Beaches and a church amongst the trees our top wedding spots

WHEN we put out a question on The Northern Star's Facebook page asking where the best place to get married on the Northern Rivers was, we were inundated with locations, stories and suggestions.

The most popular wedding location suggestion was the Bexhill Open Air Cathedral, receiving many positive comments from Facebookers.

Raylene Thompson said she got married at the Open Air Cathedral, and Helen May, Evelyn Daley and Matina Daley said the Bexhill location was their pick too.

Our local coastline was also a very popular choice, according to our Facebookers, with the suggestions of Angels Beach, Boulders Beach, Dunes on Shelly Beach and at Ballina Golf and Sports Club overlooking the river.

Libbë McWilliams Gray said she had her ceremony at Seven Mile Beach, Lennox Head with celebrant Christine Read followed by a cocktail reception at Blackboard on the Beach at Lennox Head then an evening reception at Harvest Cafe, Newrybar.

Kiya Chaplin also chose Ballina to tie the knot.

Other suggestions were Katandra Gardens in Burringbar, Ballina Manor, Byron Bay Brewery, Rocky Creek Dam, Spinaze Park at Tullera, Echidna Park at Lismore, Lismore City Hall, Hanging Road at Kyogle, Wyrallah Chapel at Tucki Tucki, Urbenville and Tenterfield.

Janet Anne Parkinson said she got married at St Carthage's Cathedral 43 years ago: "A beautiful church, but very long aisle!"

Some took a different approach the question, like Liz Anderson: "Right beside my lovely hubby."

Philip O'Hehir agreed, adding that the best place to get married "is where you both are most happy and relaxed and happy to share with your family as you become untied in a happy married relationship."

However some others had a different opinion all together.

"In your nightmares!" Gabrielle Murphy said.
