Ancient Stump Garden

Your Mornington Peninsula wedding day can be a dream come true at Iris Park

Make your Mornington Peninsula wedding day special and unique with an unforgettable ceremony in the ancient stump garden, the jewel in the crown at Iris Park Garden Weddings. At the heart of the Ancient Stump Garden lies a majestic, century-old, indigenous stringy bark tree that protects the gnarled remains of another huge native tree from a bygone era. This garden-room contains lush lawn and is bounded on two sides by formal flower gardens featuring several varieties of roses as well as irises and other perennial flowering shrubs. Views to the east are of mature eucalypts and acacias dotted amongst extensive lawns.  To the south lies Warringine Creek, with native bushland featuring tea trees and indigenous grasses.

The bridal party may enter The Ancient Stump Garden grandly and spectacularly by any of three unobtrusive corridors each of which is shaded by the leafy limbs of mature trees, or more directly, via a substantial Victorian-style archway that supports a range of climbing roses and vines. The secluded, intimate setting lends itself to a diverse array of ceremony set-ups any one of which would readily accommodate your guests according to your wishes.
