The stained-glass windows, hand-crafted timber pews and sweeping views across the lake, make Ballara Receptions Chapel truly one of a kind.
Imagine walking down the aisle with everything is taken care of – the sound system playing your special song and your own bridal host looking after your every need.
The Ballara Receptions Chapel encompasses romance, elegance and year-round comfort so your guests can relax as they witness your wedding vows.
Within Ballara Receptions, select from five amazing locations in our manicured gardens for your ceremony.
Imagine standing in our lakeside gazebo or jetty, surrounded by the most important family & friends in your life when you say “I Do”.
Or, maybe you would prefer our private courtyard for a more intimate setting – the choice is yours.
Have the peace of mind knowing the gorgeous Chapel is always available as a backup should Melbourne’s temperamental weather prevail!
With so many locations on-site, there is no need for you to leave Ballara to capture all those magical moments.
Wander around the lake to discover our cascading waterfall, giant swing, lakeside jetty, and rustic ‘LOVE’ letters, to name a few.
Having everything here removes the hassle, stress and cost of going to additional locations.
Ballara Receptions is one of the few Melbourne Wedding Venues that can provide this compete experience.
Just because the sun goes down, it does not mean your photography should stop!
The Ballara Receptions gardens are full of thousands of fairy lights and mood lighting so that your photo album will have gorgeous shots by day and night.
Steal a moment away in the fairy-lit courtyard, dance under the festoon lights on the deck or toast each other in the romantic gazebo.
