Beach weddings are alluring for more reasons than one, and being out in the open, in a romantic oceanfront setting while the wind and waves sing their praises over your union, is one of those.

It is also romantic and beautiful and fulfils a fantasy many of us dream of, whether bride or groom. There's something so liberating about professing your love to one another on a sandy shore with the waves behind.

They are far from the typical traditional wedding, which is often hosted within a church or another elaborate indoor setting. That is not to say there aren't other outdoor wedding types that aren't appealing, such as the garden wedding, for example, but beach weddings are definitely in a category of their own.

If a natural setting like this is calling you, check our top list of Beach and Waterside Wedding Accommodations in Melbourne below.

Nunnery History The Nunnery was built in 1888 for prominent English Physician Dr Thomas Hewlett. His son Herbert Hewlett was one of the pioneers of x-ray technology in Australia, and x-ray equipment was installed here in 1902. In 1944 the archdiocese purchased the building for the Daughters of Charity for 5,732 pounds. The Daughters of Charity renamed it St Vincent's Hall and went about their pastoral/parish work in Fitzroy and Collingwood. 

A chapel and a confessional were built in a large room on the ground floor for contemplation and prayer, and later small services were held. In 1960 the sisters opened St Mary's House of Welcome, located on Brunswick st. The Sisters also took young women aged 16-19 as boarders who came from the country to work or study in the city. Rumour has it that the Nuns were strict on their young borders, curfews and attire checks were common. Gentleman callers were only allowed as far as the front lounge. 

In 1979, the house accommodated young women from Vietnam and Cambodia. In 1989 the Refugee accommodation was discontinued, and the Nuns moved to North Carlton to continue their work. In 1990 the Townshend family purchased the building from the Daughters of Charity and established one of Melbourne's first backpacker hostels for young international travellers and called it "The Nunnery". Today The Nunnery is regarded as one of the best backpackers in Australia and has expanded over the years to cater to a greater range of travellers. Now the new "Nun's" have backpacker's accommodation through to B&B style accommodation, and the curfew is long, long gone.

The Nunnery Team

We have a small friendly team at the Nunnery. The team are here are to offer you the best stay ever.

The Nuns are all locals who can give you the best advice on Melbourne. When they're not helping out the guests, they're checking bookings, cleaning up and dreaming up better ways to help you.

Who's cleaning your loo? Don't underestimate the humble housekeeper. They are all intelligent internationals that come from far and wide to study and live in Melbourne.

Gaz is our resident superman. He knows the place like the back of his hand. He maintains the buildings and gardens and keeps everything running in tip-top shape.

Canvas House - Beach and Waterside Wedding Accommodations in Melbourne

Canvas House Beach And Waterside Wedding Accommodations In Melbourne

canvashouse.com.au

+61 478 056 390

Canvas House. Where great events happen.  

From weddings, private dinners and corporate meetings to press events and fashion shows. 

In the heart of South Melbourne lies one of Melbourne's newest and most exciting event spaces, Canvas House. Loft-like, with exposed brick walls and beams, black steel frame inspired doors and windows, Canvas House is the ideal contemporary alternative to the customary event space. 

Its design is noticeably inspired by the way we live, making it a warm and welcoming space from the moment you walk through the front doors. Equipped with modern-day technology yet staying true to its architectural integrity, the space lends itself to limitless branding opportunities and has the ability to be easily transformed. 

Our Kitchen

The hub of our main gallery space is our kitchen. Our beautifully designed kitchen is appointed with Ariston appliances throughout. The uses for this space are endless - think celebrity chefs are cooking for small intimate gatherings, film and photography shoots, corporate team building events, cooking schools, informal market research focus groups, or simply hanging around the island bench after a long corporate offsite and enjoying great food, wine and some downtime with your colleagues. But don't let this space fool you. Behind closed doors is a full state of the art catering kitchen.

We love celebrating at Canvas House. 

We like to say that we don't do functions. Instead, we help create great experiences. So whether you're looking for a space to celebrate a milestone birthday, somewhere to tie the knot, or you need to pull together an awesome corporate event, your guests are guaranteed to have an amazing evening. 

Have a particular caterer in mind? No problem.

We want you to feel at home at Canvas House, which is why you can bring in your own suppliers and caterers who can have full use of all of the equipment that we have onsite. As you can imagine, we have also worked with some of the best in the industry, so if you would like some recommendations, we would love to help. 

Or maybe you are thinking about food trucks or something a little different to the norm. Too easy. Our doors from the courtyard fold back neatly, so it is easy to drive vehicles from the rear laneway. 

Building Features

  • 6m high cathedral style ceiling with black steel exposed beams
  • Skylights that flood the main event space with natural light
  • Polished concrete floor, original exposed brick and v-groove panel walls
  • Suspended fireplace
  • Outside seating areas at the front of the building and private rear outdoor courtyard
  • Vehicle access via a rear door (up to 2.6m)
  • Privater lounge room for hosts to access and use our boardroom for suppliers.

