GEELONG’S MOST UNIQUE AND STUNNING SPACE
Exuding a warm and open feel from the moment you arrive, Provenance Wines also has the class and charm to match. Located within a historic 1870s bluestone building, this unique space has been meticulously restored and boasts sweeping cathedral ceilings, wine barrel-lined walls, and polished concrete flooring. The neutral tones have been purposely chosen to give our wedding couples the flexibility to establish their own personality and style on their big day.
Eliminate the need for your guests to travel between your ceremony and reception by hosting both at Provenance Wines; we now offer you a choice of beautiful outdoor and indoor ceremony locations.
ALL YOU NEED IN A WEDDING VENUE
The heritage-listed Paper Mill where Provenance calls home, is nestled in a cliff with picturesque views over Buckley Falls on the Barwon River. They’re lucky to be the closest winery to Geelong, an easy 10 minutes’ drive from Geelong’s CBD and conveniently located just off the Geelong bypass (a 50-minute day trip from Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road).
The Paper Mill estate is a thriving arts and culture precinct and offers an array of unique photographic spots around the grounds, making wedding photography a breeze. The textures and charm of the old buildings, as well as green gardens and natural bush settings allow for a variety of beautiful photography options, all within a short walk from the winery.
The Provenance Wines wedding menu features delicious, locally sourced options designed to impress your guests and leave them completely satisfied.

Packages include cocktail, alternate drop, and the popular share-style menu. Their Head Chef and his dedicated team are passionate about delivering quality and exceptional, fresh, modern-Australia cuisine which has been receiving rave reviews.

WEDDING STYLES THAT SUIT THIS VENUE
In terms of styling, they are fortunate to have such a gorgeous space full of character and textures therefore many of their clients feel like they don’t need a lot of styling beyond their florals. The rustic whitewashed bluestone walls and the grandeur of the sweeping, vaulted ceilings are simply stunning. The polished concrete flooring and warm timber tones of the tabletops and bentwood chairs provide a natural palette for whatever the couples choose.
Provenance offer the option of crisp, white linen, but many couples love the natural timber tabletops. Another lovely feature is the original crossbars of the ceiling lined with fairy lights and the barrels, full of wine, wrapping two sides of the room.
Beautiful natural light floods in from our skylights and numerous windows facing the Barwon River too.
The friendly Provenance event team will set and style the tables as per our couples’ instructions, holding a detailed planning meeting 6 weeks ahead of the wedding to run over all the fine details for the day.
