Can you tell us a bit about your venue?
It’s a beautiful beach cafe directly across Belongil Beach in Byron Bay. Rustic, beachy decor that creates a dreamy venue for our weddings!
What inspired you to get involved with weddings?
No two weddings are the same. The inspiration to become involved in weddings was purely based on creating something new and special every time. No monotony equals an exciting job!
And what about the facilities your venue offers?
The Belongil is situated on a beautiful dead-end road that runs parallel to Belongil Beach. We are like a one-stop-shop because everything is in walking distance to us. There’s local accommodation (there’s heaps of different accommodation in Belongil ranging from backpackers to a 5 star resort) and ceremony locations (Old Jetty Park and Belongil Beach are the most popular options as they are both directly opposite us).
What do you think is the selling point for most couples?
No need for transport! Walk to the ceremony from your accommodation, walk to us and then stumble home after the reception. There are beautiful photo opportunity locations in walking distance to us as well, so there really is no need for transport. Accommodation, ceremony and reception all in the one spot!
What’s your favourite thing you’ve seen a couple do at your venue?
So many things! Fire twirlers, fairy lights on all trees, magicians and of course bringing their fur babies to the venue as we are dog friendly!
And what do you think would be epic at your property? Any ideas you’d love to see a couple carry out?
We have gorgeous vintage ladders permanently hanging on our ceilings, it would be amazing to see them dressed with beautiful hanging flowers over each table.
Describe the kind of couples your venue attracts?
Couples that are after a relaxed, beach-loving and want a destination wedding.
Any new additions on the horizon?
We’re working on some pretty yummy cocktails at the moment!
