Melbourne Wedding Photography – Our Favourites of 2016
Throughout 2016 we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to capture lots of awesome couples celebrating their unique and carefully planned weddings. This post, which will be updated with videos featuring some of our own favourite shots from each month.
Melbourne wedding photography – January
January saw us capturing weddings on the Morning Peninsula and in Melbourne’s CBD.
What’s better than kicking off the new year with a sun-drenched beach wedding on the iconic Mornington Peninsula? Jess and Ben moved their wedding after the unfortunate loss of The Baths in Sorento (happily now back up and running), and moved their wedding to right on the beach across from the very lovely Pavilion McCrae Beach.
Abbyrose and Jason’s traditional ceremony at beautiful St. Patrick’s Cathedral was followed by photography around the city and then on to an absolutely stunning reception at The Hotel Windsor.
In an amazing coincidence, we also captured Kathleen and Andrew’s reception at The Windsor just a week later, having been to their ceremony at Our Lady of Victories earlier in the day.
So a very modern beach wedding and super-relaxed beachside reception followed by two very traditional church weddings and reception at one of Melbourne’s most iconic hotels – what a start to the year 🙂
Just the two weddings in February 2016 – here in the Yarra Valley at the absolutely awesome Eastern Golf Club, and in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.
Mid-February found me photographing amazing couple Kate and Jason under The Dome at 333 Collins St – you can’t really get much more central than that! And then on to Maia at the Docklands, with it’s dramatic views outside and lighting inside.
And later in the month, I was lucky enough to be chosen by Jen and Ryan to capture their wedding – just the second at the newly-finished Eastern Golf Club and its stunning views across the Yarra Valley.
One very city wedding and one with a very country feel – perfect 🙂
March 2016 was a busy month for us (isn’t every March?), with all outdoor weddings, including gardens, historic buildings, traditional reception venues and a country backyard wedding – but this wasn’t just any backyard!
First up was Mia and Ray’s very family-oriented celebration at Rivers of Yarrambat, with a special appearance by an absolutely awesome Chevy.
A week later and it was a very entertaining ceremony for Haidee and Chris, just down the road from Millgrove at beautiful Wild Cattle Creek.
Melissa and Ben tied the know at Wattle Park Chalet in Surrey Hills, in an outdoor ceremony, framed by the beautiful old building and conducted by the always fun John Byrne.
The following morning, I met up with gorgeous bride Courtney and her husband Asjad, having flown in from Kenya for the Australian leg of their wedding celebrations!
And finally, to cap off March, I drove up through central Victoria to meet up with Sue and Michael for their “backyard” wedding extravaganza with just a few close friends and family.
This is a timely post now with March just around the corner – looking forward to another great start to Melbourne’s Autumn wedding season 🙂
