A quick guide to Weddings in Byron Bay.
Thinking of getting married in Byron Bay? Here’s some helpful information and links to information on wedding venues, wedding car hire, celebrants, photographers, bridal hair, makeup and more.
Deciding on your wedding venue can be one of the most difficult decisions you’ll make. You can’t confirm the date of your wedding until this important decision is made to ensure you’re able to lock in venue availability. Choosing an approximate date and then checking for available wedding venues is your first official step towards the wedding of your dreams.
Popular wedding venues include beach weddings and the iconic Cape Byron Lighthouse.
Getting married on the beach in Byron is fairly easy to organise. However you do need to get council approval approximately 6 weeks prior. If you’re staying at the Byron Bay Beach Houses two popular beaches are available as a wedding venue. The houses are just 3 minutes walk from Clarkes Beach – a stunning beach popular for weddings and special occasion events – and 7 minutes walk to Tallow Beach. To lock in your wedding on the beach you simply need to contact Byron Shire Council by calling 02 6626 7044 OR filling out the temporary licence application to use council land. You’ll find the temporary licence pdf download and more information here.
Note that the licence the council provides doesn’t cover weddings at Byron’s iconic Lighthouse.
Byron Bay Lighthouse Weddings
The Lighthouse at Byron would have to be one of the most romantic spots to get married. The Lighthouse offers stunning views you can literally walk into with plenty of opportunities for unique and creative wedding photography. Adding to that is close by accommodation here in one of our Byron Bay houses – a choice of two luxury homes to get ready in that are just a very short distance from a spectacular wedding venue – a perfect combination for your perfect day.
Other Wedding Reception Venues
If a Beach Wedding or Lighthouse Wedding doesn’t suit there’s plenty of other options available to you.
If you are a person of faith there are many gorgeous churches to choose from. You may also like to opt for something a little more unique – one of the farm houses or hinterland properties in the Byron Bay area. Here’s a link to other wedding venue ideas and a link to Divinity Weddings in Byron Bay that lists some wedding venue options.

We are also more than happy to offer recommendations to quality resort accommodation for additional family members. Our pick in the area is Byron at Byron resort - a beautiful place to stay before and after your wedding celebration as well as being a great venue for the ceremony.
Byron Bay Wedding Car Hire
There are obviously the traditional limos and luxury wedding cars for hire for your special day but being in Byron Bay means you’ll always find a service a little bit left of the middle – it’s why we all LOVE living here. We love to recommend services that are different. In light of this, if you’re needing wheels of grace and grandeur for your special day look no further than The Luv Dub! - an excellent alternative to the ‘traditional’ wedding car.
We think they’re awesome and simply perfect for a Byron Bay wedding.
