Steeped in history, Montsalvat offers a truly unique setting for a memorable and romantic Wedding or an extraordinary Event
Although Montsalvat has the look of a 1600’s European castle it was actually built in 1934 by Justus Jorgensen and is located just 24kms from the CBD on 12 acres of Heritage Listed buildings & grounds.
One word describes the feeling you get when you first visit Montsalvat and that is Breathtaking. The grounds at Montsalvat are pristine and there are so many beautiful places on site to take photographs and feel like you are taking a step back in time.
Your wedding ceremony can be held in the Upper Gallery or in the Intimate Bluestone Chapel. If weather permits, you may also have an outdoor ceremony amongst our stunning grounds. Montsalvat will provide you with an unforgettable Reception in the Great Hall, or perhaps a cocktail party by the Ornamental Pool is more your style. Menu choices include seasonal harvests, traditional dining, or opulent canapés. The sumptuous food is prepared on site, fresh from the gardens of Montsalvat and using produce from Melbourne’s premier suppliers.
There are many spaces at Montsalvat for either a ceremony or a reception with capacity from 30-200 guests.
Our cars will usually drive down the gravel driveway to drop the bridal party down near the grand hall. The drive is somewhat steep however as our cars are not as long as modern limos we are able to make this trip quite easily. The other spot we can bring our cars to is the back of the Long Gallery and ornamental pool.
For a truly unique venue we encourage couples to consider Montsalvat for their wedding. Not only are the buildings and grounds simply beautiful but the staff at Montsalvat are friendly and always willing to help make your wedding day perfect. It’s the mix of old world European charm which makes this venue so appropriate with our old classic European wedding cars.
We find that the most popular cars that couples choose for their transport to this venue are our Two Tone Rolls Royce, Bentley’s or Jaguars as they seem to work well with the lush green gardens and blue stone buildings.
