Where are the best Yarra Valley Wedding Venues?
The Yarra Valley is a hotspot for weddings. No surprise considering the 90 different wineries to choose from. But how does one narrow down the best Yarra Valley wedding venues?
Surrounded by stunning views and only an hour’s drive from Melbourne, winery cellar doors range from rustic sheds and barn yards to “architectural statements”.
Below are some of my fave Yarra Valley wedding venues. Each completely unique and fun.
“The purpose of the gardens at “Alowyn” is to provide an informative and educational experience. For anyone interested not only in gardening, but also the enjoyment of a beautiful garden. It has been designed with shade and comfort in mind”
In a wedding nutshell that equates to 6 distinct areas offering plenty of variety for your creative photo session. AND a BLOOMING awesome wedding album as a result! (See what I did there? Badum tish!).
Oakridge has been a family owned company since its inception in 1978. In 2012 it boasted the title of “Australian Winery of the Year” from The Age & Sydney Morning Herald Good Wine Guide.
The following year, the striking new Oakridge restaurant and cellar door was opened to the public. This impressive architectural statement provides the perfect backdrop for wedding couples.
If you’re after a quaint, rustic setting which is not only affordable but offers incredible views than Acacia Ridge is definitely worth checking out. Did I mention the views? This really was a treat for me and I hope to shoot again there soon.
“A Balgownie Estate wedding proudly offers the unique advantage of the ‘all in one’ resort experience for your guests to enjoy.

“Imagine being surrounded by spectacular 360-degree views across our immaculate vineyard and lake as you exchange your vows in front of your friends and family… Sunset in the vines as the dramatic backdrop for your unique wedding photographs… Dancing the night away under the stars…”
No need to imagine, I’ve got you covered…. Note: The B&B featured is Valley Guest House.

“Wonderment is inherent in a Yarra Valley wedding – particularly one at Zonzo Estate. With our dedicated wedding coordinator to guide you through the journey, we ensure that the big day is nothing less than extraordinary”.
A gorgeous barn and lake make for a stunning backdrop and when the sun sets, oh my, does my trigger finger get a workout.
