Bishops Palace is a Ballarat wedding venue unlike any other. As one of the city’s oldest and truly magnificent properties, a wedding at the Palace gives you access to some of the most unique indoor and outdoor spaces in Ballarat.

Starting from $5,000 + GST, you can have exclusive use of Bishops Palace, giving you uninhibited access
to the palatial property and four acres of heritage-listed gardens for the duration of your stay.

Arrive at Bishops Palace on the eve of your wedding, and take time to explore the Palace and surrounding gardens, luxuriate in the spa pavilion, or enjoy a glass of bubbles in the library. Pre-wedding nerves will disappear and you will truly be amazed at the serenity surrounding you, knowing that everything is in place for your magical day.

Everything you need
Whether you desire a garden wedding or an indoor event, Bishops Palace has an extensive range
of spaces that can be tailored to your needs.

Indoors, the bridal party and guests can use the six luxurious and romantic suites for overnight accommodation
and dressing areas. Each suite has its own unique ambience, and all have been meticulously renovated to reflect
its 19th-century charm.

Exclusive use also gives you private access to all the Palace’s common rooms, including the stately library
and billiards room, spectacular formal dining room, charming parlour, and luxurious spa pavilion.

Outside, the four acres of gardens provide ample space for an outdoor ceremony or reception.
Guests can also mingle on the expansive balconies and take in the views of the property and Lake Wendouree,
which are particularly beautiful at sunset.

There is no shortage of spectacular location for photos, from the grand staircase, long halls with their 18-foot ceilings and heritage-listed gold stencilled paintwork, carefully styled common areas where no detail has been left to chance, and the beautiful outdoor space.
