THE ORCHARD ESTATE
The Orchard Estate is set on a macadamia nut orchard situated in the picturesque Byron Bay hinterland. Set across 100 acres, this premium restaurant (which only offers limited availability for weddings) overlooks the spectacular Nightcap mountain range and stands alone, offering complete privacy and serenity.
As an architecturally impressive structure, The Orchard Estate is as stunning as it is user-friendly. The interiors of the modern barn provide the ultimate blank canvas to style your wedding, event or pop-up dinner, presenting polished concrete floors, white walls and dark framing.
The sublime beauty of this landscape offers the best backdrop for your ceremony and photographs. A gentle walk throughout the macadamia orchard or witnessing a golden sunset from the rolling hills, capturing the perfect moment is easily done. Having your photos taken on-site also allows for more time to enjoy the company of your loved ones!

WEDDING PLANNING OPTIONS
We know how overwhelming it is to plan a wedding. There’s so many elements that need to be decided on such as hire items, lighting, menus, floor plans, seating charts, on the day supplier schedule, supplier choices, transport, and styling just to name a few! 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.
We have a range of different wedding planning packages dependant on your needs and budget. Once planned, one of our incredible wedding day coordinators will be there to run your day exactly as planned so it's executed flawlessly and to ease any stress on the day.
Month Out Coordination - This package is designed for couples who wish to do most of the wedding planning themselves but want to ensure everything runs as planned and there's no issues on the day.
Signature Planning Package - This option is designed for couples who would still like control over their wedding planning but would love assistance to look after all the finer details and logistics that can become overwhelming.
Full Planning Package - This option is perfect for those who purely want to be presented with information, answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to one person and then pay the invoice at each stage of completion. This is a great option if you are super busy and can’t commit much time to your planning, or perhaps based overseas and want the ease of having one point of contact.
One of the most important elements of your wedding day will be the opportunity to enjoy exceptional food with your nearest and dearest in a beautiful setting.
We work with two of the region’s award winning caterers – Fig Tree Restaurant and Feast Events. They have catered over 1000 weddings in their time and their food and service is incredible!
Each wedding couple is invited to the Fig Tree Restaurant for a complimentary tasting dinner before their wedding day. This allows them to sample the food and service they will provide at The Orchard Estate before the big day.
FIG TREE MENU - Enjoy a lavish banquet of tasting menu at your reception.
FEAST EVENTS MENU - the festive option. Think themed food bars, cocktails and canapés.
The Orchard Estate is a BYO venue. How good is that?!
