If you are looking for a classic Victorian backdrop for your wedding, one of the places you should consider is Werribee Mansion, just 30 minutes west of Melbourne. It was built in the 19th century by wealthy sheep farmers, and very specific attention was paid to making the Italianate-style architecture authentic and magnificent. The 10 hectares of formal garden that surround the mansion are kept up beautifully. In addition to the beauty of the mansion itself and the gardens, it makes a great place for a destination wedding because of the Mansion Hotel and Spa located in a separate wing. It makes for a luxurious place for guests to stay as well as the bride and groom. The 5 star accommodations will not disappoint and if your guests are looking for things to do, there is an open range zoo right on the premises as well.
