Small wedding ceremonies
The ultimate in romantic weddings or commitment ceremonies – surrounded by spectacular rainforest
As a unique romantic rainforest wedding ceremony venue, Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat provides the perfect setting for your special day. As we are a private, tranquil retreat, we are only able to host very small weddings, ranging from just the bride, groom, celebrant and witnesses up to the inclusion of a few close friends and family members - a maximum of 10 people in all.
Alternatively if you book all of the accommodation at the retreat, then more can attend the ceremony.
We have a variety of unique locations for your ceremony. You may wish to be married on the banks of our pristine creek under a 400-year-old Blue Quandong Fig – or on our expansive lawn surrounded by rainforest trees with the most magnificent view of the world heritage-listed Mount Springbrook.
Unfortunately, however, we are unable to cater for any receptions. Many couples make their own arrangements or book a local restaurant in Murwillumbah or another nearby town for the reception.
Dear Mark and the team,
Thank you so much for an amazing time at Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and Crystal Creek just made it extra special.
We will definitely be back as will our witnesses who were blown away.
Thank you again the most special day of our lives was perfect and truly unforgettable.
– Damian and Clare
