Melbourne Weddings

With a vast choice of wedding venues in Melbourne the challenge is on to find one best suited to your nuptials. The network of places to officiate your wedding across the city includes a veritable smorgasbord of options. But once you start to narrow down the various venue types and package inclusions on offer, it doesn't take long to filter a shortlist of 3 or 4 wedding venues to seriously consider.

The question is, where to start? Here's 4 questions to ask yourself that will help you find wedding venues best suited to your needs:

  1. Do you want an all-in-one wedding venue where your ceremony & reception is in the same place?
  2. Do you want an all-inclusive wedding package where venue hire, catering and table settings are provided for you?
  3. Do you have a particular style of ceremony venue in mind? Garden, waterfront, warehouse, indoor, outdoor?
  4. Do you have a particular type of reception venue in mind? Industrial, ballroom, modern, white walls?

Melbourne Ceremony Locations

There are two main types of wedding ceremony venues in Melbourne; 1) all in one wedding venues where your ceremony and reception are in the same place or 2) ceremony-only locations such as parks and churches. 

For all-in-one venues where your entire day is held in one easy location simply have a search through our Melbourne venues listed above. Nearly all of these wedding locations have one or more ceremony areas onsite.

Here are some popular wedding ceremony locations in Melbourne where you can get married before heading to your chosen reception venue:
