Beach Wedding Photography in Melbourne's Wintery Blast

Wedding Photography on a Melbourne beach in Winter, showing a bridal couple against a colourful sunset.This bride and groom braved Melbourne's wintry conditions to have some impromptu photography on their wedding day, on Elwood Beach. The opportunity to take advantage of this glorious sunset was possible because the couple were on time, and the day ran smoothly.

To ensure you get the best from the day into which you have invested so much, read our wedding photography planning tips article, to help you allocate enough time at the right times, for all the things that need to happen.

The Bride and Groom rehearsed a few dance moves during this photo shoot- and our camera caught the moment. This kind of natural spontaneity flows when the timing of the wedding day has been generously allocated to each part of the day. As the inevitable delays and interruptions crop up, you will be glad you had the buffer built in to your schedule. If you are stressed the photos won't have you looking your very best- and you don't want to arrive for your wedding reception exhausted.

If you are planning a location such as this one, at Elwood Beach, Melbourne, then it is vitally important to have a second, photogenic backup. Scout alternate wedding photography locations well in advance, and once more just prior to the day, so that there are absolutely no surprises on the day. Seek out and apply for any permit well in advance, and ensure that long limousines or lowered wedding hot rods can access the parking areas, if you have booked these cars.

There's lots to do even when you're supposed to be having a break from all that photography! This very jovial bridal party had their own photo session unbeknown to the bride and groom, and it all happened in the blink of an eye- or the flash of a strobe. What was the bride doing during all this? The photo below tells all- the lovely bride was cueing her special bridal waltz track, as DJ Nader looked on, wondering exactly who was running the show!

The result of a well planned bridal waltz speaks for itself, and there's a photo below that shows just how great it all looks when done properly. A smoke machine brings atmosphere, and the rest is bliss! Wedding photographers capture the best images in a setting like this with the lights down low, and no auxilliary photographic ighting.

Wedding photography after dark- otherwise known as night shot wedding photography- either succeeds or fails on the merits of the location. These images were shot in conditions far from dry- and if you're freading the prospect of rain on your wedding day- don't worry.

If you've selected a great venue- and you might want to check it out at night- just to be sure. Good reception venues will have an incredible assortment of places to shot at night, and after the bridal party have finshed their mains, is usually a great time to do night shot wedding photography. Melbourne twilight is long- so the timing does not need to be super-critical.

The photo shown above is an example of nightshot wedding photography taken in the absolute black of night. Contrary to most peoples' belief, the sky is not "pitch black" at night in the suburbs- and the super sensitive chip in professional cameras makes light work of rendering the color visible in the sky two hours after sunset. These images are all examples of wedding photography at Bram Leigh Receptions.
