Stephanie & David | Fig Tree

Stephanie and David were married under a rustic floral arbour overlooking Byron Bay, at the iconic Fig Tree Restaurant venue. The day was captured perfectly by Daniel Ridgley Hewitt. A few words from the happy bride below.

“We had the best day at the Fig Tree for our wedding! It was everything and so much more than we hoped it would be. It was the perfect destination for our friends and family from all over the world to congregate and celebrate with us. It is incredibly special and a unique moment in time when you have everyone whom you both love and care for in the world in one place. We couldn’t take the smiles off our faces all day and night!

It may sound like a cliche but our day was perfect for us, every detail was taken care of by Byron Bay Weddings and all of the vendors that we had chosen were AMAZING!

My favourite part of the day had to be when I saw my husband-to-be standing at the end of aisle, I couldn’t wait to get to him :)”

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.
