Often referred to as a ‘living, breathing postcard of 19th century Australia,’ the Werribee Park and the Mansion Hotel & Spa is a picturesque event space to host your wedding. Located just outside Melbourne, the vintage venue is sure to make the hearts of hopeless romantics swell with excitement upon imagining their big day. Radiating a distinct and classic feel, the venue dazzles with Victorian period interiors and Italianate-style architecture.
The grounds of the Werribee Mansion emanate romance, and will serve as a beautiful backdrop for your day of love. There are 10 hectares of formal gardens that encase the mansion. Much of the gardens are attributed to the work of W.R Guilfoyle, Curator of the Melbourne Botanic Gardens. As for the mansion, the building offers an air of old-world magic and countless portrait possibilities. One of the most striking features of the mansion is its aerial view of the geometric garden, or parterre. As if those spaces didn’t already offer enough beautiful backdrops, the grounds also boast a pretty pond and an original grotto.
In a separate wing behind the mansion, the Mansion Hotel and Spa can be found. Offering 5 star accommodation with a restaurant and day spa, you and your guests can enjoy the royal treatment. This space also offers a selection of unique rooms to host your wedding ceremony, reception and photo shoot.
The Victoria State Rose Garden is also nearby. Shaped like a giant Tudor Rose with a total of 500 roses all looked after with immaculate care, this acclaimed garden is winner of the prestigious World Federation of Rose Societies Award for Garden Excellence. Nothing says vintage glamour like portraits set amongst a display of romantic roses.
The charming venue has proved to be an exceptional space, and I am very familiar with how to make the most of the grounds. Couples walk away from this venue with classic and sophisticated wedding photos to cherish time and time again.
