Marybrooke is a breathtaking tudor style wedding venue that can turn your special day into a truly memorable experience.

Marybrooke is nestled on the edge of the majestic Sherbrooke Forest in the Dandenong Ranges.  The magnificent National Trust listed reception centre and guest house is the perfect one-stop destination for your wedding ceremony & reception.

Built in 1940, Marybrooke began as the grandest guesthouse in a chain of six guesthouses all using the pre-fix of "Mary".  Over recent years Marybrooke has undergone extensive renovations to restore and reinstate the building to reflect it's original charm and elegance.

For ceremonies, we have a picturesque outdoor garden lawn area with gazebo and up to 110 chairs.  Alternatively, our indoor ceremony area has beautiful garden outlooks and is always available as a wet weather fall back. 

Over eight acres of gardens provides ample photo opportunities, but you can also use our heritage drawing room for indoor shots.

With spectacular garden views, our reception room with a large portable dance floor can perfectly reflect your elegant style.  Pre-dinner drinks and canapes can be provided in the Wine Garden with the Manor providing a magnificent backdrop, or in the indoor bar as a fall back.

We offer a flexible range of all-inclusive ceremony & reception packages tailored to your individual needs.  From traditional sit down dining to shared platter dining, cocktail receptions and high tea garden parties.  We also have a Boutique Package available to couples who want to have their wedding on a Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday or on any available day within three months of booking.  Menu tastings can also be arranged.  We also have the Marybrooke app designed specifically for our couples to communicate and store all their important documents.

With 20 recently refurbished four-star accommodation suites and a separate four bedroom cottage able to sleep over 60 guests in total, we can also cater for your guests' accommodation needs.  Breakfast is included in all our room rates.

You can stay at the Manor the night before and spend the day in our bridal lounge getting ready while your partner prepares at the nearby Cottage and enjoys a late check out.  You can also enjoy breakfast with your guests the next morning after spending the night in our complimentary bridal suite.

And remember - we only host one wedding per day.


We (Deborah and Andrew Judkins) have worked in hospitality for a vast majority of our careers, stretching over 20 years. With a background in various management roles and a passion for weddings, we have great attention to detail. We love what we do and are very proud of the 18 years that we have owned our wedding reception venues.

February 2024

We are so happy that we chose to have our wedding at Marybrooke Manor. From the ease of organising everything prior, through to the beautiful aesthetic in the day, and the attentive, genuine caring service in between, everything was perfect. Marybrooke make the organisation of the day a breeze, with the simple inclusions/extras format for just about anything you could think to have on your day, the app for communication with the team, and the highly experienced team they have on hand to assist. The planning of our day was so simple that we were constantly being asked by friends and family how our wedding plans were going and if we were stressed yet, and our answer was always, we are sorted and no stress at all. The venue was exactly like we planned on the day, everything was clean, well presented and beautiful, it was a stifling hot day, but the staff had turned on all air conditioning to ensure all rooms were very comfortable. There was also heaps of cold bottled water available for us and our guests to be comfortable at the ceremony. Even though it was 37 degrees, the sunken garden were we got married was very comfortable. Our coordinator Bek was extremely competent at her job, everything was planned prior, confirmed with us and then orchestrated without a hitch. She ensured everything just happened without us having to think about it, but was there for us when we needed anything. Andrew was also great to have around during the morning of preparation, and made us feel very special and supported, this helped us feel relaxed about how the actual wedding was going to go. The bar and wait staff were great on the day, providing fast, friendly service. The bar staff were very relatable, having nice brief conversations with us and guests when ordering. This helped create a relaxed casual evening. The food was sensational! We expected it to be excellent, because we have attended an event at Marybrooke prior, but we were actually blown away by how good the food was. Everything we were served, even the vegies was cooked to perfection and was delicious. There was also so much of it. None of our guests were hungry, they got to eat what they wanted and there was enough food for them to have plenty and a little of everything.

November 2023

Deborah & Andrew lead a wonderful team who went above and beyond to make our special day a success. We are very thankful to have had them assist us every step of the way in planning the wedding, making sure that we had considered all elements, and having the app made it easy to stay in touch and organised throughout the process. Also loved having Deborah as our celebrant and Andrew as our MC as they were very accommodating to our requests and any last minute changes changes. Our guests loved the venue, food, and overall atmosphere. Would certainly recommend!

August 2023

Marybrooke Manor is absolutely beautiful in all seasons, even in the rain. Deborah saved us in many situations including a missing tie for my robe and a bridesmaids dress strap breaking right before the ceremony Service provided was amazing and we have had great feedback from our guests too. We loved the food, it was both delicious and filling. They answered every question we had and alleviated any and all of our stress leading up to our day. Deborah, Andrew and the team did an absolutely fantastic job of ensuring not only did the day run smoothly but also made lots of suggestions

Everything was so easy to organise and the wedding ran without a hitch on the day. Everyone said it was beautiful and commented on how well organised everything was. Andrew also went out of his way to make sure we had everything we wanted in the bridal lounge while we were getting ready.

Are wedding venues only 18+ or can minors attend the reception where alcohol is being served?

Marybrooke Manor

Under 18 can attend wedding venues, however they are not allowed to consume alcohol (regardless of whether their parents give their permission).  Children & teens are most welcome at most wedding venues, however you would need to check with your actual venue if they have their own rules in place.

Do most venues offer menu tastings?

What's the typical setup for a menu tasting for a wedding venue?

Marybrooke Manor

We host tastings every 2nd Thursday which cost just $80 for three course meal plus house wine, beer, sparkling. soft drink.  You're welcome to bring as many people as you like to sample the food.

Victorian venues that allow BYO catering/food trucks?

We are recently engaged and are looking for a small venue to host a food truck wedding for about 70-100 people?

Marybrooke Manor

We allow venue hire which allows couples to bring in a registered caterer to provide food and or beverages.  Our venue is not really suited to food truck style event.
