When looking for the perfect place for their nuptials, many couples envision an elegant and unique venue, complete with a variety of beautiful options that will complement them and whatever style their dream wedding may takes shape in. Set amongst rows of vines and flourishing trees, uniquely situated within the crater of a 20,000-year-old extinct volcano, the elegant Villa Maria Estate fits the bill for a wedding with a difference.

Tie the knot in one of the many stunning ceremony sites. There’s a range of breathtaking areas including under the shade of the swaying willow trees, a private area away from the main building. Or do you want to be elevated? The Top of the Vines ceremony site makes for a beautiful view of the entire vineyard. For a larger guest list say your “I dos” on the spacious Barrel Hall Lawn or hold a ceremony lakeside, for sweeping views over the water.
