Wedding Accommodation for Bridal Groups and Families
At La Maison Pacifique, we have the perfect location for peaceful, private wedding accommodation for either bridal groups, wedding couples or wedding guests.
With a plethora of opportunities for spectacular photos, your own private, luxury resort and spa experience and links to local wedding planners, venues, day spas and a photographer, we can offer engaged couples a truly unique and beautiful accommodation choice which is well priced and private.
Given our beautiful beachfront location (with easy access to the beach), we are often asked if we would consider our luxury beachfront holiday home as an option for Kingscliff Wedding Venues. Sadly, our answer is no to being a venue for ceremonies or receptions (due to our beautiful property being in the heart of a peaceful residential area), but YES! to providing beautiful, beachfront, luxury accommodation!
The usual disclaimers apply, however, we can say that we do know these wonderful local suppliers below personally and we too would be disappointed by any difficulties.

Your wedding photos at La Maison Pacifique
Our sincere thanks to the lovely Beth who has allowed us to share some photos of her special day. So, be inspired by these magical Wedding photos taken at La Maison Pacifique! (oh, and one at Osteria!).
Local Wedding Planner
Our favourite would have to be Casuarina Weddings – we are regularly hosting bridal groups (more than a dozen in the last 12 months alone!) and love their attention to detail and local contacts in the industry. Casuarina Weddings (and their suppliers) are committed to ensuring your wedding day follows your own plans and desires and the regular positive feedback they receive is testimony to their efforts and attention to detail.
No particular order here, but really up to you to think about what you are looking for.
Osteria – Has its own function room and garden so could be a one-stop shop for your ceremony and reception. Main venue for Casuarina Weddings and the space is adaptable for whatever themed wedding you could possibly hope for. Osteria (and Casuarina Weddings) work closely with local suppliers such as Elyssium Blooms and Little Gray Station to create the most perfect atmosphere for your special day. Make sure you check out the lighting options by Elyssium Blooms. Just beautiful.
Kingscliff Beach Bowls Club – 180 degree beach views – right on the beachfront and a popular local wedding venue. Well used to hosting Destination Weddings for out of town brides, this could be a great choice for your special day. Many brides take the option of a fun barefoot bowls match for the guests. Helen and her team are great at ensuring everything goes smoothly and the views are to die for!
Salt Bar Beach Bar and Bistro – with easy access to the beach at Salt Kingscliff, the Salt Bar has long been a favourite venue for both local and Destination Wedding brides. You will work with the specialist on-site wedding planner to create a day to remember for you and your guests. Plenty of accommodation for guests is available with the Mantra, Bale and Peppers resorts on the same site, but we suggest considering other great options such as local holiday homes (speak to our own Di Hendy for some great ideas).
Fins Restaurant – Apart from being our absolute favourite local restaurant (well they do have a total commitment to insisting on only serving local organic produce, line caught fish, sustainable practices, rejecting farmed fish, fighting against genetically modified crops, reducing our carbon foot print and shopping from local farmers rather than multinational companies), every event at Fins is customized and personalized regardless of the size of the group. This is why they do not offer a “generic” functions package. Fins treat all their events as a “one off”. To get started, the award winning team (one-hatted for a record 17+ years!) at Fins can send you package for a standard, premium or a luxe event. Fins will then tailor your event to meet both your budget and (go far beyond) all your expectations.
Halycon House – A 5 star boutique hotel located in Cabarita Beach which will provide a unique and exciting setting for guests. Their beautiful location offers is quite literally on the beach, in Cabarita Beach and will be one of a kind – an exclusive destination for weddings, couples and retreats. See their write up in Vogue Living here.
Babalou – funky atmosphere and a great location on Marine Parade, Kingscliff – located on the top floor of the Kingscliff Beach Hotel. You will be able to book the whole upstairs restaurant and bar for your special day – but don’t forget that your guests can while away some time in the new long bar downstairs. A real local destination and a great place to chill before the reception.

Hair, Make-up and Pampering
What bridal group doesn’t want to mix it up on the day with some great hair, make-up and pampering. This could include sessions the day before and we have a great recommendation here too.
The Workshop, Cabarita Beach is a vibrant, fun and luxurious health and beauty destination located in beautiful Cabarita Beach. Providing their clients with the very best in beauty, hair and make-up services, their aim is to please, to delight and to make each and every client look, feel and be fabulous. It’s the perfect one-stop-shop before your big event.
Having worked in the television industry on newsreaders, which is a live programme, if you run late – you never work again! It is extremely important on your wedding day for the makeup and hair artists to not run late! We at La Maison Pacifique can therefore recommend Suzi Dent Hair Stylist and Makeup for your special day. With Suzi’s team, you will have two artists on the day. Suzi herself will do your hair and makeup and your bridesmaid’s makeup whilst her hairdressing assistant will do all the girls hair, so everybody is always having something done. The bridesmaids will have their hair set, then come to Suzi for makeup then back to having their hair style finished. The day flows smoothly and calmly this way! You will also have Suzi’s assistance in getting dressed – especially if your dress laces up at the back (and so fingernails remain flawless!).
We have recently found a couple of great photographers who we would recommend to you!
Pineapple Images – Elisa is an accredited photographer having completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Photography). Her photos are truly beautiful and whilst specialising in beautiful, inspirational Wedding Photography, also does engagement, new family (just gorgeous) and pregnancy photos. Elisa’s clients keep coming back as their life story unfolds.
Fig Tree Pictures – also Kristy of Casuarina Weddings. Established in the region and coordinating her photography through her other interests Kristy and her team are passionate about photography and this shows in their work.
For the boys – its all about the car…
Thinking of something different for your wedding cars? We love local business Vintage Wagens. Partner of Elisa of Pineapple Images, Mike’s ‘Rusty’ – a 1964 split screen VW kombi has been lovingly & immaculately restored ready and available to make the stunning entrance only a Kimbi can create.
