Weddings at Lake House
Lake House is one of Australia’s most award-winning boutique hotels, nestled on the shores of beautiful Lake Daylesford.
It’s the perfect setting for your wedding in the heart of Victoria’s Spa Country. Famous for its award-winning destination restaurant and stunning lakeside setting, Lake House specialises in creating unforgettable, bespoke weddings.
We have a choice of stunning ceremony locations - from our lakeside, set with silver birches and glistening water views to the ‘Stringy Bark’ terrace with an elevated position overlooking Lake Daylesford.
Or perhaps you’d prefer the lagoon foreshore, lined with hand-cut Castlemaine stone. It’s a gorgeous location which showcases water views of the lake and lagoon. It’s also a magical spot to watch the sun set over the shore.
Have you considered having a winter wedding? The Lake House is beautiful in the colder months with misty mornings and clear, star-filled skies.
The ‘Waterfront Pavilion’ has direct lake views and is a great space for pre-celebratory drinks before the big event.
Alternatively, you could celebrate with your guests by the roaring open fire in the ‘Terrace Room’.
We’re very proud of our award-winning food, produced by one of Australia’s top restaurants, which has been awarded two ‘Chefs Hats’ by the Age Good Food Guide.
Our cellar contains some 10,000 bottles and has been recognised as one one of the best in the country.
We’d love to work with you to tailor the menu options for your special day.
Our location options:
‘The Cellar’ – A romantic private-dining option, ‘The Cellar’ is the perfect space for an intimate celebration. Surrounded by a ‘wall of wine’, the highlight of ‘The Cellar’ is the hand crafted American Oak table which was crafted locally.
‘The Waterfront Pavilion’- Set directly underneath our main restaurant, ‘The Waterfront Pavilion’ features two walls of glass that provide spectacular views of the lagoon.
‘The Terrace’ - A modern space with country charm has vaulted ceilings, spans of glass windows and stone accents. The space can host anything from an intimate celebration for up to 40 guests by shimmering candlelight to a grand celebration with 150 guests, including a dance floor, stage and private bar.
‘Exclusive Use’ - For a truly magical event you can book the entire hotel for your friends and family to celebrate in total privacy and exclusivity.
We’re proud that the beautiful Lake House has been recognised in the Conde Nast Traveller Gold List as one of the best boutique hotels in the world.
We have 33 rooms and suites – 24 of which have picturesque waterfront views and 7 of which enjoy a lush garden setting in addition to ‘The Retreat’ - our secluded luxury Country House.
‘The Salus Spa’ - An oasis of peace and tranquility, The Salus Spa is the perfect place to pamper yourself and your bridesmaids before your wedding.
We offer pre-wedding packages that will leave you on ‘Cloud Nine’ - relaxed and ready for your special day.
