6. TALK ABOUT ABUNDANCE
Culture, culture, culture. This is one small coastal meets country region with a WHOLE lot to give. Experience amazing diversity across venues, beaches, the Byron hinterland, nightlife, restaurants, cafés, activities and more. Delve into the vibrant community whilst you are here, by getting amongst Byron’s weekly markets, local boutique shopping and of course, the thriving creative scene of music and art. There is also a plethora of accommodation options, so rest assured your guests will be able to secure somewhere to stay that’s not only keeping within their budget, but will offer the choice of a coastal, hinterland or suburban setting.
7. FOOD & BEVERAGE
Byron Bay invites you to a culinary experience, quite like no other. If you’ve ever visited, you will surely know that fresh, organic produce is the foundation of what our local supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and markets preach and serve. This standard carries across for your wedding dining experience too. We work alongside Fig Tree Catering and Feast Events who epitomise the most authentic paddock-to-plate ethos in Byron Bay, ingrained in their history since 1981. Most of their ingredients are home-grown, picked daily from the garden and orchards by their chefs. What they can’t grow themselves is sourced locally from the neighbouring fisherman, farmers and producers.
As for the beverage side of things, there’s also an abundance of local choices to choose from. With the organic wine and boutique distillery industry in full-swing, Byron is proud to offer you some pretty incredible drops. For starters, we are home to the delicious Pacific Ale by Stone & Wood. Upon others, we are really loving the bio-dynamic range of Jilly Wines and Brookies Gin by Cape Byron Distillery. Take the opportunity and try one of their tours while you’re here.
8. PRE & POST WEDDING EVENTS
Byron Bay is the perfect playground for your pre and post-wedding festivities. Considering your guests will all be in the one place, take advantage of it! A ladies day sipping cocktails, BBQ’s on the beach, a rehearsal dinner at The Balcony, welcome drinks at Loft Byron Bay, an after-party at The Bolt Hole or a recovery brunch at The Butcher & Cook. The options are endless, and they are all equally wonderful!
