The part we love most about our job is hearing the beautiful feedback post our couple's wedding. We do all we can to ensure their day turns exactly as they imagined it to be, if not better.
My partner, Lucas, and I first visited Fig Tree in 2017, and fell in love with the venue and it’s beautiful grounds, views across Byron Bay, incredible food, option to bring your own wine, and friendly staff. Fast forward to 2021 when planning our wedding, and we knew that Fig Tree was the perfect place for us. The whole wedding planning process was helped considerably by Byron Bay Weddings – they certainly thought about all of the details, some of which I hadn’t even considered! Thank you to Sophie for all of your help.
What we love about Fig Tree are the different areas which create unique ambience during the day. Under the fig tree is perfect for the ceremony, the pool area creates a relaxed ‘holiday’ vibe for cocktails and canapes, and the restaurant is just stunning with views over Byron Bay including the lighthouse and Julian Rocks. As you move around the property during the day you are struck by how beautiful it is.
We received so many compliments on the food – with guests commenting that it was the best wedding food they have ever experienced. Everything is so fresh and the ‘paddock to plate’ experience shines through. We are very into our wine, and as members of a Yarra Valley winery we could have our own wine at Fig Tree to complement the food – we loved this!
The staff at Fig Tree are simply phenomenal. Thank you to Che, Rhonda, Jimmy and Jack. You were so friendly, helpful and supportive and went out of your way to ensure we felt special leading up to and on our big day. There may be other weddings taking place while you’re on site the night before, but you wouldn’t know – the staff are a perfect mix of there when you need them, and in the wings when you don’t. A special shout to Jimmy, our on the day coordinator, who ensured that everyone at the wedding had a great time. All of the waiting staff were also so polite, friendly and fun.
Overall, Fig Tree is a beautiful venue which is brought to life by fantastic staff who create unforgettable weddings. We’d recommend Fig Tree to others in a heartbeat.
Maddie (Wedding Planner) did a fantastic job leading up to the wedding, ensuring every detail was meticulously planned and that we hadn’t forgotten anything. She really understood the vibe we were going for and brought it to life. Her suggestions and advice were invaluable.
Jimmy and Kristen (Day Coordinators) couldn’t have done a better job on the day. There was severe rain and flooding on the weekend of our wedding, but we were definitely in safe hands. Both Jimmy and Kristen are true professionals, nothing was an issue and it was so nice to be able to relax, enjoy the day and not worry about a thing as they had it covered. Every staff member was so accommodating and really took care of our guests. Their passion for what they do and expertise are really evident. Even the day after our wedding when it was raining torrentially, the team had no problem with helping us pack up our car.
I’m a bit of a foodie so food was super important to me for our wedding. The food was absolutely amazing, the feedback from our guests was that it was the best wedding food they have ever had. The portions were huge and everyone loved that it wasn’t typical “wedding food” – the grilled prawns and watermelon salad were crowd favourites.
The venue itself is absolutely beautiful – it has such an intimate, elegant feel to it. The rebuild turned out better than we ever imagined.
It was honestly the best day of our lives and we wouldn’t change a thing. We would absolutely recommend the Fig Tree venue, Fig Tree Catering, and Byron Bay Weddings to anyone. We really hope one of our friends has a wedding at Fig Tree so we can experience it all again!
Thank you so much to Maddie (Wedding Planner) for all of her help over the last 12 months or so. We had an amazing day and it was truly down to the seamless coordination and great staff.
We just wanted to thank you to Sihanie (Wedding Planner) and Kate (Manager) for all of your help planning our wedding! We had the BEST day and it was everything we could have asked for and more; we couldn’t have done it without you.
Just wanted to say thanks to Carlie (Wedding Planner) for all her help organising our wedding. We had the best day. We were so happy with everything and absolutely loved the venue.
We really don’t know where to begin and how to express how grateful we are for everything Maddie (Wedding Planner), Sarah (Day Coordinator) and the Byron Bay Weddings team did to make our day perfect. Being forced to make the decision to postpone our wedding last year was shattering but we couldn’t imagine having to make that call without the support of the team at Byron Bay Weddings; we will be eternally grateful. We’d also like to extend our sincerest thanks to Che for taking time out to meet with us virtually during such a disruptive time for his business, again he only put our mind at ease, reassuring us that the team had all bases covered! We will be your biggest advocate and I know that everyone who attended our wedding came away amazed by what was delivered.
