Far from the old school dingy wedding reception venues, Yarra Valley has raised the industry standard by delivering impeccable cuisine and fine wines complimented by a backdrop of the visually stunning Yarra Valley. Having photographed venues all over the world, Yarra Valley is home to some of our favourite wedding venues. Here are our top 5.
Stones Of The Yarra Valley
As most of you know Stones is a fave of ours for SO many reasons. It’s hard to know where to start. Besides the fact that the grounds are absolutely stunning and for some reason as soon as you drive down that beautiful oak lined driveway your worries seem to melt away.
The Stones Of The Yarra Valley is a well oiled machine; each and every wedding is just as seamless and perfect as the next. It’s a true reflection of owners, Vonnie & Steve’s phenomenal leadership skills and high expectations. From the stunning Yarra Valley views, to the beautifully manicured grounds, intimate chapel and converted barn, all the way to their sustainability efforts. We could actually go on forever, but as they say, a photo speaks a thousand words, and we’ve definitely spent a bit of time photographing this beautiful property. Here are some of our faves :)

2. Zonzo Estate Yarra Valley
We love how Rob, the owner of Zonzo Estate, has transformed the property to reflect his passion for Napa Valley and it’s modern architecture and contrasting balance of wood & steal. The stunning views framed by the dark interior of the dining room, creates a warm intimate experience, perfect for a big long table feast shared with all of your faves.
We can’t help but feel at home while sharing a delicious roast lamb and let’s not forget to mention the most authentic woodfire pizza’s. The addition of the Zonzo Estate wines has got us hooked! Our favourite wine being the 2015 Zonzo Shiraz .
