Geelong & The Bellarine's Unique Wedding Experience

We recognise that your wedding is your special day.

Your wedding is your celebration. It’s a day that not only will be etched in your memory eternally but will linger for all your family and friends. Here at Merne, we will help you to create that moment, that moment that never goes away.

Such an occasion is our responsibility to help create your dreams and then to exceed them. Not only achieved by our food, there is no compromise on wines or service standards.

With many years of experience, we pride ourselves on being as flexible as possible to ensure we collaborate in creating the greatest of celebrations.

Overlooking vines and olive groves, Merne at Lighthouse offers amazing panoramic views that provide a stunning backdrop for your special photos. Located only 20 minutes from Geelong, the pristine outlook means our Bellarine Peninsula location is also perfect for your ceremony. (Which is included in the cost of the package.)

Whether it’s your wedding or another special function, the Merne at Lighthouse team would love to assist in creating your perfect event.
