Wedding Bouquet Photos – Millgrove Photography Top 5

Hi everyone, I thought I’d do a quick post on some of our favourite wedding bouquet photos from the last few years. That is, the ones that we’ve taken – check out Pinterest if you want to see all the thousands of amazing ones other photographers have captured.  Over the nearly 200 weddings we’ve covered in the last 4 years, these are some of our favourites.

Some are big, some are small, and one may not even be “real” … but they are all absolutely beautiful. So here is our list of our Top 5 Wedding Bouquet shots – for the moment! 🙂

 


 

Casey’s beautiful native bouquet

Casey and Luke got married almost a year ago to the day, and we’ve absolutely loved this bouquet from the minute we saw it. I don’t really know much about the names for these flowers, but those big bold colours and unmistakeable natives made this a perfect bouquet for their wedding, held at the historic Emu Bottom homestead.

 Gretta’s gorgeous red and pink bouquet

Another bouquet featuring red flowers and natives as well, we love how this arrangement with roses and orchids is framed with a collection of gum leaves and ferns – again a great fit for the venue celexa side effects kidney stones which was Ballara Receptions.

Jess’s pastel roses

Something more traditional here for Jess and her wedding with Dave at Yarra Ranges Estate. Really soft and beautiful little bouquet bound up with some rustic string – I thought they looked great against the polished boards.

Rachel’s soft and gentle beach bouquet

Loved Rachel’s collection of different sized flowers in soft tones to match the rest of the laid-back wedding – and the setting against the beach worked great with the very cute couple in the background.

Amy’s ultra-modern stainless steel bouquet

This shot is from one of my very first weddings, and I still really like the shot as well as the bouquet. I still use this in some promotional materials and it always gets commented on. Even though they’re not real, the bouquet does have certain advantages – it will never fade, never lose its leaves, and I haven’t seen another one like it since – definitely deserving of making this list.

St Kilda Botanical Gardens wedding

Sue and Craig were back from Canberra to get married at their favourite places, the bar where they first met, and the gardens where they walked in the evenings as they built their relationship. It was just an absolute pleasure to be able to create their wedding images and for them to be so pleased with the result.

We’d first met just down the road in St Kilda on one of their other trips to Melbourne, to catch up, meet, and for them to get to know me a little before they booked me to cover their big day. I love meeting with couples and hearing their stories, everyone’s is so different and it’s always interesting to hear how people got together.

Grey skies loomed over the ceremony, there were umbrellas at the ready and a bridal party shooting concerned looks towards the heavens – would the weather hold out?

A chuck on the shoulder for good luck.

Excited Groomsman

Craig was so proud to be marrying celexa side effects weight Sue, I don’t think you can find a single shot in the whole set where he’s not smiling at the thought. Most couples are very much in love on their wedding day, but that was especially true here – genuinely excited to finally be tying the knot.

I think the nervousness was just starting to kick in – those certainly look like three nervous smiles.

A first kiss as husband and wife – actually not yet, this was Sue arriving at the gazebo – a cute kiss before the serious business of getting them married.

First kiss as husband and wife - well, nearly.
