Marnong Estate Wedding Ceremonies
While there are an endless number of scenic options on the expansive property, two ceremony sites stand out as both elegant and practical: the Secret Garden and the Green Grove.
- The Secret Garden. The Secret Garden can best be described as a romantic, airy sanctuary with a plethora of blossoming flowers and foliage. Tucked away from its farmland surrounds, the Secret Garden is perfect for couples after an outdoor ceremony with plenty of love, emotion, and greenery.
- The Green Grove. The Green Grove is a contemporary glass space offering an abundance of natural light and stunning views of the nearby vineyard. It has vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, a wall of greenery behind an in-built arbour, and a stunning modern design, making it a chic and polished place for an alfresco wedding, regardless of the season.
Marnong Estate Wedding Receptions
Wedding receptions at Marnong Estate Mickleham can be held in one of three inviting spaces: The Angliss Room, The Woolshed, and The Green Grove.
The largest of three options, the Angliss Room is a luxurious wedding space characterised by its minimalist design, generous dancefloor, and breathtaking views over the Macedon Ranges. While Marnong Estate Mickleham is situated in the most rustic of settings, highlighted by the rolling hills viewable from all vantage points in the venue, the Angliss Room’s subtle styling makes it well-suited for elegant modern weddings.
The versatile Woolshed will be a dream come true if you’re wrestling between industrial-chic and rustic themes. This inviting space incorporates elements of both popular wedding themes through the use of vaulted ceilings and corrugated iron walls. Meanwhile, hardwood floors and a veil of sparkling lights add a welcome touch of splendour to the exquisite Woolshed. Be sure to make use of the Woolshed’s adjoining outdoor terrace, which beautifully showcases the clear, country night sky.
If formal and rustic themes don’t tickle your fancy, Marnong Estate’s newest and final offering will be sure to impress. Elegant and contemporary, the Green Grove is perfect for couples after a garden wedding amidst an array of beautiful foliage. The light-filled Green Grove is a glass-enclosed area embellished by lush greenery, warm timber finishings, an in-built arbour, and an enchanting garden. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow guests to take in the Green Grove’s vineyard views whatever the weather.

What a breathtaking venue! I had the joy of having my wedding at Marnong Estate last year in December, and everything from the venue to the staff was simply amazing. I couldn't have asked for anything better. Thank you to the team for a memorable day :) Note: the views from the venue are to die for. You can see the Macedon Ranges!

We knew Marnong Estate was our venue from the moment we parked. If you love greenery, mountain backdrops, and just open space Marnong Estate is for you. Marnong Estate really cultivates all types of wedding styles! Caters from rustic chic to luxurious. Everyone there that we have dealt with so far have been amazing! We can't wait to hold our wedding there :)

We hosted our reception in The Woolshed space as well as the new Green Grove for our ceremony. The entire day was beautiful, flawless and managed perfectly by their event coordinator and the rest of the team. A few of our guests with specific dietary requirements let us know they also had no trouble receiving their delegated meals as well, which meant a lot to us. Thankyou Marnong!
