WEDDINGS

Lincoln of Toorak

James Giapitzoglou

We both had the BEST night of our lives at your venue! I can’t begin to describe in words how incredible it all felt all throughout the night. I genuinely felt that the night itself ran so smoothly without a hitch from start to finish and I honestly could not fault a thing… from the exceptional service by all staff, to the delicious food, to the presentation and set-up of the venue (it looked breathtaking). We have received nothing but wonderful, positive feedback from all our friends and family who attended the night. Both Tanvi and Kate were so amazing! Andrea and myself have said that to each other and so many other people when the topic of wedding planning comes up in conversation.

At Lincoln of Toorak, we believe in tailoring the wedding to the individual couple. We understand the importance of tradition and have a wealth of experience in creating weddings across many cultures and traditions. Of course, weddings are all about celebrating in the moment, so the fun contemporary elements (from photo booths to dry ice on the dance floor!) are seamlessly woven with the time-honoured customs to create a wedding that is as unique as the couple themselves.
We pride ourselves on our service and our menu. Our team of brilliant chefs offer you scrumptious course after course, and can even tailor dishes to suit your palate. We also look after each and every dietary requirement – because not all guests are lucky enough to be able to enjoy everything, we cater to everyone’s needs and create memorable meals that will have all of your guests talking for years after your magical day!

You will be in good hands with our experienced event managers who will take the time to work with you to create your dream wedding. Our staff look after every aspect in the planning and on the day to ensure you have the best night of your lives! Your bridal waiter will care for everyone in the bridal party, make sure you get time to enjoy the personal individual meal choices, have pre-poured champagne ready for speeches, and even pack up all your little memories on the day from bridal place cards, your cake knife and champagne flutes, your wedding cake, and organise for all the presents to be neatly placed in your parents car for safe keeping at the end of the night! !

Lincoln of Toorak’s wait staff have been trained internally through a systematic and comprehensive process to ensure the highest level of service and attention to detail. We don’t treat just the bride and groom as the special guests, we treat everyone as if it was their special day to ensure each and every guest enjoys themselves to the fullest. Our admin team and supervisors will go through every detail leading up to your dream wedding and coordinate it with your MC on the night so all organisational aspects will run according to plan and you can focus on the most important thing – having fun at your wedding!

Kate Anderson

Kate and Tanvi were fantastic at helping me organise a function. They made everything super easy and stress free. The food was delicious and the staff that were working on the night were so helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend going here.

Lucia

Dear Kate, Tanvi, Lauren and your team, I just want to thank you for making Saturday evening’s Head of the River dinner such a seamless, logistical success. Despite a late start due to the senior rowers being late, and two guests who had to be accommodated at the last minute on a new table due to people not sitting where they were allocated, the evening went smoothly. Thanks you so much of your professionalism and assistance in both the lead up to the event and on the night. You made it all so easy for us. The room looked fabulous. And the food was lovely.

Alysa

I just wanted to say a big thank you for organising last nights event for us. I have received such positive feedback from my squad members about how successful the evening was. The venue looked fantastic, the food was great and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. There were instructors attending our function that have been to many graduations and commented on how last nights was one of the best they had been to. I would not hesitate in recommending your venue to others. Thanks again for making our celebrations so memorable.

Vanessa

Thank you guys so much, our night was perfect and the level of service provided was beyond expectation, Stuart and I would definitely recommend the Lincoln of Toorak for future functions.

Faisal

We have had a number of guests comment on how good the food was. Also, it appears some were offered seconds – which is over and above what we would have expected. Thank you! Working with you has been a joy! Thank you very much for everything! PS: Tanvi you’re a saint ?

Savanna

Thank you so much for an amazing night. Yourself and the staff did an amazing job and everyone was very happy with the food and service.

How much will my wedding cost?

Its one of the big questions that you want answered first. It’s a big expense, and you need to have all the details, otherwise how can you possibly make the best decision?

Most venues won’t put their pricing on their website. They do this so they can withhold firm prices until they’ve had the opportunity to sell and get the biggest sale.

We don’t work this way. We aim to be upfront and clear with our pricing. We’re not the cheapest wedding venue in Melbourne, but we are the best value. If we tried to provide the cheapest weddings around, you can be guaranteed the quality would have to be low. Instead, we’re passionate about providing quality, personalised weddings at a fair price, with heaps of extra included value to make your day magical.

Each wedding at Lincoln of Toorak is as unique as the couple and so we aim to tailor every quote to the individual wedding. We understand that it is important to have an idea of costs to begin with, so we have put together this pricing guide to help you understand the costs involved

Our all-inclusive wedding service costs between $100 and $190 per head. We like to be very flexible in the services we offer so you can have exactly what you want for your wedding. The range in price comes down to how many guests are invited and how you choose to celebrate.

To get a customised quote for your wedding, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to find a time to show you around the venue and discuss your needs and dreams for your wedding.

Here is an overview of how these costs are broken down.
