2020 NEW YEAR SALE — Until the end of February 2020 we are offering 2020 prices for all weddings booked for 2021.. Not only does this offer some significant savings, but you’ll also get first dibs on those peak dates through October and November. Site visits available from January 6th.

Set on 68 acres of rolling hills, golf fairways, beautiful gardens and a private lake, Lawson Lodge is surrounded by national park and stunning bushland, with amazing panoramic views of Mount Macedon. So many beautiful locations for your wedding.

The stunning 9 bedroom Canadian mountain lodge sleeps up to 20 guests, and features a sunlit bridal suite overlooking the garden. The fully appointed country house is both luxurious and homely and will be your home away from home for you, and your favourite people for the entire wedding weekend.

The two beautifully appointed executive rooms boast an amazing view over the lake and sleep an additional 4 guests. During the warmer months (September through to May) we also have 10 glamping tents available for bookings. These Moroccan style tents feature queen sized beds and luxurious hotel linen and offer a unique experience for your guests.

The accommodation is complemented by a range of facilities that is unrivalled for a property this size, all included in the accommodation rate. We have our own private 9-hole golf course, movie cinema, 8 seater spa, sports bar, fishing lake, tennis court, basketball, petanqu�, carpet bowls and billiards – all unlimited use for you and your guests. We also offer a range of services including pre-wedding beauty treatments. The lake hut is the perfect place to sneak away for a relaxing massage or facial before the big day.

Our stunning all-weather alfresco function area with views across the lake and rolling hills can accommodate most functions, from 20 to 200 people. The room can be open to enjoy the great outdoors, or in bad weather can be closed at the click of a button so your guests are comfortable but you still have the stunning views!

If you’ve been searching for a stunning holiday house that lets you host a wedding and do things your way, Lawson Lodge could be the venue for you. We are a DIY wedding venue, which means you book the property, and you have the flexibility to design the wedding that best suits your needs. You are essentially hiring a space, our beautiful blank canvas with amazing views to decorate into your perfect wedding venue. You can supply your own drinks and choose your own catering supplier giving you complete control over all aspects of your day.

Booking Lawson Lodge Country Estate for your wedding or special occasion gives you exclusive use of the entire property and all the facilities for the duration of your stay. Why book a hotel room, when you can have an entire 68 acre country estate all to yourselves.

We can comfortably fit up to 120 seated, and up to 200 for a cocktail function.

Do you have a wet weather back up?

Yes, in case of wet weather ceremonies can take place in our conference room or in the undercover alfresco. Our alfresco area has clear blinds which can be used in all weather.

The lodge and executive rooms sleep up to 24 guests. We also have 10 glamping tents catering for another 20 guests, plus several rollaway beds suitable for children. The maximum permitted overnight is 50 guests.

Can our pet be at our wedding?

If you wish to involve a pet such as a dog in your ceremony, we can allow them on site and on a lead for the duration of the ceremony, however you will need to make arrangements for them to be taken off site straight after this.

Are their good photo locations on site?

There are many lovely photo opportunities around the property. Photographers love working at Lawson Lodge. The fishing hut and lake, the woodland pine trees, the rose garden and the front track are popular locations. Photographers generally don’t need to leave the property to capture stunning shots.

Could not have asked for a more perfect spot to get married. Turn your wedding into a 2/3 day special weekend at Lawson Lodge. Spectacular views, gardens, and views. Very friendly staff and plenty of room for family and friends to stay. Not to mention a very challenging 9 hole golf course. A+++++
