To enjoy the engaged part! It’s like Christmas .. a huge part of getting married is the anticipation and planning right up until the big day!

Being able to put our prospective engaged couples instantly at ease. We have such a rich and long history of weddings at Yarra Valley Lodge – we know what we are doing, and we do it extremely well.

Seeing it all come together, the guests arriving, the excitement in the air. Everyone loves a wedding! And seeing how the scene has been set. Every wedding is so unique and personal to the bride and groom, it’s just wonderful to see how individuality shines through each and every wedding we have at Yarra Valley Lodge.
