The Abbotsford Convent presents a graceful and ambient setting for romantic weddings and unique celebrations.
Dating back to 1863 the Convent’s French medieval architecture set amongst formal gardens sweeping down to the Yarra River has been one of Melbourne’s best kept secrets.
Today the Convent has been transformed into a thriving art and cultural precinct, and the surrounding gardens and historic buildings are an impressive and distinctive backdrop to any event.
The manicured Heritage Gardens are a picturesque backdrop for ceremonies; perhaps with a relaxed, yet elegant, picnic style gathering afterwards. Alternatively, you can slip away and have romantic photographs taken in a range of enchanting settings.
The grand Rosina function space offers a sophisticated atmosphere with polished floorboards, stained glass window tops and a private courtyard.
Holding your wedding at the Abbotsford Convent ticks the boxes of Melbourne inner urban chic in a gorgeous rustic environment. While your guests from the country will hardly know that they are in Melbourne, your city friends will be feeling right at home at only 4kms from the CBD.
From the formal to the informal; Provincial Events specialises in both the small and intimate and the large and extravagant. Entertainment could entail music from a String Quartet or live band; or amusements such as magicians.
Your function Coordinator will ensure your function runs effortlessly on the day. All you need to do is to relax and enjoy your special day in the comfort and splendor that the Abbotsford Convent has to offer.
