The Scene at The Ivory Elsternwick Melbourne

Tucked away on the charming streets of Elsternwick, less than 30 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD and just a 10-minute drive from Brighton beach, stands the recently refurbished Ivory Elsternwick a modern twist on a classic gem

You’ll be drawn into the venue’s atmosphere of wonder and luxury the second you step through the white arbours and rose garden terrace. The elegant detailing paired with the breathtaking features of the stylish foyer and grand ballroom will turn your wedding celebrations into an unforgettable experience. 

After your ceremony in the rose garden courtyard, you can enjoy canapés and drinks in the foyer, followed by a vibrant reception within the glowing ballroom. A personal bridal suite and dressing room filled with thoughtful details, a warm fireplace, and drinks at the ready are also available for you to enjoy a few quiet moments before returning to your guests. 

Dedicated to bringing your wedding vision to life, The Ivory Elsternwick team will ensure that every detail is taken care of, so you can sit back, relax, and soak up the magical atmosphere. 

The Ivory Elsternwick Melbourne Wedding Ceremonies

For a fairytale-inspired setting for your ceremony, look no further than The Ivory Elsternwick. With multiple styling options and the already-vivacious surroundings, your wedding ceremony won’t be short of character and romance but bursting with photo opportunities. 

The striking white arbours that lead into the lush rose-garden courtyard strung with lights create a stunning backdrop for your ceremony. Against the Georgian-style façade and bright, airy terrace, you’ll say your vows under plenty of natural sunlight and vibrant greenery. While it’s hard not to indulge in the iceberg roses, living green wall, and manicured hedges, the foyer is an excellent choice if you prefer an indoor ceremony. 

With the perfect blend of modernity and old-time charm, the foyer is made up of striking features to give your ceremony a little extra spark. An intricate chandelier hangs above dark hardwood flooring, a baby grand piano, and a distinct fluted-timber bar — the delicate crown mouldings and copper-rimmed pendant lights highlight how tasteful this space is.

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.
