Black Rock Beach Weddings

Black Rock beach weddings are becoming more and more popular due to the private location and close proximity to Melbourne.

Black Rock is located only 18 kilometres south east of Melbourne, along Port Phillip Bay. Lying between Sandringham and Beaumaris, Black Rock is only a very small suburb and can be easily missed. Black Rock beach is in Half Moon Bay which is home to the Black Rock Yacht Club. Its a relatively private beach as it is hidden by cliffs from the road and many visitors would not know it existed. There is a large ramp from the car park which leads straight on to the beach.

Although it can get quite windy, we had a relatively calm day and provided a bamboo wedding canopy and a few chairs for our small beach wedding, with our couple being from overseas. We also provided an area for guests to take their shoes off and leave in a basket prior to walking on the sand.

The only negative aspect is the large amount of algae on the beach, which we managed to remove from the ceremony area, but there are ample photo opportunities at Black Rock beach and in the surrounding suburbs.

In order to have your wedding at Black Rock beach, you must obtain a permit from the Bayside City Council. The cost of the permit is between $450 and $500 and is for a 2 hour time period. There is ample parking for your guests as the beach is located right near the Black Rock Yacht Club and long pier.

Flinders Golf Club wedding

The beautiful Flinders Golf Club wedding venue is located in Flinders just over an hour from Melbourne, right on the tip of the Mornington Peninsula. This venue is a popular wedding venue due to its amazing views stretching from Western Port Bay to Bass Strait. The clubhouse is elevated providing stunning views, with the bay as a backdrop for the wedding ceremony on the 18th hole.

Berwick Botanical Gardens wedding

Circle of Love had the privilege of styling a Berwick Botanical Gardens wedding reception last January. Also known as the Wilson Botanic Park, Berwick, we were the first wedding since the refurbishment of the Lakeside lawn ceremony area which was closed for all of summer.

There a a few ceremony spots within the park including the Lakeside lawn, Rotunda, amphitheatre and rose garden. There is then a small function space near the Lakeside lawn where you can hold a small wedding reception. The council will provide tables and chairs as well as offer recommended caterers for your function. Although there are multiple areas to hold your wedding, the park is only open until 9pm, so please keep this in mind when considering this location as your venue.

Linley Estate chapel

Linley Estate Chapel

The most beautiful, intimate wedding ceremonies are continuing to be held in chapels all around Australia. A good chapel is hard to find and decorating the space can be even harder.

We found this gorgeous sand stone chapel at the foot of the dandenongs at Linley Estate Receptions in Croydon, about 45 minutes east of Melbourne. This modern chapel can seat up to 135 guests plus standing room and is fully equipped with air conditioning and a surround sound system.

The front of the chapel has a big window with a fountain outside and hanging chandelier from the roof. The Circle of Love wedding arch has been built perfectly to fit the elevated space providing a stunning backdrop for your wedding photography. For that extra touch, we can also provide 2 wedding pillars with flower or rose ball arrangements as well as flowers and bows for the end of the aisle pews.

Carlton Gardens wedding

Congratulations to Elissa and Leigh who had their Carlton Gardens wedding on the 24th of October 2015.

Carlton Gardens in located right in the middle of Melbourne’s CBD with views of the Exhibition building.

Elissa chose a beautiful large tree on lawn 12 as the backdrop for their wedding ceremony and chose quite a simple package as the lush gardens speak for themselves.

Shade can sometimes be an issue in public places as although there are lots of trees, they don’t always work as a place for guests to stand under at the ceremony. We worked together to create the best possible package to keep things simple but also considering the guests. We came up with the following wedding ceremony equipment:

  • White Americana chairs
  • White aisle runner
  • Signing table with cloth and 2 chairs
  • 2 x White market umbrellas for shade
  • 20 x White parasols to provide additional shade
  • 2 x Ice buckets on stands with 25 bottles of water in each
  • 3 x welcome easels to direct guests to ceremony area

Sorrento Historical Park Wedding

It was a perfect spring day for a Sorrento Historical Park Wedding ceremony on Friday 9th October 2015. Not a breath of wind and the sun was shining for Rhiannon and Scott’s wedding day.

We met with Rhiannon over a year ago to discuss her dream wedding ceremony. Her reception was being held in Sorrento, but she wanted a garden wedding close by, so the Sorrento Historical Park Wedding venue was the perfect choice.

Sorrento Historial Park is located opposite the Sorrento Hotel with a large children’s playground, rotunda and beautiful views over Port Phillip Bay.

Rhiannon’s favourite colour is pink but did not want to go to over the top, so we kept things traditional in white but added some splashes of pink. The package we finalised was as follows:

  • Four post white canopy with chiffon draping and silk flowers along the top consisting of white and pink flowers
  • Hanging crystals and tea light candle holders
  • White Americana chairs
  • Hanging lanterns with silk rose petals along the aisle
  • Signing table with cloth for signing
  • Personalised rose petal cones
