Macedon Ranges Weddings

The ultimate country wedding destination

Dreaming of a beautiful country wedding? Macedon Ranges wedding venues offer couples the opportunity to design their big day with a true country vibe. The destination is also particularly appealing due to its close proximity to Melbourne.

The region has everything you could wish for and more when it comes to planning a unique wedding you’ll cherish forever.

It’s the home to trail blazing photographers, in-demand floral stylists, celebrants, talented cake decorators, brilliant caterers, event organisers, mobile vintage caravan bars and more. You can even arrange llamas to attend your reception!

Wedding venues in the Macedon Ranges

The Macedon Ranges can cater to both intimate and large weddings.

The region also happens to be a boutique wine destination, with many wineries catering to indoor and outdoor ceremonies and receptions.

In addition, you have the option of historic stone and weatherboard churches, beautiful homesteads, grand lodges, heritage gardens, rustic barns, pubs and even golf courses… You can even get married at Hanging Rock Reserve, including their on-site licensed Hanging Rock Cafe.

Combine an abundance of wedding venue options with a bevy of talented wedding suppliers, and you have everything you need for the perfect celebration.

Picture perfect wedding backdrops

From Hanging Rock to Mount Macedon, farmland to pine forests. A local wedding photographer is spoiled for choice when it comes to stunning natural backdrops and rustic, heritage buildings.

Go on a drive through the Macedon Ranges and you’ll see original dry stone rock walls bordering farms with bouncing baby lambs and shaggy Highland cows.

Then there’s our vineyards, charismatic villages and picture-perfect Kyneton Botanic Gardens and Malmsbury Botanic Gardens. The gardens are best captured in early spring when masses of daffodils are in bloom, or during autumn in all their colourful glory.

The old bluestone viaduct bridge in Malmsbury is also a unique spot for a special sunset shot.

Best season for Macedon Ranges weddings

There are four distinct seasons in the Macedon Ranges, each allowing for a beautifully themed celebration that embraces local produce, flowers and foliage.

A spring or summer wedding in a garden marquee or vineyard is always popular. Local peony and rose farms such as Crofters Fold, Spring Hill Peony Farm and Romswood Peony Farm are extremely busy at this time of year, supplying fresh flowers to talented local floral designers and stylists.

In autumn you have the backdrop of beautiful leaves, whether it be along Macedon’s Avenue of Honour, in a garden or among the vines.

While winter is the perfect season for an intimate indoor wedding with crackling fireplaces and mulled wine. In fact, as winter is traditionally the low season for weddings, you’re likely to get good deals and availability over this period. Here’s 10 pro tips for the perfect winter wedding in the Macedon Ranges to inspire you.
