The Rutherglen Convent is perfect for couples looking for freedom and flexibility for a wedding filled with character, beauty and charm. The combination of the enchanting presence of the building and natural beauty of the surrounding area will provide a magical setting for your special day.
Steeped in history and character, The Rutherglen Convent was built in 1927 and is surrounded by the delightful wine-making township of Rutherglen. Located 3 hours from Melbourne this unique, family-owned property not only provides picturesque views of the local wineries but boasts truly spectacular sunsets.
You are only limited by your imagination as you plan your big day with exclusive access to the entire convent building and grounds. Hold an unforgettable ceremony in the thoughtfully-restored Chapel with beautifully intricate lead-light windows, or perhaps in the landscaped front gardens under the shade of the giant oak tree. The ground floor original classroom basking in local history and natural light can host your cocktail-style reception or a more intimate sit-down affair, or for a more relaxed celebration the courtyard with fire-pit, rock seating and open green space may better suit your style, accommodating up to 100 guests. The Rutherglen Convent offers couples the opportunity to create a day that tells your own love story.
Included in our wedding packages are on-site accommodation which comprises 11 stylish rooms that could easily accommodate your wedding party or special guests. The large fully-restored first floor bathroom will also provide ample space for the wedding party to relax and get ready together for your special day if desired.
