Engaged couples, if you haven’t yet considered the magical charm a winter wedding can bring to your big day, now is the time, as we are thrilled to present our exclusive 2024 Winter Package Special – 100 guests for $10k – a unique opportunity to create magical memories with all of your loved ones, without going over budget.
As you embark on the exciting journey of planning your wedding, and are still dreaming of a 2024 wedding, we’re so excited to offer this and turn your dream into a reality. You and your partner will get to celebrate your special day with 100 of your nearest and dearest for just $10,000. This amazing offer is for a limited-time and valid for weddings booked for mid-May to mid-September 2024.
While we adore the hustle and bustle of peak wedding season, there’s something truly extraordinary about a winter wedding during the quieter months in the Yarra Valley. With our cosy fireplace, luscious landscapes, moody lighting and of course hearty, delectable food and wine, it’s a welcoming venue for a Winter celebration.
Winter’s subdued sunlight offers exceptional advantages for your wedding photographs surrounded by vast picturesque landscapes across our estate. With the sun lower in the sky, it casts a soft, flattering glow, so you need not worry about harsh shadows. Most importantly, it’s the best time of year to get that perfect sunset shot! The longer sunset colours during these months provide a generous window for breathtaking golden hour snaps amongst our gorgeous vineyards.
Embrace the cooler temperatures – Brides, you and your bridesmaids don’t need to stress about your makeup melting off, and you also have the freedom to opt for those darker coloured and stylish long sleeve dresses; Grooms, suit up in your best tux with your groomsmen without the worry of sweating underneath and overheating!
