What makes a wedding at The Grove Gippsland so special?

We’re all about the individual experience, every couple is unique so they’re wedding needs to reflect who they are. We love bringing those special touches to our venue, if you want your best buddy Fido as best man – no problem, its all about you.

What is it that sets The Grove Gippsland apart from other venues?

Our team is amazing – professional, approachable  – we know what we’re doing and we take it very seriously. The Grove Events team is a family too. I think that shows in everything we do, we really care – about each other, our guests, our couples. We’re a part of the magical memory making too, we wont be in the photos but we’ll be in the background making sure everything is as perfect as it can be.

We also have the most beautiful property that offers couples natural tranquility and rustic elegance, a blank canvas where couples can create their dream day. Equally if couples aren’t too sure how to turn that dream into a reality we can help out as much or as little as they want. Nothing is too big or too small.

The Grove is 60 acres of endless photo opportunities, lots of outdoor ceremony sites.

We have the lake site (self explanatory), the terrace, a simple english hedge backdrop suitable for smaller gatherings. Our most popular site is the helipad with a choice of beautiful backdrops. Either the view over  lush farmland hills to the waters of Port Philip bay or our native eucalypt plantation.

Our reception area called the Conservatory has floor-to-ceiling glass bi-fold doors opening out onto gently rolling hills and the olive grove itself. So many options to make the perfect celebration

What are your 4 top tips that you can share with our couples to plan a successful wedding.

  • Try not to stress. A wedding is a special day but it’s all about you and your favourite people coming together to celebrate how much you all mean to each other and wishing you the best for your future together. Bringing all that magic together is our job so you can relax and enjoy all that love.
  • Think about the things that are really important to you and forget all the other stuff
  • Don’t over think it, you always end up in a pickle
  • Simple is always best

Why do you do what you do?

Who doesn’t love a wedding?! 

We get such a huge kick out of creating a special day for people, bringing it all together for that oh wow moment, the food, the drinks, music and most importantly the fun. Every one is different so you’re not just repeating the same old tired routine, you’re creating memories for people that they’ll take with them wherever they go in life, that’s an honor to be a part of.

Also I think we’re all sentimentals at heart too, you’ll probably catch us with a little tear during the speeches. That’s what team Grove is all about.

Are there any trends you are noticing when it comes to planning a wedding here in Gippsland that you can share with our readers?

We’ve seen an increase in Melbourne couples who want a more relaxed casual wedding, a chance to relax and breathe the country air.

Micro weddings have made a bit of a splash too, not quite an elopement but more intimate and simplified.

Lastly, do you have any wedding day advice you would like to pass onto our readers?

Take a minute to stop and breathe. You’ve got this, we’ve got this, remember everyone you love is wishing you the best and waiting to get on the dance floor and party!
