The secret is out at Werribee Mansion… and LENZO was there to unveil it
We love a good corporate launch party just like anyone else, which is why we were super excited when we were asked to style Melbourne’s best-kept secret hideaway at the iconic Werribee Mansion & Spa.
Named after Mary Chirnside, wife of Andrew who, together with his brother Thomas, built the stunning Italian-style mansion, the bar is a collaborative effort by Mansion Hotel & Spa, The Everleigh Bottling Co., and G.H. Mumm.
With the help of Dann Event Hire, Pickawall, Sketch & Etch, Entourage Events, Pro Light and Sound, and Badlands + Co, we channelled 1920’s decadence through the use of blush pink, white marble and rose gold in everything from the bar through to the florals to create an intimate evening for 50 handpicked guests.
Set on an abandoned balcony on the first floor of the Mansion, the space was transformed into an opulent cocktail bar and lounge for those who like to indulge in canapes and G.H. Mumm Champagne while learning about the rich history of Mary and the Chirnside family… but be quick: Mary’s Secret is running from 25 May to 16 June.
Get ready to be swept away to another place and time with Mary’s Secret…
Photographer Madeleine Chiller was there to capture every aesthetic element, which was meticulously overseen by the LENZO team.
We complemented the breathtaking 1920’s architecture of the historic building with Dann Event Hire’s latest furniture collection, as well as Badlands + Co’s gorgeous blush pink and white floral features.

Fresh orchids, peeled roses, and tulips cascaded over the bar in abundance, and large green tropical leaves contrasted perfectly for the backdrop.

Cocktails were served all night in quaint '20s-styled liquor bottles by the skilful hands of The Everleigh Bottling Co., and guests were treated to a beautiful Champagne tower exhibition, which soon turned into a tasting of G.H. Mumm Champagne.