Thank you so much to Carlie (Wedding Planner) for being such a special part of the best day of our lives. You and the team at Byron Bay Weddings were amazing. Big shout out to Kate (Manager) & Kiel (Day Coordinator) who were amazing!
We just wanted to say a massive thank you to Sihanie (Wedding Planner) for all she did to make our day perfect! It all came together just as we planned and every detail was perfect! The venue looked beautiful, the wine and food were absolutely delicious, Andrew (Celebrant) was outstanding and Dan’s (DJ) tunes were awesome, not to forget the Byron Bay Weddings team, they were absolutely outstanding during the whole day & night, their service was amazing, and everyone commented on how awesome the day was and how friendly and lovely the team were so please pass our thank-you on.
Thank you so much Sophie and to Byron Bay Weddings for helping make our day so magical.
Hi Nicole, Che, Carmen and supporting teams of our A&D wedding
Thank you; we are ever so grateful that you played an integral part of our union of love. A day that was filled with joy, happiness and emotional loving energy.
Che, the food and service were impeccable, unforgettable, friends and family still talk of how delicious all the food was from the canapés, feasting mains and desserts. Not to mention the pig on a spit, that was off the charts.
Nicole and Carmen; I’m speechless, what an incredible experience and utterly perfect day… and there is perfect… we nailed it! The design of the day, the details, the music, the piano, lights… we and everyone else has been left in awe. Every detail played a special role in our love, our heritage, complementing our energy. Absolute magic and Carmen, the day was seamless you kept the energy alive on the day and nurtured our love bubble. I will never forget how you looked after me on the day.
To this day we are still beaming that we are married and look for every opportunity to call each other husband and wife.
May our video be a memory of an incredible day, a reflection of your efforts, we will never forget and all thanks to you and everyone involved.
All our love and gratitude,
Alicia and Doug xoxo
Byron Bay Weddings Team,
We cannot thank the entire team at Byron Bay Weddings and Fig Tree Restaurant enough for how absolutely amazing our wedding day was. Sihanie was the most amazing wedding planner to work with, nothing was ever too much trouble and the staff at Fig Tree went over and above on the day to ensure every single guest was happy, fed and having a ball. We have received so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was and how amazing all the staff were. Again, a huge thank you for making our wedding day the fairy tale wedding we always dreamt of, you were all such a pleasure to work with.
Thank you again,
Mr & Mrs Stuart xx
Thanks, Sophie for guiding us through it all. And a HUGE thanks to Marty for being an absolute miracle worker on the day. He was everywhere you needed him and worked masterfully with the team to make the day possible and everything we had imagined.
We’re settling back into the groove of things now and it feels a bit strange to not be expecting a check-in call from you anymore!
Andy & Simone
We are still on such a high from the whole weekend!
Our wedding was absolute perfection and more. We cannot thank you and the team enough for everything you did for us. Not just with coordination over the months and managing everything over the two days, but approaching our wedding with so much love and warmth and excitement.
It makes such a difference knowing you all absolutely love doing what you do.
Every single member of the team at Fig Tree have been so lovely and accommodating to us which meant that the only thing we had to concern ourselves with on the day was to enjoy ourselves and feel all the love surrounding us on our incredibly special day.
We can’t wait to come back for a little monthiversary dinner sometime soon and hug you all again.
Thanks for everything Sihanie,
Lots of love,
Eloise & Jeremy
Wow, what a day!
Firstly, I can’t thank you enough for helping me organise the wedding of my dreams! You were so easy to work with and helped me so much! Couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner!
The venue was just amazing and everything was so perfect.
From meeting Katie the day before and then Sarah on the day, it was just fantastic! She was so amazing and all the staff were just as amazing as well! The day went so smooth and I didn’t have to stress about anything. I knew I was in good hands! I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people!
I had the wedding of my dreams and I can’t thank each and every one of you guys enough, please pass this on to those involved.
