WEDDING BELLES. Say “I will” have a Peter Rowland wedding and we’ll wave our magic wand and make doves fly. Wedding belles can walk down the aisle at our stately venues and beachside locations and feast on a bespoke menu designed by our new Group Executive Chef Matthew Haigh. We guarantee an exquisite Main Course and everything in between. Our attentive kitchen leader is all ears to carefully listen to what the bride desires. Chef Haigh said one of the first things company founder Peter Rowland, OAM, instilled in him was: “Look after the bride.” Because our expert team of wedding planners care as much about your special day as you do, we always have “something new” to offer the bride and her groom. You can definitely have your wedding cake and eat it, too. Love is always in the air at the Port Melbourne Yacht Club on a hot summer night. Imagine pre-dinner drinks on the magnificent over-water deck then an elegant banquet indoors for 150 guests or cocktail party for 250. The stars will twinkle through the stunning floor-to-ceiling windows as you dance the night away.
This Day Forward
The heritage-listed Rippon Lea House & Gardens was built in 1868 and is eternally yours when you waltz into married life. The grand ballroom with majestic chandelier is a lofty locale for Miss and Ms to become Mrs and celebrate with a banquet for 180 guests or cocktail soiree for 250. Take in the night air while strolling through 14 acres of magnificent manicured gardens. Your stroll down memory lane after celebrating your nuptials will be all the more everlasting at our new venue, Butler Lane. The “something new” in Richmond features a modern warehouse with light filled open-plan interior that is reached by a secret courtyard. “Shhh” - wedding in progress. Embrace summer - and your future husband or wife - during a romantic ceremony in the landscaped courtyard garden then party the night away under the stars. Start drawing up your guest list and we’ll create a sublime banquet for 160 or cocktail soiree for 250. The union of lovers can commence with a “Peach Kiss” cocktail or “Pink Kiss” mocktail then a culinary feast of your choosing. We want the bride to have an effortless day by offering complete event management by a dedicated wedding planner with unlimited styling opportunities. When it’s time to depart on your honeymoon, you’ll love Butler Lane to the moon and back.
We were proud to support the resounding “YES” vote in the same-sex marriage survey for marriage equality. Every component of our business supports equality and because “Love is love” we love all weddings. If you are tickled pink over this historic change and cue the Abba hit “I do, I do, I do, I do, I do” for your nuptials, we’ll come to the party with a “We do” cater same-sex weddings.
