The best Albury Wodonga Wedding Venues Part 2
A little while ago I wrote a post about some of the amazing Albury Wodonga wedding venues that are on offer for those planning their wedding in the region. I quickly realised as I started writing that post that I would need to write multiple blogs on this topic as there are just so many gorgeous wedding venues in our beautiful area, both in town and the surrounding region. Couples holding their weddings in the Albury Wodonga region truly are spoilt for choice!
My last blog post focused on some of my favourite wedding venues on the outskirts of Albury Wodonga, (which you can read it here). while this blog post mostly looks at Albury Wodonga wedding venues that are mainly in town. Some venues offer both ceremony and reception hire while others offer one or the other.
The Albury Botanic Gardens
If you are familiar with the Albury area you are likely to know the beautiful botanic gardens which are in the middle of town. This is one of my favourite places to take wedding photos or family portraits and it makes a beautiful backdrop for your wedding ceremony.
This location is in the Albury CBD so it is super easy for your wedding guests, both locals and those that have travelled, to get to.
There are many locations to choose from in the gardens for your ceremony's backdrop, allowing you to pick the perfect spot for lighting or shade, depending on when you are holding your wedding (read our tips for the perfect wedding photos here). These locations in the Albury Botanical Gardens cater for both large or small weddings.
Perhaps one of my most favourite things about this location however is that once you say your vows, sign your marriage certificate and get announced as Mr and Mrs, you are ready to take your family photos and wedding portraits.The Albury Botanical Gardens are a gorgeous place to take your wedding photos with plenty of different gardens to provide you with varied and beautiful backdrops.

The Commercial Club Albury
If you hold your wedding in the Albury Botanical Gardens you will then need to find a fabulous venue for your reception where you can eat, drink and dance the night away!
If you're looking for another Albury CBD location, The Commercial Club in Albury is an excellent choice!
It offers a number of function rooms you can hold your reception in and some seriously good food! I can vouch for this as I recently was treated by my beautiful bride and groom, Megan and Lee, to a gorgeous and seriously large entree and main meal - so good! 😍
And of course you have full bar facilities both in your function room and in the main rooms if you need.
The Albury Commercial Club offers a number of rooms to allow for varyings guest numbers.
Sodens Hotel - Stable Bar
If you're after a slightly more rustic, boutique feel for your reception while still keeping the location in the CBD, check out the Stable bar at Sodens Hotel.
The Stable Bar at Sodens Hotel is an awesome and very aesthetically pleasing reception venue for you to party the night away! You have access to a groovy bar and you can opt to have a Finger Food or an A La Carte menu. This location offers a beautiful inside area and a relaxed outdoor space which is particularly lovely on summer nights.

The Thurgoona Country Club
Looking for a Albury Wodonga wedding venue that offers both ceremony and reception space along with beautiful areas for wedding photos? Slightly further out than the first two venues, the Thurgoona Country Club offers both ceremony and reception facilities along with stunning backdrops for wedding photos.
I have photographed a number of weddings here now and always find the service and the venue amazing! I absolutely love taking wedding photos here as there's a number of different locations we can easily move around to while squeezing in some relaxation and a cold drink on the lawn!
The Thurgoona Country Club offer a number of different catering options. I have so far been treated to a beautiful sit-down menu and a lovely buffet style meal.

The Tuileries/De Bortoli
Our only venue outside of Albury Wodonga is on the edge of the Rutherglen CBD and is known as the Tuileries or De Bortoli.
The Tuileries are a gorgeous wedding location in Rutherglen, a small town just outside of Albury Wodonga. It offers lush lawns for lovely ceremonies, plenty of backdrops for photos and a beautiful function room for your reception! To top it off the Tuileries also offer seriously stunning accommodation on site for you and your guests to make the getting to and from your wedding super, super easy!
I was seriously impressed with this gorgeous venue and highly recommend it.
For more information check out The Tuileries wedding web page here.
