The Love Train

Puffing Billy Kahla Webb

There is a special moment when your wedding begins. The moment when guests hear the first note of music and turn to welcome the bridal party, that moment when all the planning unfolds to bring two people together forever. Imagine if that first note of music was instead the cheerful sound of a train whistle! And walking up the aisle means travelling to your ceremony in an iconic train and alighting on an historic platform. The love train, with all the right stops for your big day, is the much-loved Puffing Billy Railway.

For those looking for a distinctive wedding that gives every guest a unique experience to remember, the opportunity to share your ceremony on the train or at the station is full of unforgettable moments.

Seeped in childhood memories, a Puffing Billy wedding is an elegant response to those wanting ‘something old and something new’ that draws on the natural beauty of the Dandenong Ranges and provides a stunning ‘built-in’ theme for photos. The spectacular lush forests and fern gullies that surround one of Australia’s oldest and best-preserved heritage steam railways makes for a truly authentic wedding setting.

“Puffing Billing is a delightful wedding transport you can charter to get you and your guests to your venue, and there are several options to choose from for those wanting a wedding reception along the railway line corridor.”

Choose from two reception venues. The Menzies Creek Museum holds some of Australia’s rarest and most unique railway related artefacts and will come alive as a rustic wedding reception space set to your requirements. There is also the Nobelius Heritage Packing Shed in Emerald, a beautifully restored early twentieth century building that provides the ideal intimate and rustic wedding venue, with an open fire place to keep you warm and cosy in winter. The option is yours to choose from inhouse catering or call in your favourite caterer and realise your dream wedding.

Smaller weddings may also consider an ‘all aboard wedding dinner’ on the train. The Puffing Billy events co-ordinator will be delighted to help you plan your day, your way. From the first stop to the last, love is the destination on Puffing Billy!
