When it comes to garden wedding venues in Melbourne, Ballara Receptions ticks all the boxes. From secret garden vibes to stunning structured outdoor areas, our expansive estate really does have it all.

Check out what makes Ballara one of the best garden wedding venues Melbourne has to offer.

Lakeside Garden

Our intimate lakeside garden ceremony spot is an idyllic location that caters to 30 seated guests. It has a romantic energy – complete with a swing and rustic archway – that is much like the delightfully whimsical English gardens from great historical novels.

The lakeside garden also includes the exquisite gazebo, which makes a great backdrop as you exchange your vows. This is more versatile for bigger weddings, with seating for 60 and standing room for up to 100 guests. Your ceremony booking also includes a sound system, so that all of your guests can hear every sweet word.

The Ballara Receptions team are romantics at heart and love creating beautiful ceremonies in this beautiful part of the grounds.
