This unique Geelong Wedding Venue sits surrounded by gum trees and boasts panoramic views of the lake and its abundant birdlife just across our split level decks. We specialise in intimate, beautiful, fun filled receptions with the emphasis on individuality – we love our Brides and Grooms to bring their own personal touches to their celebration, embracing the Lakehouse in so many unique ways.  From the first time we meet you we are on hand to help with each step of planning your wedding reception to ensure that the preparations are as fun and effortless as they should be, and that they are as simple, or as flamboyant as you wish them to be.

A privately owned venue, the Deakin Lakehouse has built its reputation based on 15 years of warm, capable, attentive service, excellent and plentiful food, a simply gorgeous and adaptable setting, flexible options, & a genuine love of what we do.

Couples also have the option of having their service in the historic Deakin Chapel that sits adjacent to the Lakehouse restaurant venue, or be married in the lakeside grounds with the sandstone Chapel as a charming backdrop for the ceremony and photos. Your marriage service, photos and wedding celebration all at the one location if desired - so simple.

Please feel free to call Simone or Lisa if you would like to find out more,or arrange a time to come and see the Lakehouse (at the rear of the Deakin Waurn Ponds Campus) and have a chat.

Simone and all of the staff at the Lakehouse enabled us to have the most magical day. They helped us decorate and also helped with food choices. They were so amazing they even helped us pack up! Thank you for allowing us to get married and celebrate with you
