Why we love Studley Park Boathouse
Rustic bushland meets old-school glam at Studley Park Boathouse. With views over the Yarra River and a beautifully restored restaurant, the Boathouse is a dream venue for couples coveting a rural-inspired wedding, smack-bang in the suburbs (hello convenience!)
Couples can exchange vows under the soaring English elm trees before moving to the restaurant’s glassed-in veranda for the reception. The main dining room has capacity for a seated do of 74 guests. If it’s a casual atmosphere you're after, make for the Café, which offers an outdoor balcony lined with market umbrellas and an indoor seating area. The Café has room for 70 seated guests or 130 cocktail style.
For couples with an adventurous side, take to the water in one of the Boathouse’s rowboats, canoes or kayaks for a post-ceremony paddle – not to mention some unique wedding images. If you’d prefer to keep your feet on dry land and let your guests take the oars, they can test their rowing skills while you and your photographer take a photo tour around the property.
