Have the Wedding of Your Dreams at Glen Erin
There are many factors that go towards making the perfect wedding, such as a beautiful dress, stunning flowers, having your friends and family around you and a bit of luck with the weather, but one element that is fundamental in ensuring your wedding day lives up to your dreams is the right choice of wedding venue.
A recent bridal survey found that most brides (64%) visit between two and five different possible venues before selecting one, but you can be sure that once you have visited Glen Erin at Lancefield, you won’t want to look any further.
A Romantic Setting
Nestled in the picturesque countryside of the Macedon Ranges in central Victoria, Glen Erin really is the ideal wedding destination. The grounds offer both vineyard settings and landscaped gardens, which are beautiful to explore and provide a spectacular backdrop to the all-important wedding photographs. It is also easy to get to. The hotel is only a 35-minute car journey from Melbourne Airport, making it easily accessible for your guests no matter where they are traveling from.
Glen Erin has the facilities to host not only your wedding reception, but also the ceremony itself, with a purpose built chapel looking out across the vineyard and gardens, as well as an alfresco ceremonial dais. Both of these locations provide a beautiful and romantic setting for you and your husband-to-be to exchange your vows and begin your new lives together.
The fact that the ceremony and reception can be held in the same venue is a real bonus when it comes to planning, as there is no need to worry about arranging transport to get the wedding party and guests from one location to another. Glen Erin also offers 30 luxurious ensuite rooms that can be booked by guests at a preferential rate, again adding to the convenience of their travel arrangements.
Peace of mind
A wedding is undoubtedly a day of joy and celebration, but it also represents a significant investment in both time and money on the part of the bridal couple and their family. Planning a wedding can be time consuming, but the experienced staff at Glen Erin will be on hand to relieve the stress and provide help and advice at every stage. Weddings can also be as affordable or expensive as you like, but for those with bigger budgets there can be some considerable financial outlays. To look after this investment the bride and groom are advised to take out some form of financial protection to cover the bridal outfits and other big expense items. This will provide peace of mind in the unlikely event of something happening to disrupt the carefully made arrangements, and will allow all concerned to relax and enjoy the big day without worrying about the ‘what ifs’ and ‘maybes.’
Dedicated wedding coordinator
A wedding is often the culmination of months of planning, and can be a highly stressful experience for all concerned. Too often the most important parties in the wedding – the bridal couple and their close family – don’t get to relax and enjoy the day because they are too busy worrying about all the small details.
Fortunately, Glen Erin has a dedicated wedding coordinator who can take a lot of this worry from you. From the moment you contact the hotel to discuss your wedding plans to the big day itself, our experienced coordinator will work with you to ensure your wedding is all you ever hoped it would be. As a result, you and your new husband will be able to relax, secure in the knowledge that all the details have been taken care of, and enjoy what is undoubtedly one of the most important days of your lives.
Glen Erin recognises that weddings can be an expensive time and that couples don’t have an infinite amount of money available to spend. The hotel therefore offers an all-inclusive wedding package that can be tailored to meet individual requirements, and will help couples manage their budget by providing a clear cost. This package includes a choice of menus, drinks, flowers and a host of other options to ensure the wedding is a truly enjoyable event.
At the same time however, the staff at Glen Erin recognise that every wedding is unique, and will do whatever they can to make your wedding a truly personal experience. So whatever you are looking for, whether it is additional entertainment for your guests, or morning-after brunches, then our wedding coordinator will be happy to discuss options with you.
Your wedding should be a day that leaves you with only the happiest of memories that stay with you forever, so don’t compromise on quality. Contact Glen Erin at Lancefield today and start planning the wedding of your dreams.
