The Mornington Peninsula has long been an ideal location for weddings and, now the word has spread, it has become one of the most popular destinations to tie the knot.
Every style of venue is here, spectacular gardens, picturesque wineries, scenic golf courses, country houses, beachside ceremonies, unique hotels, marquees for hire and more, catering for hundreds of guests or small intimate gatherings.
Contributing to the day are an abundance of highly professional wedding suppliers, all located here, eager to arrange your ceremony, dress and pamper you, drive you, feed you, entertain you, make your day spectacular and then capture the memories as photos or video.
Using local suppliers has great benefits with photographers who know the prime locations; hair and makeup at your fingertips; drivers who know the route; stylists and entertainers who know the venues; caterers, cake artists and florists who have delivered there before; bridal and menswear with elegant or casual styles.
Everything required for a magical day is here – if you know where to find it, and so Mornington Peninsula Weddings was born. This group of local professional wedding suppliers was created a decade ago to help couples find everything they require. MPW is now supported by the shire and is recognised as the key association representing the local wedding industry.
Since 2014 MPW has presented an annual Wedding Expo and seen it grow in popularity, with 2016 being spoken about as the best ever staged on the Peninsula. Mark the date in your calendar for this year’s MPW Expo on Sunday, June 4, 2017 at Mornington Racing Club. Obligatory registration for brides and grooms will open for this event on Monday, March 20, 2017. Check MPW’s website (peninsulaweddings.com.au) and follow MPW on Facebook and Instagram.
