More on Mornington Peninsula Weddings

The Morning Peninsula, Victoria, is located just one hour south of Melbourne by car, making it quite easy for your out-of-state and international guests to reach your wedding celebrations and venues. The peninsula is bordered by the beautiful Port Phillip Bay on the West and the Western Port Bay on the East (with French Island right across the bay). Since the area is surrounded by water, there are of course many waterfront and beach wedding venues to be found in this region.

The area is ideal for outdoor wedding venues and celebrations, with beach weddings being especially lovely.

Weather and Climate Considerations

The Mornington Peninsula Shire, Victoria, and surrounding areas have the warmest days in the months of December to March, which is when we suggest booking your wedding reception and ceremony venues, especially if you intend on having an outdoor wedding event. However, event the winter months in the Mornington Peninsula are quite warm, with a low of only 6oC on the coldest day of the year.

Also, these months experience little precipitation, with an average of approximately 4 – 5 days of rainfall compared to the wetter, winter months of the year in May to September. Still, in the drier months, you shouldn’t risk the rain—don’t forget to ask your wedding ceremony and reception venues whether they have any backup, indoor locations for inclement weather.
