Our estate sits amongst pristine English gardens at the foothills of the Yarra Valley in Melbourne, and all of this can be exclusively yours with a magnificent garden wedding venue at Ballara Receptions.

Beautiful English Garden Wedding Venue in Melbourne, Victoria

For the garden wedding ceremony itself, the setting is an exquisite outdoor Victorian gazebo. Guests arrive and are guaranteed to be wowed by the beauty of the lakeside backdrop, offset by majestic willow trees among which the gazebo is nestled.

Meanwhile, we personally meet your guests and guide them to up to 60 white timber chairs provided courtesy of ourselves. As well as organising seating, we also play your music and generally make sure everything runs smoothly just as you planned. Brides can arrive to our red carpet aisle; a fitting prelude to the very moment your married life begins.

Next comes the wedding photography; and with it, another very good reason why Ballara makes the perfect garden wedding venue. This carefully planned estate features a treasure-trove of features that are ideal as backdrops for photos, from our waterfall, giant rustic LOVE letters, to the jetty extending over the lake.

Having your reception at Ballara automatically enables you to have your ceremony here too.

Alternatively, if your reception is elsewhere, then subject to availability, Ballara’s beautiful wedding ceremony venue is available to hire for a two-hour period.
