No boring bits at Lauren and Andrew’s Tooraloo Farmstay wedding, Byron Bay


An original 1900s federation farmhouse; two live bands, and a late-night splash in the estate’s inground swimming pool created a rocking party atmosphere at this Tooraloo Farmstay wedding in Byron Bay.

Lauren and Andrew – or ‘Daz’ as he’s known by friends – tied the knot beneath an ancient fig tree canopy at the magical Byron Bay wedding venue on October 19, 2019.

The rustic boho wedding was a relaxed, outdoor celebration that threw formalities to the wind to focus on incredible food, music, and just the right vibe at all times.

“Our ceremony at Tooraloo Farmstay rolled into one big party,” recalls bride Lauren. “We had a folk band playing after our vows and our guests could order from the bar and eat straight away – no boring intervals here!

“We wanted a very relaxed reception with no seating plans where guests could eat and drink whenever they wanted all whilst listening to amazing live music.

Speeches were relaxed and the bridal party photos dodging cow poo were an absolute hoot! As it set on dark we had a rock band set up in the gallery room that quickly turned into the entire reception singing and getting down!

“We honestly wouldn’t have changed a thing, it was absolutely magical.

“Ohhh and the surprise pool jump at the very end of the night was something we will never forget!”

Bride Lauren totally nailed the rustic boho wedding look wearing a champagne backless dress from Rue de Seine and a fantastic wide-brim fedora hat from Will and Bear.

“My earrings were from Red Earth Jewellers. The boys wore the matching shirts, pants, belt and shoes supplied by Connor. My bridesmaids all chose their own dresses in champagne / gold colours, and Andrew’s amazing cousin Kerry of Darcy and the Fox created everything flower related,” describes Lauren.

With music important on the couple’s wedding wish list, a folk band and a rock band at either end of the celebrations set the right tone from start to finish.

“Black Train were the perfect fit, a folk band playing on the grassy area beside the cows and the beautiful Byron hinterland in the background. They created a very relaxed atmosphere.

Then, The Swamps were next level fun! They knew exactly how to get the party started and even played backup for my sister as she sang our first dance song. Matt has an incredible voice and ended the night with an original that we had requested. We’ll never forget that!” says Lauren.
