Bawley Point Beaches
There are many local beautiful beach wedding locations to choose from. The most popular is the shaded Bawley Point Reserve immediately behind Bawley Beach. If you actually want sand beneath your feet also check out (listed from north to south)- North Beach, Cormorant Beach, Gannett Beach, Murramarang Beach and Shell Beach. The Bawley Point Headland itself is a beautiful area and could be a stunning backdrop for your wedding or for post-wedding photos.

Beach Wedding Backup Plan
As with all outdoor weddings it is important to factor in a contingency plan in the event of inclement weather that could possibly ruin your ceremony.The Cockatoo Room at Bawley Bush Cottages, already prepared for your reception, is the perfect fall-back location if wet or over-hot conditions seem likely to prevail. The room, with it's timber featured vaulted ceilings and the lakeside land with sweeping lawns and well-kept gardens are both so attractive that many people skip the beach idea altogether and decide to get married at Bawley Bush Cottages itself. It's your wedding, it's your choice.
