Reviews from our happy couples

Leonda by the Yarra is the best wedding venue. In the time that we have been dealing with the team nothing was too hard or too much trouble. The day went off like clock work and everything was perfect. Our wedding Coordinator Jemma Halls was a absolute pleasure to deal with. Will have no hesitation in recommending Leonda to any bride.

Leonda by the Yarra is a stunning venue. Nothing was too hard or painful when planning the finer details of our wedding with Jemma. She was totally accommodating to all of our requests and the night ran smoothly with Tayla there to help us. Highly recommend this venue. Such professionalism shown by all the staff and a beautiful high quality venue. The food is also amazing!

Leonda is hands down the most beautiful reception I have ever been to. So when we set a date for our wedding, I knew exactly where I wanted to get married! Kylie was our wedding planner, she was awesome, very very helpful. We had a big wedding in the ballroom and everything was set up and presented absolutely perfectly. Leonda’s time management is spot on. They made sure everything ran smoothly and as it was supposed to. The food was also very delicious with lots of yummy options to choose from, my favourite.. the Mushroom Gnocchi! I am yet to visit Leonda and thank everybody for their amazing service.

Beautiful venue! We were in the larger room and it’s very stunning with the big mirror wall. We held our ceremony in the adjacent bar which was also stunning. The Leonda staff are very professional and efficient. Very helpful and always happy to answer any questions!

We had our reception at the Ballroom at Leonda. Tom was the Operations Manager for our wedding and he was amazing, going above and beyond to make sure we had a great night – which we did! All of our guests mentioned how great the food and service was as well. Given it was a 43 degree day it cannot have been easy for the staff so thanks to everyone who was working the night of our wedding! We will recommend Leonda to everyone for their special day also 🙂

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.

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!

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.
