Categories: 5 minutes with

This stylish and charming country retreat set in the historic goldfields region of Victoria is the ideal venue for your wedding. Located opposite the iconic Sovereign Hill, the four star Ballarat Lodge and Convention Centre is surrounded by immaculate gardens - the perfect backdrop for a romantic ceremony.

Renowned for their elegant cocktail receptions and country hospitality, couples can choose from a range of boutique function rooms or grand Victorian-style ballrooms. The Lodge also features 71 well-appointed guest rooms, a luxurious day spa, swimming pool and complimentary car parking.

What is the most memorable wedding you have held so far?
Recently we were lucky enough to host a large, Sri Lankan wedding with 400 people in attendance. The variety of different coloured Saris transformed the ballroom into a colourful array of excitement and texture. This elegant wedding marked the largest wedding event in the Ballarat Lodge and Convention Centre’s history.

Any tips for our brides & grooms?

Research a wedding style to suit your personalities, consider how many guests you would like and decide on a budget. Book well in advance if you want a particular date, taking into consideration long weekends and public holidays.

Why should our couples choose the Ballarat Lodge for their wedding venue?
Ballarat Lodge and Convention Centre is set amongst beautiful gardens, which provides not only a gorgeous setting for a wedding but also ample photo opportunities. The old stone buildings and surroundings provide photographers with great inspiration and texture. The diversity of the different rooms allows your style and size of wedding to be adapted to our property with great ease. Our wedding planner is both very experienced and multi-talented, which takes the stress off the couple.

What do your wedding packages include?
Our wedding packages include: three course dinners, beverages for five hours, chair covers & sashes of your choice, canapés and port. Also included is overnight accommodation in a spa room, with sparkling wine on arrival for the bride & groom and full buffet breakfast the following morning. To choose a specific package to suite your style and budget, you can find them here. Don’t forget that we are happy to tailor a menu for you, should none of these suit.

What extra services do you offer to ensure it truly is a special day?
We pride ourselves in leaving no stone unturned. We manage every facet of your function by initiating a complete wedding check list starting 18 months prior to the special day. We offer the special couple a suppliers list for their convenience, and on the evening we provide complimentary cutting of the cake. Complimentary dance floor, lectern and microphone are also included. If you have guests who would like to enjoy the occasion by staying the night, we offer a 10% discount off the guest’s accommodation rate. Come down to our Bridal Expo at Ballarat Lodge and Convention Centre so we can assist you in the ultimate planning of your wedding day.
