Marybrooke is a breathtaking tudor style wedding venue that can turn your special day into a truly memorable experience.
Marybrooke is nestled on the edge of the majestic Sherbrooke Forest in the Dandenong Ranges. The magnificent National Trust listed reception centre and guest house is the perfect one-stop destination for your wedding ceremony & reception.
Built in 1940, Marybrooke began as the grandest guesthouse in a chain of six guesthouses all using the pre-fix of "Mary". Over recent years Marybrooke has undergone extensive renovations to restore and reinstate the building to reflect it's original charm and elegance.
For ceremonies, we have a picturesque outdoor garden lawn area with gazebo and up to 110 chairs. Alternatively, our indoor ceremony area has beautiful garden outlooks and is always available as a wet weather fall back.
Over eight acres of gardens provides ample photo opportunities, but you can also use our heritage drawing room for indoor shots.
With spectacular garden views, our reception room with a large portable dance floor can perfectly reflect your elegant style. Pre-dinner drinks and canapes can be provided in the Wine Garden with the Manor providing a magnificent backdrop, or in the indoor bar as a fall back.
We offer a flexible range of all-inclusive ceremony & reception packages tailored to your individual needs. From traditional sit down dining to shared platter dining, cocktail receptions and high tea garden parties. We also have a Boutique Package available to couples who want to have their wedding on a Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday or on any available day within three months of booking. Menu tastings can also be arranged. We also have the Marybrooke app designed specifically for our couples to communicate and store all their important documents.
With 20 recently refurbished four-star accommodation suites and a separate four bedroom cottage able to sleep over 60 guests in total, we can also cater for your guests' accommodation needs. Breakfast is included in all our room rates.
You can stay at the Manor the night before and spend the day in our bridal lounge getting ready while your partner prepares at the nearby Cottage and enjoys a late check out. You can also enjoy breakfast with your guests the next morning after spending the night in our complimentary bridal suite.
And remember - we only host one wedding per day.
We (Deborah and Andrew Judkins) have worked in hospitality for a vast majority of our careers, stretching over 20 years. With a background in various management roles and a passion for weddings, we have great attention to detail. We love what we do and are very proud of the 18 years that we have owned our wedding reception venues.
