Payne's Rise Wedding Reception Venue Ballarat

Payne S Rise Wedding Reception


(03) 5964 2504

About Payne's Rise Wedding Reception

Paynes Rise Wines is a small family-run vineyard and winery in the Upper Yarra Valley specializing in small-batch wines made from carefully selected fruit from their vineyard in Seville, Victoria. It is the culmination of Tim and Narelle Cullen's many years of dedication, hard work, and passion. Payne's Rise grew out of a deep affection for the Yarra Valley, its people, and its history. Tim and Narelle Cullen, the owners, run the company. Before building the Payne's Rise cellar door, both lived and worked in the Yarra Valley and ran local companies. Tim worked in a local orchard as a teenager while earning a business degree and a Viticulture diploma. Following that, Charles Sturt University offered an applied science degree in Viticulture. In 1999, he started working with a local agribusiness, and he continues to consult as an agronomist/viticulturist around the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula. Take a look at our selection of cool-climate wines.

Cabernet Sauvignon was the first variety planted in 1999. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc are planted. Our vineyard and wines are still evolving. We've learned how to best harness the expression of location after 20 years of growing vines on our distinctive tiny property in Seville. As a result, our vineyard now has a distinct voice, which we hope to capture and express in clean and honest wines. Franco D'Anna is the man for the job. Since 2008, Franco has collaborated with Tim on several projects. No chemicals or enzymes are used in the winemaking process, which is a straightforward, conventional approach. It's understated and mild, with an oak regime that reflects the season.

About Nudo Wedding Venue & Reception

The day itself: one of the most memorable days of your life. What about the preparations? But that's another story. The months you spend preparing for your wedding should be full of anticipation and excitement for the most glorious day of your life. However, they frequently result in a stressful, expensive, and overwhelming experience. What's the worst part? Most couples don't realize they're in over their heads until they're well into the road. By that time, the strain is building, decision fatigue is setting in, and it's all starting to feel a little too much.

This is where Nudo enters the picture. We're a dynamic team of planners and designers (and a shoulder to cry on) who will expertly guide you through every step of your wedding planning process. Take the time to comprehend your vision and what matters most while attending to the zillion minor (and often tiresome) aspects you don't have time for. Then, when the big day arrives, we'll put it all together to give your guests an experience they'll remember for years.

Our Trademarks

We're more than simply another event planning firm. Nudo is more than simply a talented group of wedding planners and event designers; we also own and operate four of Melbourne's most beautiful wedding venues. Traditional wedding venues, as well as outside gardens and modest places for your micro wedding, are all available. We realized a long ago that we had an intuitive understanding of how venues should operate from the perspective of the consumer experience, and that if we had our own venues, we would do things differently. We also offer floristry and styling by Anatomy of Flowers, one of Melbourne's most in-demand event florists, as part of the Nudo family. Kim Brindell, co-creator of Nudo, was the founder of Anatomy of Flowers before launching Nudo with a much larger aim to improve the wedding experience. Will Campbell, another Nudo co-founder, has been a wedding photographer for years and has always dreamed of forming a photography collective of the best photographers and videographers to produce work that leaves every couple awestruck. It was there that Art of Grace was conceived.

Chateau Wyuna Wedding Reception Venue Ballarat

Chateau Wyuna Wedding Venue


03 9736 2555

About Chateau Wyuna Wedding Venue

Our goal is to create lasting memories by providing the couple with the wedding of their dreams. As a result, you can rest assured that we will make the process simple and fun for you, allowing you to focus on what really matters: commemorating a significant life milestone and making lasting memories. Clarence Earle, an Australian artist, designed Chateau Wyuna as his dream home. The original structures were built during a nine-year period in the early 1900s, inside a loop of the Olinda Creek in bellbird country.

The fireplaces and chimney were built initially, with an excellent stonemason placing the carefully picked stones according to Earle's specifications. Earle, with the help of Pat and Jim Clancy, constructed the main structure from here (who worked on and off with him for six years). A six-horse team cut, barked, and hauled the timber three miles to the location, where it was left to season for five years before being used. The biggest logs are 60 feet in length. The logs were left undisturbed except where they were broad-axe dressed to sit properly together. The adze was used to give a textured smooth finish to all square timbers, such as interior doors. The majority of the stringybark furniture is built-in. The marble bath, which was fed with water from the creek via a copper faucet, is the only non-local feature of the house. Dame Nellie Melba, a personal friend of Earle's and a frequent guest, requested that this modern amenity be added.

The Log Cabin was offered to the public as a restaurant called 'Chateau Wyuna' shortly after WWII, with this unique history. When in Melbourne, Burt Lancaster (the actor) was a notable guest. The name 'Wyuna' is derived from an aboriginal term that means 'onrushing streams.' The original buildings have been joined since WWII to create the location that it is now – intriguing, unique, character-filled, and old-world charm, making it a reception centre unlike any other. The Log Cabin is presently being used as a bridal getaway, complete with an ensuite and office.