I would recommend the Fig Tree and Byron Bay Weddings to everyone! The food was sensational and everybody commented on how good the day ran!
IT WAS JUST PERFECT! So, so, so happy!
Love always Mr and Mrs Hart
Sihanie and the BBW team,
Firstly, I just want to thank you for all your advice, hints and tips, when it came to the planning and selection of EVERYTHING for our wedding day. And thank you for answering all my many, many enquiries, and helping me through the process when we had to make some unexpected changes. I know I couldn’t have done it without you!
Thank you for helping to create our dream wedding! It really was the best day! You truly have selected and created such a talented and passionate tribe of professionals and should be proud of the high standards and exceptional service they provide! Almost every single vendor exceeded expectations!
Every little detail was just what we imagined. I know its cheesy, and I’m sure every couple say it, but it really was the most perfect day, and thank you all for the part you played in making it that way!
Mr + Mrs Patterson
On behalf of Brenton and I, I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping organise our wedding and make our day so special!
We had the most amazing day, it was so much more than we could have ever picture. The way everything came together and how the venue looked was absolutely stunning and more!
Everything just flowed from start to finish and we all felt so relaxed. All of our guests and family had the most amazing day and complemented absolutely everything! So, thank you and all the team for putting everything together and helping us we appreciate everything you all did for us!! 🙂
Mitch and I cannot thank you and the team enough. It was the absolute best day of our lives, we both went into it thinking being the bride and groom we wouldn’t get to enjoy the day as much as our guests but I can definitely say it’s the most fun we’ve ever had.
The accommodation was insane, the styling of the venue, the staff, the service – I can go on and on. They say your wedding day is one of the best days of your life and our day was just amazing.
We want to say a massive thank you to Katie and the little pocket rocket Chris. Chris was amazing on the night she made everything so breezy, always ensured the drinks where flowing and that Mitch and I were having fun. The chefs, oh my goodness! The food was to die for, I’m literally still dreaming about that lamb! The guests and ourselves were saying it was the best wedding food we’ve all ever had. We both can’t believe the amount of food supplied!
And a massive thank you to you, Sihanie! Thank you for everything you have done for us over the past year and a half and making it the easiest experience. You and the team at Byron Bay Weddings are all next level. So friendly, happy and amazing at what you all do!
Mitch and I are already looking forward to celebrating our first wedding anniversary under the fig tree next year!
So, so, so much love
From the new Mr & Mrs Munday xxx
Dear Fig Tree,
Thank you so, so, so, so much for what was the most unforgettable day of both Winston and I’s lives! We could not fault anything from the day. From the start to the end everything was delivered with such grace, personality, professionalism and most of all with heart. The comments we received from all our guest were nothing but glowing, every single one of our guests said that it was possibly one of the best weddings they have ever been to and we only have you guys to thank you for it. The food was just incredible there was so much of it but it was all so beautiful and delicious which is exactly what we wanted! The day flowed so beautifully!
I wanted to say a special thanks to some special people:
Che – You are so, so humble and have a special way of making people feel welcome at your beautiful home. Thank you so much for having us and letting us share your property for such a special day.
Sophie – You are just amazing, thank you for all your hard work with organising our wedding. Thank you for your patience with how indecisive I am. The day was just amazing and we wish you could have been there to witness it!
Katie – Thank you so much for your guidance and professionalism on the day. You made us feel cool and calm on what was a big day.
Niall – What a bloody charmer! You were amazing. Always looking after us making sure we had full drinks and stuffing our faces with food! Everyone has commented on how awesome you were
Kristin – Thank you so much for looking after us in the morning! You did an amazing job.
We just wanted to share with you guys how thankful we are for everything you did for us. The memories we have will never ever be forgotten. Our guests were also over the moon with how the day was and we only have you guys to thank for this. We still cannot believe how well the day went, whatever you guys are doing keep doing it because you’re all absolutely amazing.
Love Winston and Jamie Parker xx
Nathan and I had the most amazing day and we’re so grateful to you and the team for everything that you did for us to bring it all together. The planning process was amazing, the relocation was handled well and the on-the-day service from the team was perfect. We were so well looked after and everyone we met from the Fig Tree and Byron Bay Weddings teams were so lovely and professional.
