Thank you for your feedback Phylyse! We are delighted to hear of your all-round positive experience with our team, and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day. Kind Regards, Peter Rowland Team
A really lovely venue, and it was great that we were able to have the ceremony and reception at the same place!
National Trust were quite strict about the time frames for the ceremony booking, but the fees were not too expensive, and generally the wedding ceremony was coordinated well. Lucy was also very friendly and helpful!
However we would have preferred a bit more assistance with liaising between National Trust and Peter Rowland, given that they are the exclusive caterer at Rippon Lea.
Thank you very much for your feedback! The Peter Rowland team were delighted to host your wedding reception in our Ballroom. I am delighted to hear that the National Trust did an amazing job in facilitating your ceremony, and appreciate your feedback regarding the liasing between National Trust and our team. Please rest assured we have addressed this with the team to ensure that we improve on this. Kind Regards Peter Rowland Team
Beautiful location and such a beautiful set up. It was simple but elegant with beautiful gardens. The mansion at night time was stunning and offered perfect photo opportunities. Highly recommend.
Thank you Jade for your kind review. Our location is definitely remarkable! We are delighted to hear that you managed to capture stunning evening shots. Kind Regards, Peter Rowland Team
Location was very nice, very quaint and their service on the day was absolutely 5 stars!
Ersin, thank you for your 5-star review! We are delighted that you chose Peter Rowland to be a part of your special day and are pleased to hear of your positive experience. Kind Regards, Peter Rowland Team
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.
Simon, thank you for your amazing review! We are definitely fortunate to be located in such a well-maintained Estate yet still in close proximity to the heart of Melbourne! We hope that you visit again soon. Kind Regards, Peter Rowland Team

Cheryl, thank you for your review! We are delighted that you chose Peter Rowland to host your special day and that we were able to be accommodating on the day. Kind Regards, Peter Rowland Team
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!

Most stunning venue in Melbourne! Beautiful setup for an intimate ceremony by the pool area in winter and stunning deco decor to complete a truly magical night. Wonderful setup having the bridal table in the centre of the room to ensure everyone had optimal view at all times!

We were very pleased with the staff at Peter Rowland (Rippon Lea Estate Grand Ballroom) on our wedding day and in the lead up. The venue is low fuss, as it already has so much charm and atmosphere. We basically only needed to have flowers delivered. The pool terrace was great to have on the night. The venue looked beautiful and worked perfectly, The staff were so helpful throughout the night and the food was lovely. We would recommend Peter Rowland at Rippon Lea to anyone.
Gen, thank you so much for your amazing feedback! You are definitely right in saying that the space has a great atmosphere. We are delighted to hear of your positive experience with the Peter Rowland team, thank you for choosing us to host your special day. Kind Regards, Peter Rowland Team
An absolutely exquisite house and gardens that was the perfect setting for our wedding. Rippon Lea offers easy elegance and sophistication in an environment that still allows your guests to feel relaxed. Superbly managed by the National Trust and Peter Rowland Catering, it was a joy to be married here.
Hi Genevieve! Thank you for your lovely review, we are definitely very lucky to be situated in these gorgeous surroundings. Looking forward to hosting you at the Estate again soon. Kind Regards, Peter Rowland Team
Rippon Lea is simply a lovely place to hold a wedding. There are many different sites within the grounds to choose, and they all are lovely and a bit different from each other. We loved the scenery and the gardens are second to none.
Hi Matt, thank you for your feedback! We are glad to hear that you love the scenery and that the estate has lots of variety to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind Regards, Peter Rowland Team
The venue is stunning, I fell in love with it. It poured rain on our day and it was even more beautiful in the rain. It is difficult if you want your ceremony and reception there as they are run by two separate companies, communication between them isn't great.
Hi Alicia, thank you for your kind feedback! We are overwhelmed to hear that you had an amazing wedding day in the most appropriate setting. We appreciate your feedback on communication - please note that this has been acknowledged and taken on board for future couples who decide to host both their ceremony & reception at the estate! Kind Regards, Peter Rowland Team
This would have to be one of the most beautiful places to hold a garden wedding ceremony and reception. We were so lucky to have been able to hold our wedding at Rippon Lea. We had our ceremony near the lake called Duck exit and the backdrop was spectacular and there are so many beautiful spots to take photos there. The Rippon Lea Ballroom was beautiful as there is not much to need to do regards to decorating. We highly recommend Rippon Lea. I would also like to thank Tamara Graham for everything she did she made everything so easy and the day went so smoothly we just had an amazing day....thank you again for everything Tamara.
Thank you for your review Carmelina! We are delighted to hear of your amazing experience with the Peter Rowland team and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day. We look forward to welcoming you back to the estate some time soon! Kind Regards, Peter Rowland Team
What can i say about such a beautiful place apart from it was a fantastic setting for our special day to be held. The wedding coordinator did such a lovely job at making the day run smoothly and helped us to relax and make the day all about us.
Thank you for your amazing feedback Alex! We are delighted to hear of your positive experience with the our team. Kind Regards, Peter Rowland Team
Fabulous place to have our wedding. Loved the gardens by the lake as a ceremony space, beautiful place for photos as well. Great to have the entire wedding (ceremony and reception) in one venue and avoid waiting around time. Easy to get to, we got so many compliments on the garden.
Hi Amanda, thank you for your awesome review! We are delighted that you found our venue most convenient for your wedding day as we hosted both your ceremony & reception in the one location. We look forward to seeing you around again soon Kind Regards, Peter Rowland Team
Absolutely breathtaking venue and surrounding gardens. My wedding was everything I had dreamt my wedding would be. The venue set the tone for my glamorous wedding. Peter Rowland catering was perfect and food was a hit. The planner at for Peter Rowland/Rippon Lea was pleasant to deal with and very efficient. Although having to deal with National Trust for the ceremony in the garden was a real effort with unclear and sometimes non existent communication. Overall, Rippon Lea was a magnificent venue for my wedding.
