Byron Bay Surf Club

You can’t get much closer to the beach than this. The Byron Bay Surf Club is situated right on Main Beach in the heart of Byron Bay. Host your ceremony and enjoy canapés upon the venue’s spacious deck with mesmerising ocean views. As the evening progresses, make use of the private event space inside for a formal sit-down dinner and an evening of dancing.

The Byron Bay Surf Club ticks a lot of boxes on the things to consider when booking a venue; convenient location, ocean views, on-site catering facilities, a late curfew and wet-weather friendly… just to name a few.

This is one of the only beachfront venues in Byron Bay that hosts weddings with dates available all year round. Featuring a large private event space and spacious deck separate from the club itself, the Surf Club can easily be styled to give you the look and feel you desire.

Beachside Dojo

Open in October 2014 this architecturally designed space reflects a white, crisp relaxed Hampton’s style feel – the ultimate Manly lifestyle. Similar aesthetics can also be seen at our sister venue Watsons Bay Hotel (part of the Sydney Collective) owned & operated by Fraser Short.

‘Dojo’ meaning ‘meeting place’ in Japanese is the quintessential beach side location for a special occasion. The dominant east facing space has views through the famous pine trees and sweeping views of Sydney’s iconic Manly Beach from the outdoor terraces.

Capturing romantic sunrises, the warm summer sun throughout the day and ultimate sunsets, the Beachside Dojo can play host to an exceptional and memorable event that is sure to impress your guests.

The space can hold intimate weddings of 50 or lavish affairs of 200.

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.
