Photo Opportunities Galore!
Both houses have great opportunities for photos. The magnolia trees framing the front entry and verandah at Magnolia House is the perfect spot to showcase your lovely wedding attire and floral bouquets. There is a majestic oak tree that provides a dramatic backdrop in all seasons. Some of our brides have hung and photographed their wedding dresses in front of the original stained glass windows in the bedrooms, and had beautiful shots of their wedding shoes and floral bouquets taken against the floorboards.
The Yarra Valley with its backdrop of the mountains of the Great Dividing Range lends itself to wedding photos. Maroondah Dam, just a few minutes up the road, has numerous spots to snap the perfect picture: the Rose Steps, lush forest greenery, waterfalls, in front of or on top of the dam wall, the ideas are endless. The pastures along Maroondah Highway are also favourites with local photographers with the luscious green grass contrasting against the vines or picturesque views of the mountains in the background. And the sunsets…..don’t get me started about sunsets!
And after the wedding…
We also offer a ‘mid-stay service’, so after you set off for your wedding we refresh the house for you, before you return, ready for your special wedding night. The perfect place to stay after you say “I do”.
Getting it all organised.
Please contact us directly if you require further information about staying at one or both of our houses before your wedding. We’re happy to help with suggestions and recommendations, so give us a call for some local insider knowledge to help your special day run smoothly.