The magnificent weatherboard church from Montrose was a charming addition to Chateau Wyuna in 1985. The former Church of Christ, which was built in 1909, became too small to house all of its attendees, so it was moved to its current location. Both the original log cottage and the chapel are on the National Register of Historic Places. The staff at Chateau Wyuna is proud of its history as well as the wedding and event services it provides. Every aspect is discussed with our clients to guarantee that your big occasion is exactly how you want it to be and that everyone who attends remembers it.

The Room is suitable for either lunches or dinners, with fairy lights above the dance floor and a big multi-purpose space called the Alpine Lounge (good for photo booths, children's play areas, or just a relaxing lounge area to retreat to). It has a lot of charm, with warm wood and a nice atmosphere. The bar is an original element of the home. The Treetop Room, which is set amongst a canopy of trees, features soothing colours and windows on two sides, providing panoramic views from the wrap-around balcony and rebuilt patio. It can accommodate up to 80 people, making it ideal for those looking for a more intimate setting. It's perfect for a laid-back lunchtime wedding or a magical evening affair with fairy lights shimmering over the dancefloor.

Also, keep in mind that the Log Cabin Bridal Retreat is exclusively yours. It's wonderful for photos (and a great back-up if the weather isn't cooperating!) as well as a place for the wedding party to unwind after the ceremony

Banyandah Homestead Wedding Reception Venue Ballarat

Banyandah Homstead Wedding Reception



About Banyandah Homestead Wedding Reception

Our trek to Banyandah Homestead took several decades to complete. Our family has always resided in this wonderful corner of the world, and we raised our children on the adjacent farm for a long period. Driving the paddock blast to catch the school bus, early mornings spent feeding calves, countless days spent cleaning up the forest floor, large open landscapes, and lake fishing were all part of our upbringing and lifestyle.

We moved away from the area as our children grew older to explore other opportunities, but our hearts yearned to return to the place where we genuinely felt at home and to complete our dream. Except for cattle grazing and sleeping on the fertile meadow, the farming land where Banyandah lies has largely remained unchanged throughout the years. We were aware that the land was privately owned, and we made numerous attempts to acquire it before a chance arrived just as we were about to give up.

It was the best decision we've ever made, and it's turned into our own little slice of heaven. We've worked really hard to transform this lovely property into the incredible venue we knew it could be, and we're thrilled to be able to share it with some very special people on their most important day. The farm is called 'Banyandah' Homestead after the aboriginal phrase for 'house on the lake.' On the water, we have a lovely home. We are overjoyed that our vision is finally coming to fruition. We hope you enjoy every second of your vacation as much as we do.

About Sovereign Hill Wedding Reception

Sovereign Hill is a living museum depicting Ballarat's history as a goldrush boomtown. In 1851, gold was discovered here, resulting in the world's largest alluvial gold rush. Ballarat evolved quickly from a tranquil pastoral town to a splendid provincial metropolis built on the wealth generated by its gold. Sovereign Hill's Outdoor Museum, which spans 15 hectares of a former gold mining site, recreates the gold rushes through a live hamlet complete with diggings, underground mines, costumed people, coach rides, and 1850s businesses, trades, schools, and houses.

AURA, an evening sound-and-light show depicting the history and significance of gold in our region, complements the Outdoor Museum experience. Sovereign Hill first opened its doors on November 29, 1970. It was conceived in the 1960s as a result of community groups' desire to preserve the city's vivid goldrush history as well as the story of its impact on our country. Sovereign Hill, now an Australian tourism icon and a multiple award winner, gets over 450,000 visitors each year. The Outdoor Museum is known around the world as a living museum with uncommon trades, working machinery and displays, costumed interpreters, and visitor involvement. A total of 350 people are employed to bring our goldrush story to life. They are aided by over 250 volunteers who assist with curatorial work and tour guiding and help bring the Outdoor Museum to life.

Overnewton Castle Wedding Reception Venue Ballarat

Overnewton Castle Wedding Receptions


03 9331 6367

About Overnewton Castle Wedding Receptions

William Taylor completed Overnewton Castle in 1849. Just west of Keilor township, the Scotsman purchased 13,000 acres of prime grazing property. Taylor constructed a one-story bluestone colonial dwelling. There were six rooms in total, each with enormous shuttered windows and extensive verandahs. The homestead was perched on a slight incline above Keilor, with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. During the 1850s, Keilor grew in importance as a popular stopover for people heading to the Victorian goldfields. Two new schools, a new bridge, and a new hotel were among the projects.

The grandeur of William Taylor's dreams did not become clear until he returned from a journey to Scotland in 1859. He began transforming the working colonial household into a tiny Scottish Baronial Castle. The Stately two-storied wing was erected, as well as the bluestone Dairy & Butcher Shop and the Private Billiard Room, which is today utilized as a wedding chapel. Overnewton was designed in the Victorian Tudor style, which was influenced by architecture from the 16th century in England and Scotland. The rough textured masonry, deep pitched roofs, and overhanging battlement corner towers are all hallmarks of the Scottish baronial architecture. The influence of French architecture can be seen in the candle snuffer roofs. The estate's bluestone walls were mined on-site and finished with yellow gravel and stucco. The Taylor family crest - a mailed arm and fist enclosing a dagger and the motto "Semper Fidelis" (always faithful) – is carved above the huge windows of the main bedroom, and the carved initials of HT, T 1859, and WT are carved above numerous other windows.

