Wedding Highlights

Well, for notable highlights of this venue, take it from my expertise as an expert wedding photographer in Melbourne. Here are the three main factors that The Ivory will provide for your special day:

Magical Ballroom

The choice is yours, whether you’re after a formal sit-down dinner or a fancy cocktail-style reception. This unique space is not shy of magic, romance, and ambiance. With gorgeous bud-lit, blush-draped silk and a spacious dancefloor, you and your guests won’t want to leave. 

The most famous feature at Melbourne’s Ivory Elsternwick is the ballroom, where everyone can enjoy a fantastic dance on the dancefloor underneath the dramatic, backlit draped ceiling. The hanging, blush silk glowing above your head provides the perfect fairytale vibe. This classic space perfectly blends simplicity with extravagance. 

The stage lighting system is fully customizable to complement any wedding reception theme you desire. Wishing wells, gift tables, spotlights, and other exquisite details are included in the wedding packages.

Well-Maintained Event Spaces

The gorgeous Rose-Garden Terrace and Foyer should be a priority on your list in The Ivory. You’ll dive into photo opportunities from wisteria-covered pearly white arbors and luscious greenery to picture-perfect iceberg roses. 

If you prefer a classy indoor ceremony or pre-dinner drinks, The Ivory Elsternwick’s sophisticated Foyer is also up for grabs! Complete with a modern grooved-timber bar, stunning copper detailing, a timeless baby grand piano, and gorgeous hardwood floors, and you’ll never go wrong. The Foyer is spacious enough for comfortable seating, a central fireplace, and a cozier atmosphere.

Overall Ambience and Services

If this place does not sound perfect enough, wait until you experience the team’s exceptional service and special, thoughtful touches. Combine with modern and timeless elegance, plus the competent, warm customer service of the Ivory, and you are all set.

Reviews and Feedback

According to Google Reviews, The Ivory Elsternwick has a rating of 4.5 stars. Here’s what their clients say.

Jia: My husband and I were lucky enough to get married at The Ivory in November 2021 just as Covid restrictions were easing after what was a difficult year. After our first visit to the venue we knew this was the one – it has the perfect mix between modern and romantic elegance and the beautiful courtyard was an added bonus as this meant we didn’t have to have the ceremony at a different location to the reception. The Ivory has a generous main reception room with a large dancefloor along with ample space in the foyer allowing for our wonderful vendors such as the photobooth and ice cream cart to serve our guests. Although we opted for our own decor, it was lovely to see the venue hire had a lot of great inclusions as standard. We were also very happy with Jennifer as our co-ordinator who was very helpful and answered our millions of questions and provided comfort and flexibility in a time of uncertainty. Thanks to The Ivory and the team for making our day so memorable and ensuring things ran as smoothly as they did.

Cristyna Saab: We had our wedding at The Ivory back in 2019 before the COVID pandemic. What a beautiful night. Everything was run smoothly and beautifully. Our guests still boast about our wedding until this day, which in fact is what reminded me to put up this google review! I did not feel stressed at all on the night. Everything that had been discussed and that we asked for, was executed perfectly on the night. Thank you to the team at The Ivory Elsternwick ❤️.

Hannah Chan: My husband and I scouted a few reception venues before we finally decided on The Ivory. The venue itself was elegant, simple and classic and was exactly what we were looking for! Shout out to our wedding coordinator, Katie, who helped us along the process of wedding planning as the days came closer and was so patient with us!
