Ballara offers two packages for cocktail wedding receptions, the Sapphire Cocktail Package is a more informal grazing idea and the Crystal Cocktail Package offers a little more formality still enabling guests to wander and chat. Both set at our gorgeous wedding venue on the steps of the Yarra Valley, 30 minutes from the Melbourne city centre.

The Sapphire Cocktail Package

The Sapphire Cocktail Package provides you with more than just a cocktail party. This package includes completely ‘wandering’ food so that at no point in the night guests have to be seated. This encourages mingling and a party-atmosphere, while providing guests with more than just canapés.

The Crystal Cocktail Package

Meanwhile our Crystal Cocktail Package has been designed to be a blend of a cocktail party and sit-down dinner to ensure that your guests have a substantial meal. The beginning of the function is structured as a cocktail party allowing guests to socialise. Then guests are seated for the main meal – which provides the perfect opportunity for the formalities to take place – such as speeches, cake cutting and bridal waltz as you have a captive audience. Dessert will then be served at a buffet table along with tea and coffee to encourage guests to mingle and dance for the rest of the function.
