The Daylesford & Macedon Ranges region is uniquely set up to host weddings. This includes the quality, availability, location and capacity levels of our many accommodation options, our food & wine resources and a wide variety of locations for ceremonies and receptions.

We welcome same sex ceremonies and are prepared for future same sex marriage.

Our region offers a vast range of wedding suppliers including florists, photographers, wedding planners, wedding cakes and of course make-up, hair and wellness.

Our wedding website will inspire, educate and inform our audience about how our region will make their special day perfect.

Focusing on a wedding audience, we leverage from existing investments and promote our uniqueness to the targeted audience of lifestyle leaders – Brides to be!

Romsey Revitalisation RRBATA

Romsey Business and Tourism Association Inc (RRBATA), the Macedon Ranges Shire Council and the Victorian State Government have just confirmed that a $550,000 town project to stimulate business growth, attract more visitors and create employment has been realised.

The Victorian Minister for Regional Development Jaala Pulford announced at the Romsey Hub that the government was contributing $400,000 to the Macedon Ranges Shire Council’s $150,000 grant.

District MP Mary-Anne Thomas, Macedon Ranges Shire mayor Jennifer Anderson and Jenny Stillman (RRBATA President) along with many Streetscape project members were in attendance.

This has been a real team effort " a true partnership" stated Jenny Stillman. The Streetscape project has involved local community groups, the Shire Council and its members to come to fruition after two years of hard work based on the study of the Jerilderie township three years ago by members of RRBATA.

The upgrade to the Main Street ROMSEY (known as the Streetscape Project) will involve new lighting, landscaping, new signage, street furniture, safer pedestrian crossings and improved amenities for visitors to the township.

Works will commence later in the year and the State Government anticipates six full time jobs to be created for the construction phase of the Streetscape.

The hard work of RRBATA Inc committee (Wendie McLaughlin, Ged McLaughlin, Dr Greg Powell and Benny Dyer) led by Jenny Stillman (President) with input from Romsey locals and many community groups is to be commended.
