More on Yarra Valley Weddings

The Yarra Valley is popular for its wines (chardonnay, sparkling, and pinot noir), its beautiful parks, wildlife, and among Melbournians and Victorians as a lovely wedding destination. This region is located about 90 km away from Melbourne, and is ideal for winery and country / rustic, weddings, but also has luxurious estates, golf clubs, and gardens.


Popular Yarra Valley Wedding Venues & Prices

You can expect to find many winery wedding venues in the Yarra Valley, that offer spectacular views of the rolling hills, rivers (including the Yarra River), and mountain ranges. Most wedding venues in this region will charge between $95 – $225 per head, so for a 120-person wedding, you’re looking at $11,400 – $27,000 (before venue hire, taxes, gratuities, and all other prices; this price is also reflective of those venues that offer catering).


Travel & Hotel Accommodations

The closest airports to the Yarra Valley region are the Melbourne (Tullamarine) Airport and Essendon Airport, both of which offer and connect to international and domestic flights, making it convenient for those couples looking for a destination wedding or for those couples who have family and friends throughout Australia. A drive from Melbourne to will take just over an hour.


There are a number of hotels (averaging about $200 AUD per night) and spas in the area that will appeal to brides and bridesmaids looking for massages, facials, and other treatments the night before the wedding! Don’t forget to book blocks at hotels and ask for preferential pricing for your wedding guests!


Weather and Climate Considerations

The winters in Yarra Valley can be chilly, so the summer months (November to March) are ideal for weddings, especially those that will be hosted outdoors. However, you can expect a pleasant coolness during the summer nights, making outdoor receptions lovely and ideal for a bit of dancing! It’ll be the warmest in January and February (12oC –  27oC), and the most precipitation will occur in the months of June to October. If you’re having an outdoors game, make sure to ask if they have a Plan B for inclement weather.
