Simon of Wedding Snapper, loves to help couples out with their planning and always have some great suggestions for venues that help to create those special wedding photographs that you’ll still be enjoying in years to come.
In no particular order, this Melbourne wedding photographer loves to shoot at:
Motsalvat, for it’s unique and quirky vibe. It’s a great location for really atmospheric wedding photography in Melbourne as it evokes an artisan community of somewhere in Europe. Quite a special and unusual place! Wedding packages also include photography permits in the grounds of the property. The Great Hall, ornamental pond and bluestone chapel are all worth viewing.
The National Trust’s Labassa in Caulfield is a unique heritage listed building with embossed wallpaper, stained glass windows, opulent furniture and a spectacular staircase. Melbourne wedding photography doesn’t get more impressive!
Melbourne’s GPO building is not only great for shopping, but it’s gorgeous arches and incredible architecture lend it to a wedding photography location perfectly. Soft in colour with it’s neutral tones, every bride will look stunning here in the afternoon light. Black and white photography looks fabulous here on a rainy day as it creates such drama in a photograph.
The Hotel Windsor is an iconic Melbourne landmark that needs no introduction. With it’s imposing entrance and grand stature, any bride is going to look stunning with it as a backdrop. The interior staircase is also incredibly grand, with many corridors leading off it for some fun couple photographs.
Carlton’s Royal Exhibition Building is not only one of Melbourne’s most prominent buildings, but it’s also a UNESCO world heritage listed building and more importantly one of our favourite locations for wedding photography in Melbourne. With it’s beautiful dome, manicured gardens, avenue of trees and impressive fountains, it has several impressive locations within a small area – perfect for tired feet or on a hot day.
Whilst these are some of our favourite locations for wedding photography in Melbourne, there are hundreds more waiting to be discovered, from graffiti covered laneways to archways and gardens around some of Melbourne’s most famous and best loved buildings.
