Summerfields Estate and Country House 6 +

OVERVIEW

Summerfields is an American style country mansion set amongst picturesque semi-formal gardens, a 2000-tree olive grove, an ornamental lake and natural bushland.

With Cape Cod style architecture reminiscent of the grand summer homes on the East Coast of America, Summerfields is Mornington Peninsula's best kept secret. Our striking wedding reception space is light, bright and can be tailored to suit your personal style - from a formal sit down wedding to a more relaxed cocktail party.

  • Devoted, friendly team
  • Personalised service & cuisine
  • Beautiful gardens & grounds
  • Multiple ceremony & reception locations
  • Outdoor marquee option
  • Luxurious on-site accommodation


Whilst the grounds of Summerfields are indeed breathtaking, it is the first-class service & attention to detail of our staff that has secured our reputation on the Mornington Peninsula for over a decade. With a particular focus on great food, the ingredients used by our experienced Chefs are locally sourced to ensure freshness, with many of the herbs grown in Summerfields’ own garden.

Our gorgeous guest house, located on the property, contains six individually designed suites providing luxury accommodation for couples, their friends and family. The perfect setting to relive all the magic of your special day over a home cooked breakfast with family & friends the following morning!

Yes certainly, you may place a sign at the front gate or anywhere you think is suitable for your wedding setup. You may also put wooden signage on the grass anywhere in front of the Main House.

With our ceremony hire, you have one hour for your ceremony. With most ceremonies take about 20 - 30 minutes, you would have the remainder ceremony time for photography, as well as the duration of your pre-dinner drinks.

At the final meeting, which is required at least 2 weeks before your wedding, we will discuss the final details of your day including these matters. 

Our ceremony venue hire includes one hour of ceremony time which is more than adequate for almost any ceremony. 

Generally the ceremonies at Summerfields start between 3.00pm and 5.00pm, depending on your wedding program and the season.

We provide 32 chiavari chairs, a signing table, two signing chairs, and red carpet for both outdoor (if weather and ground conditions permit) and indoor as well as a cream carpet for indoor only. 

Yes you can, at an additional cost of $5.50 per chair. We suggest that chairs for each guest is not necessary as most guests excluding direct family and elderly guests are happy to stand.

Yes, but please let us know what you wish to do and we will advise if it is possible. 

Yes absolutely, as long as they do not damage the chairs

With outdoor ceremony, we generally allow anything except for non-biodegradable items and rice. With indoor most items are allowed including non-biodegradable items.

Normally people set up them at the pre-dinner drinks area. Once the guests move over to the reception room, your wishing well/gift registry will be moved by our staff over to the reception room.

We do all the basic setup for you, including tables and chairs, linens, napkins, cutlery, etc. We can also help you to place menus, table numbers, place cards and bonbonnieres, if you provide them to us latest by 10.30am on the Thursday (if your wedding is on Saturday) before your wedding

Provided that there is no wedding or function the day before your wedding, you are welcomed to come the day before to do setup. You would be able to come in two days before, please enquire with us closer to your wedding date

If you have a band, we generally recommend using the DJ or band’s PA. However we do have a portable PA system which you may use to play your song list using a phone, ipod or laptop. We also have a wireless microphone for speeches. 

Please email us to discuss as different numbers of guests will determine the type of tables. As a general guide however, our smaller round tables sit 10 people each and the bigger ones sit 12 people each. We also have square tables which fit 8 people as well as long rectangular tables which allow for more flexibility in seating numbers.

It’s better to keep to a maximum of 12 people including yourselves, but if you have more than 12 people please email us and we can discuss an alternative plan. 

We have an Excel sheet with a visual layout which is very handy. Usually just before the final meeting or immediately after, we will send you the Excel sheet so you can arrange your tables yourselves. The Excel sheet also allows you to indicate any guests with dietary requirements.

The rooms can accommodate up to 14 people. Extra beds can be made for extra four people. 

No, we don’t take bookings from guests directly, so all bookings have to come through you unless permitted by you. 

Yes, if you have a lot of guests who wish to stay overnight, we have a recommendation list for nearby accommodation. Please email us to request a copy.

The entire team led by Tania at Summerfields were amazing. From the very first meeting, they were always accommodating, prompts with their responses and eager to help with any requests. Petra was also amazing on the night, making sure the bridal party were well looked after with food and drink. The entire bridal party stayed at the venue for the weekend and we were looked after so well, with smooth check in, the rooms all amazing, and lots of great little touches with three course breakfast, and modifications for dietary requirements. The entire day and night , in fact weekend went off without a hitch, everything was perfect! The venue, well it speaks for itself, the house, reception hall and entire grounds are magical and the absolute perfect setting for an amazing wedding! Can not thank the entire team and staff at Summerfields for accommodating our every need and desire!
