Amarti translated from Italian means ‘To love you’.

Step into Amarti at the heritage-listed Cowwarr Butter Factory, a European-inspired wedding and events venue full of character and old-world charm. Built in 1917 with architecture based on a French chateau, it is the perfect location for a wedding that feels like you have arrived in Provence or Tuscany surrounded by the beautiful landscape of country Gippsland, just over two hours’ drive from Melbourne’s CBD.

An Italian family-owned and operated venue, with a real Nonna, which includes authentic Italian cuisine and wood-fired pizza oven! The Italian culture means you will be sure to eat and enjoy your time. Amarti boasts picturesque grounds surrounding an established pond, the ideal location for a garden ceremony or outdoor reception. The main hall with its charming conservatory entrance, original exposed concrete walls, high ceilings and chandeliers throughout imported from France, Italy and Portugal.

The Bridal Suite welcomes you to enjoy all the moments in preparation for your wedding day – light-filled, romantic soft furnishings and a bathroom perfect for your pre-wedding photos, then leading out to a balcony nestled amongst the old golden elm trees. It feels like you are transported to a scene out of Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet. The walled courtyard takes in the 1897 chimney and boiler, as well as a stately peppercorn tree filled with fairy lights come nightfall, making it the perfect location for a dancefloor.
