Planning a Yarra Valley Wedding?

Wedding Accommodation for the Bride and Groom

Are you getting married in the beautiful Yarra Valley?

Are you looking for the perfect place to get ready for your big day?

Our two houses, one for the bride, one for the groom, are both in Healesville, and lend themselves to getting ready for your wedding as they are beautifully light and spacious.

Magnolia House

For the bride

Nestled behind a private picket fence at the east end of Healesville, Magnolia House is the perfect location for brides to ready themselves for their big day.

The moments before your wedding are a time to be treasured – so seek out a suitably unique place to prepare with your bridesmaids for your wedding day. With two large bedrooms, each with their own ensuite, and a large living area that lets in lots of natural light, Magnolia House has the perfect spaces for make-up artists and hairdressers to work their magic.

Being over 100 years old, this beautiful Grand Dame of Healesville has elegant character and style which make a wonderful backdrop for your candid ‘getting ready’ photographs.

Fig Tree House

For the groom

While the ladies are getting ready at Magnolia House, the gents can stay at the equally fabulous Fig Tree House – perfect for the Groom and his groomsmen to chill out.

Fig Tree House is ideal for the Groom and his wing men to ready themselves for his momentous day. It’s close to shops for those last minute essentials when someone has forgotten/lost/broken something, plus it’s large enough for everyone to get ready comfortably, whilst still being close by to help steady nerves, tie that bow tie and straighten a corsage on each other’s lapels.

Fig Tree House has all the style and grace of a period property, yet was built with all the modern conveniences a man could need, as he prepares for the best day of his life, surrounded by friends.

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”.
