Melissa and James’ wedding seemed as though it was going to be wet, wet, wet and for most of the day it was. There were glimpses of sunshine throughout the morning, followed by showers and then a little more sunshine. Fig Tree was set up for an outdoor ceremony and the staff were constantly keeping an eye on local radars to navigate the day through the weather. With just a short delay, the ceremony took place and for a while we couldn’t have asked for better conditions. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, birds were singing and circling overhead and there was even a rainbow shining over Byron Bay. It was simply beautiful!
The relief that the break in the weather provided, combined with the light-hearted, charismatic and often humorous delivery of the service by Benjamin Carlyle, meant that everyone’s spirits were lifted and much of the ceremony was spent in bouts of laughter.
The team at Fig Treet Restaurant & Rooms once again provided exceptional service throughout the entire day and the reception was an absolute blast!
