Weddings held at Acacia Ridge Yarra Valley in Melbourne.
Within the beautiful wine region of Yarra Valley lies a sweet rustic venue called Acacia Ridge where wonderfully crafted local wines are created and intimate weddings held. It’s here that we first experienced planning a wedding in Melbourne for Jennet and Eric earlier in 2020. With stunning views of grape vines stretched across acreage and mountain ranges so it’s a really romantic location for a Melbourne destination wedding in Australia!
Hosting up to 200 guests in a clear marquee and under the stars is an incredible thing to create.
A beautiful venue with panoramic views of vineyards and Melbourne’s famous Yarra Valley, so it’s a gorgeous venue to have your wedding. What makes Acacia Ridge wedding venue impressive is it is set on a family-run vineyard amongst mountains and rolling hills of beautiful vines, away from the concrete jungle of Melbourne’s CBD. So the views of the skies are clear and stunning at night.
The marquee is a permanent setup so there isn’t the usual marquee hire, setup and packdown costs.
Most marquee wedding involves finding a marquee location, hire the marquee structure and all the amenities needed, and then pack down once all the celebrations happen. You could imagine the costs is prohibitive each time so having a permanent marquee avoids all these usual costs! That’s almost a savings of $20-30k, and in some instances it’s more than that, so any savings to be had, while not impeding on your wedding is a great win.
What other aspects of Acacia Ridge that we love? Getting to access it anytime we need to bump-in! This is so so good to be able to not stress about limited bump-in time, or even ensuring packdown happens within 1 hour. After all it takes time, love, sweat, laughter and sometimes tears to create what we do!
