Aitken Hill might be one of the best-kept secrets of the northern fringes of Melbourne. Located at Yuroke, near Craigieburn, it’s just over half and hour’s drive from the CBD.
The private grounds, approached along a tree-lined road, include tranquil garden settings and lakeside backdrops, and there’s also on-site accommodation.
The menu is courtesy of an award-winning chef, and they even have pre- and post-wedding reception options. All the details are here.
This unique venue is a transformed 1858 country church at Taradale, just past Kyneton, a bit over an hour’s drive from downtown Melbourne.
With its timber ceilings, stained-glass windows, a carved wooden pulpit, and a choir-loft, the church and the adjoining whitewashed wooden hall are set in two acres of garden with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and town.
You can’t beat the views of the Macedon Ranges from pretty much anywhere on the 1200-acres Marnong Estate.
The Estate has a number of options for hosting your ceremony and creating a unique reception, including The Shed, which offers a more rustic and rural feel.
There’s no other venue around Melbourne quite like Montsalvat in Eltham. Nestled in lush gardens, this unique slice of rustic Europe provides a story-book background for your wedding.
Built in 1849, this Scottish-baronial-style castle is set amidst four acres of private tranquil English gardens in northern suburban Keilor.
Wedding ceremonies can be held in the gardens, an original 1882 wrought iron gazebo or the
one-of-a-kind non-denominational chapel with hand-painted features.
This National Heritage-listed grand suburban estate is only 10 kilometres from the Melbourne CBD and one of the most popular venues for stunning events.
With its 14 acres of picturesque gardens surrounding the impressive 19th-century mansion, with its grand ballroom, Rippon Lea can host intimate events or accommodate 200 guests.
Located near Wallan in Victoria, just 50 minutes’ drive from Melbourne, The Grove is set within a 430-acre country estate amongst rolling hills and pencil pines.
Their event space is perfectly suited to weddings and your ceremony can be held in the grounds with lakeside views.
The Timber Yard is built on the philosophy of recycling, upcycling and bringing people together.
Located in the Port Melbourne industrial precinct, the site has been restored remaining true to its heritage of second-hand timber storage and fabrication.
The Timber Yard brings the flavour and personality of the country into the city with four unique spaces that can cater for weddings of varying sizes.
This venue is a favourite for both bridal parties and wedding photographers. The natural setting, landscaped gardens, and the nearly-100-year-old Clubhouse (albeit modernised in 2010) combine to offer the perfect balance of elegance and prestige.
