About The Continental Sorrento Wedding Venue
With roots dating back to 1875, The Continental in Sorrento is one of Victoria’s most beloved heritage landmarks. Couples can expect nothing but the best cuisine from Chef Scott Pickett during their stay, which will be accompanied by some of the best views on the peninsula! Time truly does stand still at The Continental in Sorrento.
Why Should You Consider It?
Fantastic food, unique vibes and some of the most incredible interiors available across the Mornington Peninsula. If you’re on the hunt for somewhere a little different, give this venue a chance to impress you and you won’t be disappointed. Some of The Continental Sorrento wedding videography options available to us at this location are truly out of this world.
Aesthetic And Vibes
The Continental Sorrento weddings are some of the most aesthetically stunning events on the peninsula. A lot of that comes from the site’s rich history which can be seen in pretty much every room in the building – none more perhaps than the grand ballroom. With huge chandeliers, limestone walls and giant windows that pour in natural light, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time. That means the Continental Sorrento wedding photography you’ll receive will be timeless and provide memories that will last a lifetime.
Indoor And Outdoor Options
For those who enjoy the ability to customise their wedding to make it as personal as possible, you’ll love the options available to you at The Continental. A sunset terrace (with breathtaking views), a refined gallery space, a timeless ballroom and Halcyon Hall (extending onto the terrace), are all able to be booked for various parts of your wedding day.
Of course, the time of year and weather will play into what your best options are but speak to your wedding manager if you’re unsure. At The Continental in Sorrento, wedding videographers like myself are given the perfect backdrop for timeless and refined video creation.
Accommodation is available to you for your wedding, and it’s absolutely stunning. “Seaside” and “glamour” are two words that their wedding brochure uses, and it sums up the rooms perfectly. You and other hotel guests also have access to the Aurora Spa & Bathhouse, and a pool that overlooks the coast. If your wedding is big enough (over 100) you’ll get free use of the Heritage Suite for one night, and breakfast for two people in the morning.
Two food packages are on offer: Classically Chic ($195pp) and Diamonds Deluxe ($220pp). The latter includes a palate cleanser, handmade chocolates and a choice of dessert platters. Receptions are included in the price, and extras are also available. Beverage packages start at $12pp for 1 hour, with the choice to upgrade to different wines or up to 5 hours.
If you’re looking for a chic, timeless location that offers something a bit different from the surrounding venues on Mornington Peninsula, The Continental in Sorrento might be just what you’re looking for. And if you’re still looking for someone to be The Continental Sorrento wedding photographer for your day, I might be what you’re looking for!
