Our packages are so easy you can even outsource the organising like Jess and Rikki did. We didn’t actually speak with Jess or Rikki until the day of their wedding! Jess’ sister Katilin was the contact person for intimate ceremony at Broken Head earlier this month.
Choosing our Barefoot Collection with family members and Rikki’s best friend witnessing the nuptials. Rikki hates having his photo taken and joked that we would only be permitted to take a maximum of three photos of their elopement! Saying this was the total number of photos the couple had of the two of them in over 8 years together. Needless to say we snuck in a few more than three, more like 153, stunning images in the gorgeous soft light of the overcast day in Byron Bay.
Upgrading their package to include hair and make up for the ladies, we seemed too good to be true for Jess and Katilin’s dad who thought we were a scam! Katilin even writing us a beautiful review for all the other dad’s who don’t trust online businesses (lol). To read her review click here.
Childhood sweethearts Eliza and Kamren met at the local corner shop. As couple who enjoy the outdoors, they chose the perfect location for their Tweed Coast Wedding on the beach at Broken Head. Booking our popular “Micro Wedding” Package which allows couples to create a luxury wedding for up to 40 guests and gives them access to our entire team of vendors.
Choosing to stay at our partnered private property Pavillions 2 @ Broken Head. A short distance to their styled ceremony location at Broken head beach. While Eliza and Kamren’s guests stayed at Broken Head Holiday Park located right at the entrance to the beach.
This Luxe ceremony was such a fun family affair with close family and friends in attendance, it was one of our largest post-COVID weddings to date. We captured some fun family shots with Eliza and Kamren’s three children playing and having fun in front of the camera.
We love it when our whole Team are involved in a wedding! Eliza and Kamren upgraded their package to include: a live musician for the ceremony and reception, videographer, hair and makeup for all the ladies, ceremony styling which included reception table and kids area on the grass, and las but not least a gorgeous wedding cake!

Ellyn and Jack have known each other since school and decided to elope to one of our favourite locations at Broken Head in Byron Bay. Ellyn has been following Luxe Elopements on social media for a long time, which made us feel just like family on the day. We were even lucky enough to share the experience of watching a pod of dolphins surfing the waves behind us, and an epic rainbow giving a touch of magic to our images on the day.
Choosing to get married with just two witnesses Ellyn and Jack’s ceremony was filled with laughter and fun, popping a bottle of champagne after the ceremony. We love when couples add their own personal touches to their elopements. Ellyn and Jack wanted Jack’s dad, who has passed away, to be a part of their special day so Ellyn carried some photos of him in her bouquet.
Ellyn was Rockstar bride breaking with tradition with gorgeous dark lips and was styled to perfection for the beach elopement with diamanté and pearl barefoot soles. Broken Head turned on the golden light for our portraits after the ceremony, Ellyn even venturing bravely into the water embracing the mermaid tail on her gown.

Brittany and Tom had planned on having a larger wedding, but like so many couples in 2020 they were forced to rethink their wedding plans (thanks COVID), ultimately deciding to elope to Broken Head in Northern New South Wales.
It is considered good luck to have rain on your wedding day and it rained during the day and in true Byron Bay style the heavens opens for Brittany and Tom’s ceremony. So, we’re sure they will have so much luck going into their married life. On the plus side the 90% cloud coverage created a natural “filter” with soft, flattering light for our photos.
After their ceremony, Brittany and Tom had decided to book a styled picnic from @klaras_house to enjoy together. James from @karuahmusic serenaded the newlyweds during their beachside picnic setting the mood for romantic break between the ceremony and photos.
James, who played melodies during the ceremony, kept the romantic mood going with his beautiful melodies playing softly on the breeze as we walked along the ‘Three Siters Track’ for the couple’s portraits. We love using the headland at the end of the track for our wedding portraits, the vistas are truly breathtaking. However, as this area is Aboriginal land we are unable to perform ceremonies here, but the portraits are always magical. While we didn’t get a Golden sunset, the soft light was spectacular on the beach and on the cliffs at the end of the ‘Three Sisters Track’.

Every bit the modern couple Charisse and Robbie met online while on holiday in the Philippines. Meeting for the first time in person 4 months after connecting online! That first hug in the airport sealed the deal for both Charisse and Robbie. For three years Robbie and Charisse were in a long-distance relationship, communicating online and only seeing each other once every few months building a strong foundation for marriage.
Charisse and Robbie were able to share their Byron Bay Wedding with international family who weren’t able to travel via live stream. The couple were joined by small but lively group of friends who were able to share their joy on their wedding day. The guests were heaps of fun jumping and laughing, for our group photos after the ceremony.
The couple chose to elope in Byron Bay, the day was warm and windy with a storm rolling in as we meandered along the 750m long “Three Sisters Track” at Broken Head. A perfect location for truly breathtaking portraits. Sometimes the wind can be quite cool on the cliffs of Broken Head, but Charisse was prepared, bringing with her a handmade wedding jacket with “Just Married” on the back, a beautiful personal touch to their elopement.
