Weddings at Melrose

At Melrose, we want your dream of the perfect wedding to become reality. 

Weddings are special events, so we require a full house hire to ensure yours goes off without a hitch. This means that you have full access to the house and gardens on your wedding day - from ceremony, to photographs in the House and on our grounds, and for your reception. Brides and Grooms often use the upstairs Boardroom and Library to get ready with members of their wedding parties, including wardrobe changes for the reception and/or departure. The full house hire package also includes on-the-day support from our Functions Manager. 

Click here to take a virtual tour and get a closer look at what Melrose has to offer for your wedding. 

Full House Wedding Hire:

$1200 +GST (up to 4 hours)
$1500 +GST (up to 8 hours)
$2000 +GST (up to 13 hours)

  • This cost includes exclusive use of the venue
  • A functions manager can be provided at an extra cost
  • Excludes the portion of the House occupied by the Melrose Cafe. Use of the Cafe area is an extra cost, and by arrangement with the Cafe directly. (There is also a private, first-floor apartment which is excluded from all full house hires)

"Of all of the emotions, love is the greatest. It is soft and tender and at the same time, powerful and sweeping. It carries the weight of memory and is light and promising for the future. Let me capture that and all it means for you." - Luke Marshall


Ana Galloway

Ana is driven by those captivating moments between her subjects and the beautiful expressions that can pass in a moment, but when captured, will last a lifetime. In Ana's work, she strives to highlight the time and effort that has gone into your wedding day by photographing the little details and by letting the love, laughter and beauty of the celebration speak for themselves. 

"I love light and sometimes I curse it, but when the subject, the light and the composition are just right, it makes my heart smile. Those are the moments that inspire me" - Ana Galloway
