Get Married

Wedding venues and romantic winery weddings

It’s your dream day, and we know you want everything to be just perfect. Make a pre-wedding tour of the Mornington Peninsula, and you’ll find many very special places. Beautiful country estates which you can book out for your service in the garden, your wedding reception and your luxurious accommodation.

Winery weddings are top of the list for many brides and grooms, but why not come down for a day or two and check out the very stylish golf clubs, boutique hotels, luxury retreats and historic general stores that simply ooze old fashioned charm. There's just as much variety in coastal wedding reception venues, including restaurants right on the beach, a lakeside winery, an historic mansion with thousands of rose bushes, golf clubs perched on cliffs and hotels which are well-practised in the art of the memorable reception. If you’re a barefoot boy or girl, just walk along the beautiful beaches and rugged clifftops until you find that perfect spot to say “I do”. Top Tip: Remember to check and see if you need a permit first.

If a seaside wedding venue is your dream, we have countless locations with the most beautiful settings for wedding photographs. There are pristine bays all along Port Phillip, from Mt Eliza right through to the clifftops of Portsea. For something a little more dramatic, Point Nepean and the lighthouse atop Cape Schanck have locations with magnificent views.

Check out our wineries and restaurants, or golf courses for venue options, and find great places to stay for you and your guests.

What's your dream of the perfect wedding? Contemporary, perhaps even a little unconventional? Perhaps you could arrive by seaplane or sleek white boat at a jetty, and marry on the beach. Or even on horseback for an informal country wedding.

If your style is traditional, what about a beautiful garden ceremony at one of our grand estates. Or a church ceremony followed by a sumptuous feast in a magnificent mansion or a winery restaurant. Just about anything is possible on the Mornington Peninsula...

Right along Western Port Bay are quieter beaches such as Shoreham, Balnarring and Merricks. And within just a few minutes drive are superb vineyard restaurants and an historic general store with a beautifully restored restaurant. Vineyards where you can say ‘I do’ amongst the vines, then celebrate in a fine dining restaurant overlooking the vines, gardens or the ocean. You might prefer the tranquillity of water …perhaps to wed beside a placid private lake at a vineyard or country retreat.

But if a country air appeals, with peaceful rural or bush settings for photographs, come and explore our hinterland. Around Red Hill you'll find exquisite little vineyard restaurants and larger restaurants in hilltop vineyard settings with extraordinary ocean views. And while you're here, let's explore the magnificent maze gardens where you can marry overlooking tranquil water features, lavender gardens and huge green mazes.
