When you meet your partner at the end of the aisle to get married you want to be in a beautiful setting. A space that will signify the beginning of your joining and a new journey unfolding. Leonda By The Yarra offers 3 picturesque spaces to suit anyone’s needs. Two indoor ceremony options and one outdoor option with the gorgeous Yarra River as a backdrop.

Here at Leonda we are extremely flexible and can tailor our space to suit your needs. Whether you want an elegant ceremony in our courtyard followed by a fully catered event in our Garden Room or you simply just want to walk down the Leonda aisle and then move your event elsewhere after, we are here to support and offer you anything and everything to make your special day memorable! After your unique ceremony, your guests can relax and enjoy pre-dinner drinks and canapés while you and loved ones are off taking photos in the exquisite settings.

If you wish to conduct your wedding ceremony at a church or park, Leonda recommends a list of various churches and famous parks such as the Burnley Gardens, Royal Botanic Gardens, Alexandra Gardens or Fitzroy Gardens to hold your ceremony.
