An absolutely stunning venue, we had both the ceremony and reception at Ballarat Lodge. The backdrops for the photos were amazing and the function room was perfect. The food was delicious and very generous serving sizes. The staff were extremely helpful throughout the whole process and on the night.

Mandy was a great Wedding Coordinator - fantastic venue for a 'non' hotel look more of a Homested feel which was perfect! Our reception room was amazing! Food great, and service! We were so happy we decided on the Ballarat Lodge - the gardens and pond are amazing! Best venue in Ballarat!

The staff were amazing from the start. I was initially told my date was booked, but they emailed me back a couple of weeks later letting me know they had a cancellation. They were able to provide me a quote that suited my budget that still had all the inclusions I wanted. They were easy to communicate with and always happy for me to pop in to have a look at things or to discuss things in person. The day ran very smoothly, they were able to find a solution when they noticed the DJ I had booked hadn't shown up, they made it work for our reception entrance song and then had my phone linked to their sound system until he showed up (after they called them and got that sorted). The food was amazing! We did struggle with the drinks, as the was a limited selection (for us).

Do we need wedding insurance or is that included in the venue?

Mercure Ballarat

Hi Riley,

No you do not need wedding insurance as the hotel has it own insurance.
