    Your Guide to Winery Wedding Venues in Melbourne

     

    There are many reasons why couples continue to flock to wineries across Melbourne for their weddings. Wineries are just as easily adapted to casual, BBQ-style affairs where guests can relax and lounge on the lawn as they are to formal, black-tie events. Melbourne’s wineries are all unique, though they share a few stunning similarities such as sprawling lawns and gardens, rows of manicured vines, and views over the gorgeous Yarra Valley.

     

    Wineries come with homegrown luxuries; wine sourced from the property and fresh produce from the local region. Winery venues allow guests to move between the interior and exterior at their own pace, typically hosting ceremonies in the garden with the vines and valley the backdrop. From there, your wedding party pops off to take some formal photos amongst the vines whilst your guests indulge in cocktails and canapes on the lawn. Upon your return, the reception can begin in either a marquee under the stars or inside the venue.

     

    When you’re considering a winery for your wedding venue, our Melbourne VenueCrew Specialists . have a few tips that might help you decide.

     

    VenueCrew Specialist Tip #1: Some Wineries Offer Onsite Accommodation

     

    A perk of heading away from the city’s hustle and bustle is the sense of romantic escapism. However, the distance can be a source of concern for guests who are unsure of their travel and sleeping arrangements.

     

    That’s why we recommend looking for wineries that offer accommodation nearby; even better than that, find ones that provide accommodation onsite! The historic Chateau Yering Hotel in the Yarra Valley boasts 32 individually-designed suites that evoke a sense of luxury and comfort. The Melba Suites offer a luxurious king-size bed, a glamorous claw-foot bath, and a private balcony with winery views. Additionally, the Melba Suites are ideal for people with accessibility requirements, offering the use of a separate marble bathroom for privacy and convenience.

     

    The Yering Suite is ideal for couples who want to get ready for the wedding onsite. This split-level apartment is the only accommodation in the main home, meaning you have total privacy to prepare. A large lounge area with large windows and a gas log fire is the perfect spot for your wedding party to have their hair and makeup done. A Juliet balcony is a gorgeous spot for some pre-wedding pics.

    VenueCrew Specialist Tip #2: There’s Room for a Red Carpet

     

    Just because you’re heading out of the city doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice glamour. Winery weddings can be just as high-end as any CBD event space, and there’s often a red carpet to prove it.

     

    At Max’s Restaurant at Red Hill Estate effortlessly intertwines country charm with contemporary glamour. The Lawn is the spot for ceremonies with dramatic views of the vineyards, with soft acoustic music rolling across the open-air space. Rows of gleaming white chairs lead up to the glorious arbour, and running down the aisle is a plush red carpet. If a red carpet is a little too bold for your taste, swap it out for a classic white runner. After the ceremony, head up to The Terrace for pre-reception cocktails and canapes.

    If making a high-end statement is on your wedding bucket list, you can’t look past the dramatic entrance option offered at Levantine Hill in the Yarra Valley. Tom Cruise eat your heart out, at Levantine Hill you can arrive at your wedding via helicopter! A pre-ceremony trip with Microflite tours gives you the best views of the Yarra Valley, and landing within a short walk of your ceremony means all your guests will be able to witness your cinematic arrival.

    VenueCrew Specialist Tip #3: You Can Still Go to the Chapel

     

    For couples who are still seeking a religious experience for their wedding ceremony, you don’t necessarily have to go offsite from the winery. At Fergusson Winery, their Forever Chapel is perfectly situated for couples and their guests to gather within walking distance of the reception space. An intimate white chapel with all the hallmarks of rustic charm, the Forever Chapel can comfortably accommodate up to 100 guests. Natural light fills the space, and with 360-degree views of the vineyards, you’ll find that the backdrop to your ceremony certainly feels like it’s been designed by a higher power.

     

    Heading up to the main venue, you have two reception spaces to choose from. The Barrel Room is perfect for banquet-style events with a dancefloor for up to 80 people. White walls and high ceilings evoke a rustic warehouse aesthetic, and a tasteful feature wall comprising French Oak barrels draws the eye. Download the Fergusson Winery wedding brochure.
