Deux Belettes is a little bit of the French countryside in the Byron Hinterland. Your breath will be taken away from the minute you drive down the tree lined driveway (which is equally stunning in winter, with the bare branches against blue sky), and it won’t stop there.
It’s the perfect spot for a long, family style table of up to 40 people, or you can erect a marquee on the lawn for bigger affairs up to 100 guests. The covered archway can be hung with vintage chandeliers (one that’s over 300 years old), sourced from antique stores during the owners’ regular visits to France. You can take your pick of ceremony and reception locations on the property, with an outlook to suit any style of shindig.
There’s so many parts of the venue to take stunning photos and it is an ideal location for brides who are looking to hold all of their celebrations in one place. Make sure your photographer takes a snap on the bridge over the creek, under the chapel with the sun setting, and on the verandah overlooking the valley.
Deux Belettes is also a bed and breakfast, perfect for the bride and her maids to stay the night before the wedding, and wake up to breakfast sourced from the grounds surrounding the venue. Organic orange juice and farm fresh eggs will keep you nourished for your big day ahead! There’s also a spot for the boys to regroup before the ceremony, before greeting your guests.
Deux Belettes only hosts 12 weddings per year, and takes bookings up to a year in advance. You’ll be able to cater the event completely to match all of your wildest fantasies, so make sure you consider food, hire, and lighting – although with a venue this pretty, you won’t need much in the way of decorations!
If you’re looking to wow your guests, but still have your wedding feel intimate and secluded, Deux Belettes is a must see.
