Kim & Nathan’s Kingscliff Wedding

Love was in the air at Babalou when the beautiful couple, Kim & Nathan tied the knot and celebrated the start of their wonderful marriage with a stunning reception at our coastal wedding venue.

The Reception: Babalou Weddings & Events

At Babalou, guests were greeted with free-flowing flutes of sparkling, chardonnay and other delights included in the premium beverage package. Lush hanging plants by The Borrowed Nursery and a barrel trestle table for the guest book added a rustic feel.

Quaint high bars and stools, peacock chairs, and elegant lounges were scattered throughout the room, providing guests plenty of seating as well as space to move around. Taking centre stage on the guest tables were the menus, designed with delicate touches by The Wondery. Geometric rose-gold pendant lights, courtesy of AVideas, brought extra warmth into the reception venue as day turned to night.

Capturing all the special moments in perfect resolution was wedding photographer Brenden from FigTree Photography, whose brilliant shots showcased Kim’s wedding dress, designed by Grace Loves Lace, in all its beauty. Accompanying Brenden was Gold Bear Films’ Mike and Rich, who caught all the wondrous times and speeches.

Soon after the bridal party’s entry, came the entrée, an alternate drop of indulgent Maraschino cherry pork belly with snow pea, radish, and jus alongside salt and pepper calamari with lime aioli and green apple salad.

Following the entrée came delicious pan-seared barramundi accompanied by wilted greens, cherry tomatoes, kipfler potatoes and vanilla butter, as well as 12-hour braised lamb shoulder, truffled mash, wilted spinach, fennel, rocket and black beer jus.

The courses finished on a sweet note with a picturesque traditional wedding cake created by Maree Hilton. Standing on a single wine barrel, the cake was iced to perfection and adorned with soft pink and pastel florals.
