"A dream come true" - Yarra Ranges Estate Wedding Venue, Monbulk - Victoria

"A dream come true", that is what I thought when I arrived at this gorgeous wedding venue in Monbulk. I hadn't been to this location before as a wedding celebrant but what I found was truly amazing! This is a family owned boutique vineyard and wedding reception venue in the Dandenong Ranges. Stunning! If I was a bride again, to get married at this beautiful location would be "a dream come true."

 

The lovely venue is operated by Anton and his wife Anna and their children James and Sarah.  As a family business it has a beautiful relaxed atmospher unlike anywhere else.

There are three stunning locations for your wedding ceremony.  The first is a wrought iron vineyard gazebo outside in the garden which is just lovely for garden weddings.  The view of the vines on the distant hills is fantatic.  I could even see wallabies and ducks in the distance!  There is also a raised arch lawn which is very colourful and a perfect spot for outside garden weddings.  This secluded area has a lovely view of the vineyards in the distance.  Then the third option is for inside weddings, these are held in a lovely bluestone room which is very intimate, warm and welcoming.

This last option is where I conducted a wedding service for my couple Irene and Graeme today.  It was an amazing wedding.  Very emotional, lots and lots of tears, but they were happy tears!  Lucky I got the grooms mother to give him her hankie!

The dining room and bar area is very spacious light and airy.  You can see directly out to the vineyards.  It has a beautiful rustic relaxed feel to it.  Lots of fresh white flowers placed stragically around and lovely little candles flickering in the distance. 

Anna is a great person to speak to, she is very welcoming and warm.

I thoroughly enjoyed doing such a gorgeous wedding at this beautiful location.
