Barefoot at Broken Head
The only private house in the Byron Shire approved for wedding receptions, located just a short drive from the heart of Byron Bay.
Barefoot at Broken Head hosts the most sophisticated beach weddings in Australia. The couple walks through the sand dunes to the ceremony site on a pristine surf beach where eucalypts crowd thick over the hills and waves roll in from the picturesque point. With not a house in sight, at the end of the single stretch of sand their guests see the most easterly point of Australia – the iconic Byron Bay Lighthouse.
Following the wedding ceremony, the guests stroll back along the winding bush track and through the back gate of the house, revealing the architectural splendour that is Barefoot at Broken Head. With large wooden decks descending into lush tropical gardens, imagine sipping cocktails and enjoying delicious canapés under a rainforest canopy while you dance into the evening.
Barefoot at Broken Head provides you with the ultimate beach wedding venue, infrastructure and luxury accommodation all in one. For coordination and catering we work with renowned local company Byron Bay Weddings who run Fig Tree Restaurant in the hills overlooking Byron. You purchase your own alcohol and beverages from wherever you wish and have them delivered to the venue for your wedding.
Inclusions & Cost
Our wedding package provides the essential items for couples to hold their wedding at Barefoot without the need to hire in any infrastructure. To hold a reception couples rent the whole house for a four-night minimum stay (three nights if all midweek) and pay reception fee that depends on the number of guests.
Byron Bay Weddings offer the finest 5-star experience with full co-ordination to tailor your specific vision, food tastings to construct your menu, and award-winning service. They are available at Barefoot to cater for all events from 8 to 70 guests.
Simple Wedding Plan
For up to 30 guests (not including children under 10 years) we also offer Barefoot’s complete in-house catering package, which provides all food, waitstaff, bar staff, and wedding coordination by our house manager Frances starting at $162 per head. We have developed this package in response to couples who want the laid back sophistication of Barefoot, with a casual yet elegant simplicity.
The food is catered by our in-house chefs. Please request menu options for canapés or sit-down receptions with various tiers of choice.
