Accentuated perfectly by the styling of Victoria Novak’s intricate royal crowns, each signature look at the MUSE by BERTA launch radiated warm hues of gold, bronze and glimmering silver. The finishing touches of embellished heels by Mishey sparkled under traipsing floaty skirting and tulle, highlighting exclusive designs.

Modern day princess pieces by La Sposa, the classic elegance of Demetrios’ bone shades and patterned fabrics alongside timeless gowns by Ella Rosa are some of the exquisite designs you can expect when visiting Raffaele Ciuca. Contrasted with the wistful whimsicality of Maggie Sottero’s designs and Pronovias’ billowing gowns, Raffaele Ciuca is proud to showcase a diverse and hand-picked selection of pieces within their bridal emporium.

Hinterland House

Hinterland House is a beautifully refurbished 1906 mansion hidden just one minute from Bangalow and 10 minutes from Byron Bay. This stunning heritage listed homestead offers uninterrupted hinterland views and is open for weddings and elopements of up to 140 guests.

Sitting on a 20-acre macadamia plantation the homestead boasts vine-covered walls, handcrafted stone masonry, leadlight windows and large wraparound verandahs, creating the ultimate romantic backdrop for your celebration.

Guests are greeted by a winding palm tree-lined driveway as they make their way up to the hilltop wedding venue. The picturesque property offers a variety of ceremony locations and lush manicured lawns for outdoor receptions.

Those looking for onsite accommodation can choose to stay in the sprawling homestead and its two adjoining cottages. Hinterland House can sleep up to 18 guests with a total of eight bedrooms, four bathrooms and two fully equipped kitchens spread across the home.

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.

There are numerous locations for ceremonies that take in the expansive view & setting and we have created a flat gravelled area perfect for clear marquees, tipis and Sperry Tents. 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.
