The good news doesn’t stop here, Byron’s mild climate makes it the perfect destination to say I do all year round.

Summer in Byron Bay (December -February)

If you’re someone who loves the sun, Summer is the perfect time of year for you. The sun rises early and warms the ocean, making it perfect for a morning swim or surf, then sets late allowing flexibility for your ceremony and plenty of sunlight for your photographer to get beautiful natural light photos. 

Autumn in Byron Bay (March – May)

The leaves are falling and the days are cooling, this season is perfect for sunny days and cool nights. The flowers in bloom in autumn are dark and moody and the weather becomes more predictable and dependable.

Winter in Byron Bay (June – August)

Although winter is Byron’s coldest months, the ocean becomes clear and the skies are usually cloudless, making this season amazing for photo taking. The humidity is lower (both your hair and makeup will thank you) and the cooler weather gives you the perfect excuse to layer a luxe fur coat or motorcycle jacket over your wedding dress.

Spring in Byron Bay (September -November)

Spring is the ultimate time to elope in Byron Bay. The days are becoming longer and warmer, not to mention this time of year has the lowest average rainfall. The flowers in bloom are soft, neutral and light colours and the flourishing outdoors will add natural beauty to your photos.

Once you have chosen your dream venue and season, it’s time to chose some fun activities to do while in Byron Bay.
