Ever imagined the perfect country wedding? The Stones of the Yarra Valley is recognised as one of Victoria’s top venues for couples looking for that authentic barnyard experience. This venue, which initially functioned as a 19th century farmstead, offers comfortable accommodation and sumptuous cuisine in true rustic style. Let’s take a closer look at this unique and picturesque location.
The Stones of the Yarra Valley is nestled in the undulating hills of its namesake. Here, you can celebrate your wedding with breath-taking panoramic views of the mist-laden Great Divide. It’s a dramatic backdrop that has served countless exquisite wedding photographs. The myriad pathways and gardens of the venue lend an air of rural enchantment to the farmstead, while its famous white-washed chapel looms like an ode to the past from its bright green, rambling lawns.
On closer inspection, the non-denominational chapel is a perfect example of 19th century rural Victoriana. The ceilings are lofty, adorned with stained-glass windows. The pews are authentically pastoral and made out of timber. The whole chapel can accommodate 150 witnesses.
You can choose to hold your reception in one of two main venues: The Barn or The Stables. The Barn is a large location that has retained its weather-beaten, idyllic charm. It seats 180 people and is popular for large wedding parties. The Stables, on the other hand, works for smaller, more intimate receptions, seating 40-62 guests. Wrought iron finishings, century-old brickwork and rough-hewn wood all give The Stables an air of vintage countryside charisma.
The food at both venues has been praised for being seasonal, experimental and delicious. Their menus vary from month to month, but most plates are designed around elegant Mediterranean and European cuisines. If The Stones of the Yarra Valley sounds like your dream countryside wedding location, pay them a visit at 14 St Huberts Road, Coldstream.
