Just an hour from Melbourne, our region is the dream location for couples looking to tie the knot.

People flock here for the gourmet produce, world-class eateries, pristine natural environment, luxury accommodation and stately gold rush era venues. There’s plenty of choice for the most discerning wedding planner looking for somewhere special to say, ‘I do’.

Church Wedding

From an intimate bluestone church sitting in a paddock, to lofty churches, small chapels, to magnificently stately spaces – we have them all. Simple decorations or elegantly attired church weddings provide something memorable for those seeking a traditional marriage with spiritual, ecclesiastical and serene peacefulness.

Try The Convent, Scrub Hill 1869, Churchill, Spring Hill Church.

European Glamour Wedding

We can’t travel there now, but you can convince your guests and Facebook friends that you were there for the big day. Our region has a long association with Europe. The wealth of the gold rush established many fine buildings influenced by the Victorian and Georgian eras, and the Swiss Italian descendants bedecked our landscape with landmarks reminiscent of parts of their home country. You’ll be whisked away in the moments and believe you’re in another country.

Try Lake House, Peppers Hepburn Springs, Sault, Lavandula.

Country Wedding

A country wedding is all about a backdrop of heart-rending natural beauty. A big, blue expanse of sky, paddocks of green as far as the eye can see, and the two of you getting married under the dappled shade of a statuesque oak tree. It’s relaxed, filled with bales of hay, rambling roses, gum trees and gales of laughter.

Try Camp David, Hedge Farm, Quirindi Stables, The Cosmopolitan Hotel.

Winery Wedding

Grapevines aplenty, spectacular views, historic homesteads, expanses of mountains or trees – imagine your wedding ceremony set amongst breathtaking views at one of our region’s many acclaimed wineries. And of course, the toast to the happy couple and the provision of good wine is simply a given! Choose from boutique vineyards, quirky wineries or any number of our larger iconic wineries.

Try Cleveland Winery, Wombat Forest Vineyard/The Burrow, Mount Macedon Winery, Glen Erin Winery

I've had a love affair with photography for as long as I can remember. I'm truly blessed to be one of the lucky ones, who can genuinely say that I love my job. Being entrusted to capture what can be the most important moments of people’s lives is a blessing. My aim is to capture the true spirt of the moment, and deliver images that will bring real emotion to my clients.
