Some of our incredible Wedding Stories

“Ash and I are so grateful to have come across the wonderful Shelley and the stunning venue at Olinda Yarra. From the moment we met Shelley and set foot in the barn, Ash and I knew Olinda Yarra would be the perfect place to get married, and it proved to be the best decision we made.
Through lockdowns, postponements and numerous changes, Shelley, Rob and Vanessa kept us sane with their caring, attentive and understanding nature. Nothing was ever a problem and they made the entire experience more unforgettable than we could have imagined.
Thank you so much Shelley, Rob and Vanessa, we could not recommend you highly enough!”

“Olinda Yarra Estate is absolutely stunning and was the perfect place to host our wedding! Olinda Yarra was the first wedding venue we had checked out, and we instantly knew it was where we were going to get married. We fell in love with its charm and stunning grounds – from the beautiful big marquee and barn, to the magnificent scenery and homestead. All the little touches too – festoon/ fairy lights, vintage couches, florals and chandeliers, cubby bar, plus cute animals roaming around. We loved that the venue had everything we needed, but we were also able to fully customise our wedding (food trucks are amazing here).
Shelley, the owner, is probably the nicest person you will ever meet, and she made the whole experience easy and stress-free. Shelley is extremely helpful and keen to give anything a go, so when we told her what we wanted our wedding to look like, she said “Yep, let’s do it!” and made sure our day was perfect. We will definitely be visiting again to stay in the gorgeous cottage, and hopefully host another event here in the future. Highly recommend booking a venue tour so you can fall in love with it too!”

“Olinda Yarra Estate was the most perfect venue to have our special day! Shelly was incredible in seeing my dream and helping to make it come true, especially when I requested that I wanted my horse part of the wedding, and boy did we pull that off!
We were always greeted with kindness and enthusiasm, and no idea we had was ever shot down. I can’t have imagined having our wedding to be hosted anywhere else and both of us would 100% do our wedding over again just to be in awe of this gorgeous venue!
Thank you for everything you and your team did, Shelly! X”

I cannot thank Shelley and the team enough for making our day so special. I had a big vision for the day with lots of different moving parts and they helped it all come together!
The venue is seriously magical! From the romantic barn, indoor/outdoor reception area, beautiful lights, animals and great photos spots it was everything me and my partner dreamed of and more.
Cannot recommend this location enough”

“Getting married at Olinda Yarra was such a perfect decision!
Such a gorgeous location, Shelley and Rob are the loveliest people and there is not a single thing to fault. We loved the animals, the barn, the marquee and the beautiful historic houses.
We were provided so much help, advice and support leading up to the wedding and Shelley is truly a wonderful person to have helped bring our perfect wedding to life. Would do it all over again!”

“My wife and I couldn’t say enough good things about Shelley, Vanessa and the entire team at Olinda Yarra. From the very first tour to our (rescheduled) wedding they were incredible. Nothing was too hard or difficult for Shelley and the team – with tricky covid restrictions they made everything seem doable, were fantastic with their communication and genuinely cared about us and our wedding.
The venue itself is just stunning. The owners have actually spent a lot of money on little things like faux flowers, extending an already-impressive marquee and the ceremony space – all so their customers can save on not having to decorate.
Our photos looked stunning – all of our guests raved about how beautiful and fun the venue was and Shelley couldn’t have been more helpful when it came to getting access in the days leading in and after, as well as access to the beautiful cottage to provide a quiet space for our baby-guests.
We just can’t recommend this venue highly enough for a wedding, or any function that’s really important to you. Hope we get to go back one day!”
