Questions and Answers

What time is ceremony & reception usually?

Barefoot Beach Weddings

The ceremony is no earlier than 4:30 pm with the reception beginning immediately after at around 5 pm. Times are flexible beyond 4:30pm and we can create a schedule that suits your plans.

Is there another venue nearby we can send guests during photo time?

Barefoot Beach Weddings

A huge bonus of our wedding's are that the reception can begin immediately following the excitement of the ceremony and guests don't need to go anywhere! We have amazing locations including limestone cliffs and rugged coast line right at the venue which means you don't need to travel far from your guests and we have a special sunset picture plan to make capturing all the special beach wedding photos very easy. However, yes, shoud you require another venue The Common is a bar / bistro / restaurant just 400m from The White Elephant. Guests can enjoy a drink and nibble on the deck or play a game of pool inside whilst they wait. 

What happens if it rains on my wedding day?

Barefoot Beach Weddings

Depending on your guest numbers we have the option to set up indoors for both reception and ceremony if the weather doesn’t allow for either to be outside. In the event your numbers are bigger than what can be held within the restaurant a marquee can be arranged. 

Do you cater for dietary requirements?

Barefoot Beach Weddings

Our menu caters for a range of dietary requirements including diary free, gluten-free, no onion/garlic, vegan & vegetarian. It is your responsibility to determine the dietary requirements of your guests and select menu options accordingly. We can create entire vegetarian menus if that is preferred.

We do not cater to individual guest  requests for canapé items, for a charge of $40pp we can arrange main dishes to specific dietary requests where options for canapé are not available/limited. Specific dietary items selected from the canapé options will form part of your overall menu and be served to all guests. For further clarification please speak to our wedding coordinator.

We had so much fun on our wedding day thanks to the team at BBW! Sam, Jazz and the staff on the day/evening were beyond accommodating, from dietary requests to drink choices, and especially when we were forced to postpone by a day due to a snap COVID-19 lockdown. They made us feel confident that everything was in their very capable hands. The venue was perfect for our relaxed wedding vibe, and it was amazing to just turn up in the afternoon with everything looking fabulous, party away the evening and walk back to our accommodation at the end of the night. The food was AMAZING and our guests couldn't stop raving about it for weeks afterwards. For two people who rarely splash out we can definitely say our wedding was worth every penny and we wouldn't have changed a thing.

Whilst covid kept us all on our toes everything came together and it was our pleasure to host your wedding day. We are so glad to hear you wouldn't change a thing, that's what we aim for! xx

Sam from barefoot beach weddings was an absolute delight to deal with. She was incredible at putting me at ease and helping us with every process of organising our wedding. Everyone tells you that organising a wedding is so stressful but I can say thanks to this amazing team, I was far from stressed. It was all organised for me and my day was perfect. Thank you again Sam I really appreciate you helping to make our day amazing.

Barefoot Beach Weddings  

You are very welcome Sarah! Weddings definitely shouldn't be stressful, they are so much more fun when they aren't! xx

WOW.. Still speechless from the fantastic service and support from all the team at BBW. We had some challenges leading up to our day, but the team went above and beyond to deliver a day that was beyond amazing! A massive heart felt thankyou to Sam, our wedding organiser who was by my side every step of the way, she never faltered and delivered exceptional service that is second to none. To the White Elephant Team on the day (especially Jaz and Teddy), what super stars ! We had so many comments on how fantastic the service was, boy did you guys deliver. If you are looking for a memorable barefoot beach wedding this is the ONLY venue in WA that can deliver all your hearts desires. Oh, and the food was spectacular! 5 Stars huh, I would give them 10 if I could!

Barefoot Beach Weddings  

Awww thanks :) Nothing made us happier than knowing that you guys had made it to your wedding day! It was such a long time coming and we are so thrilled for how everything turned out for your special day. Pop back and visit soon! xx

We chose barefoot beach weddings for our Margaret River Region wedding because not only did we want to get married by the ocean, but we wanted a venue that took care of everything for us. Did we hit the jackpot with BBW! From the moment I spoke to Sam I knew we'd found what we were looking for. The booking process was seamless and when they told us about their "all in one" vendor package we were completely sold. This took all the stress out of getting quotes, sending multiple deposits and keeping track. Kirby, the venue coordinator was absolutely amazing. She made sure everything was taken care up on the lead up to and on the day of our wedding. We felt so relaxed knowing she was at the wheel. I can't recommend BBW enough - they honestly made our dreams come true. Thank you so much team!

We had the most perfect day and it was all thanks to the team at BBW! We had a few hiccups leading up to the day but the team went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly. A big thanks to Kirby and Sam who were so easy to communicate with and did everything they could to make sure it was everything we wanted and more! I can't express how amazing it was. To the team at BBW and The White Elephant Cafe - Thank you!!!

26 Feb 2022

Amazing company to deal with whilst planning our beach wedding which was honestly a dream come true. Wonderful venue, amazing food, professional and friendly staff. Could not have asked for more!

19 Feb 2022

Our wedding coordinating process was seamless with the endless help of Kirby. She was there for us every step of the way and communication was always clear and prompt. Nothing was ever too much to manage. The food, staff service, organisation of the event, and venue were absolutely incredible and our guests complimented every aspect of the reception. We had quite a few guests with food allergies and they were all well taken care of. Could not fault a single thing. Would highly recommend Barefoot Beach Weddings to anyone. Thank you again for such a special day! Raylene and Michael :)

I would recommend in a heart beat, Barefoot Beach Weddings to anyone! Sam Janssen in particular was such a pleasure to deal with - nothing was ever an issue and on the day everything was exactly how I planned and pictured. Both my husband and I were impressed with everything from start to finish on the day, and would highly recommend BBW to anyone wishing to book a wedding in the South West region.

