A Joyful Byron Bay Wedding: Natalie + Luke


Happiness and joy followed Natalie and Luke around on the day of their wedding wherever they went. Natalie shares their beautiful day below:

“The day was beyond what we ever imagined it would be – relaxed, joyous and magical. We were married under the dappled light of a giant fig-tree; eighty-six of our loved ones on one-side, and the sun-drenched Byron Bay hinterland on the other. The weather was absolutely divine, so much so that I’m told a brown snake slithered down the aisle a mere minutes before my entrance. Not that I could have cared, I pretty much ran down that aisle to my beaming and glassy-eyed husband to-be, skipping the formalities and going straight in for the kiss!

We ate and drank and danced under a canopy of sweet jasmine, greenery and wild blooms infusing the room with the most intoxicating aroma of delicious food and florals. We both said that we’d happily live in that room forevermore.

I’ve never felt the energy of love quite as powerfully as I did that evening – the room seemed to radiate happiness. We never wanted it to end.

But all good things have to eventually come to a close and once all our guests were on the bus back to Byron we sat for hours, sipping champagne and recapping all the wonderfulness of the day in the Earth House’s outdoor bath. It was the perfect night, the sky dripping with shooting stars. We saw so many that we could have made hundreds of wishes that night! But we already felt as though we had had all our wishes granted that day.”
