The best wedding venues on the Mornington Peninsula.
After capturing 100+ weddings on the Mornington Peninsula I thought I would write a blog post about my favourite venues. I feel so blessed to live in such a wonderful place where everything is at our doorstep: secluded beaches, wineries, barns..you name it! When getting married on the Mornington Peninsula there are so many options!! This is why it is such a popular destination for both local and overseas / interstate couples who opt for a destination wedding.
So here we go!
Stillwater at Crittenden is my favourite wedding venue for several reasons. Firstly, this venue is just magnificent! There’s a beautiful lake where couple can stroll admiring the sunset; the venue is surrounded by wineries that offer plenty of photo opportunities and there’s a grand tree-lined entrance, perfect for bridal party and car shots!
Another perk is that brides can get ready at the villas, the prettiest lake houses with the most stunning view. My brides love getting ready 1 minute away from their ceremony and reception venue (everything is literally there!) and also going back to the villa when the reception is finished: no driving needed!
Finally: the food and organisation! Stillwater is always super organised. The timeline is never running late and the food is just delicious!
Here are some of my couples who have said “I do” at Stillwater:
Another favourite of mine is definitely All Smiles. What makes this venue is definitely the view! The big secluded beach, the rocks and that stunning sunset always offer the perfect backdrop for stunning photos.
The reception is a canapés affair, so this venue is ideals for couples who are more laid back and enjoy to party!
I don’t know if it is those rose gardens, or the twinkling lights under the pine trees or maybe it’s the vines. Lindenderry is such a beautiful venue! Rich of photo opportunities!
Tanglewood is a new venue on the Mornington Peninsula but already extremely popular. Couples love this venue because of the wood chapel, the lake with quaint dock and of course the magnificent wood barn for receptions.
They also offer accomodation on site for the couple! This venue is a definite must-see!
Located in Sorrento, The Baths is the perfect venue if you wish to have a beach, yet sophisticated wedding. For the relaxed couples who want an elegant, beach-vibe venue this is the place for you! The venue has wonderful views and a quaint dock at the front.
Morning Star Estate is one of the most prestigious wedding venues on the Peninsula. What makes this venue so unique is its history (one of the oldest venues on the Mornington Peninsula) and the rose gardens and fountains which offer amazing wedding photos opportunities.
Last but not least Baxter Barn. This venue is for the most laid back couples who want together married in a barn, with the most rustic, laid back and pretty setting. This venue has beautiful gardens and extensive grounds for wedding images
