We can not recommend Ballara Receptions in Eltham enough. Jan, Amanda and the team were caring, professional and extremely accommodating to our needs. The venue is beautiful, the food delicious and the whole atmosphere made our special day the best of our lives. Thank you Ballara!

Ballara was amazing! It's a perfect venue for a wedding. The day went smoothly because of how organised the Ballara team was in the months prior to the day. The guests were very complimentary of the food and staff. The Ballara team made sure everybody was looked after and comfortable, that dietary requirements were met and that the children had a fun evening.

Ballara Receptions were amazing to work with! Rhiannon helped us get a great package and start planning our big day over the year, while Jan our wedding co-ordinator was super helpful on the day keeping us on schedule and helping with all of our needs. The Chapel and Grounds were absolutely stunning and the Reception Hall was perfect. All of the guests so far have raved about the food and the venue, cannot recommend highly enough!

Ballara was the only venue we visited. As soon as we walked through the door we knew it was the venue for us. We absolutely loved the chapel and the grounds are beautiful. Nothing was too much trouble in the lead up to our wedding and all emails were answered promptly. Jan and all other staff were very professional on the day. All dietary requirements were catered for. Even for canapés those guests were given their own plate. My sister is vegan and was very impressed with the food particularly dessert as often she isn’t catered for well and she got a very nice cake. Everyone has said how good the venue and food was. Cannot day enough good things about Ballara
