Venue Testimonials

Leonda were amazing and handled everything on our big day. From the start the team were attentive and had so much experience I always felt at ease and confident the wedding would be handled well. I didn’t have to do anything on the day but have fun and choose my food. Thank you all for everything you have done and for allowing us to use your venue.

Dream location, dream dinner and dream staff. Cannot recommend highly enough! Our wedding co-ordinator Celeste was very organised but not pushy, sending me emails that allowed me to respond in my own time, but also answering my sometimes silly questions politely and in a timely fashion. The food was incredible and the portions were well sized. No complaints from hungry guests, or plates sent back barely touched. If you're looking for an all-inclusive venue where you don't need to do much preparation (in terms of venue), and you can show up on the day safe in the knowledge that you won't need to do anything other than enjoy the night you've been planning for ever, this is the place.

We had the most amazing experience with Leonda by the Yarra, from booking in our wedding, to menu tasting and finally making our dream come true. Everything was smooth sailing, even with a bit of rain. The food was exceptional, the drinks kept flowing and the boat departure was a perfect end to the night
