Leonda wins Best Reception Venue

And the winner of Best Reception Venue in Victoria 2012 is…

…Leonda By The Yarra!


We were thrilled to hear our name announced as the winner of the Best Reception Venue award at this year’s ABIA (Australian Bridal Industry Academy) awards night.

Competing against 14 other excellent venues, we took home the award having received an overall rating of 99.67%, the highest in the category. We were also delighted to be nominated as a finalist for the Ceremony Venue and Function Coordinator awards.

Our excitement was intensified as the awards night was held in our own Ballroom for the third year in a row. 327 wedding industry professionals joined us as guests for a great night filled with fun, suspense and entertainment. As the awards were announced guests were served a beautiful 3-course menu, created by our chefs especially for the evening. The warm chocolate fondant dessert served with raspberry salad and double cream proved a winner in itself!

The ABIA Awards are held annually in each state to acknowledge the highest rated suppliers in the bridal industry as voted by brides. Brides and Grooms are invited to rate their best wedding suppliers based on the quality of product, quality of service, value for money and customer service.

The Chairman of ABIA Mr John O’ Meara said “Leonda By The Yarra should be extremely proud of being honoured by Australia’s peak industry body as one of Victoria’s Top wedding suppliers, especially when one considers the level of passion and commitment required to consistently excel in the design of products and services which culminate in the delivery of the brides perfect day.”

We are absolutely delighted to receive this award and would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for us!
