These lucky newlyweds (centre) found lots of appreciative admirers at the Byron Lighthouse on Sunday, members of the flash mob The Cassettes.

An unsuspecting couple of newlyweds, who visited Cape Byron Lighthouse for photos after their wedding on Sunday, have come away with one shot they’ll enjoy explaining to their grandchildren.

Also out taking photos at the same time was Byron photographer Alex Clarke who was shooting promo pictures with The Cassettes & Mixtape Crew using the lighthouse as a backdrop.

‘Lots of curious onlookers, of course, but the bride from this couple plucked up the courage to ask the crew if they’d pose with her, resulting in this terrific pic!’ Alex told Echonetdaily.

Alas he didn’t get the names of the lucky couple but Echonetdaily would love to hear from them.

The Cassettes are a 80s themed flash mob dance crew. Find out more at their website

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
