I know that ils is used for masculine or mixed masculine and feminine groups and elles is used for feminine groups. But what if there are more feminine than masculine objects such as a group of one man and ten women? Would it then be acceptable to use 'elles' to refer to that group or would I still have to use ils even if only thing is masculine?
No, you use ils with every mixed group, so a single grammatically male object or subject would suffice.
