Why we love Encore St Kilda Beach
Views of come-hither ocean and stretches of white-blonde sand? Check. Modern interiors and plenty of space? Double check. Encore St Kilda Beach ticks all the boxes for a beach-meets-contemporary wedding. On one of Melbourne’s most famous beaches, this venue makes for a dreamy setting to host both your ceremony and reception (and who doesn’t love a one-stop wedding destination?).
There’s no need to stress about space at Encore St Kilda Beach; the venue can accommodate events ranging from OTT celebrations to an intimate gathering of just your nearest and dearest. The flexible floor plan allows Encore St Kilda Beach to cater perfectly to what you and your fiancée want. If you want to party like it’s 1999 and have a guest list as long as your veil, the venue can host a reception for 300 seated guests or 700 for a cocktail affair – so you can invite your second cousin’s boyfriend AND that neighbour who you borrowed sugar from that one time.
To make sure your big day is on point, an events coordinator works with you during the planning process. Encore is also part of the St Kilda Venues group, so couples who get hitched here will also have access to its neighbours, Republica and Captain Baxter, which can (and definitely should) be used for pre-dinner drinks and cocktails. And with menus boasting dishes including slow-cooked lamb belly, cured ocean trout, chicken roulade and mini brioche doughnuts, your guests won’t be heading home hungry.
