WEDDINGS AT BIRCH // Unique, Intimate And Super-Stylish
May 10, 2019
From the moment BIRCH opened its doors in The Highlands, the team became well-known for their creative approach to food, slick hospitality and service, and their super-stylish interiors. Now BIRCH is extending their unique offering to couples keen to tie the knot with the introduction of Weddings @ BIRCH.
We were lucky enough to be invited to the BIRCH Wedding Showcase and to be honest…..our jaws are still on the floor.
Just have a look at this……..
Intimate and Unique
Perfect for smaller style weddings, BIRCH can cater for up to 50 guests seated and 70 guests standing. They can host the ceremony, pre-dinner drinks and the reception using the beautiful outdoor courtyard and of course, the stunning restaurant.
“BIRCH is an ideal venue for creating a unique and intimate wedding experience,” says owner, Renee Wallace.
“It doesn’t matter whether it’s a sit-down reception in the restaurant or a cocktail party with gorgeous lighting and decor in the courtyard, our focus is on providing a high quality and sophisticated experience for all guests.”
Styling and Design
The BIRCH team understand every couple and every wedding is different. This value is reflected in their approach to styling the space.
“We work with couples to design, create and tailor a truly bespoke experience for them,” Renee says.
“Something that reflects who they are, their own style and of course, something that connects with all their guests. Weddings should be a true reflection of the personality of that couple. We help them create a space where they feel comfortable and feel as though they belong.”
Stunning florals, table centrepieces, all the wedding stationary (invites, table setting, order of service - the works) and other styling features are just the beginning. We are loving the bridal table wall hanging options BIRCH has available (and it’s complimentary!) or you can work with BIRCH’s designer to create your own bespoke wall hanging. Ah-mayyy-zing!
Food and Wine
Head chef, Ben Bamford is a passionate and creative force in the BIRCH kitchen. His diverse experience – from five star hotels in the United Kingdom to hatted restaurants in North Queensland – has led him to The Highlands. And we’re all very happy about that!
Ben will create a dynamic and seasonally driven wedding menu with a strong focus on fresh, local and seasonal produce.
“I’ve always created dishes from whatever I can get locally. Local produce tastes better, it’s as simple as that. Sustainable local produce is a good thing and we’re lucky to have so many fantastic farmers and producers here in The Highlands,” says Ben.
The importance of creating a bespoke and tailored wedding experience for their clients is reflected in the dining package options available. From a five course degustation menu to the beautiful simplicity of canapes and a delicious main meal, BIRCH will work with couples to create a gourmet experience that suits the personality and style of the event.
And of course, creative cocktails, bubbles and delicious local wines feature in the many beverage package options available too. Cheers!
Full Wedding Co-ordination Service
It’s not until you are right in the trenches of organising a wedding that you become aware of how many elements there is to creating the perfect day, right?? Trust us! We’ve been there!
The BIRCH team want to take that burden away from you, so part of their bespoke wedding offering is access to a full wedding co-ordination service. Photographers, musicians, cake designers, hair stylists, make-up artists, florists and floral designers, cars, celebrants, gift suppliers…..I know, we need to sit down just reading that! BIRCH has their finger on the pulse of anything and everything wedding-y (is so a word!) in the Southern Highlands.
They have an awesome list of amazing and super talented artists, suppliers, craftspersons, makers and a few other people that will make your wedding event truly unique.
You know what? Seeing what BIRCH has to offer is enough to make us want to renew our vows and doing it all over again! Whos' in?!
