Top 10 Airbnb Wedding Venues In Melbourne, Australia - Updated 2024

| 6 min read

Melbourne is the capital of Victoria. Although it often hides behind the shadows of Sydney, Melbourne proves itself to be an excellent wedding destination. When marrying in Victoria, you must lodge a Notice of Intended Marriage at least one month before your nuptials. The physical presence of two witnesses when solemnizing your marriage is also required.

Bounded by Port Philip, this coastal city abounds with pristine beaches that offer an enchanting setting for getting hitched. Some iconic seaside locations are Brighton Beach, St Kilda Beach, St Pauls Beach, and Half Moon Bay. Meanwhile, if you prefer a sophisticated ceremony with a touch of arts and history, this city provides several locations to suit your needs.

Should you need more options, we compiled a list to help you plan one of the biggest days of your life. Scroll down for the top Airbnb wedding venues in Melbourne, Australia.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) host status, recent reviews, location, venue options, costs and packages, amenities, guest accommodation, and event restrictions and regulations. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on April 14, 2024.
