So you’ve said “yes”, well you eventually said yes, after the being so excited that he finally popped the question you burst into tears and actually forgot to accept, and with everyone’s five cents as to exactly how and where you should get married and your head all a spin, it’s time to finally start planning your big day.

First on the check list is your reception venue and if you’re looking for a truly unique space that will add sophistication and elegance to your day, to keep those outsiders with too many opinions at bay, look no further than the National Gallery of Victoria. Just a few minutes’ walk from the CBD and in the heart of Melbourne’s arts precinct, the NGV is home to some of the world’s most famous artworks. Boasting two elegant and timeless venues, suitable for intimate and grand celebrations alike, this one of a kind Melbourne Wedding Venue is sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests.

Wow your nearest and dearest with a dining experience in the grandeur of the Great Hall, beneath Leonard French’s impressive stained glass ceiling as they take in the surrounds of the striking architecture. Guests can recall the exchanging of your vows during pre-dinner drinks in Federation Court under the soaring glass ceiling and if you’re lucky enough, they may even have the chance to do so in the surrounds of a unique installation from a world famous artist. For those balmy summer nights, pre-dinners can also be enjoyed out on the terrace with some light live jazz in the background to get everyone in the mood.

For intimate weddings, Persimmon transforms from a highly regarded restaurant by day to a contemporary, elegant venue by night, ideal for elegant seated dinners or for something more relaxed, stunning cocktail parties. Overlooking the Grollo Equiset Garden, this stunning space is modern and chic and boasts a backdrop of the city skyline which provides an artistic and stylish setting. On arrival guests will be greeted by a private board-walk entry down to the gardens, offering the perfect location for pre-dinner drinks.

If you’d prefer your guests avoid travelling between your ceremony and reception, without the worry that they stop for a “quick” bar crawl along the way, NGV also offers the option to exchange your vows on site. Garden ceremonies here are stunning and can be held prior to the reception in the gardens under a beautiful arbour, adorned by shady vines and surrounded by the artwork by world renowned artists. Impressive and exclusive photo opportunities will also add a memorable touch to your wedding album.

Not many couples are able to boast about holding their wedding celebrations in a venue like the NGV, so make sure it’s on your “must see” list when you are venue hunting this summer.
