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!

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’.

Christina and Byron met each other at school after a friend introduced them, their first official date, at 14 (awwww) was at a local park. Now 10 years on the couple have two beautiful children together and one on the way.
Initially booking a Byron Bay wedding, but with Byron opening up around the same time all the accommodation was booked. So the couple elected to book an Airbnb in near by Murwillumbah along the river and an easy 15 minute drive to Cabarita Cove.
Cabarita Cove is a small, picturesque bay located nearby to Australia’s number one rated beach Cabarita. The Cove is one of our favourite places to hold an elopement or wedding ceremony. Electing to get married with just them and their two children, the ceremony was nestled on Cabarita Cove Beach with the Panama trees and the headland providing natural privacy and a beautiful backdrop to the celebration.
After the ceremony and some shots on the beach we meandered along the easy walk (even for the children) to the Caba headland. The Golden Light from the Headland to take in the spectacular views a combinations that creates magical portraits.
Locals to the Gold Coast area Lauri and Levi were looking for a simple Byron Bay elopement with just immediate family and their gorgeous little girl, Millie. The couple chose Signature Collection with styled ceremony package, and selected our newest property, Bramblewood on the Tweed Coast as the venue for their laidback wedding.
Located in the Tweed Valley this venue gives couples spectacular ocean views from Coolangatta all the way to Surfers Paradise! The rolling hills of this quintessential farm venue meant photography, done by yours truly, meant that we had quite the adventure getting photos and videography to capture the beautiful afternoon sun. Martin and I jumped in the back of Lauri and Levi’s car and we followed Bramblewood owner Daniel through cow paddocks and up to the top of the ridge for some epic sunset portraits.
Lauri and Levi’s first date was a picnic at Brunsweck Heads. Levi organised the date, but it turns out he didn’t really organise very much forgetting to bring a rug or any food or drinks. Instead getting fish and chips and sitting on the grass to eat. The images from their wedding pay homage to their first date. Sitting on a log in a grassy field imagining their lives together.
Congratulations Lauri and Levi!

Not everyone who elopes to Byron Bay likes the feel of sand between their toes on their wedding day! After postponing their wedding from May due to COVID, Mandy and Chris were married on the grass at Hastings Point, because Mandy doesn’t like sand, and so their fur baby Axle could be witness to the ceremony.
Mandy, a vet herself, wanted to make sure Axle would be a part of their Byron Bay wedding. As no other humans were invited (Thanks COVID) Mandy and Chris hired a dog trainer from @downunderdogtrainer to entertain Axle during the ceremony.
Pausing to pose for a selfie to send to those humans who weren’t invited, after the ceremony, Mandy and Chris were blessed with an ah-mazing sunset that even shone with a giant love heart glowing in the background of one of their photos.
Mandy and Chris loved the location of their elopement so much they plan to return to celebrate their anniversary at Myocum at Hastings Point in 2021. We hope to see you then and hear all about your married life.
Caitlin wore a Cinderella inspired blue dress with to-die-for blue velvet heels! Her flowers, by @sevenbloomscasuarina, created a dramatic contrast using bright blooms in pink, peach and purples. Celebrant Leisa from @ceremoniesbyleisa ensured everyone was properly sanitised during the signing of the official paperwork, using a nearby rock as the official signing table. Anthony looking pretty happy with his new wife giving everyone the two thumbs up after signing.
As the sunset, Caitlin and Anthony added a personal touch to their wedding day photos Anthony brought his fishing rod along to use in some of the portraits as an inside joke with Caitlin, as he is always ‘Gone Fishing’. Personal touches like these are a fun addition to more traditional wedding images, especially when you have a beautiful backdrop such as those found in Byron Bay and the southern Gold Coast.

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.

Amanda and Rahul met through a friend who had organised a group of friends to do the colour run. Rahul ran up to Amanda and used Joey from Friends line “How you doin?” They chased each other all day, throwing paint and rolling downhills. The run lead to drinks and lunch at the pub and eventually, they looked around to find they were the only ones left, not wanting the day to end.
Eloping from Sydney on the morning of Amanda and Rahul’s wedding it looked like it would rain, but the weatherman promised we would see sunny skies in the afternoon. Typical Byron Bay weather and perfect for those elopement photos and videography. On the cliffs of Broken Head, we knew the clouds would be the perfect backdrop for some dramatic images!
While the sun didn’t make an appearance, Amanda looked beautiful in a traditional sari sent from her new Mother-in-law in India, the striking colour a stunning contrast to the natural beach colours. Amanda further included Rahul’s Indian background wearing traditional white henna on her hands.
Sharing their special day with two friends (thanks COVID) and our beautiful celebrant Leisa from @ceremoniesbyleisa, Amanda and Rahul upgraded their package to include flowers by @_pikt and our oh so popular Kombi from @byronlimokombi and videography by @yellowbullweddings.
