that I won’t ask for more animals.

I wish Laura and Hayden all the very best in their future together and thank them for choosing me as their Marriage Celebrant Melbourne.
