Elope to Melbourne for some Romantic Wedding Photography

31st August 2013

It is becoming increasingly fashionable to elope to get married in another town. It is a very romantic way to get married, it shields the couple from the stress of family expectations and it  makes good financial sense.

We recently had the pleasure to photograph the wedding of Deanna and Michael, a couple from New South Wales who eloped to Melbourne.

Their plan was to marry in a garden setting and to run off to a romantic dinner.

As they were getting married quite late in the evening, we suggested to shoot part of the formal wedding photography before their ceremony to make use of the natural light for a more natural photography.

They chose to marry in the Queen Victoria Gardens so we decided to meet up in a landmark location close to it: Federation Square.

We photographed them around the Square, along the Yarra and on and around Princes Bridge, cracking a few jokes to capture their smiles.  They complimented us on our ability to relax them and put them at ease.

It is quite important to make the wedding photography a stress free and fun experience, especially in a case like this, when we had not met our clients before and they might have been a bit nervous before the ceremony.

We then met with their celebrant Monique Duggan and witnessed Deanna and Michael’s union. As we were the only people to attend the ceremony, we also had the privilege to sign the wedding certificate and had fun photographing ourselves doing so.

Having taken care of the formalities we resumed our wedding photography session. By then the sun was long gone, so it was time for set shots, with more posing and longer exposures.

We took a few photos of the couple in the gardens and then took them to Southbank for a few beautiful shots with Melbourne by night in the background before seeing off our couple to their romantic dinner.
