Perfect Place: Clear Mountain Lodge Spa and Vineyard


Looking for the perfect wedding reception venue? We quizzed readers Victoria and Matthew on why they chose Clear Mountain Lodge Spa and Vineyard for their reception venue and why they loved it!

What we loved about the venue…

it took our breath away and had everything to offer under one roof. Having guests from overseas, we needed to impress, keep the cost affordable and provide somewhere fabulous to stay all in one venue!

The venue looked amazing when…

the ceremony area was all dressed up. It has some of the best views in Brisbane! One Stop Wedding Shop dressed the area with the most beautiful flowers.

The food was…

delicious and bang on time! The menu offered something for everyone, as well as delighting with taste. I found the cost affordable and the service exceptional, especially from Jessica Holdsworth (event coordinator) and Teresa. I was ver y happy with the end results – the staff couldn’t have done more for us.

Decorating tips?

My theme was vintage lace with a touch of glam. I decorated with lace, white roses and gold, and used Pinterest to collate my ideas. So, keep your theme simple! Plan and prepare in advance.

On the day...

the venue brought up breakfast for the bridesmaids and I, which was very kind. It was an incredibly hot day, so Jess walked me to the ceremony area with my dad and shaded us from the sun with an umbrella. So thoughtful!


The best photo locations around the venue…

were definitely in the ceremony area, though my favourite photographs would have been taken in Clear Mountain’s beautiful vineyards.

Our guests especially enjoyed…

having everything in the one location – they could relax and enjoy the day from the beginning. I know they enjoyed the canapés and Champagne after the ceremony and a boogie on the dance floor.

Three words about the venue?

Just simply breathtaking!

I will always remember…

the best day of my entire life to date. It was so close to perfection thanks to everybody involved.

The accommodation at the venue was great because…

it had the most incredible views, a spa bath for your enjoyment and all the mod cons at your disposal.The rooms were clean, comfortable and air conditioned… which we definitely needed in November!
