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.
