If, like us, you’ve ever had lofty dreams of having your own country estate, you'll probably be reluctant to share Lindenderry at Red Hill with anyone else – even the staff. Lindenderry was inspired by the house-come-hotels of Europe and sits in the hinterland of the Mornington Peninsula, only a 45-minute drive from the Melbourne CBD. On the property, expect to find boutique accommodation, 30 acres of vineyard and private gardens.
For your wedding at Lindenderry, you can take your pick from al fresco ceremony spaces: the vineyard, a sunken garden, the homestead garden or lakeside. If you and your groom aren’t the outdoorsy type, the Peninsula lounge is for you. Receptions can be held indoors or outdoors, including in the Linden Tree dining room, the cellar door or in a custom-built marquee perched on the tennis court.
To make sure your day comes together your way, Lindenderry has a wedding coordinator and two wedding supervisors, who are available to help perfect every detail. And so your nuptials are just right, each wedding package can be tailored to suit exactly what you want and make your mood board come to life. For those who can’t bring themselves to leave after just one day (be warned: it will happen), there are 40 onsite rooms available, ranging from suites with balconies to rooms with garden views.
