From the moment we drove through the gates of Ballara Receptions we knew that this was the place. The gardens were beautiful! The staff were so friendly and welcoming. They went through their whole wedding package with us and we were so impressed with what it included. The staff guided us through every step of the planning; we knew we were in good hands. Jan was our manager for our wedding day and we cannot thank her enough. From the moment I walked down the aisle to the farewell circle she ensured that all went smoothly so that Jarrad and I could enjoy our day. We loved every minute; it was an absolutely perfect day. Thank you Ballara for helping us make our wedding day so special xx

The staff at Ballara receptions are friendly and dedicated to making your wedding day perfect. They were accommodating to our individual needs and nothing was too difficult for them. The food was simply divine and cooked to perfection and the venue itself is simply beautiful with many photo points for lovely photography. Set in the foothills of the Yarra valley we couldn't have been more thrilled for the weather and this beautiful wedding venue on our special day.
