OVERVIEW

Provenance is the most unique and historic wedding venue in Geelong. We love making life easy for our couples!  We have a stunning Barrel Hall for receptions, a variety of onsite ceremony locations, award-winning food and wine, and numerous photography locations close by on the estate. We pride ourselves on delivering personalised service, with great attention to detail.

The heritage-listed Paper Mill where Provenance calls home, is nestled in a cliff with picturesque views over Buckley Falls on the Barwon River.  We are the closest winery to Geelong, an easy 10 minutes’ drive from Geelong’s CBD.  Conveniently located just off the Geelong bypass and 50-minute day trip from Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road.

 

Our menu features delicious, locally sourced produce designed to impress your guests and leave them completely satisfied. Our talented kitchen team are well known for the quality of their cuisine, offering a large seasonal menu and catering for all dietary requirements with individual meals.  As part of our wedding planning service, we invite couples to enjoy a complimentary lunch in the restaurant to experience the quality and taste of our food. 

 

Packages include cocktail, alternate drop, and a popular share-style menu.  Our Head Chef and his dedicated team are passionate about delivering quality and exceptional, fresh, modern-Australia cuisine which has been receiving rave reviews.

We offer a variety of indoor or outdoor ceremony options, including a pretty outdoor alfresco area, rustic industrial winery and several options within our grand Barrel Hall.  Provenance is also perfect for winter weddings with a gorgeous fireplace, overhead heating and plenty of award-winning wine to keep guests toasty!  

 

We provide couples with a private Bridal Retreat room, allowing them to take a moment, relax and enjoy a champagne before the reception begins.

 

In terms of styling, we are fortunate to have such a gorgeous space, full of character and textures with many couples not needing a lot of styling beyond florals.  The rustic, whitewashed, bluestone walls and the grandeur of the sweeping, vaulted ceilings is breathtaking. Beautiful natural light floods in from our skylights and numerous windows facing the Barwon River. The polished concrete flooring and warm timber tones of the tabletops and black Bentwood chairs also provide a natural palette to easily create a perfect wedding.

 

Whether it be crisp, white linen or natural timber tabletops, fairy lights that adorn the origninal crossbars of the ceiling or barrels, full of wine, wrapping two sides of the room, our friendly event team will create a customised floorplan. We hold a detailed planning meeting 6 weeks ahead of the wedding to run over all the fine details for the special day.

If COVID-19 restrictions force you to defer your event, Provenance Wines will endeavour to find you a suitable, alternative date to move your booking to.

February 2022

Fantastic! Our wedding was in Feb 2022 and they honestly were so easy to work with! They were flexible through the multiple reschedules, changes to the run sheets and all our questions. All of our guests had a fabulous time and we have not stopped receiving comments about the food, the lamb in particular. 3 weeks later and people are still talking about it! Candice at Provenance made everything so easy and stress-free for us. Would highly recommend!

May 2021

Provenance is a beautiful venue with wine barrels lining the rustic walls, making for an epic backdrop for photos. I could not rate this venue higher, they were super responsive and flexible to our needs. All night we had guests commenting on how exceptional the food was! A big thank you Kristie the events coordinator for making sure everything ran smoothly on the night.

April 2020

Its a great venue, great Wine selection and good space. The floor space was spacious to be able to have a sit down or stand up wedding. It had great photography locations which was amazing, and you could have it any time of the year due to having an inside space. Thank you to the coordinator they were really easy to deal with. We had an amazing day!

We cannot thank all the staff at Provenance enough for making our day so so special. Everything from the very beginning of planning was done with ease and to no trouble to the team. We were able to plan our dream wedding without any stress, they were able to accomodate every request that we had and execute it to perfection. The whole staffing team was absolutely incredible and we love that we have somewhere special to go back to on anniversary's.
