    When looking for a wedding reception venue, we wanted somewhere that was modern, simple, elegant and timeless. Leonda by the Yarra most definitely delivered. The Garden Room where we had our wedding reception can be defined by one word: elegant. We loved how scaled back the room was, and that our colours (green, purple and cream) seemed to “pop”, due to the room’s cream and black décor. The best thing about the décor at Leonda by the Yarra is that there is a plethora of ways that you can choose to decorate the room, in accordance to your taste, budget and style of wedding. The decoration packages that Leonda offers (chair covers, sash, candelabra) are elegant and tasteful, and can be added to depending on how you want your room to be decorated. We would definitely recommend Leonda as a perfect venue for a modern couple, wanting a timeless reception venue.

    There is nothing negative that I could say about the service by the staff at Leonda by the Yarra. We got a “taste” of how skilled the waiting staff were at the Menu Tasting. The waiters are extremely attentive, they presented very well, and they were professional at all times. They always ensured that the wine bottles on the table were full, that the water pitcher was cold and refreshing, and that the food was brought out swiftly and in an organized manner. The food could have been fantastic and the room could have looked splendid, but without skilled service, all of the positives would have been overlooked. Luckily, Leonda delivered with staff that went out of their way to attend to us and our guests.

    Thank you, Leonda by the Yarra!! You made our day perfect!
