I love Melbourne for wedding photography as it really does have everything to choose from.
One of my favourite spots at the moment is the CBD jungle that you stumble across when crossing Fitzroy Gardens. There is so much foliage to play with, it’s perfect to work with all year round.
Plus, if you also want some stunning architecture to add to the photos, the city is merely a five minute stroll away (assuming you manage to pass Treasury Gardens without stopping for another photo!). Here is a shot of Libby & Pete’s recent wedding which took in several locations in the gardens for photos.
If you’re getting married at the Melbourne Registry in the Old Treasury building then the nearby Treasury Gardens might also come in handy. Convenient for family photos following a ceremony, after which you can then shake off the crowds by moving onto Fitzroy Gardens.
Fitzroy Gardens is watered daily so looks vibrant and fresh all through the year. As well as greenery it has a small rotunda that is sometimes useful for wedding photos and to add another look to the set of wedding photos. The Glasshouse within the gardens is a lovely building but you will need to organise and pay for a permit to take wedding photos in there. I guess it would be a little too popular with photographers and couples alike otherwise!
