Yes.  You can choose to have both your ceremony and reception with us, or your ceremony can be held at one of the beautiful locations around Nambucca Heads that we would be happy to suggest for you.  

Although having your ceremony in our garden area overlooking the lake is beautiful, sometimes the weather just doesn't suit.  We have an alternative option for indoor ceremonies where we can zone an area with curtains to create a wedding backdrop.  We would be happy to share images of previous weddings where this has been used,

Of course - that's what we do best!  We can create a multi-day wedding exclusively for you, your family and your guests to enjoy all the spaces the resort has to offer - including gym, pool, spa, steam room and pool bar.  We can organise a bbq or pool party the night prior, your bridal can have a pamper session in the day spa - options are endless.  The best thing is, your nearest and dearest all get to meet each other prior to your big day, meaning everyone is relaxed and ready to enjoy your wedding.

We didn't just have a wedding day, we had a wedding weekend! The Cubana Resort accommodated all of our guests on site so we were able to mingle by the pool for Friday night drinks, get ready with our friends and family on the day and debrief over a hot recovery breakfast on Sunday. Our guests were always entertained; utilising the facilities such as the pool, sauna, bikes and kayaks to create a vacation atmosphere. The decor of the venue was absolutely unique and vibrant so that we didn't need to do much styling. The beautiful garden setting had everything we needed for a picturesque ceremony and the Havana decor in the restaurant popped with colour for our dinner and dancefloor. Post ceremony, we were provided with a stunningly large charcuterie board in the garden, along with lawn games in the sun for the guests to enjoy whilst we had our photos taken around the site. We opted for a seasonal sit-down meal in the restaurant which we had the pleasure of tasting and with the chef prior to our wedding day. Our favourites were the truffle gnocchi and barramundi yellow curry! Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better venue to host our wedding weekend!

Thank you Bronte for your fantastic review. We loved hosting you, Ciaran and all your family & friends over the weekend. You both looked stunning and we were so happy the sun was shining all day - it made for some perfect photo opportunities. Well done on the playlist you created - the dance floor was heaving the whole night. We hope that you enjoyed your honeymoon and look forward to welcoming you back to the Cubana again soon.
