Weddings at Barefoot

Sophisticated beach weddings

The location

Barefoot at Broken Head

The only private house in the Byron Shire approved for wedding receptions, located just a short drive from the heart of Byron Bay.

The ceremony

Barefoot at Broken Head hosts the most sophisticated beach weddings in Australia. The couple walks through the sand dunes to the ceremony site on a pristine surf beach where eucalypts crowd thick over the hills and waves roll in from the picturesque point. With not a house in sight, at the end of the single stretch of sand their guests see the most easterly point of Australia – the iconic Byron Bay Lighthouse.

The venue

Following the wedding ceremony, the guests stroll back along the winding bush track and through the back gate of the house, revealing the architectural splendour that is Barefoot at Broken Head. With large wooden decks descending into lush tropical gardens, imagine sipping cocktails and enjoying delicious canapés under a rainforest canopy while you dance into the evening.

A perfect package

Barefoot at Broken Head provides you with the ultimate beach wedding venue, infrastructure and luxury accommodation all in one. For coordination and catering we work with renowned local company Byron Bay Weddings who run Fig Tree Restaurant in the hills overlooking Byron. You purchase your own alcohol and beverages from wherever you wish and have them delivered to the venue for your wedding.
