Mitchelton Wines

Located in the heart of the beautiful Nagambie Lakes region Mitchelton Wines has long been a romantic and elegant setting for wedding day celebrations. The regions growing reputation as a wine and food destination is attracting attention from across the country; if you’re a couple who appreciate breathtaking views paired with an exceptional dining experience, Michelton Wines could be the perfect venue for your wedding!

Many brides and grooms fall in love with the Mitchelton Estate and plan their entire day within its exquisite landscape. Serendipity Photography have had the immense pleasure of capturing a beautiful selection of weddings at this location, and we highly recommend it as a wedding venue. Ceremonies are often carried out in the distinctive tower; this light and open space combines elegant understated décor with breathtaking views across the surrounding grounds. It’s common to feel like you’re on cloud nine as you exchange your wedding vows, but how many newly weds get to literally experience this atop an enchanting observation tower?!

Receptions are held in elegant modern style at the Michelton Restaurant. The impressive interior décor of this reasonably scaled venue including the distinctive brick floor, high ceilings, grand open fireplace, fantastic bar and impressive windows create a beautiful setting for intimate wedding day festivities. The stunning panormanic views made possible by the large windows which frame the space, are the perfect backdrop for romantic and atmospheric wedding day photography (both day and night!) The warm and professional service coupled with the great quality food ensures an enjoyable and truly memorable experience for guests and newly weds alike.

Mitchelton’s exquisite array of outdoor locations make a gorgeous setting for a variety of distinct photography styles and moods. Family and large bridal party shots are well suited to the lovely river which runs through the property. Intimate portraits of the bride and groom are set off beautifully by the grand Eucalyptus trees which cast soft dappled light upon the couple. The unique cellar underneath the main building (where all the fine wine from the striking vineyards is stored!) is perfect for dramatic compositions. The aisle of arches boldly frames the couple, as subtle back lighting renders them in an elegant silhouette. The grand staircase leading down to the cellar creates an interesting visual element.

Couples also have the option of extending their special day by enjoying the charming on site accommodation. Mitchelton’s rustic Blackwood Park Country House is designed for 6 guests, making it the perfect place for night before the wedding preparations. Equipped with luxurious modern features such as master bedroom and private ensuite, decadent spa, air conditioning and 2 dining areas, the Country House is a tranquil and beautiful option for brides and grooms. Set amongst the picturesque Mitchelton vineyards, right on the banks of the Goulburn River, the Country House’s charming exterior is also a fantastic backdrop for wedding day location photographs.

    Mitchelton Wines — after a bit of searching Mitchelton Winery ticked all the boxes — Great wine, great food, stunning scenery, a house on location for the girls to get ready and a flexible, easy going function coördinator MaryLou Geddes who was very accommodating to all of our requests. We really liked that we were able to have a late finish rather than the standard 11:30 p.m.

    Being just outside of Nagambie meant that for the vast majority of our guests, the wedding was a weekend away; however the travel back to Melbourne was possible if required. The food on the night was fantastic — even better than our tastings, the steak was superb. The serving sizes were generous and the wait service excellent. We received several comments, from some fairly harsh food critics, that it was the best wedding food that they had ever had.

    We got married up the tower at Mitchelton, which, with its stunning panoramic views of the vineyard and river, was a pretty unique spot to get married. The ceremony was made extra special by writing our own vows which were kept secret form each other until the day; a delightful celebrant Carolyn Gazenvoort and beautiful music from the Zelwood string quartet.

    Andrew and I have no hesitation in recommending Mitchelton Winery with Marylou and her team for a wedding reception/ ceremony.
