Nestled in the heart of the picturesque Dandenong Ranges, Tatra Receptions is one of Victoria’s most renowned garden wedding venues. With a rich history dating back to the late 1800s, the property has been beautifully preserved, retaining its old-world charm and forest beauty. Celebrate with your loved ones in the privacy and serenity afforded by over 10 acres of established gardens.

Make your wedding an unforgettable weekend getaway with complimentary accommodation for the wedding couple, as well as 28 onsite accommodation suites available, each sleeping between two and eight guests. Despite being a mere hour away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne CBD, you’ll find Tatra Receptions to be a peaceful forest escape with spectacular views of the Dandenong Ranges. 

Choose from three equally idyllic ceremony locations: the rustic-chic timber chapel, garden gazebo, or wrought iron cupola framed by lush lawns and forest greenery. After exploring the grounds and discovering countless incredible photo opportunities, celebrate in Tatra Receptions’ spacious, chandelier-lit ballroom.  

With your personal wedding coordinator guiding your vendors, and leading Tatra Receptions’ skilled waitstaff, there is little left for you to do except revel in the excitement of your wedding day. Your guests will delight in the gourmet three-course meal prepared with the personalisation options of your choosing, plus the five-hour premium beverage featuring Yarra Valley wines. 


“The grounds are stunning! Great facilities, comfy accommodation, delicious food, and the staff were so friendly. Everyone really went above and beyond to accommodate the wedding party and guests. I cannot recommend Tatra Receptions highly enough.” – Aspen M.

Tatra Receptions has been nothing but amazing from start to finish. Andrew and his team were always so lovely and accommodating, nothing was really an issue for them, which was especially helpful when there is so much uncertainty with covid at the moment. It put me at ease knowing they were so confident in what they were doing. Communication has been great throughout the whole process. The food was delicious - there were lots of options to choose from! A lot of our guests complimented on how beautiful the chapel is. It is just stunning! I could not fault Tatra Receptions, it's just a beautiful place to get married!

Amazing staff & amazing venue. Tatra were incredibly helpful throughout the planning of our wedding through Covid, and came to an outcome that helped us create the most beautiful day for myself & my wife. They weer courteous, polite, helpful, responsive & a delight to work with. They put in an incredible amount of effort into the planning, presentation & delivery of our wedding day, and we couldn't be happier to have had our special day in their beautiful grounds. Thank you very much for your help Clare & Tatra Receptions.

Tatra Receptions is an absolutely stunning venue in all seasons. The staff were so friendly and informative upon meeting and didn't mind my many questions. They are so extremely organised and were so ready to help at any time. The day ran smoothly because of their team, the food was incredible and our guests really enjoyed roaming Tatra's beautiful grounds. Accommodation on-site is also great for guests who have travelled from afar too, we definitely appreciated being able to stay the night!
