We would like to whole heartedly thank you and the team for the support, service and overall outstanding quality of the event. The room looked amazing - the food was incredible. We've had nothing but compliments for weeks from all of our guests! It definitely won't be a night that we will ever forget. Thank you so much for working with us and making it a truly magical night.

To start, all we can truly say is W O W. We have had many guests advising us that the food, service, and facilities of the Plaza Ballroom made for the best wedding they have ever attended. From the first contact with Lauren, we knew we were in good hands. Lauren made the Plaza Ballroom the ONLY choice and we were so happy to lock it in. The food at the Plaza was remarkable, our families raved about the incredible food and service at the event itself. We cannot recommend Marriner Group highly enough.
Nadia & Maleck, January 2021
First I just need to say this is the most elegant and beautiful venue in the whole of Melbourne. Lauren was the most down to earth, helpful and caring person to deal with; she made the whole process super easy and fun. On the day of the wedding the venue looked like an absolute dream and all the staff on the night were sensational. My husband and I are so beyond grateful to the entire team at Plaza Ballroom, you honestly made us have the most magical and memorable night of our lives.
Angie & Luke, January 2021
Firstly, WOW! You have left us speechless. From the moment we stepped foot through the doors of Plaza for the very first time all the way through to AFTER our special day! The team were all fantastic and full of joy, our guests absolutely loved the dining experience and so did we! Overall, we had the most incredible wedding night and it wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing team at the Plaza Ballroom. Wishing we could go back and do it all again!
Stacey & Rabih, July 2021
We will never forget our wedding night thanks to the staff at the Plaza Ballroom, they were so attentive and helpful it truly made our planning that much easier and our wedding night unbelievably unforgettable. This is the most perfect venue for a wedding! It is gorgeous and requires very minimal decorating (i.e. flowers). So, it may cost more per head but it is worth it when the food is that of a 5-star restaurant and the decor is that of something in a European fairytale. PERFECTION!
