Destination wedding: 5 Dreamy wedding styles - Geelong and The Bellarine

Are you a potential relaxed boho bride or a Bridezilla /Groomzilla obsessed with Pinterest?

Yes there is such a thing as a Groomzilla.

We know that planning a wedding can be one of the biggest events of your life. There are so many things to consider; who to invite, what to give as bonbonniere, sit down or cocktail, who’s paying for the wedding and so on.....

We also know that each bride or groom wants a unique experience and a location to impress. Geelong and the Bellarine provides the perfect opportunity to create a destination wedding without needing to pay for air fares or see the doctor for a malaria jab.

Holding your special day in our region provides couples with a fabulous range of wedding styles such as a coastal experience, winery wedding, rustic barns, or an elegant soiree. 

Start your wedding journey with this inspiration..

1. Vintage vavavoom

Vintage came back in vogue when Leonardo starred in the Great Gatsby movie and has taken off since. No other venue in the region says Vintage better than the Vue Grand.

Think Pimms cocktails, a grand staircase entrance and some tunes on the grand piano.

For a destination wedding it also ticks all the boxes with accommodation, ceremony space and grand dining room reception venue all in the one location. Add the gorgeous destination of Queenscliff and you are set for a celebration of glitz and glamour.

There's something about a beach wedding that many love birds are attracted to, and our region can offer big time in this department.

Think ceremony on the beach, views of the water and the fresh sea breeze over pre dinner cocktails. That’s exactly what you’ll find in Barwon heads at the venue, At The Heads. 

Did we say views yet!! You couldn’t be any closer to the water, in fact you are almost in the water at this dreamy venue.

Heard of the Moorabool Valley yet? Well take a moment to breathe in the beauty of Clyde Park winery. Yep a winery wedding, sounds good already doesn’t it?

Rustic elegance is what they call it and this venues deliver in that. It’s romantic, there is wine and also a jaw dropping views of the hills for your ceremony. They also run a side business called Clyde Park Pop up Party Catering, so you may be able to consider them off-site as well.
