The Ultimate Byron Bay Wedding: Christina & Toby
Posted: Oct 13 2014
A few month's ago, I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely bride Christina. She visited my home office to try on a pair of shoes and we instantly hit it off as friends. She was describing her wedding to her fiancé Toby and it sounded incredible! She wanted her wedding to be far from traditional and an ultimate Byron Bay experience for all of her guests.
As most of Christina's family still lives in America where she was originally born, she wanted her wedding guests to have a true taste of their life in Byron. Everything she described was EXACTLY what I would want do if I was to get married again!
We laughed about the risk she was taking on the ceremony venue she had chosen. She was married on the cliff tops at Broken Head beach. It definitely wasn't an extremely safe place to have all her guests gathering, but it made for an incredible experience for them! (That is why she required some extra stable and supportive shoes for her sloped walk down the aisle!)
The reception was held at an old quarry in Ewingsdale, Byron Bay. The entertainment she hired was spectacular! She found a busker at the local markets to sing at her wedding, she hired the best sushi chef in town and the best pizza chef. She even scouted out the local fire dancers that are usually performing at the top park in Byron to be the entertainment at the wedding.
We hope you enjoy the pictures below and get to feel the very essence of what an incredible Byron Bay wedding captures.
Thank you Christina and Toby for sharing your beautiful day with us.
