Rippon Lea House & Garden

Rippon Lea House & Gardens is the last of Australia’s great privately owned 19th century suburban estates. Designed and built 1868 in the Romanesque style, the mansion is surrounded by a beautifully maintained original Victorian pleasure garden which is of international significance. The spacious mansion retains much of the lavish Victorian decoration from its original owners, the Sargood family, but today reflects the elegance of the era ‘Between the Wars’ when the Jones family played host to Melbourne’s most fashionable society.

Rippon Lea House & Gardens is one of several National Trust listed properties within Victoria. Its magnificent gardens provide several fantastic garden wedding locations as well as a perfect setting for a Sunday picnic.

This unique and divine garden wedding ceremony venue in Melbourne is the perfect location for a couple who want privacy on their special day. The property allows only one wedding at a time, therefore ensuring that you have exclusive use of the space for your wedding.

Weddings of Distinction is privileged to be Rippon Lea’s recommended supplier of garden wedding ceremony decorations. In addition, we can provide decoration for receptions held in the Ballroom. Weddings in the Ballroom can be booked through Peter Rowland.

Weddings of Distinction can assist you with all of your wedding hire and decor requirements, such as Americana, white wooden or Tiffany chairs, market umbrellas, aisle carpets/runners, arches & arbours, signing tables and silk/artificial florals.

If you are interested in hosting a drinks package following your ceremony, please have a chat to one of our consultants.
