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.
We had the most amazing experience with Leonda by the Yarra, from booking in our wedding, to menu tasting and finally making our dream come true. Everything was smooth sailing, even with a bit of rain. The food was exceptional, the drinks kept flowing and the boat departure was a perfect end to the night
A beautiful location to have a wedding. The colours of the sun setting on the River made for warm lighting and there were many photo opportunities. The reception was intimate and framed by floor to ceiling windows, which gave a stunning outlook. Staff were attentive, responsive, flexible and professional.
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.
Thank you so much for your review and for your kind words, Monika - it was our absolute honour to host your dream day at Leonda By The Yarra! We love what we do, and we’re glad that it shows - we’re simply thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your day as much as we did. The love and joy that you and Paul radiated, surrounded by such a fun gathering of family and friends, filled every corner of our venue with happiness! We hope that your years ahead are filled with lasting joy together as husband and wife.
Leonda by the Yarra was a beautiful venue. We had a wonderful wedding coordinator, Celeste, and she made sure our day was perfect. All dealings we had with Leonda were great and we had no issues what so ever. The food was incredible, especially the seafood stand which got raving reviews during canapes. Highly recommend!
A fantastic experience! We saw 5 venues and then decided on Leonda. We had a few coordinators along the way but we were accommodated for. They had great attention to detail that we hadn't thought about. They did a complimentary for us and it was a great night. We were so looked after and the venue is stunning! We got incredible photos! We also left on the boat at the end of the night which as a beautiful surprise for our guests.
There will never be enough words to express our thanks and gratitude to Courtney, our even coordinator, and the team at Leonda for hosting our wedding reception. From the moment we contacted Leonda, we knew this was the venue for us. So much love, care, and commitment was made into making our wedding a night we will never forget. I cannot fault a thing.
Thank you so much on behalf of my husband and I for making our wedding day that extra bit special and one we will remember for a lifetime and a day.
The staff at Leonda were so professional and friendly from the first enquiry all the way through to after the wedding! They were accommodating and quick to reply to emails. Despite having a change in wedding coordinator staff at the time, Leonda was still able to make sure our wedding day was not affected and able to run smoothly. Special mention to Libby and Courtney who are so easy-going and were there for our every need. The Leonda team really are one of the best in the business!
Amazing! They are so good and I cant fault their service. They deliver a high quality service from the beginning and all through the day. Nothing was too much trouble and the coordinator was so supportive. My husband and I were so happy with the venue! We fell in love as soon as we saw the venue.
Leonda by the Yarra are outstanding! We had the most amazing experience with the team here from the first enquiry right through to the very end of our wedding reception. Jemma was outstanding and really listened and helped us to achieve everything we wanted for our ceremony in the courtyard right through til the last guest had left. 11/10 would highly recommend!
Working with the team at Leonda was an absolute pleasure. Nothing was ever too hard and they were extremely accomodating throuhgout the planning of our wedding. The ballroom looked amazing on the night of our wedding and the food was absolutley delicious. Thank you for creating our dream wedding. A big thank your to our planner Jemma for her great work.
Leonda by the Yarra was the most perfect place for my husband and I to have our reception. We had our reception in the garden room which was beautifully refurbished at the end of last year. The service and attention to detail was on point but the food was outstanding! My guests, husband and were all really impressed and amazed with the delicious food. From the moment we arrived to the moment we made out departure the whole night ran smoothly and on time. Thank you Leonda by the yarra for an unforgettable night.
The team at Leonda were amazing from day one...we could not have chosen a better venue! They were so professional, thought of everything and ensured our wedding day and food was amazing and all the staff were so friendly. Our guests were more than impressed and that was thanks the the Leonda team! Thank you for making our day perfect and special!
We had the reception in the Garden Room. Everything from day dot to the very end was very well handled. They were very understanding with menu changes, due to religion. They were really good with my Mother-In-Law who is sick, they made her feel really comfortable and she felt special. Service and food was amazing, all guests said it was the best wedding they had been too.
Leonda was fantastic on the big day. The event staff were all very professional and proactive. Venue looked great and food quality was outstanding! Pre-event coordination was could have been more active/facilitative. Overall, would recommend as wedding venue.
Thank you so much for the review Laura! We love getting feedback from our clients and we ensure that your thoughts will be passed on! We are so glad that your special day ran smoothly! Lots of love, The Leonda team :)
The staff at Leonda by the Yarra were outstanding from the first time we saw the venue, right up until our reception. The organisation of our reception was simple, efficient and clear and fun thanks to their level of dedication and their experience in the industry.
Since our wedding we have had many guests comment on the quality of the food (AMAZING!) and the wonderful and attentive service given to each table on the night.
Big shout out to our Wedding Co-ordinator Jemma Halls for all of her work in the lead up, and to Tom who managed our reception on the night. Thanks so much for your hard work guys!
Leonda by the Yarra exude elegance, class, and quality, and are the best choice in Melbourne wedding venues!
Jacinta! Thank you so much for the amazing review. We are so glad we made your special day so amazing! We will pass on your happy comments to the team as we love getting positive feedback. Lots of love, The Leonda team :)
We had our ceremony in the Garden Room at Leona By the Yarra. The staff were friendly and so proffessional! They ensured our night ran smoothly and to schedule. They even gave me some bandaids for my battered feet.
The food is incredible, its up there with the best food I've ever been served at a wedding.
It's right on the Yarra which is lovely and at night they uplight all the tress which just looks beautiful.
No regrets having my wedding there.
Thank you so much for the lovely words Jozica! We are so glad your special day was everything you wished for! We love being on the Yarra too! It's such an amazing backdrop for any event. Lots of love, The Leonda team :)
