How much extra will our ceremony & venue hire be?

Montsalvat's ceremony & reception packages include your ceremony, this is not an additional fee.

Our 6 hour packages include your ceremony, time for your wedding photography on our 12-acre property, pre-reception drinks and canapes for your guests and your main reception. 

Do you have a minimum spend?

No. Montsalvat has minimum booking numbers instead, 

This is 80 adults on a Saturday and 60 adults Sunday- Friday. 

Do you have noise restrictions?

Unless you want us to say so, to stop Uncle Rogers' singing on the microphone or his bad impersonations you may provide any band you like or have the music as loud as you want until your booking ends at your package end time. 

Do you allow BYO or us to provide our own catering?

Montsalvat does not have a BYO liquor licence and as such does not allow external catering.

We love creating and tailoring our packages to suit your wedding and love to discuss this with you on how we can custom your menu for you. 

Do you allow pets at Montsalvat?

Yes, Yes and YES :)

As we have our own variety of animals here at Montsalvat we do ask that they remain on a leash, but we welcome them to be a part of your special day.

A stunning wedding venue. We opted for late autumn and got the overcast day we were hoping for (we thought it added to the medieval charm of the buildings!). Both Bec and Laura the wedding coordinators were extremely helpful in assisting us in the lead up to the wedding and helped run the show on the night. They were very accommodating with our additional candle decorations and set up the venue as requested. The food on the night was delicious by all accounts. The wedding ceremony space was stunning.

Absolutely beautiful venue and fantastic, friendly expert staff. Montsalvat is the perfect backdrop to any wedding, whether indoors or outside. The food for the Seasonal Harvest Banquet menu was exceptional, delicious, fresh, bounteous, and a fun, fabulous alternative to the standard traditional boring wedding choice of just "chicken or beef".

Montsalvat were great in the lead up to the day and were very helpful with keeping me organised. They were great on the night and set up was all done by the venue as well. It looked absolutely stunning. We had a banquet style which everyone loved at the wedding. Was very easy to get around to speak to all of our guests and the food tasted amazing.

The venue was very accommodating for our COVID-19 wedding without much notice at all! It was beautiful and many people have asked for the location.

Montsalvat is such a beautiful venue! We live interstate so organisation was difficult by phone and email but they were very accommodating when we were available in person. On the day our event coordinator was absolutely brilliant, going above and beyond in a number of ways. Thank you!

Montsalvat was the perfect venue for us, Laura ensured the day ran smoothly, it really is one of the most beautiful and unique venues. Our photographs turned out amazing and our guests loved the gardens and peacocks!

We could not have been happier with Montsalvat! The staff were amazing, the venue beautiful and the food absolutely incredible! We had the table shared menu and the amount of food was fantastic, as was the quality. Could not recommend this as a wedding venue highly enough

Flawless from start to finish! If you're looking for your dream ceremony at a reasonable price then this is your go to place. The coordinators Graham and Rebecca are marvellous, quirky and warm. We weren't the most organised couple and they really helped us keep on track and to not feel overwhelmed by the big day.

10 Aug 2018

Great day and perfect venue. Grant who was on charge in the day made it run smoothly on the day.

4 Mar 2018

Halil & I decided to get married at Montsalvat as we would spend many weekends in the grounds admiring the gorgeous art and beautiful architecture. We loved the European design and old world feel and felt it was perfect for us to exchange our vows.

15 Dec 2017

Stunning venue. Included everything we were looking for and more. Were very easy to work with and Bec made the day so special by being there and making sure we were happy! They all went out of their way to assist with any question and we couldn't have wished for a more perfect location.

9 Dec 2017

The venue is such so beautiful and staff was really easy to work with.
