Byron Bay Golf Club Wedding
Melanie and Isaac’s winter wedding was held on a beautiful sunny day, one of those days that Byron Bay is famous for. It’s no wonder this couple from Albury chose it as the location for their wedding. Like many other couples, their impeccable taste led them to secure the Byron Bay Golf Club as the venue for their nuptials and it didn’t disappoint!
If you have never set foot on Byron Bay Golf Club’s exquisite grounds, let me paint a picture for you. Lush rolling greens set amongst stunning native flora and views forever. If any photographers from Byron Bay or the Gold Coast are reading this, if you get the chance to play wedding photographer here, jump at it!
When we arrived to shoot their wedding photography, both the groom’s and the bride’s quarters were a hive of activity. Given there were four bridesmaids and groomsmen each plus nine flowergirls, how could it not be? I wondered when was the last time Byron Bay had seen nine flowergirls together at one time as it’s not something you see every day even as a wedding photographer, let alone the general public!
The wedding ceremony began, putting to an end the poor groom’s nerves. Once his gaze fell upon Melanie in her gorgeous gown, he was all smiles and happy faces looked on as the couple exchanged heartfelt vows under that warm winter sun.
While guests mingled and nibbled on the finest of canapes, we took to the golf course (in golf buggies of course!) for the official wedding photography portrait session. Byron Bay Golf Club provided a striking backdrop for their wedding portraits, with golden afternoon light leaking through the trees to bestow on us an atmosphere of romance and warmth.
The reception, twinking under thousands of fairy lights, started as dusk fell. Flowing champagne, hilarious speeches followed by energetic dancing on the dance floor concluded a fabulous day. Even though I’m a wedding photographer and I see it all the time, it still astounds me how quickly a wedding day flies by. Luckily, Melanie and Isaac have hundreds and hundreds of wedding photos to remember their special day with.
