Venue Testimonials

As soon as we visited The Ivory Elsternwick we fell in love! We had Claire as our coordinator - She was super lovely to deal with & was with us throughout the planning stages. The Ivory has so many special little touches such as the grand piano, fireplace & outside greenery wall. The stand out for us was the dramatic blush bud-lit ballroom ceiling that gave our wedding the romantic vibe we were after.

We want to thank Claire who helped us achieve our vision and our special day come to light. It was the most magical day! After one year, we still can't believe that our wedding day went so smoothly, people are still talking about how amazing the food was and the place was.