Thanks again Sihanie,
Andrea & Nathan
Again, we truly can’t thank you and the team enough.
Chris + Mads, xo.
We had the most incredible day. We keep reflecting on it and marvelling at how wonderful it was.
I can’t remember if I have responded to you on this email – it’s been such a whirlwind! We just got back from honeymoon which was incredible, as was the wedding!
Everything was spectacular! From the wonderful planning and coordination you provided through to the cottage, the service and the food – just amazing! Our guests have been saying it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Katie and Jimmy were awesome and everything flowed seamlessly.
Thanks again Sihanie,
Where to start… our experience with you all was just amazing! Our day was perfect, the food was to die for and the service was impeccable! Our stay at The Dairy was so enjoyable and the beautiful staff brought us dinner Friday night and looked after us with beautiful breaky and lunch. All our guests had an absolute ball. Many commenting on the service, food and most defiantly the view and how beautiful Fig Tree is. Thank you for your guidance and helping create and put together our perfect wedding. We will never forget it and look forward to visiting again in the future.
Love Steph and Angus xx
Thank you so much, we had the absolute best time. The team were amazing on the day and the planning was so great in the lead up. Booking and using BBW was definitely the best decision we made about the wedding, so thank you again for all your work!
It all started with Nicole, and her wonderful assistance! To work with someone who knew the venue well made it such a breeze. She was ever so patient with the number of changes I made throughout the planning process and the millions of emails back and forth. Nothing was ever an issue and everything was always handled so efficiently.
THE WEDDING SHED
Fran from The Wedding Shed gave our wedding the finishing touches it really needed. Her attention to detail for our Boho Luxe theme/style really finished off my ideal style for our dream wedding. To deal with someone with such a beautiful sense of style gave our wedding the WOW factor, to which we had so many comments from our guests as to how magical our styling really was!
THE TEAM ON THE DAY
Jimmy was a-m-a-z-i-n-g! He was such a blessing in disguise on the day and his super friendly persona just made him the most like-able guy! Nothing was an issue and he went above and beyond to ensure our day ran so smoothly! I can honestly say that the venue crew on the day prior and the day of our wedding was a big hit for us! They just had everything covered and absolutely everything ran so smoothly. It was the most perfect day and all credit goes to such a wonderful and collaborative wedding team at Byron Bay Weddings.
FIG TREE RESTAURANT
We have never eaten such delicious wedding food in our entire lives! The kitchen crew at Fig Tree Restaurant are to be commended on their delicious menu. The biggest hit of the wedding was the food and the quality (and to mention the quantity of the share platters!!), where not a single soul was left hungry. The meats were tender and the vegetables and sides just to die for! Thank you Fig Tree Restaurant for providing a wonderful menu for our special day. We will be coming back for dinner sometime soon, (and all 80 guests I think)!
SLIM & BOBBY (haha)
Now we can’t forget to mention Slim and Bobby. Although Slim definitely stole my bride spotlight with his utter-cuteness and puppy cuddles hehe, it was such a lovely opportunity to have them there as a little something different (and seeing we are complete dog lovers!). It was so lovely to wake up the morning after our wedding and watching them play on the lawn and take in all the beautifulness of such a wonderful venue. They are just the cutest!
byronviewfarm will forever hold a special place in our hearts. The cottage and facilities were just perfect for the big day and we couldn’t have had better weather if we tried. The venue was immaculate. Everything was perfect, it was honestly the most perfect day and we are super grateful.
I just want to say a huge thank you to you especially, along with the wonderful team at Byron Bay Weddings and The Fig Tree. Ollie, myself and all our guests were so so impressed with how the day went, everything ran so smoothly and the food was amazing as always. There were so many nice surprises on the day, even the crazy weather and rainbows. It’s amazing how all those things you worry or spend so much time thinking about just fall into place. A huge part of that is due to your wonderful help and calming advice throughout the whole process.