Facilities

  • Men's, women's, disabled and separate staff toilet
  • Heating and cooling
  • State of the art speaker system with DJ points throughout the venue plus 2 x handheld microphones, 2 x headset microphones and 1 x 75 inch TV. 
  • Additional power points at the end of each roof truss for ease of styling, e.g. fairy lights
  • Presentation kitchen that can be used for cooking demonstrations or by private chefs for a chefs table experience. It is also ideal for film shoots and can be easily converted into a bar for larger functions. It contains a 4 door bar fridge and dishwasher.
  • The additional bar at the front of the venue with 3 door bar fridge, glasses, dishwasher and coffee machine
  • Caterers kitchen with 20 tray combi oven, double fryer, gas oven and cooktop, cool room, fridge, freezer and a separate dishwashing room with a pass-through dishwasher
  • Recently upgraded power supply.
  • Black drapes that can be suspended on three truss lines to separate the large warehouse space into two.

Canvas House. Sense of place. Sense of home

Having worked in the advertising and marketing field for over 2 decades, our Director Nash Tetlow has sat through her fair share of research groups, offsite strategy days and conferences.

Tired of what was being offered – cold, uninspiring and soulless rooms that hindered creative thinking and natural interaction, Nash realised there was a need for a space that was beautifully authentic, genuine and that encouraged openness. Taking the brave leap out of the security of the corporate world, Nash embarked on an incredible journey. 

After 12 months of searching, she came across the space that is now called Canvas House. Not afraid of hard work, Nash was on the tools alongside the builders, ensuring that no stone was left unturned and that her vision for the space came to life. Six months later, Canvas House was launched and has quickly become one of Melbourne's hottest venues.

It's all in a name

We are often asked how the name Canvas House was born. People often mistakenly think our name is a subtle reference to the blank canvas nature of the space and its ability to be easily and quickly transformed. In fact, when looking for a name, Nash wanted it to reference the history of South Melbourne. 

The area, now known as South Melbourne, was first settled by the Europeans in the 1840s and became known as Emerald Hill. During the Victorian Gold Rush of 1851, a tent city known as Canvas Town was established, and the area soon became home to tens of thousands of migrants from around the world.

When working on the design of the space, Nash knew that she needed to incorporate the house into the name, and upon learning the history of the area, she knew immediately that Canvas House was not only a way to pay homage but to celebrate the purpose of the space - bringing people together.

A wedding venue located in the heart of Geelong's vibrant waterfront precinct.

Located on the picturesque Geelong Waterfront, The Pier Geelong is the most versatile wedding venue in the Geelong and Victorian region, offering a complete wedding experience with a range of spaces and services to accommodate every moment of your big day.

Under an hour from Melbourne's CBD and just 20 minutes from Avalon Airport, The Pier Geelong is a truly unique function and wedding venue perched 250 metres out over the water on Geelong's iconic Cunningham Pier.

At The Pier Geelong, our reputation goes beyond our bay views and uniquely designed function and wedding centre. We are considered the leaders in premium event hospitality. Our philosophy is to continue being the pioneers in event catering and hospitality in the Geelong and Victorian region.

A stunning wedding venue for all seasons!

Located on the picturesque Cunningham Pier perched 250 metres out over the water, The Pier Geelong is the most versatile wedding venue in the Victorian region. Our ceremony and reception venue is the perfect location for all seasons, offering effortless natural beauty with 360-degree views of sparkling water, occasional pods of dolphins swimming past, yachts sailing in the afternoon and amazing sunsets over the bay.

Our enclosed glass Terrace features retractable windows and welcomes the fresh ocean breeze and sound of lapping waves against the pier, allowing you to hold your wedding by the water regardless of the weather.

  • Stay in the one spot and enjoy your Wedding Ceremony followed by…the big reveal, your Wedding Reception!
  • Add a point of difference and entertain your guests at Wah Bah, perfect for your guests to relax prior … or to keep partying afterwards.

The pier is proud to be announced as the 2019 Geelong Wedding Business Awards Reception Venue of the Year, as well as an Official Silver Approved Australian Bridal Industry Academy Partner.

Wedding Ceremonies On The Waterfront

Say 'I do' at our iconic wedding venue on the waterfront

We LOVE the unique backdrop our beautiful wedding venue offers for wedding ceremonies, and we think you and your guests will too. Offering water views on the pier, sunsets over the bay and yachts casually sailing past, The Pier Geelong sets the scene for romance and true love!

Firstly, we have the truly unique Lillias Room, which includes The Terrace – which is an exquisite indoor room featuring full glass sides and a glass ceiling, providing picturesque views of Eastern Beach and the Royal Geelong Yacht Club. On a perfect day, the windows can be opened, allowing you to experience the smell of the fresh ocean and feel the warm sea breeze. This area is suitable all year round, no matter the weather conditions. You have the flexibility to have the area open or closed during your waterfront ceremony. Pair your ceremony with a welcome glass of bubbles for your guest for an effortless chic start to your ceremony!

Your guests will love how effortlessly the proceedings move from ceremony to reception without having to leave the venue – guests can venture to reserved areas in Wah Wah Gee or Wah Bah for pre-reception drinks whilst you are having your wedding photos taken. This allows guests to mingle and stay together before heading back into the Lillias Room for the wedding reception.

Also, keep in mind – If you decide to have your wedding off-site, it is comforting to know that by having your reception at Pier Geelong, you can have a plan B for the ceremony if the weather is unkind!

What we can include in your ceremony at The Pier Geelong:

  • Registry Table with white linen
  • Guest chairs set up
  • Tealight candles
  • Ceremony arches
  • Arrive in style by car, boat, yacht or helicopter!
  • Include everyone special to you in your wedding ceremony… including your beloved pets!
