VENUE SPOTLIGHT – YABBALOUMBA RETREAT – SUNSHINE COAST HINTERLAND
FEATURING REAL WEDDINGS
If you are after a classic rustic venue with a barn, beautiful outdoor ceremony spaces, onsite accommodation and lush rolling hills, Yabbaloumba may be the perfect venue for your wedding. Yabbaloumba Retreat is a working farm located 6km from Kenilworth and you have access to the 4 onsite private cottages or the smaller 7 “shed quarters”. Guests can also camp onsite, so everyone can have a great time. The venue can cater to up to 200 guests.
The wedding venue is managed by L&L Co Events and they offer several ceremony spaces from the most popular, arbour by the creek, to rolling lawns, to the upper arbour near the barn, affectionately referred to as “the shed”. The are many spots perfect for the post ceremony photos – with 200 acres; the creeks, lake and lots of romantic nooks to get some amazing shots of the Conondale Ranges.
Here are some recent real weddings we have done at the venue for some inspiration for your day.

Due to the rustic feel at the venue and the existing wagon wheel light fittings in the barn, we tend to do a more textural design for the wedding flowers. Keeping in mind that the lower arbour by the creek is oversized and if you choose add florals to this; they need to also be over oversized to suit its height and width. But we have a few weddings coming up with real POPs of colour. We can not wait to show you them in 2023.
In the next wedding of Kaitlyn and Jonny we created a bespoke ceremony design to include some tall freestanding plinths in addition the arbour florals, these could then easily be transferred as floral pillars to the reception space.

We got to utilise the round tables for Tanika and Clinton’s wedding creating central floral clouds that can be gifted at the end of the night.

Ben and Rach utilised the upper arbour near the barn for their ceremony overlooking the lake and easy for guests to meander over to the reception/cocktail space. We did a mix of flat lay foliage and posies along the long tables.
