Byron Bay or Tweed Coast, beachside or hinterland Micro & Intimate Weddings – Where should we get married?
Take my hand darling, let’s go exploring. When planning your perfect celebration, there is much to consider, with so many incredible locations through Byron Bay, Tweed Coast, the Hinterland and Gold Coast. We want to inspire you with some of our favourite locations and venues to make the process a little easier.

- You simply book a local cafe, rest or bar for your “Reception”
- You can upgrade any of our vendors for your “Reception” ie: reception styling, floristry or extended photography
Belongil Beach + The Belongil Café
Let’s start our journey at Belongil Beach – we love this beach for a myriad of reasons. It’s quiet and picturesque, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist hotspot that is Byron Bay Main Beach and wait for it, it’s dog friendly *swoon*. Belongil Beach is perfect if having your fur baby play a part of your nuptials is important to you. Right opposite the beachfront, you’ll find The Belongil Café, a stunning café by day, wedding venue by night. This versatile space works beautifully for a sunrise ceremony with a breakfast reception or a sunset celebration followed by the whole shebang, dinner, drinks and DJ.
Welcome to Tooraloo Farm, a charming all-in-one DIY farmstay venue nestled in the hills just minutes from Byron Bay township. Previously a working dairy, now an idyllic accommodation and wedding venue boasting both a country and beach lifestyle. This rustic venue features romantic ceremony spaces and loads of options for your reception as you watch the sunset over the lush, green valley. With all you need for a weekend long celebration, including tastefully restored accommodation for you and your guests, a pool and cabana for soaking up the Byron Bay sunshine, BBQ pavilion and fire pit to gather around and of course, the farm animals!
Hastings Point Headland + Babalou
So, we’ve now travelled about half an hour north of Byron Bay to the beautiful Kingscliff area of the Tweed Coast. Our favourite beachside ceremony location is the stunning Hastings Point Headland, where emerald green waves crash onto the dramatic backdrop of volcanic rock and quintessential white sand of Clarkes Beach. We won’t lie, it can get a bit windy up there, so it’s best to consider your ceremony and hair styling options with this mind, but you are guaranteed some of the most spectacular ceremony photos you can imagine. To complement your beachside ceremony, we suggest none other than the contemporary wedding reception venue, Babalou. Situated in prime position on Marine Parade in Kingscliff, Babalou features sweeping panoramic views of the ocean and stylish interior to help you create a magic celebration.
Lovers Rock + The Pink Hotel Rooftop
As we move closer to the Queensland border, you’ll find Lovers Rock Park, as if the name alone isn’t enough to draw you in as the perfect spot to say ‘I Do’! The moniker originated in the 1900’s because lovers found the secluded area of the Tweed Coastline perfect to escape in peace and it has remained so until this day. Lovers Rock Park offers a comfortable grassy ceremony option with spectacular ocean backdrop, while sheltered by the sea breeze thanks to the rock formation the space is named after. With ease of access and plenty of space, it’s one of our favourites. For a boutique party space nearby to continue the celebrations, we suggest the Pink Hotel’s Rooftop Bar, Santeria Rooftop. Modern and artistic furnishings in the accommodation rooms and unparallel views of Coolangatta Beach means your guests will be talking about your wedding for years to come.
Burleigh Beach + Burleigh Pavilion
A hop, skip and jump over the boarder into Queensland brings us to the new artisan heart of the Gold Coast, Burleigh. Home to trendy cafes, chic restaurants, accommodation options galore and of course, the idyllic beachside lifestyle the Gold Coast is famous for, making Burleigh an excellent choice for a jampacked and energetic wedding holiday. Our pick of the ceremony locations in the area is John Laws Park, offering sweeping views of the bustling Burleigh Heads beachfront and Gold Coast skyline. Located right next door, is Burleigh Pavilions, featuring absolute beachfront luxury dining, and the perfect spot to spoil a small group of loved ones to a fancy feast or book out the whole venue for a night of revelry.
