Natural Wedding Photography

Your Relaxed and Natural wedding photographers brings you a selection of their favourite weddings from around Melbourne, Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula & Gippsland.

Emily & Hugh

After much searching for a rustic wedding venue that they could completely take over for a day or two and put their own stamp on, Emily & Hugh finally came across a Scout camp near Lilydale. Although the site had never before been used for a wedding, it fitted the bill perfectly. With a hire…

Ben & Karen, The Capital, Bendigo

Ben & Karen’s wedding at The Capital Theatre in Bendigo, had something for everyone! A dog, luxurious beards, a hot glue gun toting mother of the bride (I’m still very impressed by that!), an enthusiastic bridal party, groomsman in his undies, tears, a sunset and a great hard rubbish find prior to the ceremony. I…

Victoria & Sam, Montsalvat

Victoria & Sam were married at Montsalvat, the unique artists colony in Eltham. Not quite Melbourne and not quite the Yarra Valley, Montsalvat exists in it’s only little world and feels a thousand miles from the nearby suburbs and city. I remember visiting when I first arrived in Melbourne from London and felt like I’d…

Renee & Cam

When I scout out a wedding venue for photography locations to use with the couple during their portrait session, I always keep the weather in mind.   I usually have a plan for good weather and then formulate a Plan B with undercover options or umbrellas should there be any rain or high winds. I was…

Loz & Nath

Loz & Nath chose the perfect Melbourne wedding venue for a 35 degree day – Mountain Goat brewery!  Yup, somewhere that serves great cold beer. Winner! Following a refreshing ale and a ceremony conducted by the always amusing Anthony Cribbes, we ventured outside for a few photos around Richmond’s alleys and backstreets before returning to…

Flinders Yacht Club Wedding

Flinders Yacht Club on the Mornington Peninsula was the beautiful location that Kirsten & Shane and chose for their marriage ceremony and reception. Kirsten readied herself along with her best friend and children at a nearby cottage in Flinders village before arriving at the venue in a sky blue VW Kombi from Peninsula Kombi Bus…

Even with a broken handle, I Love You.

Wedding photography isn’t just about the people, it’s also about the little details that accompany them and I really enjoy finding the hidden treasures that await me when I shoot a wedding. Some of the best places to unearth these treasures are at the home of the bride or groom or their parent’s home. It’s…

I turn my back for a moment….

…and the groom somehow acquires a clutch purse and 4 small dogs! Having finished the portraits of the couple at the Botanical Gardens and ACDC Lane I thought it would just be a short walk up Flinders Lane to Rachel & Rhys’ wedding venue White Lane. Rhys had other ideas! I really get a kick…

Redwood Forest, Warburton

One wedding photography location close to the Yarra Valley that has become increasingly popular of late, is the Redwood Forest in Warburton. Planted sometime around 1930, this grid formation plantation of over 200 trees was to be something of an experiment to test how this particular tree would grow in the area. From what I…

Kristy & Stuart’s Zonzo Wedding

Kristy & Stuart are experienced travelers and love exploring the world, so it was no surprise that they had combed the Yarra Valley for the best wedding venue and suppliers for their wedding day. Having enjoyed many enjoyable lunches at Zonzo on their trips to the Yarra Valley, they selected it as the location to…
