About This Venue
Just a 25 minute drive from Coffs Harbour, Cedar Bar & Kitchen is nestled in the heart of Bellingen in a 110 year-old church. The carefully restored building boasts original stained glass windows and 7-metre high ceilings. The venue comprises of a front bar with a modern, sophisticated interior, two large timber balconies which can be fully enclosed protecting guests from the elements, and our large, grand function space ‘The Cedar Room.’
The Cedar Room offers couples the versatility to be used as both a ceremony and reception space. The clean, white finish of the room is punctuated with modern detailing, providing couples with the opportunity to create their own unique theming. Perfect for an intimate gathering or a large celebration of up to 150 guests cocktail style and 110 guests banquet style, Cedar offers selected venue hire of use of The Cedar Room only or of the entire venue.
The food concept at Cedar is a relaxed take on local, simple ingredients with regionally sourced proteins and local fresh produce. Seated receptions are served banquet style with plates shared on the tables to create a communal feasting experience. Menus will be tailored to the couples specifications ensuring their day truly represents them.
Both the interior and exterior of the building offer bountiful photo opportunities for the couple of their special day. The afternoon light on the front of the church creates a stunning backdrop for your wedding photos.

Owner / Manager
Opened in December 2015, Cedar Bar & Kitchen is the concept from husband and wife team Paul & Victoria Harper. Passionate advocates of the local food scene, the pair have created a relaxed atmosphere welcoming locals and tourists alike. Proud parents to toddler twin girls, Paul & Victoria understand the importance of providing a dining experience the whole family can enjoy.
Cedar Bar & Kitchen features a wide selection of regional and international craft beer, boutique wines and spirits. Whiskey connoisseur Paul will happily tailor a drinks selection to the bride and grooms unique needs -from sourcing their favourite wines to creating a couples signature cocktail. With over 10 years in Marketing and Events, Victoria is passionate about creating a memorable experience for the guests, and more importantly the bride and groom, so they feel their day has been truly special.
Fondly known by the locals as “the church that’s not church,” Victoria and Paul think it’s the perfect setting for a relaxed, country style wedding. “We instantly fell in love when we saw this renovated 110 year old church,” and couldn’t wait to to start their new venture and family in Bellingen.
