Nestled in the heart of the picturesque Dandenong Ranges, Tatra Receptions is one of Victoria’s most renowned garden wedding venues. With a rich history dating back to the late 1800s, the property has been beautifully preserved, retaining its old-world charm and forest beauty. Celebrate with your loved ones in the privacy and serenity afforded by over 10 acres of established gardens.

Make your wedding an unforgettable weekend getaway with complimentary accommodation for the wedding couple, as well as 28 onsite accommodation suites available, each sleeping between two and eight guests. Despite being a mere hour away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne CBD, you’ll find Tatra Receptions to be a peaceful forest escape with spectacular views of the Dandenong Ranges. 

Choose from three equally idyllic ceremony locations: the rustic-chic timber chapel, garden gazebo, or wrought iron cupola framed by lush lawns and forest greenery. After exploring the grounds and discovering countless incredible photo opportunities, celebrate in Tatra Receptions’ spacious, chandelier-lit ballroom.  

With your personal wedding coordinator guiding your vendors, and leading Tatra Receptions’ skilled waitstaff, there is little left for you to do except revel in the excitement of your wedding day. Your guests will delight in the gourmet three-course meal prepared with the personalisation options of your choosing, plus the five-hour premium beverage featuring Yarra Valley wines. 


“The grounds are stunning! Great facilities, comfy accommodation, delicious food, and the staff were so friendly. Everyone really went above and beyond to accommodate the wedding party and guests. I cannot recommend Tatra Receptions highly enough.” – Aspen M.

Absolutely sunning and brilliant venue!! Lived every second of the process from start to finish.

4 Feb 2019

Beautiful wedding location. We picked it because they have such stunning inside and outside options for the ceremony, that we knew we wouldn't be disappointed if the weather forced us inside on the day. Our wedding co-ordinator Hayley was so attentive, making sure we actually took a moment to take in the day and kept us calm throughout. Very professional and flexible from the first visit to the day itself.

Most beautiful setting. Gorgeous gardens and chapel so no matter what you cant lose. Food is amazing and the staff are very experienced in what they do. They know how to do everything so professionally and sort out the most awkward situations. Cant fault them. Everyone loved everything on the night!

Tatra was very understanding with date changes due to covid postponements. Food was good. Communication could have been improved

10 Apr 2022

Tatra is a beautiful venue and the staff made dealing with covid delays easy and stress free. They also made sure our day ran seamlessly. The photo booth we hired through tatra was also great!

12 Mar 2022

Tatra provided a beautiful backdrop for our ceremony and wedding photos. The team were very organised in the planning process and flexible when we had to postpone due to Covid. All the guests were very impressed with the venue and the on site accommodation was also very convenient.

Tatra Receptions were amazing to deal with through out the whole process. Their amazing gardens and reception room made for a perfect wedding all in the one location. We really couldn't have been happier with the service we recieved from Tatra and they were always there if we had any inquiries.

Tatra Receptions has been nothing but amazing from start to finish. Andrew and his team were always so lovely and accommodating, nothing was really an issue for them, which was especially helpful when there is so much uncertainty with covid at the moment. It put me at ease knowing they were so confident in what they were doing. Communication has been great throughout the whole process. The food was delicious - there were lots of options to choose from! A lot of our guests complimented on how beautiful the chapel is. It is just stunning! I could not fault Tatra Receptions, it's just a beautiful place to get married!

15 May 2021

Everything we could ask for under one roof. Polite and efficient staff, extremely accommodating under covid circumstances. Day ran like clockwork, and food was delicious.

1 May 2021

Tatra Receptions was such a wonderful place to get married, such a beautiful location (garden in a forest) and incredible staff. I would find excuses to call up because the staff were so nice to talk to, and they made us feel special leading up to and on the day. The food was incredible, and the honeymoon suite (included to all wedding couples as a bonus) was so nice!

30 Apr 2021

Amazing staff & amazing venue. Tatra were incredibly helpful throughout the planning of our wedding through Covid, and came to an outcome that helped us create the most beautiful day for myself & my wife. They weer courteous, polite, helpful, responsive & a delight to work with. They put in an incredible amount of effort into the planning, presentation & delivery of our wedding day, and we couldn't be happier to have had our special day in their beautiful grounds. Thank you very much for your help Clare & Tatra Receptions.

26 Mar 2021

Tatra's team was absolutely phenomenal throughout the whole process. I would have sent over 100 emails across the year of organising our wedding, and no question was too hard for them to answer. They always responded immediately and executed everything we wanted on the day. They venue was stunning, food is impeccable and its as everything we imagined. Thank you so much!!

12 Feb 2021

Tatra provided a great venue and AMAZING food. We loved that we had the opportunity to taste test with other couples. It was also really helpful that they let you have a rehearsal before the wedding. The grounds are beautiful as is the dining room. The only thing I would say is having multiple people coordinate one wedding is problematic as it was difficult to get everyone on the same page. Overall a great experience.

8 Jan 2021

Absolutely the best venue. I could not have imagined anything better than Tatra and the beautiful people that helped us there. Absolutely a stunning venue with so much space and amazing photos opps!

14 Nov 2020

Tatra also have been amazing through this crazy year we have had. Helping us to make one of the most special moments in our lives how we imagined it and being flexible in doing so.
