Given our beautiful beachfront location (with easy access to the beach) and our growing bush tucker garden space, we are often asked if we would consider our luxury beachfront holiday home as an option for Kingscliff Wedding Venues.
We believe that in our quest to offer our guests the most perfect wedding available, we will stick to what we know best – that is luxury beachfront accommodation perfect for either the bride and her attendants (beautiful photo opportunities abound around the home, the garden, the boardwalk or on the beach) or a family/guest group. So sadly, our answer is no to being a venue, but YES! to providing beautiful, beachfront, luxury accommodation!
Imagine your wedding day when you wake up in a four poster, king-size bed (with wafting muslin curtains), with a light breeze ticking your face, the sun streaming through the picture window and a luxurious bathroom with its own in-room bath just waiting to be run…. This could be your reality!
mmm… Better stop dreaming…. This could be your reality.
In an effort to answer your questions, we have come up with wonderful, local, Kingscliff Wedding Venues suggestions which can offer a personalised service aimed at making your day memorable, special and just the way you had always planned.
Planning your wedding on the Tweed Coast
However, before we start, how about some tips for a local wedding planner?
Casuarina Weddings has been created to offer brides and grooms-to-be the opportunity to hold their wedding in a relatively untapped location, in their own unique way. Casuarina is the perfect place for a beach/garden/industrial/rustic/vintage or fine-dining wedding. An array of accommodation options also allows for couples to facilitate an entire wedding weekend with their guests from near and far.
Casuarina Weddings hosts a venue directory (of their favourite venues) as well as the most comprehensive lists of local wedding suppliers you may be interested in through their online directory. You will find us there at http://www.casuarinaweddings.com.au/accommodation.
Kristy at Casuarina Weddings is also an amazing photographer – check out some recent photos on her Figtree Pictures Facebook page. Kristy says “We are boutique photography service following love and beautiful weddings from Brisbane to Byron Bay and beyond”.
Kingscliff Wedding Venues
There are many local restaurants who cater for weddings in our local area (including our favourite restaurant, Fins at Salt, Kingscliff), but many of our brides (who stay with us) have chosen the following local venues:
Option 1: Osteria
Casuarina Weddings exclusively looks after the bookings for the only two Wedding venues in the Casuarina area – Osteria & the Spice Den. Casuarina is the next small town south of Kingscliff and offers a true getaway experience.
The Osteria is an eclectic venue based in the heart of Casuarina Beach. Just a stone’s throw from the pristine beaches, the venues offers one of the most unique wedding venues on the Tweed Coast. With its rustic charm, and industrial edge, the space can be transformed into something unique and noteworthy.
Option 2: The Spice Den
Spice Den is nestled in an amazing balinese style resort in Casuarina, on the Northern New South Wales Coast. It offers the most amazing dining & culinary experience with its ‘banquet style’ Thai street food. Spice Den offers a very sophisticated & mature space, whilst still being very relaxed and coastal.
Option 3: Kingscliff Beach Bowls Club
The Kingscliff Beach Bowls Club’s Waves Function Room will offer you a tranquil and elegant setting for your Wedding Reception, and they take great pride in their ability to offer a friendly and informative service to help make your special day go exactly as planned.
In addition to their Function Room facilities, Kingscliff Beach Bowls Club can also accommodate an outdoor Wedding Ceremony in any location. Your Ceremony could be held on the white sandy Kingscliff Beach fronting the Club, or in the adjacent parkland, or at another location of your choice. They consider themselves the Beach Wedding Specialists! And yes, they do have Barefoot Bowls options for weddings too.
Other added extras include a dessert or lolly bar complimentary for mid week weddings and their Courtesy bus runs every day. This could be what you are looking for!
Option 4: Babalou at the Kingscliff Hotel
Babalou say “Where the past and future meet in harmony, a perfect starting place for your marriage awaits.
The timeless elegance of our venue and its’ surrounds share in over 100 years of established history. Our spectacular views, welcoming ambience and historical character will allow you to spend this special day indulging in our exquisite cuisine and impeccable service.”
Sounds pretty good doesn’t it! The wedding venue is pretty funky too – and you can download their function menu online. Oh – and as an added benefit – they run a free 10-seater shuttle bus service locally on Friday and Saturday evenings to help transport your guests to their accommodation (bookings required).
Option 5: Halcyon House
With its idyllic beachfront location on majestic Cabarita Beach, the newly opened Halcyon House is the ideal year round location for your ceremony, pre-dinner drinks and your wedding reception.
Elegant and full of natural light, our event space at Halcyon House is the perfect location for both day and evening weddings. Located on the north side of the property, with concertina doors open onto a terrace that overlooks the pool area and leads onto the dunes. The terrace is a prime place to enjoy pre-dinner drinks and canapés.
