Wedding Yamba Golf & Country Club

Recently we spoke with Emma and Aaron who shared their wedding day with us in October 2017.

We asked them about the big day and their experience with the Club, read our chat below:


When was your wedding day? 

Our wedding was on Saturday 21st October 2017. We picked Yamba for our Wedding as Aaron and I had our first date in Yamba at Barbaresco’s. We fell in love with Yamba the moment we arrived and we wouldn’t have wanted to get married anywhere else. It was great to also showcase what Yamba has to offer to our QLD family who were not familiar with the location.


How many guests did you have at your wedding?

We had 68 adults and 7 children


In the search for a wedding venue did you look at a lot of options?  What influenced your choice in deciding on Yamba Golf & Country Club?

We considered all the options available in Yamba ranging from doing it all yourself and having everything done for you. We found that the golf club was the best of both worlds. The golf deck is the perfect setting to create the wedding of your dreams – as it is modern, crisp and has clean lines allowing the vision for your wedding to shine through.  The icing on the cake was Jo – she listened to what we wanted for our wedding and provided us with the best advice based on her experience to achieve this. She was a pleasure to deal with from our very first meeting.


Can you tell us a little bit about your wedding planning experience with Yamba Golf & Country Club?

Planning a wedding in Yamba was  breeze. I live in Sydney so was only able to visit Yamba once to meet everyone and confirm arrangements. The golf club was a pleasure to work with extremely easy going with no question or request too hard. The majority of plans were finalised well in advance to ensure we could relax and enjoy the days leading up to the wedding. I was 100% confident they had everything under control.


How did the day go? Was it everything you hoped for?

The wedding day was the best day of my life – it was so much better than I ever expected. A lot of things actually went wrong on the day; it rained, our celebrant forgot to exchange rings and a few other things but they all just made the day even more memorable.

Aaron and I spent a lot of time creating the things that made the day unique to us; like our Oyster Bar to highlight Yamba seafood, our photo ladder to show us growing up and our homemade Jerky wedding favours. Jo made sure all of these important little details came together on the day. The food and the service on the night from the team was also exceptional with guests raving about the food.


What advice would you give other couples considering Yamba for their upcoming wedding?

All the wedding vendors in Yamba are extremely professional, experienced and deliver quality service. As everyone knows each other they work together seamlessly to create a magical day for their couples. It was great peace of mind to know that I didn’t have to make all the connections. I believe it is the people of Yamba that make it an idyllic wedding location and the beaches to boot of course. We feel very lucky to have had our wedding day in Yamba and have had the opportunity to meet some truly lovely people.


Thanks Emma!
