The Complete Wedding Experience
Established in 1987 and still owned and operated by the same family, we provide an unforgettable experience on your wedding day.
Located at the foothills of the Yarra Valley, you will find everything you had dreamed of in the one location at Ballara.
For your ceremony, select from our on-site chapel or one of many locations in our secluded English gardens.
With so many photo opportunities on-site, there is no need for you to leave Ballara in order to capture all those magical moments.
Wander around the lake to discover our cascading waterfall, giant swing, lakeside jetty, rustic LOVE letters and rose arbours to name a few,
without the hassle and stress of going to additional locations.
Relax and enjoy the reception in our enchanting ballroom – with sparkling chandeliers, large central dance floor and windows looking out to the fairy lit gardens.
No two weddings are the same, so we would love to tailor a package and quote to suit you and to find out what’s important for your wedding day?
Our team is here for you from your first inspection, throughout the planning process and on the big day to ensure everything comes together for you.
We look forward to the opportunity to discuss your wedding plans and ideas.
