We had an outdoor wedding in the gazebo, which was set up beautifully. The grounds are spectacular for photos, with special touches everywhere. The reception was handled perfectly, and everyone loved it. Perfect venue, amazing staff, fantastic food, beautiful decor, and so much attention to detail. Could not be happier!

We had our wedding in December of 2015. We had both our ceremony and Reception at Ballara using the beautiful chapel for the ceremony. Ballara was the perfect venue for our wedding. The event managers and all the staff at Ballara were extremely helpful in the lead up to our wedding, nothing was too much trouble and on the wedding day, Ballara were faultless. Their attention to detail and professionalism made our wedding day one to remember. The venue itself is extremely well maintained allowing for beautiful wedding pictures and all the meals were beautifully presented and tasted even better. We could not recommend Ballara Receptions enough as a wedding venue. Thank you to all the staff at Ballara, particularly Fiona our event manager, for making our day so memorable.

From the first day we visited Ballara, we felt supported and looked after. Amanda and all the team ensured our day was perfect. Their attention to detail and flexibility with our needs was amazing. The gorgeous garden area with multiple areas for photos and beautiful reception room made our wedding day memorable and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you for helping us create such wonderful memories that we will treasure forever.
