Specials, Combined Packages & Promotional Offers | Hot Air Balloon Weddings
Book Now! The Yarra Valley is one of the most spectacular winery regions in Australia, and one of Australia’s premier ballooning locations. Getting married in a balloon is undoubtedly a unique and memorable way to spend your special day. We have put together a wedding package for those romantics who would like to experience a high flying wedding celebration!!
You will meet before sunrise and be taken to the launch site where your private hot air balloon will be inflated. Once you board, we will take off into the early morning light while you get married flying over the spectacular Yarra Valley.
We then take you back to award-winning Rochford Wines for a beautiful champagne breakfast reception.
You will have the choice of the Pinot Gallery, Barrel Room, or Rochford restaurant to enjoy your delicious breakfast and toast your new marriage
Your reception at Rochford Wines includes venue hire and set up, cake table and signing table, use of the beautiful grounds for your wedding photos, as well as wedding co-ordinator on site.
Champagne breakfast includes fresh fruit basket, selection of cereals and yoghurt. Your choice of one of 4 cooked breakfast options from an a la carte menu, juice, tea and percolated coffee, and a glass of sparkling wine
Additional guests can also join for breakfast afterwards for just $35pp.
As ballooning is a weather dependant activity, Global Ballooning can arrange a back-up ceremony at Rochford Wines should the balloon flight be cancelled due to inclement weather on the morning. The back-up ceremony can be held in the restaurant area, in a private room, or, if the weather is just right, outside in front of the vineyard. This comes at a minimal cost that is only required to be paid if the ceremony takes place. This fee is paid directly to Rochford Wines on the morning of the ceremony.
We are happy for you to leave the celebrant to us too. We can refer you to Maree Livy, experienced balloon-wedding celebrant, to perform your ceremony in the air! www.mareelivy.com.au. 0409235243
We can offer hotel pick-up from selected Yarra Valley accommodation – please check at the time of booking.
To set-up and pack-up the balloon, participation is usually required from passengers to assist in the process. If your wedding group does not want to participate in helping pack-up and set-up the balloon, we can arrange to have an additional crew member on the morning. This is an additional cost of $250.

Trems & Conditions
Safety is our first consideration and we will not fly if conditions are unsuitable. We will do our best closer to the date to try and get you to fly on or around your chosen date, however in some circumstances this is not always possible. If you are weathered out, you may re-book your flight, or alternatively we can arrange a ceremony to be held at Rochford Wines as a back up location should you wish to be married the same day. In the instance that your flight is cancelled due to inclement weather and you require a refund, a cancellation fee of 15% will apply. If you can not re-schedule your flight an alternate option to a refund, which you may like to consider, is to offer each passenger an open dated flight certificate to experience ballooning at a later date in any of our locations in Victoria. We can arrange to have these posted out to all guests. Alternatively, you can use this 15% fee amount as credit towards another Global Ballooning flight, package or voucher.
