With rich, romantic details delivered in a European environment, Montsalvat is a resident arts colony located in the township of Eltham that functions as a beautiful event space. Established in the 1940s, the venue offers beautiful grounds with a diverse array of buildings and backdrops for your images.
Nestled in 12 stunning acres of lush gardens, Montsalvat has a Great Hall, several medieval looking buildings, and mudbrick cottages. During the warmer summer months, the outdoor Ornamental Pond space is full of character and serves as an ideal setting for cocktail style receptions. Since the venue is so spacious, there are many options for intriguingly beautiful backdrops for your wedding photos.
Perfect for a sophisticated, romantic ceremony, the Great Hall features a reception area with a grand fireplace and an upper gallery furnished as a chapel where wedding vows can be exchanged. The Great Hall, with its huge fireplace, mudbrick walls, and timber beams offer an unforgettable setting for a wedding reception. An intricate chandelier hangs above the hall for added elegance. The Great Hall can be organised to suit your needs as well. It looks stunning set up as a banquet or formal table arrangement. The gallery features floor to ceiling bay windows overlooking the garden. For further accommodation, there is also a small attic space suitable for wedding party preparations. Montsalvat also is an excellent choice for a smaller ceremony as well, as it also offers freestanding Bluestone Chapel to hold a more intimate wedding ceremony.
