Sails on the Bay, Wedding venue in Elwood

is a modern bride and groom’s dream beach wedding venue. Featuring world-class Australian cuisine, local and international wines, the venue is located right on Elwood Foreshore. The private events room and restaurant boast clean lines, light and bright spaces with floor to ceiling windows.

With uninterrupted views of Port Philip Bay, the scene is fresh and beautiful by day, stunning by night. This seascape creates a dramatic photographic backdrop for your wedding reception and ceremony photography.

Our Passion8 professional photographers

The Passion8 professional photographers are expert at capturing intimate moments in natural light, whether it’s a clear sunny beach day, or a stormy, dramatic sky with turbulent ocean shades. And with the beach itself literally one small step off the terrace, it’s easy to picture yourself delving your toes in the sand and sea, while your wedding photographer captures a newlywed’s kiss before a romantic sunset. Can you feel the sea breeze caressing your skin? Your veil, an angel taking flight.

If sand in your toes isn’t your thing, the covered terrace is a great option for having the best of both worlds. Large enough to hold your beachside wedding ceremony, you can then utilise the space for pre-dinner drinks, or shelter from inclement weather.

Your bridal party and guests can enjoy a cocktail on the terrace while enjoying the fresh sea air and view, or perhaps a fun frolic in the sand and shallows — another perfect photo opportunity to capture candid shots of a carefree and laughter-filled wedding. Speak to your wedding planner about co-ordinating some beach-themed games for your guests to play on the sand.
