Embracing Intimacy: The Beauty of Smaller Weddings and Maximising Your Space

In a world often swept up in grandeur and extravagance, there’s a quiet elegance to smaller weddings that speaks volumes. Intimate celebrations, with their focus on close connections and meaningful moments, offer a unique charm. From budget-friendly benefits to the cozy atmosphere they create, smaller weddings hold a special place in the hearts of many couples.

Encore St Kilda is Melbourne’s number 1 beachfront wedding venue. Operable walls within this incredible wedding reception venue, can separate our main room into a space that is perfect for weddings under 120 guests. Importantly, your beachfront wedding will retain incredible views, overlooking St Kilda Beach and Port Phillip Bay and has dedicated outside beachfront areas, perfect for French champagne or cocktails as the sunsets over Melbourne. 

If you’re looking to hold an intimate reception that focuses on the sense of closeness and connection among guests, then don’t let our capacity numbers scare you! Our completely movable, floor-to-ceiling walls offer couples greater control over their wedding environment, allowing for customisable layouts and configurations tailored to your unique vision.

Half-the-room doesn’t mean half-the-fun! To make the most of a smaller space, our professional wedding planners can assist you to employ clever design tactics to maximise both comfort and style. Embrace the coziness of the beachfront wedding venue by creating intimate seating arrangements that encourage conversation and connection. Consider incorporating multifunctional elements, such as versatile furniture and creative lighting, to optimise every inch of space. A few lounges in front of the fire, a gossip corner next to the dancefloor; you have access to all of Encore’s available furniture, so get creative!

Soft candlelight, delicate florals, and elegant drapery can all work together to elevate the atmosphere and infuse the space with romance. By focusing on quality over quantity, couples can create a visually stunning environment that leaves a lasting impression on their guests. Intimate weddings also allow you to get the best wedding venue pricing.
