We recently had the pleasure of meeting many excited couples as they previewed venues and wedding services at the Byron Bay Wedding Fair. There was a lot of excitement in the air as couples went about planning their special day. Many we chatted with couldn’t wait to share their love with their friends and family at a destination wedding they’ll never forget.
Quite a few couples were busy professionals or working on graduate degrees and were looking for guidance and tips on how to streamline the planning process. They shared a common desire to have a fun, stress-free event that was also a joyful experience. As lots of couples came to realise, Byron Bay Weddings and the wedding service professionals invited to participate in the Fair can make this happen.
Choosing a venue was a challenge for some. There are many excellent options and the beautiful coastal and hinterland locations on the amazing north coast offer overwhelming choice. We suggested to a few couples that they allow their sixth sense to guide them in finding the venue that is right for them … and to relax and enjoy the experience. Their eventual choice of venue will be influenced by their personal style and vision, and then décor and florals will follow … this will be so important as it puts their personal stamp on the day.
Byron View Farm, Forget-me-not, The Byron Surf Club, Earth House, Verandahs and Orchard Estate, to name but a few, were some of the amazing wedding locations showcased on the day. We found our niche at Fig Tree with a group of other talented wedding service providers who were on hand to chat about styling and decor, floral design, wedding photography, music, hair and makeup and much more.
It’s no secret that Fig Tree is one of our favourite wedding locations. Its magnificent expansive views over the Byron Bay coast line and lush gardens under the ancient fig tree provide a captivating setting which is complemented with many intriguing nooks and alcoves.
We were thrilled to be asked to exhibit our love of distinctive floristry and artistry at Fig Tree, and really enjoyed the responsibility of designing and creating floral styling to showcase the brand-new ceremony area on the upper lawn. We added floral decorations to the beautiful white stone ceremony site overlooking the magnificent coastline with Byron Bay light house in the distance. The fresh tropical theme furnishings from The Wedding Shed decked with our elegant florals were a feast for the eyes.
Spectacular white phalaenopsis orchids and lots of lush tropical foliage accented with gold leaves set the scene for a soft, romantic and very elegant, intimate tropical paradise … so beautiful and such a stunning setting. We loved creating a vista that was so feminine, but which also had a broad appeal … yes, the guys loved it too!
Featuring a host of fabulous suppliers, the Fair was brilliantly coordinated by Byron Bay Weddings who know exactly how to organise the perfect event. The weekend was designed to inspire and inform couples about the venues and the suppliers and services that could make their wedding planning seamless and result in the most amazing day … finessed to a tee with the knowledge and experience of caring professionals.
So, if you enjoyed your visit to the Fair and are inspired with lots of wonderful ideas for your special day, keep in touch … via Instagram or email. We look forward to being on your dream team!