Honestly, I don’t know what I would have done without BBW, Nicole made everything so easy! It was such a relief to have her looking after us, answering all my silly questions (there were A LOT) and taking care of little details so that I didn’t have to. I was so calm on the morning of the wedding because I knew I was in such good hands!
One of the most consistent comments we’ve had about our wedding is the
food! Chef, Che & his team created the most delicious, delicate & dreamy courses of food we’ve ever tasted. After dining at the Fig Tree in the lead up to our wedding, we wanted to give Che creative license to create the food that he loves, which translated beautifully into a dining experience that took our guests to France. Thankyou Che!
We had the most amazing day at The Fig Tree and honestly, you and the team could not have met the brief at a higher standard – it was absolutely perfect.
Chris and I would like to thank you all kindly for being so attentive to every detail, friendly to all our amazing guests and just overall fantastic throughout the whole 2 days we spent there. The food was phenomenal with additional compliments from Tetsuya’s Executive Chef – Josh Raine, a very good friend of ours and guest on the day.
Thank you so much for all your help over the last year! And also to Lloyd who was beyond amazing on the day. We honestly couldn’t fault a single thing. From the ease of the whole day / night, to the service! The food is still being talked about now, everyone loved it! And of course Earth House got lots of compliments 🙂
I was soooo happy with every single supplier too!
Everything went exactly how we had planned and visioned. Another huge thankyou to you, Che and the team. All our guests commented on how amazing the venue and food were. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without your help.
I just wanted to say a very massive thank you for everything that you put into making sure that we had the best wedding day. Thanks so much for all of your support with the coordination over the past year! Aidan and I had the best day ever. All of the guests said it was such an amazing day and the BBW staff were so lovely and accommodating. The styling was incredible! The food was delicious, and the guests raved about it. Those arancini balls were the best ones I’ve ever had!
Thank you!! We honestly had the best day of our lives, and everything turned out perfectly!! All our guests had the best time and couldn’t stop commenting on how stunning everything was and we had SO many compliments on all the food!
Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job in the lead up and for all your help and support the last year! Adrian and Dave on the day were absolutely fantastic as well and really went over and above to make sure I had everything I needed and make me feel comfortable on the day. Please pass on how happy I was with everything.
We are honestly so happy with everything and Byronviewfarm was the most perfect venue.
We had THE BEST DAY – it was so much fun and everything just ran beautifully – Lloyd was fantastic. You and the team have been just fantastic since day one and throughout our little venue hiccup. I’m so glad it all happened that way because we just LOVED The Orchard Estate. Everyone has been raving about the wedding and the food and how well it was run so a big well done to your team. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Thank you so much. The service provided by Byron Bay Weddings on our wedding day was absolutely outstanding. Jimmy and the team made us feel super comfortable and at ease and everything was amazing. All of our guests absolutely raved about the food and service and it ensured a wonderful night for all. We appreciate all that yourself and the team did for us in the lead up to and on the day, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping our dream day come to life!
Thank you! Thank you!
Undoubtedly the best day of our lives!!
We are so lucky and blessed to have had such luck with the weather! It’s actually unbelievable that we had no rain, not even a drop! It was the perfect day!!
You guys at Byron Bay Weddings knocked it out of the park – absolutely killing it! I’ve had so many compliments from friends and family! Above and beyond to make our day perfect!
It all went so smoothly, from every little detail to dotting every I – 110% met our expectations and more.
So thank you!
We are so appreciative and grateful to have you guys there with us for our special day!!
Thank you Carlie and the team so much for everything leading up to the day as well as on the wedding day. Everything was perfect, we had the best day with no stress and we were able to enjoy every moment knowing you had it covered. The ceremony and the hall looked absolutely beautiful we were both in shock at how great it had turned out. We really appreciate all the hard work that went into turning the hall into such a fairytale space. We received so many compliments on the decorations and finer details of the hall that you and Bower Botanicals provided, as well as the food, the food was outstanding everyone was so full and everything was so yum.
We honestly woke up the day after the wedding praising BBWs and the great job you all did and how amazing it was not having to worry about anything. It was the biggest relief on the day just knowing everything was all done, you all made us truly have such a magical day and we wouldn’t change a thing, it was just perfect.
