5 Yarra Valley Wineries Perfect for a Vineyard Wedding
Ever dreamt about having a wedding in a winery?
The stunning views, rustic cellar rooms and acres of winding vines make an amazing setting to enjoy your wedding and provide great photo opportunities.
We've selected five very special wineries located under 90 minutes away from Melbourne in the Yarra Valley:
Zonzo combines traditional Italian food with modern elegance. You can enjoy the Italian custom of the 'shared table' to bring friends and family together to indulge in authentic Italian cuisine and premium wine.
Your package includes pre-dinner canapés on the terrace, a bountiful antipasti selection, wood-fired pizzas and mouth-watering roasts.
It's perfect for your sit-down function as Zonzo can seat 130 guests.
Celebrate your 'I dos' with an Italian feast with those who mean the most to you, with a long table abundant with food, wine, candlelight and laughter.
Celebrate with elegance and style, while supporting a family business which prides itself on exceptional and personalised service.
A stunning venue in which you can enjoy sparkling wine and canapés on the spacious timber deck, watch the orange sun set over the vineyards and mountain ranges, before you move into the cellar door, lit by lanterns, where up to 100 guests can sit down for a meal or 160 can enjoy a cocktail style reception. Their open fireplace also brings a cosy, warm and romantic ambience for cooler nights should you get married in autumn or winter.
If you or your guests need a place to stay in the Yarra Valley for the duration of your wedding, the Sutherland Estate team will help you to book local accommodation and transport. Their romantic private tower is also available for the two of you to enjoy throughout the duration of your wedding or your wedding night.
Be treated like a VIP with the exclusive use of Bulong Estate's venue, garden and vineyard. This means you can take your time at the venue, rather than feeling there's a queue of other weddings waiting behind you.
Bulong is perfect for any season. Spring or summer weddings are perfect for the outside stage area for your ceremony on the lawn and a marquee to enjoy the views and take photos on the lake, while an autumn or winter wedding can take place inside by the fireplace, with bright surroundings and floor to ceiling windows.
Enjoy a smooth event reassured that you will work with the same person throughout your whole experience, as well as assist you with any accommodation and transport needs.
Stones of the Yarra Valley boasts four stunning spaces: the Chapel, Dairy, Barn and Stables, all linked by European-inspired paths across acres of manicured lawn.
Enjoy your beautiful ceremony in The Chapel that encompasses romance, elegance and solitude. It offers rising ceilings, stained-glass windows and sweeping views while your guests are seated on timber pews under a rustic chandelier.
Move into The Dairy for pre-dinner drinks and canapés before dining in either The Barn for larger groups of up to 186 guests, or The Stables which offers a more intimate setting for up to 63 guests.
The Barn features beautiful timber pillars which can be dazzingly decorated with fairy lights or festoon lights and of course it makes for a great setting for a long communal table. It is particularly spectacular with a floral chandelier in the centre of the room.
Accommodation is available for you and your guests next door at The Farmhouse at Meletos and you might also opt to book a pre-wedding dinner or a next day celebration.
Stones of the Yarra Valley has been a leading venue in supporting same sex commitment ceremonies and is looking forward to hosting same-sex marriages when they become legalised.
