An immense thank-you to the team at Ballara, especially Fiona for everything given we only had 6 months to organise our wedding from the other side of the world! We are indebted to your professionalism, care & flexibility for making our wedding the magical & joyous event that it was.

The service, the attention to detail and the food we had at Ballara for our reception could not be faulted. They made our entire wedding process so simple and enjoyable right from the planning stage through to our incredible wedding night. Being from the Western suburbs many of our family had not heard of Ballara before but everyone said it was more than worth the drive. The night was amazing and the venue we had definitely made it. I am so happy that we celebrated our marriage at such a beautiful venue, which also offered brilliant food and service. They also catered well for the multitude of dietary requirements we had.
