Byron Bay Wedding Venues
Are you recently engaged and looking for the best Byron Bay wedding venues? Hi there, I’m Adam and I am a Byron Bay wedding photographer who had photographed a heap of weddings in the lovely seaside town of Byron Bay. I have photographed a lot of weddings over the years and I know what sets an amazing venue apart from an average one.
Byron Bay is a beautiful and very popular coastal town located on the north eastern tip of New South Wales. The Arakwal People are the Traditional Owners of the Byron Bay region. It is about 8 hours from Sydney by car or 2 hours from Brisbane. It is Australia’s most easterly point and where the stunning Cape Byron lighthouse is located. The region is home to celebrities, the rich & famous, beautiful beaches and great shopping & dining. It is also a very busy wedding destination for couples from all over Australia.
Here is my list of the best Byron Bay wedding venues. Some of these venues I have photographed weddings at, and some are on my bucket list of place I would love to photograph. So hopefully you find this helpful.
1. Byron Bay Beach Restaurant
The Bryon Bay Beach restaurant is an excellent destination for your wedding plans. It’s got a long and high-profile history in Byron Bay and offers a broad service range that suits your needs. In addition, its oceanfront location means that you can have the beach-themed wedding party you’ve always desired.
Byron Bay Beach Restaurants began operations as Bryon Beach Café in 2008 by Ben and Belinda Kirkwood. The couple shared a wealth of experience managing various resorts and restaurants in the Caribbean several years prior.

2. Byron View Farm
Byron View Farm is another location you should check out for your wedding plans. Again, the highlight feature is space: the farm is about 40 acres big and has over 30,000 rainforest trees. These give the property a natural feel that you might appreciate as a nature lover.
Furthermore, Byron View Farm exists on an elevated plain and overlooks the mountains, ocean, and surrounding landscape. Views from the farm can be mesmerizing, and when you throw in the full moon nights and sunsets, your wedding at the Byron View Farm can feel truly magical.
Accessibility is not an issue and a massive plus for a destination that prides itself as a “secluded oasis.” You can get to the farm from Byron Bay city in around 10 minutes, so you don’t have to worry about logistics and traffic ease for your wedding.

Address: Byron View, 194 St Helena Rd, McLeods Shoot
3. Deux Belettes
If you must have your wedding in the Byron Bay area, you can hardly do better than using the Deux Belettes events venue. Dubbed the “French House” or “Chateau” in the Bryon Bay hinterlands, Deux Belettes focuses on luxury wedding events and accommodation.
Deux Belettes draws most of its inspiration from classic French farmhouses, which you can tell from its laid-back countryside location characterized by rainforest trees and stone walls. These give you the feeling of luxury and nature blending harmoniously.
On the inside, the luxury guest house feels welcoming and enchanting. You’d find antique furnishing, glistening chandeliers, and classical curtains. These features give you a feeling of the French pre-Revolution era, whether you’re having a retreat or a big wedding.
The guest house began operations in the ’80s in Byron Bay/Ballina area. A family of 4 prepared the land, built the main buildings, and planted over a thousand trees to make their dream farmhouse. They had a climate-friendly ecological plan for the area, which was a significant move at such a time when people don’t talk about environmental protection very much.
Additionally, the founding family upcycled materials to create the rest of the scenery: roof shingles from old fence posts, doors, and window hardware from garage sales from France. Over the subsequent 40 years, all these details came together to give Deux Belettes a distinctly European ambiance.
Weddings at the venue can make you feel like you’re “one with nature,” and you can’t help but feel optimistic about the beautiful journey you’re about to embark on with your significant other.
Address: 2477/104 Victoria Park Rd, Dalwood NSW
4. Fig Tree Restaurant, Byron Bay
You deserve excellent meal service and a pleasant, natural environment for your wedding event. Fig tree restaurant aims to serve you the best on those fronts. Located in Ewingsdale, on a hilltop, the restaurant also provides the serenity and seclusion befitting newly-wedded couples.
Fig Tree Restaurant has a central theme inspired by a century-and-a-half old fig tree. You get to experience lush grapevines and orchards nestled in its sweeping frame. The buildings with their white interiors give a hint of the Mediterranean, which is perfect if that’s the subtle theme you and your hubby seek.
The restaurant started in the early ’80s when Heather and Charly Devlin decided to convert an original farmhouse into a restaurant and serve food they grew and prepared. It was an idea that thrived, with the family sharing the home with visitors who come to eat. However, Che Devlin took the operations to the next level in 2005 when he took over from his parents.
He kept their legacy, and the restaurant grew in popularity over the years. So, you still get to enjoy homemade cuisines from the fig tree orchard and garden.
Overall, Fig Tree Restaurant is a perfect destination if you wish to have your wedding and other events in Byron Bay. It’s got all the right ingredients: lush gardens, a countryside vibe, and a view of the ocean, giving you the relaxed, serene ambiance for your big day.

7. Victoria’s Byron Bay
Victoria’s Byron Bay is a chain of five-star luxury accommodations that’s worth considering for your wedding events. Located in coastal areas such as Wategos and Ewingsdale, each property gives you a unique version of the beachside beauty.
Running a multi-property accommodation is no small feat, especially a highly successful one such as Victoria’s. The business started small when Victoria and Raemon McEwen opened the first property in 1995. They prospered with consistent quality service and took advantage of opportunities as they come.
Initially wanting to settle down in New South Wales and turn their home into a guest house, the McEwen couples found a good deal on a property at Ewingsdale and later at Wategos Beach. They gradually built the brand into something ubiquitous across the Byron Bay area.
So, what would you be getting for your money? If you’re at Victoria’s at Ewingsdale, you will get to enjoy the stately manor on a 4-acre expanse of land. The manicured gardens and ocean views are perfect for your wedding event or an intimate retreat with your sweetheart.

8. Earth House
Earth house is an example of spaces purpose-built for weddings and similar events. It exists in Byron Bay’s central parts, with a 110-acre farmland expanse. Right out of the gate, Earth House exudes a pleasant, rural vibe that you may come to love.
The hinterland location doesn’t affect accessibility, and you can get to the property in about 10 minutes. Couples and visitors can’t miss the rustic, Mediterranean architecture, which pairs nicely with the surrounding vegetation. The setting stays true to the “tasteful simplicity” for which Earth House’s founder aimed.
Their operations began in 2015 when Munro Black decided to turn his parent’s 110-acre farm into a successful event space. Several years have gone by, and Earth House now enjoys an excellent reputation as one of the best wedding destinations on the North Coast.
The property has the right features to make you feel comfortable on your special day.