Barefoot Beach Weddings  

Thanks Kelly! We absolutely loved kicking off our season with you guys after such a rough 2020!! You were so wonderfully cruisy to work with and our crew had lots of fun hosting you and your guests! Take care xx

28 Feb 2020

I can't thank Sam and the team at Barefoot Beach Weddings enough for all they did to make our day run smoothly. Sam even messaged the day before the wedding to make sure there wasn't anything small stressing me out that she could help with. Special thanks to Jaz who went above and beyond for us on the day, she was one of the family by the end of the night. We had cocktail canape for 130 people and everyone commented on how good the food was, especially the late night sliders! The venue is utterly beautiful and doesn't need much decorating as the beach setting makes it truly unique. The laid back vibe was something we really wanted for our wedding day and we couldn't have been happier with how our day turned out. I can't recommend this place enough if you are after a beach wedding down south this is the place your looking for! Thank you again BBW!

Barefoot Beach Weddings  

How good are the sliders?! And they arrive perfectly, just when guests think the food is done... boom! Mini burgers! Thank you for your kind words, you guys were so easy to work with and so perfectly suited to that laid back vibe xx

12 Feb 2020

We were absolutely blow away by the everything. Jazz and her team treated us so well the entire reception the ceremony was beautifully set up and when a storm came in the team worked swiftly to change the layout and have everyone inside until it eventually passed. Every step of the way the team was diligent, professional, and just an overall dream to work with.

Barefoot Beach Weddings  

Nothing like a passing storm to test the skills of our crew!! Thank you to you both. We just loved working with you and Richie and our crew had so much fun with you both and your fabulous friends and family celebrating your wedding day. Please visit next time you are down south and say hi xx

11 Jan 2020

Words truly can’t explain how amazing Sam and the team were. We had the wedding of our dreams thanks to BBW. Sam was truly amazing to work with and went above and beyond for us. We will be forever grateful for what the team and Sam did for us xx

Barefoot Beach Weddings  

It was a pleasure working with you to bring together your valentines wedding plans! You were so organised so early on it made our job very easy! Thanks for picking us for your special day! xx

14 Dec 2019

We had the best night! The Barefoot Beach Weddings crew were so easy to work with and really went the extra mile to put on a great show! The venue was picture perfect for a cocktail style wedding, very relaxed with an amazing view. Jazz made the whole day run smoothly, AJ's food was delicious, DJ's Lee and Anita filled the dance floor and we had so much fun having photos with Tom. Thankyou so much BBW!

Barefoot Beach Weddings  

Thanks Ellie! Was lots of fun planning with you and creating your ideal menu with all those yummy oysters!! You guys were so cruisy and friendly and the whole crew enjoyed getting to know you both. Looking forward to continuing to see your faces around the cafe as you're officially now 'mates' :) xx

Our wedding at the White Elephant Café was everything we had ever dreamed of and more. The venue is absolutely stunning and the service from Sam, Jazz and the BBW crew was exceptional. From our very first conversation with Sam I knew we were in good hands, she was organised, helpful and made the planning process a breeze. On the day of the wedding Jazzy was amazing and we didn’t have to worry about a single thing. All of our guests are still raving about the delicious food and we received comments that it was the best that they had ever had at a wedding. Everyone always says that your wedding is the best day of your life but our day far exceeded our expectations, we are beyond grateful for everything BBW did to help make our day so special and could not recommend them highly enough.

Barefoot Beach Weddings  

To hear our crew was able to exceed your expectations is truly fabulous Lauren :) And to know that your wedding day was everything you had dreamed of and more means that we have done our jobs, which for us is easy given how much we love a wedding day! It was a pleasure to take this journey with you, we honestly loved hosting your gorgeous family and friends and seeing how happy you and Michael were on your special day. Please visit again soon xx

29 Nov 2019

Wow! BBW were totally amazing on all fronts. Sam the wedding planner was an absolute pleasure to deal with, she made it an extremely stress-free process and knows good suppliers to recommend for you. The venue is beyond amazing. The location perfectly fit my beach wedding vibe, but still elegant and a bit fancy! The food was phenomenal, I had complete trust in the menu without even tasting it first. But on the night it was confirmed, all our guests were raving about the food for weeks after! Our experience with BBW and white elephant met all our expectations and more and we would not hesitate to recommend them.

23 Nov 2019

Don’t be deceived by the cafe appearance of this venue. It transforms into a European dream supported by amazing staff and that stunning scenery and sunset. We had the majority of our 110 guests travel over from Sydney and they have raved about the venue and the amazing food which was served cocktail style. From start to finish they were amazing, assisting through set up, alleviating concerns and blowing us away on the day! I would highly recommend Barefoot beach weddings!

Barefoot Beach Weddings  

Beach cafe by day, European dream wedding venue by night! Love it! Thanks Ellen :) We loved showing off our venue and all we offer to your East coast family and friends and are thrilled to hear how impressed they were. Thanks to you and Nick for sharing your special day with us and trusting us to take care of everything for you :) Our crew had so much fun working with you in the lead up and on the day. Best wishes to you both for many years ahead creating loads more special memories xx
