Cape Cottages – Private Property Perfection

 

When we happened across Cape Cottages we knew right away it was the ultimate private property for a bride and groom to celebrate their wedding day. Boasting the most spectacular views, Cape Cottages is the perfect place for a marquee wedding and with onsite accommodation and the township of Apollo Bay close by, it’s a gorgeous getaway.


We sat down with Cape Cottages event manager Maddy to understand why this property is such a unique location to celebrate a wedding day as well as what Cape Cottages can offer a bride and groom.

 

 

WEDDINGS

Cape Cottages is a blank canvas best suited to the creative and nature loving type. The property is open and spacious and boasts 8 acres of natural beauty with spectacular views of both the ocean and surrounding hills. Stunning by day or night it’s a magical space to enjoy in the lead up to your big day as well as enjoying some relaxation afterwards.

What sets Cape Cottages apart is that you really can put your own spin on your wedding day. There are no restrictions when it comes to the style of celebration you wish to host. Cape Cottages sets the scene for weddings both small and intimate or grand and luxurious!

 

 

The space is available leading up to your wedding so you can get creative.
