OVERVIEW

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.

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

Hi Hannah & Matthew, thank you for your amazing feedback. We do love what we do and are so proud of what we offer. We love hearing back from our wonderful couples and your feedback has made our day! We wish you and Matthew a lifetime of love and happiness and look forward to seeing you for your one year anniversary!

February 2023

Our venue was absolutely amazing. I can’t fault a single thing, everything was so organised. I’m a little bit of a control freak but I barely had to lift a finger. - So many inclusions! DJ, Accomodation for bride and groom, buffet breakfast the next day, MC, Canapés! Saved us so much money - There is a minimum spend however it’s not ridiculously high like other venues where you can barely make it up

Thanks Grace & Trent, we are so pleased you had such a great time celebrating your big day with us! It was our absolute pleasure hosting your wedding and you were both so lovely to work with! We wish you lots of love & happiness for the future!

January 2023

Marybrooke went above and beyond to make our big day perfect. There's not a single thing we can say that isn't positive. The lovely staff, onsite accomodation, bridal lounge, food, reception setup, proactive communication and venue itself are all top notch, and we cannot recommend them highly enough if you're looking for a venue that does it all. The beautiful setting is just an added bonus! This is a venue who love what they do, and making couples dreams come true, all within a very reasonable price tag.

Awww...Katie & Jaxon. Thanks for the great review! You guys were such fun to work with. I had a ball writing your ceremony and performing it on the day! I learnt what a LARP is (live action role play) plus much more. Your bubble guns back down the aisle made the best photo! We look forward to seeing you back for your one year anniversary! Best wishes from the team at Marybrooke!

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!

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.
