Winter weddings - venue review
From cosy, rustic wineries to urban winter hotspots exuding glamour and style, we have your winter wedding location covered. A list of our five favourite winter themes and venues that fit the occasion perfectly.
Myer Mural Hall
A gala space of refinement and elegance
In the heart of Melbourne lies a graceful European ballroom with soaring ceilings, sweeping stairs and city views espied through unique leadlight windows. This luxe space is a winter indulgence of warm colours, soft furnishings and the finest of finishes. Located on the top floor of the iconic Myer city store, Mural Hall is so called because of the impressive collection of 10 original Napier Waller murals displaying influential figures from the arts, opera, literature, dance and fashion.
Filled with extravagant reminders of the past, Mural Hall offers a sense of avant-gardism with a superfluity overlay.
Mt Duneed Estate
Exceptional winery experience
Mt Duneed Estate offers two unique event spaces. Choose a relaxed, intimate dinner in the Vineyard Room or an extravagant banquet amongst the wine barrels in the rustic Barrel Hall. Memorable receptions can also be complemented by romantic ceremonies nestled amongst the olive groves. Overlooking acres of vineyards and lush open spaces, Mt Duneed Estate provides a picturesque backdrop. Enjoy the peaceful views from the sandstone patio with a glass of local wine.
Whale Beach, Sydney
A coastal delight with a view
You have to say there is nothing like being indoors looking out on a beach on a winters day. Located on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Jonah’s is your winter wedding beachside escape. With a cliff top garden, and its acclaimed restaurant the added bonus is the sweeping views of the ocean. Luxurious and discreet, if the weather permits have the ceremony outside followed by a warming dinner with the sound of crashing waves your neighbour. Jonah’s prides itself on its friendly and casual atmosphere and outstanding service.
