I would highly recommend this venue for any wedding. The venue speaks for itself but it was the work of the the staff that ensured our wedding was truly amazing. They were professional, organised and helpful throughout the entire process. Could not be happier.

Letizia and her team were absolutely wonderful to deal with and our wedding went off without a hitch. She was honestly one of the most organised and thorough stake holders we dealt with and were thrilled with her service and the service of The Ivanhoe Civic.

The venue is glamourous and our photos there are superb. We had a cocktail-style reception in the Streeton Room with a six-piece band. The food was delicious and they catered for my ridiculous dietary requirements. Kym, Penny and the team at the Centre were a treat, thanks for everything!
