Dreaming of your nuptials by the water? Crystal clear, surf pumping, sea breeze… in the middle of Melbourne? Yep, you read that right. And, we’re almost certain you won’t get this close to the action any where else.

Three Blue Ducks have set up shop at Melbourne’s iconic URBNSURF and we’re also certain this unique venue will knock the socks off your guests. Located next to a two acre surfing lagoon, you can say ‘I do’ right on the shoreline. The waves might be manufactured, but the vibes are the real deal.

Boasting an impressive indoor dining room, mezzanine level with lounge and private bar and an alfresco dining area, get ready to feast on some of Melbourne’s freshest fare. Ceremony options are available on the Deck or the URBNSURF Lawn too.

To celebrate this modern wedding haunt, a passionate group of VIC wedding vendors banded together to create this styled shoot captured by the Ws fave Lovegood Images.

Running with an intimate and romantic theme, vendors including Babylon Flowers, Revel Films, Pete the Celebrant, Eilish Ellen Weddings, Miss Ladybird Cakes, Baby Dolls Makeup Artistry (among others) were responsible for bringing these killer images to life.
