Riva St Kilda is one of Melbourne’s most sophisticated waterfront wedding venues with everything you need for your perfect wedding day.

Imagine making your bridal entrance by boat, arriving through the luxury St Kilda Marina to your private wedding ceremony at one of two stunning, waterfront locations at Riva. Once you say I do, you can move inside to enjoy your celebration in our gorgeous, contemporary wedding reception venue.

The Marina Room seats 180 reception guests or 150 with space for dance floor or you can host a cocktail party for up to 400 guests. When you need some fresh air, you can simply step outside to enjoy your own private courtyard by the St Kilda Marina.

The wedding photo opportunities? You won’t find many wedding locations in Melbourne which offer you a gorgeous bay view, a stunning city skyline and a luxury boat marina for your wedding photos – all in the one unique location.

Don’t forget your guests! While you’re getting your wedding photos taken, your guests can enjoy the view from our bay side lounge bar. The lounge bar is licensed until 3am so it’s also the perfect place to continue the party.

Riva also has a range of smaller function spaces that are just perfect for your birthday party, engagement party or any special event.

Emma and the team at Riva Elwood were outstanding in arranging our wedding ceremony and reception. Riva was just a perfect venue for a beach wedding. The back drop for the ceremony to the gorgeous reception. Emma was a pleasure to work with, she was so organised and helpful.

The Riva was amazing, we couldn't have asked for more of the setting. Palm trees and beach views, the sunset was to die for. Emma the wedding events manager was an absolute delight to work with and the staff were friendly. And i cant leave out the beautiful food, we had the feasting plates in the private dining area and marquee room and they were delicious. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
