Questions and Answers


The Ivory Elsternwick

Arguably the most talked about feature of the entire venue; the dramatic bud-lit ceiling of The Ivory ballroom.  You will be captured by an overwhelming feeling of elegance & romance as the staff draw back the curtain to reveal the space before you step inside.

For those expecting to invite between 100 and 400 guests, our bud-lit ballroom is a beautiful spot to celebrate.  Seating between 100-350 guests, a cocktail-style capacity of 100 to 400 & with the added flexibility to hold a stand-alone cocktail event for up to 150 in the beautifully renovated foyer -you are spoilt for choice.  Regardless of what you select, the entire venue is yours exclusively for the duration of your event.

Guest tables surround a large central dance floor enabling guests a full view no matter where they sit as well as the chance to dance to their hearts content.  The long central staging with white backdrop & backing lights can be easily changed to suit any colour theme.  It aims to create a feature which can be personalised to suit your theme or by simply using the inclusive backing lighting, it will highlight the head table or entertainment without the need for additional decor.

Rose-Garden Terrace

The Ivory Elsternwick

Be led through it’s picture-perfect white arbours to the rose-garden courtyard, the lush-green backdrop to the The Ivory’s classic white Georgian facade & open terrace.


Iceberg roses surround the garden of manicured hedges and Whsteria vines which have crept their way up, twirling around the picture-perfect arbours.  Both the Georgian façade & the white arbours create the perfect wedding ceremony backdrop and photo opportunities, simplifying your decisions on what to do and where to go.  And our team love assisting you with styling ideas to add to the outdoor terrace space & tying in your theme throughout the venue.


The Ivory Elsternwick

The striking foyer at The Ivory , Elsternwick is perfect for pre-dinner drinks or as a stand alone space for private cocktail parties.

Guests arrive through the white arbours and rose-garden terrace, through the grand double doors & into the main foyer.  Classically elegant features such as the dark hard-wood flooring, crown moulding & baby grand piano are mixed with modern contemporary features such as the centrally-featured modern chandelier & beautiful fluted-timber bar with its copper-rimmed pendants above.

The large foyer opens on to a comfortable seated space that guests adore and the fireplace provides a central feature all year round as well as the cosy atmosphere needed for the perfect winter event.

A feature within itself, a 15 metre black with light gold detailing can then be drawn back to reveal arguably the most talked about feature of the entire venue; the dramatic bud-lit ceiling ballroom & feature-dark dance floor

Bridal Suite & Dressing Room

The Ivory Elsternwick

A personal bridal suite with dressing room, bathroom and fireplace, is a rare luxury and awaits you when you arrive here at The Ivory Elsternwick.  It really is the little details that add to your day and this is absolutely one of them!

The bridal suite is a comfortable spot for you, your bridal party and/or family to have a drink, something to eat; as well as as separate space for the girls to re-apply make-up & importantly, for you all to re-cap on the day so far before joining your guests.

We will have drinks waiting for you as you arrive and shortly after deliver handmade canapes for you to devour.  It is the perfect place for a quiet moment to yourselves – a space for you to come & go as you please.  It offers a separate bathroom for you & your bridal party and a separate change room for all those brides who need more than one dress on your wedding day (another essential item, right ladies?)

As soon as we visited The Ivory Elsternwick we fell in love! We had Claire as our coordinator - She was super lovely to deal with & was with us throughout the planning stages. The Ivory has so many special little touches such as the grand piano, fireplace & outside greenery wall. The stand out for us was the dramatic blush bud-lit ballroom ceiling that gave our wedding the romantic vibe we were after. We received so much positive feedback from our guests that the food was outstanding and they loved the cocktails on the night. The rose garden terrace was a stunning backdrop for our sunset photos and photographed beautifully for our sparkler send off! Thank you The Ivory for making our night so memorable xx Jess & James

The Ivory Elsternwick  

Thank you so much for the amazing feedback Jess! It was such a pleasure to host your big day. We will be sure to pass on your feedback to Claire and the team who will be thrilled to hear it! So glad to hear you loved the food and cocktails too, you were the first to taste our new chicken dish which has proven to be a big winner among our guests. Wishing you and James all of the best for your future together and congratulations again !

We want to thank Claire who helped us achieve our vision and our special day come to light. It was the most magical day! After one year, we still can't believe that our wedding day went so smoothly, people are still talking about how amazing the food was and the place was. Peter & Katerini xx

They took the stress and complication out of wedding planning. James was such a delight to deal with and our wedding took place without a hitch. They helped us create a wedding from a blank canvas venue and it was a perfect night.!

Thank you, Jenny, for your glowing review! It was such a pleasure working with you both. Congratulations again!

Stunning venue! Great service! Amazing food! We originally booked prior to the Covid outbreak and therefore had to move our date more than once. The Ivory was very accomodating and Claire was great to deal with. The guests commented repeatedly on how good the food was and plenty of it. I highly recommend having events here, we had an amazing wedding.
