The perfect garden party venue on a lovely sunny day. We were amazed to find such a quiet and tranquil venue conveniently located near Melbourne's heart. With multiple places to explore and get lost this really is the perfect venue for couples who love being outdoors.

A stunning venue. The garden is a beautiful location for photos. Cocktails on the lawn and old fashioned lawn games were a hit with our guests. Great dance floor too!

Our experience with Rippon lea was amazing. The wedding co coordinator was fantastic. The gardens were beautiful and the weather helped our day be even more amazing because everything was just perfect. We could not have picked a better venue to have our ceremony.
