Balcony Bar & Oyster Co - Honeywed

Set in one of the town’s few remaining heritage buildings, Balcony Bar & Oyster Co. is practically a Byron institution, with most of us having enjoyed more than our fair share of sunset cocktails, lavish breakfasts and people watching on its’ iconic balcony over the years. And with its enviable position, stylish beach house vibes and plethora of delicious dining (and drinking) options, it’s easy to see why!

Recently changing hands to the powerful Sydney Collective, who’ve established a reputable portfolio of venues such as Beachside Dojo and Watson’s Bay Hotel, the Balcony Bar & Oyster Co. has undergone some seriously stylish renovations, a complete menu overhaul and the introduction of some very impressive event options which has secured Balcony Bar & Oyster Co. as an exciting new hot spot for Byron Bay weddings and associated events such as rehearsal dinners, hens and bucks events and even recovery brunches…

Making use of locally sourced ingredients and sustainable produce is true to Executive Chef Connolly’s ethos that the less you do with food, the better it tastes. Which you’ll quickly agree with once you’ve experienced their fresh selection of seafood. Because really, is it even possible to beat oysters and cocktails on a warm afternoon?

Byron View Farm

An original white cottage creates the central focus and with wrap around verandah, it’s the perfect location to host cocktails, canapés and intimate long lunches.

Mingle amongst the landscaped gardens while taking in the picturesque views across Byron Bay and its iconic lighthouse to the east and the golden sunsets over rolling hills to the west.

A noon ceremony and long reception lunch make the most of this venue’s magical panorama. Picture the end to your special day reclining back to your boutique accommodation, privy to the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Complete privacy and serenity, whilst just a 15-minute drive to the town of Byron Bay.

Barefoot at Broken Head

At the end of a single stretch of sand, your guests look to the north to the most easterly point of Australia – the Byron Bay Lighthouse. There is salt in the air, eucalypts crowded thick over the hills, and waves rolling in from the point.

After the ceremony, the guests walk a minute over the sand dunes through a simple back gate to reveal the minimal Balinese-inspired masterpiece that is Barefoot at Broken Head.

The huge central living pavilion opens up through accordion doors to the tropical garden and huge decks in which are set four other buildings, where the families and couples that are staying can have perfect privacy when they desire, and huge common areas when they would like to commune.

There are five luxury bedrooms and a separate kitchen and dining area overlooking the pools where you can watch the kids frolic in the 30cm deep reflection pool or dive deep into the 20m lap pool, both set in golden sandstone.

In the days before and after your reception have relatives or friends to stay, ride the bikes along the beach at low tide, or drive 10 minutes into town to enjoy Byron’s restaurants. With the sound of the sea from your bed and a world-class point break a minute from your room – this is the ultimate Australian beach house.

Co-ordinators love weddings at Barefoot at Broken Head because it’s all here – no need to organise a professional kitchen, bathrooms, electricity, decorations, cool room, marquees, public liability insurance, gate attendant, rubbish removal or indoor/outdoor ceremony options. All this is included in the reception fee.
