Jess + Craig // Newrybar Downs Harvest Byron Bay Wedding

If there are two words that could sum up Jess & Craig’s Newrybar Downs Harvest Byron Bay Wedding, it would be “relaxed sophistication”.

Jess & Craig are two of the nicest humans you ever could meet.  If you don’t believe me, just ask their gigantic mountain of friends!  Jess is a huge lover of horses and dogs, hence their border collie “Dunaden” was the ring bearer at the wedding and I’m sure her horse “Blue” would have been involved also if she could have packed him in her suitcase!

Newrybar Downs was the most exquisite venue and suited the sophisticated style of Jess & Craig’s wedding perfectly.  The house was large enough for both Jess & Craig to get ready without seeing each other, which further added to the relaxed yet “electric” vibe of the morning.  At times the boys turned up the tunes LOUD to tease the girls, and the girls spied out the window to check the boys were behaving.  So fun!

Then it was out onto the rolling lawns to the most perfectly placed solo macadamia tree for the ceremony, which transfixed their guests with the beauty of the moment.

While guest enjoyed canapés we toured around the grounds for some bridal party photos.  We then headed to a couple of nearby spots with just Jess & Craig for some relaxed photos, making the most of the golden sunset and stunning hinterland scenery.

And then…. to Harvest Cafe for the big celebration!!  And what a party it was!!   The food!!  The atmosphere!!  The speeches!!  The dancing!!!  Those DONUTS!!!  Ahhhh what a night!!

Thanks again for having me on board your exquisite day Jess & Craig.  Your Newrybar Downs Harvest Byron Bay wedding was an incredible celebration of your love and commitment and I adored photographing every moment!

  • I agree on how you will describe Jess and Craig wedding. It is definitely a “relaxed sophistication”. The images were fantastic. I love the setup of their wedding, the venue, their attires, wedding rings and most especially the flower arrangement and selection are superb. Kudos for the teams who managed to come up with this kind of creativity.ReplyCancel
