“Everything you want and need in a wedding venue, amazing staff, amazing venue and amazing food! We had our wedding at Encore and couldn’t speak more highly of it. We have received so many compliments from our guests on how beautiful the venue was and the food especially, I was too busy mingling to eat any food which I am so disappointed as it was amazing at the tasting! Our event coordinator was an absolute joy to deal with and responded to all my questions and requests promptly. The venue itself is a beautiful setting with a beachfront terrace to top it off. Definitely recommend!”

FAQ

We understand that making a decision on your preferred venue can take a little time and you may often want to consult with family and friends. With this in mind we offer our potential clients a tentative booking for 7 days once they have been to view the venue. This essentially places your name on the date but is not a booking. Once the 7 days has expired your name is removed from the date. Encore St Kilda Beach reserves the right to take a confirmed booking over any tentative booking.  We will try our best to contact you to offer you the date but unfortunately until a booking is confirmed and deposit paid the booking is not confirmed. 

All you need to do is notify us in writing. We will then issue you with a contract to complete and a deposit invoice for 20% of your minimum spend; this amount can be paid by cash, credit card, EFT or direct deposit. You have a maximum of 7 days to make this payment and submit the completed confirmation form.

All our event spaces have minimum spends which are priced according to the date, time and number of guests. A minimum spend is the minimum amount to be met on food and beverage to reserve the space. The per head cost is determined by what you choose to offer your guests.

Encore is licensed until 1am - however most of our client's enjoy 5 - 6 hour events commencing between 6pm and 7pm and concluding between 11pm and 12:30am. We have found this is the perfect time for everyone to be fully present and to enjoy your special day with you.

We have three curated beverage package offerings here at Encore, featuring different ways to enjoy your beverage selections during your wedding experience. These packages range from simple beer and wine selections, to a variety of different wine and beer selections, and also the option to include standard or premium spirits in your celebration. Any couple including an unlimited spirit offering is welcome to bring up to two complimentary BYO bottles of wine or spirit of their choice to be served from behind the bar on the day. If there is something you would like to include that isn't featured in our beverage packages, you can speak with your coordinator to explore whether we can source and include it in your offering for you. Alternatively, if you do have a cultural request, we'd love to chat this through with you.

There are 420 car spaces available within the St Kilda Sea Baths Complex. Two complimentary prepaid car passes are provided per booking. Please note these are not reserved parking. Additional pre-paid passes can be arranged. 10 days notice is required if more than 10 pre-paid parking passes are needed.

Absolutely, we aim to provide suitable options for all our guests. We do however need adequate time to accommodate special requests and therefore all dietary requirements must be confirmed no later than 10 working days prior to the event date.

Yes, we have a range of options to hold your ceremony onsite – it is a very special location with shimmering water backdrops and views across the bay and to the City. Please speak to one of our event team professionals about these options.

Amy and the Encore team were beyond incredible in bringing our special day to life. The food deserves 10 stars, the staff (specifically Ed and Amelia) made sure everything ran smoothly and that we actually took the time to enjoy the day ourselves! I’d 1000% recommend them as a wedding venue, they took so much pressure off by knowing exactly what to do and helping us every step of the way, especially when there was already so much going on, it really does make things so much easier!

March 2024

From the moment we visited Encore during one of there wedding expo, they have been FANTASTIC! The expo made everything really easy for us and a no brainer. The venue is absolutely stunning and made our dream wedding come true. Amy, Kate, Nicole, Jessica where all absolutely great in helping us plan the event, provided us with a great portal in which we could have all of our information centralised and i cannot express how grateful we are for all of there hard work and coordination. We didnt have a wedding planner but with this great team we didnt need one as they are super organised - think of every little detail and made sure everything ran smoothly. They went above and beyond and it worked really well with all of our suppliers ensuring that on the day things were setup according to the floor plans and helped run the night so well. The venue is absolutely stunning, so well positioned by the beach and at night created the best ambiance we could ask for. Thank you to everyone at Encore for making our wedding day so memorable and stunning. Appreciate you all!

March 2024

Encore St Kilda Beach in Melbourne hosted the most wonderful, picturesque wedding we could ever have hoped for. With panoramic bay views and a wonderful and grand terrace, the setting was simply breathtaking. Our guests were swept away by the glorious sunset, a perfect venue for a beachside summer wedding. From start to finish, the team at Encore exceeded our expectations with their attention to detail and exceptional service. The venue's elegant decor and versatile spaces cater to any wedding style or size. The organsing process was seamless with our planner Niamh taking the time to make us feel comfortable and keeping us on track. The team had multiple suggestions from decor to run sheets which was extremely helpful. The food was divine, with all our guests raving about the generous servings and delicious options. What truly set Encore apart was the warmth and hospitality of the staff, making our day feel truly special. From the event staff to the serving staff, everyone was willing to assist us in making our night one to truly remember. Thank you, Encore, for creating memories that will last a lifetime.

April 2024

Encore were brilliant in the lead up to the big day and especially on it. The coordination was beyond organised and you have someone there to hold your hand the entire way. For a bride and groom wanting a beautiful venue without the need to fill it with all of the bells and whistles - look no further. The venue itself is stunning and the inclusions are more than enough to make your day special. Right on the boardwalk, water at your feet, palm trees a walk away, fairy lights, beautiful foodand amazing staff. They helped organise the entire day and allowed us to feel at ease with the entire process which ensure we were able to enjoy our day. Could not recommened it anymore if we tried.

Wet weather plans

What are all possible wet weather plans/ideas we should consider for a spring wedding? I feel it rains a lot in spring, but we really want to have a spring wedding.

Encore St Kilda Beach

Here at Encore, we give all our couples the opportunity to upgrade to a rooftop ceremony from October - April. The ceremony's final location is an on the day decision we make based on the weather (wind, heat and and rain). If we are looking at a rooftop ceremony, the wet weather back up option is our beautiful dancefloor, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Port Phillip Bay. Here, you have stabilized climate control and are protected from the elements, whilst still enjoying the beautiful view of the beach. If we are unable to proceed with the rooftop, the rooftop upgrade is refunded to you post event.
