WEDDINGS AT NIGHTCAP RIDGE
ABOUT NIGHTCAP RIDGE
Nightcap Ridge is a glamorous country estate in the Byron Hinterland. Located inside the Nightcap National Park, the 70 acre property is surrounded by lush rainforest, providing a stunning natural backdrop for your destination wedding.
Nightcap Ridge is a private oasis inside the Park with a world-class wedding venue, The Argory. Meaning hill of the garden, The Argory has a huge covered deck, vaulted ceilings and a rustic stone ﬁreplace, providing a stylish all-weather space for your reception. The venue also includes a bar and kitchen as well as bathrooms and shower rooms.
The Argory overlooks the lily ponds which is just one of the many magical spots on the property to hold your wedding ceremony. You could even arrive in style by helicopter or horse and carriage.
To accommodate your wedding guests, there are three cottages at Nightcap Ridge which can sleep 10 in total. Our studio accommodates two people and our two luxury 2-bedroom cottages sleep four in each. All cottages include an outdoor ﬁre pit area, indoor ﬁre and old-school freestanding bath.
We can help you arrange glamping accommodation for additional guests to stay on the property and a local bus service to drop your guests back to the many Airbnb properties within the local area. You also have the option of hosting a pre-wedding dinner or a recovery party the following day to really get the most out of your wedding weekend.
Your guests can wander the many forest tracks, play lawn games, swim in the dam or lounge by the bar at The Argory. The more adventurous can walk some of the trails in the national park, horse ride or swim at the local waterfalls.

We know how overwhelming it is to plan a wedding.

That’s where we come in; to help ease the pressure, give you advice and look after all the logistics so you can enjoy your wedding journey in its entirety.
The Signature Planning package is required for all weddings booked through Byron Bay Weddings with the option for additional assistance if required.
