The Mornington Peninsula has and is one of the most popular destinations for Weddings with Brides and Grooms travelling from all over Victoria as well interstate and of course around the world to get married on our Beaches and in our Gardens.
Beach Wedding Locations:
To get married on a public beach on the Morningon Peninsula you will need to apply for a council permit with the Mornington Peninsula Council which can be done online or by completng the application which can be downloaded of the council’s website. The cost of a wedding permit is approx $60.00 and covers for a 3hour ceremony time.
A Wedding Permit will stipulate the conditions on what you can and can’t have as part of your wedding ceremony such as maxiumum amount of chairs you can have, no confetti or rose petals , structures to be weighted down and not pegged and any other conditions that they wish to apply to the permit. You are best to read the terms and conditions of the permit and anything you may wish to have as part of your wedding cermeony to liaise and get permission with the council. Always get anything that is not part of the normal permit to be added or given in writing so that should anything arise that you have this to protect yourself. As Wedding Hire Company / Decorator we also request a copy so we have this on the day for our records as well as yours should the council stop us and ask for confirmation that we have the relevant paperwork
