From the moment we booked at Leonda the staff were all so helpful and accomodating when creating our special day!


A very high professional standard from all staff. They took care of everything for us.


The entire process with Leonda has been exceptional. The staff have been kind and patient and made every effort on the day to make our wedding a dream.


Extremely accomodating even with the many changes we had to make as our event date drew near - food was amazing and service was absolutely impeccable. The venue looked beautiful and really allowed us to make the space our own to reflect who we are as people. The chippery we added on had many options and all were nicely seasoned and crispy - coming from two people who LOVE their chips. Could not recommend more !!
