Dream location, dream dinner and dream staff. Cannot recommend highly enough! Our wedding co-ordinator Celeste was very organised but not pushy, sending me emails that allowed me to respond in my own time, but also answering my sometimes silly questions politely and in a timely fashion. The food was incredible and the portions were well sized. No complaints from hungry guests, or plates sent back barely touched. If you're looking for an all-inclusive venue where you don't need to do much preparation (in terms of venue), and you can show up on the day safe in the knowledge that you won't need to do anything other than enjoy the night you've been planning for ever, this is the place.

Leonda were amazing and handled everything on our big day. From the start the team were attentive and had so much experience I always felt at ease and confident the wedding would be handled well. I didn’t have to do anything on the day but have fun and choose my food. Thank you all for everything you have done and for allowing us to use your venue.

We had our wedding ceremony at the Leonda Courtyard, followed by our reception at the Leonda Ballroom. Each staff member at Leonda was extremely helpful and supportive. Customer service was delivered at the highest quality. The reception itself is beautiful, clean and modern. We received many compliments from guests on how much they liked Leonda, that there was plenty of space, especially for little kids to run around. We also took advantage of the Jetty for wedding photos. Special callout to Courtney, who was our wedding coordinator and managed everything to perfection - thank you. Highly recommend booking with Leonda by the Yarra.

Leonda By the Yarra is a fantastic Venue for a wedding. We recommend asking for Chris - he is worth his weight in gold. Staff are professional, courteous and attentive. Chris allocated to us because our orginal event planner had something booked on the same night of our wedding. We were initially disappointed when this changed occurred in the final weeks of our wedding but it was quickly forgotten when we met Chris who replaced our original event planner. Chris was warm, organized and communicated well with us on the night. Great venue with amazing staff.

Thank you so much for this feedback. We will make sure Chris hears how much you loved him!