The farmhouse had over 35 rooms after this addition was completed, including 7 bedrooms (the master bedroom had a tiny circle room and a dressing room), a schoolroom, library, drawing room, 2 kitchens, 5 servants rooms, and the Billiard room. Many original features remain, including tiles in the baths, a claw foot tub, and an ancient IXL wood burner in the kitchen. A bluestone butchery and dairy, lamp room, boot room, coachhouse, stables, woolshed, shearing sheds, and machine shed are among the estate's outbuildings. William Taylor died in 1903 at the age of 85, and his wife Helen died six months later at the age of 71. Their eldest son, William Henry, managed the estate until his death in 1939 at the age of 81, and his wife, Beatrice, died in 1948. The Taylor family owned the estate until 1959.

In 1959, the Carr family bought Overnewton. They used part of the property as a family home and the lower rooms as a wedding reception centre while raising their three children there. Dr. L. J. Norton bought Overnewton Estate in 1975 with the intention of raising his family there. The property has undergone numerous modifications and changes since then, including the installation of mains water in 1976 and the fire that destroyed the old timber stables in 1980. Dr. Norton purchased 6 acres of land, which included a drystone wall and some of the ancient outbuildings, from the original owners.

Overnewton has weathered the years well, and it looks much the same today as it did when it was first erected. It has undergone various alterations throughout the years, hidden among the old trees. Horses and carriages, gas lights, and servants are no longer in use, but the old-world grace and charm, as well as the elegance, grandeur, and ambience of a bygone era, remain. The estate has been refurbished over the years, and a beautiful dining room has been built to the estate, making it a true hidden gem.

Garden ceremonies are one of our favourites at Orchards; they're stunningly lovely and always create a magical setting for any wedding. Location is key when it comes to creating a lovely outdoor ceremony. That is why we walk you around our extensive estate, showing you our favourite spots, each with its own beauty and character. Keep your styling simple and let the surroundings speak for itself. Should the clouds open up, we can transfer your ceremony into the atrium or onto the homestead verandah!

It's all about the journey and making your dreams come true at Orchards. While you're having your photos taken, have your ceremony in one place and your guests enjoy drinks and canapés in another. Reunite with your guests before moving on to the next beautiful site for your celebration and dancing. During your private tour, we will show you around our beautiful property and talk about your dream wedding weekend. If you've already decided on a wedding date, we can hold it for you for seven days so you can make your final decision.

About Cave Hill Creek Wedding Reception

We build experiences and lifelong memories at Cave Hill Creek, whether it's the joy of school camp, the thrill of walking the Beeripmo Track, or the treasured location where you got married! We are well-known and well-respected for our innovative, high-quality, and enjoyable activities, as well as our real warmth and beautiful natural surroundings. We won Gold at the Australian Tourism Awards in 2018. Ian and Julie Chandler established Cave Hill Creek in 1988. Cave Hill Creek was then just a sheep pasture with around 25 mature trees, no lake, buildings, or lovely gardens. On this magnificent tract of property at the top of the Raglan Valley, a farmer and a teacher spotted an extraordinary chance to develop a spectacular lake, group accommodation, and function venue.

Cave Hill Creek evolved steadily with a passion for hospitality, hard labour, and a keen eye for the environment, much like their young family. Tim and Angela Chandler, second-generation owners, now run Cave Hill Creek. It's a year-round organization that hosts over 10,000 people each year during camps, walks, and weddings. Guests are rewarded with fresh and interesting experiences every time they visit because of a commitment to tourism and education excellence, as well as a continuous improvement initiative. Cave Hill Creek was honoured with a gold medal at the Australian Tourism Awards in 2018 and was entered into the renowned Victorian Tourism Hall of Fame after receiving three gold medals in a row at the RACV Victorian Tourism Awards.

The origins of the term Cave Hill Creek are frequently enquired about. It's actually fairly straightforward; the creek that runs through our lake is called 'Cave Hill Creek.' In the Mount Cole State Forest, Cave Hill Creek spills over Raglan Falls and down the northern slopes of Cave Hill. Visitors to Cave Hill Creek can try abseiling at Raglan Falls, which is located on the granite cliffs. The roots of the term Cave Hill follow a similar rationale. For instance, on Cave Hill's southern slopes, a vast cavern was formed when the lower half of a large rock wall fell, creating a large overhang. The cave is known as Bukkertillible by the nearby Beeripmo Balug aborigines. When driving between Beaufort and Buangor on the Western Highway M8, it may be seen easily to the north. The emblem for Cave Hill Creek was likewise inspired by the nearby woodland. It has a Grevillea montis-cole that is in bloom (commonly known as Grevillea Mount Cole or The Glut Grevillea). From the Glut picnic site to Cave Hill Creek, the grevillea is indigenous to the eastern slopes. It's a tiny shrub with a red blossom that blooms from October to March. In Victoria, Grevillea montis-cole is classified as uncommon.
