Situated at the foothills of the Macedon Ranges & steeped in history, The Epicurean Emu Bottom is a heritage property set on 62 acres playing host to unique & memorable weddings...


First established in 1836, Emu Bottom is the oldest homestead in Victoria and offers a unique, heritage setting for rustic, country weddings all the while being just outside of Melbourne. Located in the centre of 62 acres of working farmlands & native Australian greenery, this iconic property is a popular choice amongst couples planning a relaxed, regional wedding. 

Managed by The Epicurean Group, who are famed for Italian ‘cucina’ style cuisine – fresh, regional, seasonal and delicious produce prepared with rustic and authentic flair. Our menus marry modern Australian inspirations with bountiful Mediterranean influences. Our menu’s are sophisticated yet relaxed, designed with colourful generous share platters that get guests mingling and connecting with each other and the food.

The Epicurean Emu Bottom offers two wedding venues; The Homestead with sprawling lawns & manicured gardens suitable also for Alfresco and Marquee style weddings, as well as The Woolshed built in 1854 from rough hewn red gum slabs and features exposed timbers beams and a large stone fireplace for the cooler months.

Perfection. Everything ran so smoothly. The Epicurean team liased with all our vendors, guided my bridal party and myself and hosted a perfect day for us. The food was incredible and came out so well timed! I am so grateful for the attention to small details - making sure we were fed in between photo taking; having fireplaces ablaze in the woolshed, timing when I needed to walk down the aisle, having umbrellas ready for the rain ahead. I did not need to think of a single thing- could just enjoy my day with my husband. Gorgeous venue. You don't need to go anywhere else for photos. Moved seamlessly from ceremony in the garden to pre dinner drinks in the miner's cottage to reception in the woolshed. Flawless.

Fantastic venue. Such an easy flow between seating, dance floor and outdoor area. We had our ceremony and reception at Emu Bottom Homestead. We had 80 in the Homestead for the reception on two long tables. Kate and Alex were great and the organizing process was very easy. The food was delicious and there was so much of it.

Emu Bottom was the perfect venue for our wedding. David, the manager was wonderful to deal with and he and the staff went above and beyond on the day to make it absolutely perfect. The food, wine and atmosphere were amazing. It was raining on our wedding day so we had the ceremony in the slab hut which was so beautiful and intimate. The reception in the Homestead was absolutely perfect as well. We wouldn't change a thing!

We got married in the old wool shed for a relaxed and rustic feel and that's exactly what we got on the day. The staff are very chill and accomodating to enquiries and requests. The venue was cozy and the new fairy light really make the space. All the food was very delicious as well. We got many complements from our guests. Very happy with how our day turned out.

The perfect wedding venue! Our event coordinator, Louise was also perfect and you could tell she knew what she was doing. We had the best feedback from the guests on the venue and we couldn’t ask for anything more!
