Melbourne City Wedding Photography
Melbourne wedding photographers need to seek out the unusual- and this gallery shows examples of photography in places most people wouldn’t stop to look at. From city lanes, to the steps of Parliament House in Spring Street, newlyweds don’t need to cover huge distances, to get great photos. The foyer shown here is from the Crown Metropol Hotel, near the Casino in West Melbourne. This is one of many beautiful hotels in Melbourne, however couples and wedding photographers need to be aware that permission to take photos is not freely granted. Ensure you seek approval well in advance and carry a copy of your written permit on the wedding day photo shoot.
The wedding ceremony took place at the Melbourne Registry Office, and the last photo in the series below shows an anxious groom multi tasking on the phone. Although he is the center of attention, the groom still manages to concentrate on his phone call, and keep those around him smiling. The other wedding photos in the series of three were taken in the Crown Metropol Hotel, showing different aspects of the foyer, and imaginative composition using the staircase. A full shot of the stairs was impossible, there were tourists everywhere. The wedding photo below left, shows a way of utilising the cluttered setting to isolate the bride within a graphic composition, adding a touch of drama to the photography.
The following wedding photos show a ceremony taking place in the Melbourne Registry Office. This is close to Parliament House, Pellegrini’s Bar, the Australia on Collins, and other popular Melbourne wedding photographer locations. The central picture was taken at the Crown Metropol Hotel, before the wedding ceremony. The Melbourne Registry Office is conveniently located at the top end of Collins St, with on-dtreet parking close by. The whole building has an old world charm about it, with the advantage of being close to every prominent wedding photographers location in Melbourne city.
From the ceremony, we moved to some unusual city locations, as shown in the series below. From a steamy laneway, where our solar powered smoke machine worked overtime creating the atmosphere for this sultry wedding shot, to the home of art- the National Gallery of Victoria. The couple are shown framed by the arch outside the Eastern entrance to the building, on St Kilda Road.
The next series of photos shows what can be done at Parliament House- a very popular wedding photography location for Melbourne brides and couples. Shot just on twilight, these wedding pictures show the tall buildings of Melbourne’s eastern city precinct. Our Hollywood lighting was used in some these photos, adding a touch of glamour to the scene.
The wedding photography shown below is from the Crown Metropol Hotel foyer, and also Parliament House Melbourne. All the pictures are examples of wedding photo nightshots, in Melbourne city. The Crown Plaza was used by the bridal couple, as well as the entrance area to the hotel. Having the right gear was a welcome scenario- the iseal angle of view from our wedding photography lenses enabled us to shoot the horse and carriage photo with taxi cabs everywhere.
Wedding Photographers in Melbourne are spoiled for choice- the city area has unlimited photography opportunities. It pays to check though- not all areas are freely available any more. Councils are imposing restrictions and insisting that wedding photography permits are obtained before the day.
