The Convent, Daylesford… One magical location.
The Convent is Daylesford’s most iconic building… nestled atop of Wombat Hill; amidst six acres of enchanting gardens; overlooking the township.
Built in the 1850’s for the Gold Commissioner, this amazing building has been lovingly restored… offering today’s bridal couples a truly unique wedding venue.
All under the one roof… The Convent really has it all.
Your wedding starts and ends there - your ceremony, photos, reception and the after-party, along with staying in the Penthouse on your wedding night.
This unique venue offers you a choice of two stunning reception rooms: the St. Lawrence Room and the St Michael’s Room. You will love the artwork adorned throughout, the natural light, the architectural features combining the old with the new and the sheer beauty everywhere you turn!
The Convent prides itself on creating memorable weddings that your guests will talk about for years to come. Your guests will be wined & dined with warm and efficient service.
Say “I do” to each other in front of your family & friends at The Convent; it offers a range of magnificent ceremony locations.
For a traditional ceremony, there is the Chapel… for a contemporary style ceremony, there is the Atrium…and if you prefer an outdoor ceremony, there are two amazing garden locations!!
With your ceremony on-site… you and your guests have ease of access to the reception.
The St Lawrence room seats up to 60 guests… with a dancefloor in the fully glassed atrium - having your guests dancing under the stars. There is a decking area flowing out into the picturesque gardens, which are charmingly back-lit in the evening AND a balcony overlooking Daylesford ( and unforgettable sunsets ).
The St Michaels room seats up to 120 guests and includes a dance floor. There are bi-folding doors that open on to the decking which is lit up with festoon lighting - allowing your guests to mingle outdoors, yet still be part of the celebration inside.
The Altar Bar
After the reception ends, you and your guests can continue the celebrations in The Convent’s stylish Altar Bar. With cosy couches & plush armchairs, your guests can enjoy jazz music whilst having a few quiet drinks or pump up the volume and party on! The after-party in the Altar Bar is a definite highlight of wedding celebrations. It allows you to let your hair down and party – on with your guests.
The Penthouse apartment is also on-site... boasting a boudoir style curtained bed, a luxurious hydrotherapy spa, fully equipped kitchenette, gorgeous views of the cascading gardens and an open-style living area… complete with log fire.
Its proximity allows you to slip away for some “alone time” during the reception… the stylish suite has all the qualities for a romantic wedding night!
