Not only are DIY wedding venues much more affordable, it also a great way to put your personal touch on the day. We’ve been lucky enough to provide drinks catering in some of the most spectacular DIY venues across Victoria, from rolling hills in the Yarra Valley, to industrial warehouses in Fitzroy and clifftop views on the Mornington Peninsula. Here’s our top picks of DIY wedding venues in Victoria. Which one is calling your name?
Freshwater Creek Cottages
Animals, peace, serenity, nature, what more could you want from a farm-stay location? Picture long tables running between the olive groves, festoon lights, a sheep shed turned bar, fire pits and cottages for all your guests to stay the night too.
Country Heart, Coldstream
How about 750 acres of rolling Yarra Valley hills for a perfect backdrop? Featuring an old 1960's Hanger with polished concrete floors, high ceilings, corrugated iron, exposed structural beams. If you're looking for rustic and industrial with views, this is it.

Phoenix Park, Ballan

A historic blue stone chapel located near Geelong can be the centre of the ourdoor wedding of your dreams. Picture food trucks, cocktails on tap, sunsets and dancing under the stars.
