Most stunning venue in Melbourne! Beautiful setup for an intimate ceremony by the pool area in winter and stunning deco decor to complete a truly magical night. Wonderful setup having the bridal table in the centre of the room to ensure everyone had optimal view at all times!

We were very pleased with the staff at Peter Rowland (Rippon Lea Estate Grand Ballroom) on our wedding day and in the lead up. The venue is low fuss, as it already has so much charm and atmosphere. We basically only needed to have flowers delivered. The pool terrace was great to have on the night. The venue looked beautiful and worked perfectly, The staff were so helpful throughout the night and the food was lovely. We would recommend Peter Rowland at Rippon Lea to anyone.

An absolutely exquisite house and gardens that was the perfect setting for our wedding. Rippon Lea offers easy elegance and sophistication in an environment that still allows your guests to feel relaxed. Superbly managed by the National Trust and Peter Rowland Catering, it was a joy to be married here.
