Wategos Beach is blessed with unmistakeable beauty. This sandy little pocket of Byron’s coastline is pure luxury. Nestled just below the lighthouse and home to some of the region’s most lavish holiday homes, Wategos Beach is an idyllic beachside location to whisk your wedding party away to. Just don’t forget check the tides…


Clarkes Beach is located directly in front of Beach Byron Bay and truly is an incredible setting for your Byron Bay wedding photos. With beautiful views of the bay, Byron Lighthouse, Mount Warning and Julian Rocks, this uncrowded beach is a popular choice for our wedding couples. Just a short five minute stroll will find you at to our beachfront restaurant, located in the white sand dunes. Our team can be on hand to greet guests with champagne, cocktails, canapes plus towels and even scented foot baths to wash the sand from their feet when coming off the beach.


Byron Bay Lighthouse stands tall on the most easterly point of Australia. Home to breathtaking views that expand over a dramatic coastline and turquoise waters the Byron Bay Lighthouse is the perfect photographer’s backdrop – not to mention an easy five minute drive from Beach Byron Bay . But keep in mind that you will need to obtain a permit for any photos taken on the Cape Byron Headland.


Rolling hinterland vistas reach far and wide and make for a gorgeous country setting for those wanting more rural than beach in their Byron Bay wedding album. Located only ten minutes out of town and set amidst an historic and rustic style setting is the Ewingsdale Church. Home to heritage listed fig trees, this area is popular with couples wanting a private and more country styled photography shoot.
