Marrying outdoors in Melbourne? There are so many breathtakingly beautiful gardens, vineyards and fields to choose from. Earlier this year I shared my favourite Outdoor Wedding Venues - Public Spaces. Here are my favourite privately-owned outdoor spaces in Melbourne (and surrounds).
Alowyn Gardens, Yarra Glen
Stones of the Yarra Valley, Coldstream
City & Inner Suburbs
And what's the advantage of marrying at a private venue, as opposed to a public space? You'll most often be able to have your reception onsite (guests love not having to drive to two venues) and you'll most likely able to head indoors with minimal fuss should the weather become inclement. It's also likely that there will be venue staff on hand to assist, seating, restrooms and considerably better (and free) car parking options for guests.
With the exception of those credited to photographers, the images used in this post have been obtained from official venue web pages.
