Katie Zac, our wedding planner who services Mornington Peninsula, Bendigo and Daylesford let us in on a few little secrets – 5 of her favourite wedding venues.

If you’re planning a wedding in Mornington Peninsula, Bendigo or Daylesford you might want to check out her hand-picked list and insight!

The Baths, Sorrento

Where the sun meets the sea. This venue is so breathtaking, with its large glass windows and the back drop of the water and all the small boats docked nearby behind it reminds me of an island wedding.

The option of arriving on boat is one of the very awesome perks to this venue. It has its own jetty where the bride and groom can arrive and then celebrate their wedding with their first dance on the sand with their own spotlight. And when the sun is setting there would be no photo more romantic.

The Epicurean, Red Hill

Rustic Elegance. Not only do you get some of the best food at the Epicurean, you get an incredible venue.

There’s a room full of wine barrels adorning one entire wall that makes for the perfect rustic photo backdrop.

You can host your ceremony here as well as your celebration after.
And once again you can’t go past good food and the epicurean serves an abundance of the best wedding venue food in a family style matter, cause lets face it, everyone becomes family on the day of a wedding.

Lake House, Daylesford

The picturesque views of the Lake house are just breathtaking. It has a somewhat country charm to it and a few rooms to cater to a wedding of any size and style.

A wedding here only needs an emphasis on nature and local blooms to lift it to a magical space. And of course can’t go past the amazing award winning food at the Lake House.

The Burrow, Hepburn Springs

I’m a sucker for boho rustic weddings and the Burrow is the perfect event space to host one at. The gorgeous forest that the Burrow is in is full of gigantic oak trees, untouched spaces and nearby waterfalls that make for simplistic yet stunning photos with nature.

Bendigo Town Hall, Bendigo

The heart of Bendigo is only fitting to host an event where two hearts combine. It is such a grand wedding venue that brings a sophistication along with old time royalty to any event hosted here.

So you can’t have the wedding you want unless you know what you want, right?

And even if you THINK you know what that is, it’s unlikely that you and your partner have really, truly uncovered it (because it’s usually hidden beneath a whole lot of confusing opinions, rules, fears and worries).

So we thought it might help if we showed you how uncover what perfect means to you (the results may surprise you!), help you to create your very own, personalised wedding ‘blueprint’,  and then get you on track to actually making it happen.

We had the most amazing time! It went so smoothly and everything was just as we had imagined! 
Dad even thanked you in his speech!

One of the BEST decisions I have made in this whole wedding planning process, hands down.  All of my guests were raving about how carefully, thoughtfully and uniquely planned my wedding was.

Your kind, consultative approach and talent for design and coordination is nothing short of phenomenal and was pivotal to the success of our day.
