Bespoke Country Weddings…

Mimosa Glen Homestead Cottage and Woolshed was first built back in the early 1880s; the property sits on the McIvor Creek at Tooborac, just an hour’s drive from Melbourne and the gateway to the Heathcote Wine Region.

The venue boasts many options to help you to create your perfect wedding day, your way.

The beautifully renovated Woolshed features a large open-plan function space and surrounding deck, suitable for both small and large weddings, with layout flexibility to suit almost any style.

At Mimosa Glen we maintain a rustic, festive feel to our weddings and work with you to create a style and atmosphere that ensures a truly memorable experience for your celebration; whether it’s a formal wedding for up to 90 or a cocktail function for 150.


You can choose to hold your ceremony overlooking the tranquil McIvor creek, on our wedding rock, or in the beautiful country garden; and guests can enjoy a short stroll from your ceremony, across the surrounding lawns to the Woolshed for your reception – or perhaps an outdoor marque in the warmer months.
 

 

CEREMONY SITES

Mimosa Glen offers a choice of several idyllic ceremony locations that all provide exceptional settings in which to exchange your vows in front of your closest family and friends.

TESTIMONIALS

“Sue,

We would just like to say the biggest thank you for everything you have done for us. The day was absolutely perfect and we are so glad everything worked out the way it did, as Mimosa was just beautiful.You we‘re so easy to work with from the start, helped us so much and we will be forever grateful! It was a privilege to be able to have our wedding there and we are just glad everyone got to see how special it is.”

– Jess, April 2017.

 

“Sue,

Wow. Where do we start? We just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did to help make our wedding day a reality. From the moment we set foot on Mimosa Glen to the moment we left on our wedding night, you went above and beyond to help make our day. No question was ever a hassle for you to answer and your advice was always well thought out and appreciated. It wasn’t long before we started to think of you not as a wedding supplier, but as our friend. And as for the property itself, Mimosa Glen is just simply stunning. The landscape is so beautiful, and the Woolshed was our dream come true. It suited our relaxed country atmosphere perfectly but allowed us put our own individual stamp on the place. We can’t wait to see what other beautiful moments are captured there. We’re so glad we picked Mimosa as the place we could celebrate with our family and friends and will always cherish our memories from there. Words can hardly do this justice, but thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

– Dan and Ash, November 2014.

Thank you for being such a wonderful part of our wedding day.

We truly had the best day and wish we could do it all over again. Mimosa Glen is such a special location and we were so happy to be able to share it with our loved ones. From the moment we stepped onto the property to set up all our stress just melted away and we knew it was going to be absolutely perfect. We really appreciate all your hard work throughout the planning and over the weekend to help make the day run so perfectly. Thanks for everything.

– Calani and Miles, March 2017.
