The venue also makes for the perfect getaway destination engagement party with family and friends or as a honeymoon retreat.

What additional features and facilities does your venue offer that couples may find useful?

Our property boasts a hand-built wood-fired oven, perfect for country dining. We have a long pebbled courtyard with fine country outdoor tables that sit under a canopy of mature trees. Magical outdoor fairy lights and late afternoon sun create the most unique and dreamy venue. If the weather is not so perfect we bring in long white marquees.


What type of couple would fall in love with your venue and why?

Couples who fall in love with the place, are couples who love country luxe, couples who want their wedding to be an intimate family affair. The very beautiful outdoor courtyard which is nestled between our cottages is often compared to a courtyard in Provence, France set with white table cloths, silver candelabras, and delicious homemade country food. Couples who come here for romantic weekends are couples who love simple elegance, and nature at its best.

Editor’s Notes

Why we love it…

Understated yet so beautifully considered. Welcoming with a sense of countryside authenticity, Poets Lodge is the perfect destination outside of nearby Melbourne for an intimate celebration charted with heart and soul.


For the couple…

Searching for a venue that can be for either their engagement or wedding which combines nostalgic charm and modern comforts, to create that relaxed home away from home feeling to truly switch off and be lost in the celebration.


Styling tips…

Opt for one long table in the courtyard setting the table with loose, white linen cloth, mismatched aged brass candelabras, handwritten menus, and wildly romantic florals. Personalize your evening starting with your own signature cocktails, ending the celebration slow dancing under the stars to a playlist your guests each contribute to.
