The Location

Barefoot at Broken Head is 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 and garden weddings in Australia.

For beach ceremonies, the couple walks through the sand dunes to the ceremony site on the pristine surf beach where eucalypts crowd thick over the hills. 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.

Garden ceremonies are held 20m from the Honeymoon Suite in a lush, manicured setting.

The Venue

Following the beach ceremony, the guests stroll back along the winding bush track and through the back gate of the house, revealing the minimalist 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 Complete Package

Barefoot at Broken Head provides you with the ultimate beach wedding venue, infrastructure and luxury accommodation all in one.

Our in-house coordination and catering package, the Simple Wedding Plan, provides all food, wait staff, bar staff and coordination by our house manager.
