Experience the ultimate garden ceremony at Iris Park, a Mornington Peninsula wedding venue which offers serenity, privacy, exclusivity and botanic beauty

Iris Park, a Mornington Peninsula wedding venue, is a secluded and tranquil 10-acre property of botanic beauty, situated towards the end of a country lane on the border of Hastings and Tuerong on the Mornington Peninsula.  A 300m-long stately drive lined with silver birches, pines, flowering gums and agapanthus leads to a series of formal garden rooms where well -tended lawns are encircled by elms, liquidambars, Manchurian pears, ashes and maples that provide dappled shade for the ceremony sites.

Gardens and Grounds

The property showcases a multitude of garden beds where roses, fuchsias, hydrangeas, iris, lilies, azaleas, begonias, bromeliads, geraniums and native hibiscus provide colour and fragrance.

The central formal gardens are surrounded by vast sections of native bushland which are linked by extensive grassed areas and an arm of Warringine Creek with its indigenous vegetation provides extra interest to the property.

Photographic Themes

Lush lawns, exhibition-standard flower gardens, native bushland, open parklands and stands of towering pines and eucalypts provide an immense variety of locations for your photographs.

A Balinese-style pool offers an opportunity for photographs with a tropical theme and if you would also like a coastal setting, the Western Port Marina with its pod of pelicans is only five minutes away.

Ceremony Locations

Your ceremony can be held in a leisurely fashion in the privacy of a formal garden or bushland setting, with an option to use the shelter of marquees.  Ample on-site parking is available for the wedding party, guests and service providers and power is connected to the wedding sites.

Whether you are planning a small, intimate wedding or a larger ceremony where up to 120 guests can be accommodated, Iris Park is a haven where your wedding can be celebrated on the Mornington Peninsula in idyllic surroundings. With its towering gums and mature exotic trees, the luxuriant vegetation at Iris Park has been compared to the Dandenongs, but with much easier access! Our property is only one hour’s travelling time from Melbourne via Peninsula Link.

Catering

In association with your wedding ceremony, you can treat your guests to canapes and snacks while you have your photographs taken.  Alternatively, provide a picnic lunch under the shade of our majestic trees after your morning wedding. Or do something entirely different and supply a high tea with a garden party theme in our park-like surroundings. Complimentary non-alcoholic drinks are provided by us at all ceremonies.

We invite you to visit and explore our exclusive parkland setting and discuss how we can make your wedding ceremony a wonderful and memorable occasion.

Inspections are by appointment only.  Closed for garden maintenance during July.
