If you’ve got a lot of interstate or overseas guests coming to your wedding, it makes sense to choose a reception venue with its own on-site accommodation. Here’s just a few of our favourites around Melbourne and beyond:
1. Stones of the Yarra Valley
Stones is hugely popular and with good reason. There’s those gorgeous, uninterrupted views across the Yarra Valley, the lovely vintage, farmhouse setting and a stunning high-ceiling stone chapel. And The Farmhouse at Meletos is just next door with boutique suites for your lucky guests!
2. Yering Station
They are touted as ‘Victoria’s first vineyard’ and Yering Station offers lots of options to create your perfect wedding day in style. Accommodation is available next door at the luxurious Chateau Yering (who also hold weddings if you’re after a more historic vibe).
4. Immerse Winery
Immerse in Dixon’s Creek is another venue with it all. There’s three ceremony options (including two chapels), those beautiful views and 20 boutique accommodation rooms for you and your guests, which include breakfast the next morning. Check out Sarah and Phillip’s wedding photos here
5. Tatra Receptions
Tatra is surrounded by the beautiful Dandenong Ranges forest and has 28 accommodation rooms on-site for you and your guests.
6. Brighton Savoy
Brighton Savoy is directly opposite Middle Brighton beach with gorgeous waterfront views. There’s lots of luxurious rooms available for all your guests, even those locals looking for a stay-cation at the seaside!
8. Portsea Hotel
If you’re looking for a laid-back, beachy vibe in one of Melbourne’s most exclusive suburbs, Portsea Hotel is the top choice. Both reception spaces offer stunning views across the bay and there’s rooms in the hotel upstairs available for your guests to make a weekend of it.
