This year’s 6th annual Byron Bay Wedding Fair gave guests a closer look at both the incredible diversity of wedding venues on offer across Byron Bay’s hinterland as well as the vendors bringing world class events in the region to life.

And with its’ pristine coastlines, lush hinterland freshness and laid back vibes, it’s little wonder the Byron Bay region is a favourite location for many couples to tie the knot.

With a setting like this and over 60 renowned wedding suppliers and vendors, this year’s Byron Bay Wedding Fair showcased a wide variety of sought after specialities in the most beautiful way.

In true Byron Bay Wedding Fair form, the weekend-long affair saw a flawless collection of diverse wedding styles and setups displayed, supplying couples with an incredible amount of inspiration, no matter their personal tastes and styles.

Guests were also afforded the chance to meet and connect with a handpicked bunch of the industry’s best vendors‘ – the perfect experience for anyone looking to tick off vital wedding planning elements.

Vendors and suppliers were stationed over two main venues, Fig Tree Restaurant and Byron View Farm. Another eleven venues threw their doors open to guests for viewings, many of which had been styled to perfection by The Wedding Shed to give the feel of a perfectly planned wedding taking place.

For couples in love with the idea of a Byron wedding, this annual event has long been a must on the list. Providing an exciting opportunity to explore the vast possibilities when planning your wedding, we loved seeing the diversity on offer at this year’s instalment of creative wedding inspo.

The task of gathering inspiration for your big day is a big one so perusing local vendors, exceptional venues and the latest wedding trends all over one huge weekend is every engaged couple’s paradise.

This year’s Byron Bay Wedding Fair drew a crowd larger than ever before as guests swooned over real-life styled wedding setups and decorative installations as well as meeting with musicians, photographers, celebrants, hair stylists, makeup artists, cake designers and a whole array of other local vendors.

    Forget Me Not

    Forget Me Not Weddings is the ultimate country destination situated in the Byron Bay hinterland, 10 minutes from Byron Bay and 5 minutes to boutique Bangalow.

    On a scenic hundred acre working cattle farm, it is very private and tranquil. Overlooking a large lake with water lilies and a little row boat beside an old wooden jetty. Surrounded by prizewinning gardens and rainforest plantings. Turn a corner and find another secret spot, relax and listen to the running water of the natural little waterfalls amongst the rainforest.

    Choices of ceremony spots, maybe overlooking the water or under the shade of the trees perhaps in front of the private outdoor chapel?

    There is a large level grassed area to have your tipi’s or marquee. The site can comfortably accommodate 300 guests. A toilet block with rustic exterior and 5 star interior is provided. The farm with cattle, horses and the post and rail fence in the background frames the tipi’s which overlook the gardens and water, such a gorgeous view. As night falls, the atmosphere changes with all the lights reflecting onto the water. A magical place.

    For the smaller wedding there is an undercover deck beside the homestead pool. This caters for about 36 seated or 50 standing guests and is a spectacular setting for canapés.

    Our accommodation is an ideal place for your wedding party to get ready. It is also a special place to relax, reflect and enjoy after your special day. Beautifully furnished with period pieces. Air-conditioned bedroom with a comfortable iron bed. The accommodation includes an amazing western-styled saloon bar with billiards table, pinball machine and arcade system. Contains a separate bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. There is a swimming pool, undercover deck and BBQ area, even an outdoor fire pit to keep the night warm and cosy. Sleeps 2-4 with one queen size bed and an extra double bed if required.

    Forget Me Not Farm is a truly beautiful country location and is both private and spectacular. This is the ideal place for your destination wedding.

    I would love to be able to share it for your special day.

    Verandahs

    Choosing your wedding venue will be the most important decision you will make to begin planning your special day. Therefore a number of important factors have to be considered to ensure the day is perfect.

    You have to consider whether the venue is functional for your style of wedding. Will it accommodate your caterers and their equipment? Can it provide for the unpredictable elements Mother Nature throws at us? Will your guests be relaxed and comfortable throughout the day and into the evening?

    Verandahs have considered all of the above and provide several beautiful locations around the property to set the stage for your day. There are ample shaded areas in the gardens for the warmer months and flat level grass areas for ceremony seating. There are big wide verandahs to mingle on during the night or seat your guests for a feast! For those wedding days where the sun has refused to shine, we have the verandahs as your romantic wet weather option with 360 degree see through pull down blinds to give protection from the elements all year round or can simply add another dimension and transition the mood from afternoon to evening entertaining.

    The huge undercover carport accommodates the caterer’s needs with ample power points, lighting and access to running water.

    Verandahs Studio House is the perfect place for the bride and her maids to relax and get ready. The Studio House is far enough away from the wedding activity for your privacy but still close enough to feel the excitement as your day comes together and your guests start arriving.

    The main king bedroom is a beautiful backdrop for your first photos! No need to leave the property for that perfect photo shoot. Verandahs have that covered as well.

    Whilst the Bridal photo shoot is in progress your guests can mingle in gardens and sport their talent in a variety of lawn games, or simply relax and watch the sunset.

    We have it covered at Verandahs, leaving no surprises except for the ones on your guest’s faces as they arrive at your chosen venue!

    This is our promise to you…
