We’re coming up to wedding season so feel it’s timely to host a wedding venue open day on Sunday 24 November from 10am to 2pm. This is a celebration of love and the excitement that comes with planning a wedding.
We think it’s important for wedding couples to be given the chance to have a look at potential wedding venues before securing the one that’s right for them.
Take a walk throughout our entire wedding venue with our complimentary canapes and a glass of bubbles in hand.
The Markovina staff will be available to answer questions and we’d love to show you around and listen to your wedding day ideas.
The staff are so lovely and incredibly helpful, the venue itself is absolutely stunning and the food is incredible. Many of our guests said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to.
It truly was everything I had dreamed of and more. Jessica & James Penman
A chance to picture your wedding day at Markovina Vineyard Estate
Our wedding venue open day will showcase all that Markovina Vineyard Estate has to offer. Over the years, we have fine-tuned the Markovina wedding experience, ensuring our couples that they’ll have everything they need for their dream wedding in one stunning location.
Guests are welcome to walk the full grounds, checking out our five ceremony locations and the reception area.
We encourage guests to take their time and see all five of our ceremony locations.
Keep in mind that we only host one wedding per day. This way, we can dedicate our full resources to each wedding, ensuring it is perfect in every way.
Our beautiful big chestnut tree has leaves from November to June and provides an idyllic backdrop for a wedding ceremony. This spacious location has plenty of room for large guest numbers and is surrounded by vines and trees within the estate gardens.
Pebble Beach is ideal for smaller, more intimate weddings. Couples can recite their vows overlooking the Estate’s largest pond, surrounded by large trees and manicured gardens.
Whether you’ve chosen to have an indoor wedding or the weather is not quite what you expected on your wedding day, our covered courtyard is a stunning ceremony location all year round. The stone fireplace provides a classic ceremony backdrop and the large glass sliding doors showcase our expansive gardens outside.
Two Kauri Trees
Our two kauri trees perfectly frame a wedding ceremony, towering above the surrounding gardens. The majestic kauri trees add a truly special touch to this unique location.
Wine Barrel Waterfall
Located among the shade of olive trees, the Wine Barrel Waterfall location is popular for hot summer weddings. We call it the Wine Barrel Waterfall because the original barrel from our winery sits just behind the altar. A sentimental and serene ceremony location.
You are welcome to check out our reception space as well and we will be showcasing the range of features we provide at each wedding reception. These include:
We offer an array of dancefloor lighting features included in each wedding package. From fairy lights on the ceiling to lasers lighting, our lighting systems add a special touch to a wedding reception. We also offer a haze and bubble machine for a bit of fun at your reception.
Music and sound
We offer an in-house music system as part of each wedding package. This includes a portable PA and speaker system for the ceremony as well as a full speaker system for your DJ at the reception.
As part of your wedding package, we set up the reception tables with linen table cloths, linen napkins, glassware and crockery. You’re welcome to leave it the way we set it up or add your own personal touch to the table decor. Feel free to choose from our large collection of vases, wooden boxes, lanterns, tealight candle holders and much more. There is no additional charge for this.
Food and beverage
We take great pride in our food and beverage service. All wedding packages include canapes, a main meal and dessert. We offer a great selection of food throughout the day, using seasonal produce in our menus.
We had the most amazing day, and could not recommend Markovina more. If you want the wedding of your dreams, Markovina is the place for you. – Renee & Jabin Leung Choi
Markovina is the place to be on Sunday 24 November
We all lead busy lives these days and finding the time to visit wedding venues is often easier said than done. When it all becomes too overwhelming, we end up choosing a venue on a whim.
Of all the tasks on your wedding planning to-do list, choosing the wedding venue is the first and most important.
We love sharing in the joy of newly-engaged couples. If you’re currently looking for a wedding venue, join us on Sunday 24 November for our open day. We would love to meet you.
