The Grand Exotic is a sensory experience from start to finish – quite unlike any other North Coast wedding venue. From the moment you arrive, you are welcomed by an explosion of colour, designed and created from a collection of ancient architectural features found and imported from around the world, including Indian Palace doors and columns. Feast your eyes on embossed and hand painted floors and walls, vintage décor, and stained glass windows. The attention to detail is extraordinary, and there is little need for additional decorating. However for those who wish to add their own personal touch, the options are limitless.

The building exterior will captivate you with its iconic pink tin walls and verdigris dome, and once you step inside under the grand triple volume dome, you will be transported to a place of industrial chic and elegance. There are crystal chandeliers, Moroccan lights, and vintage collectables adorning this unique space. The adjacent picturesque “Secret Garden” and water feature brings tranquility and balance to this visual extravanganza.

This exquisite North Coast wedding venue has been designed to consider the practicalities of providing different options for all weather conditions, and your entire wedding can take place indoors in the event of rain.  Your wedding ceremony can either be hosted on the front lawns, or within the magnificent Dome, followed by a stylish reception in The Grand Hall.

    Sarah Owen and Curt Wolff have created a stylishly eclectic space, which awes, with its vibrant colours and imaginative decor. It’s a thrilling assault on the senses, and once there, we didn’t want to leave… Excellent food, great service, and a feeling of having found a slice of paradise on earth.
