To ease your travel worries, various transportation options await, including shuttle services, helicopters, corporate taxis, and chic limousines (not the extra-long ones). Your journey sets the tone for the magic that awaits, culminating in sublime sunset and sea views over the majestic black sands of Bethells Beach, extending to the vast and dramatic Tasman Sea.

Trude, your chosen marriage or civil union celebrant, adds a unique touch to your ceremony, weaving creativity into a personalized narrative that unfolds into memories cherished forever. Keep in mind that you’ll need a minimum of three days to file and receive your ‘Intended Marriage license,’ so plan accordingly, allowing a generous seven working days.

The culinary delights at your celebration are curated by Chef Rene from Maarte Catering. Renowned for superb dining experiences, Rene collaborates with you to personalize your menu, ensuring a feast that reflects your tastes and preferences.

For the aesthetic details, from casual to formal bouquets, aisle decorations, and arches, the team at Bethells Beach has you covered. Trude, who even created a bouquet for a recent shoot to the bride’s specifications, ensures that every detail aligns with your vision.

Surrounded by nature, the venue exudes a creative and relaxed ambience, fostering an atmosphere that’s bound to create happy memories. Throughout the planning process, Trude, John, and the dedicated team offer unwavering support, adding finishing touches and inspiration to your day.
