Photographing An Alternative Wedding in Melbourne
3rd March 2013
When we are booked to photograph a Melbourne Registry Office Wedding sometimes we don’t get to meet our couple until the Wedding day.
When we met our Bride and Groom along with their family and friends it took us a few seconds to recognize our couple.
We were surprised and delighted by the couple’s style. They looked great and unlike any other couple we photographed before.
Our groom was sporting black shirt, black trousers, a dark purple tie, no jacket and had an impressive mohawk.
Our bride was wearing a stylish black dress and her bouquet was a combination of dark burgundy and white flowers.
We photographed the ceremony in the Melbourne Registry Office’s main room and we were struck by the fact that our groom’s wedding band was also black.
After photographing the traditional family portraits on the Melbourne Registry Office steps it was time to come up with a location for the formal photography.
A necessary skill for a Melbourne Wedding Photographer is the ability to adapt the photographic style to the client.
If your groom sports a mohawk and your bride is wearing black, it would not be appropriate to shoot Romantic Formal Wedding Photography in a garden setting.
We decided that a more urban, edgy style of photography would suit our couple better.
We only had 40 minutes as our couple needed to get to their reception so we jumped in a taxi and took our couple to the closest and most suitable urban location: Hosier Lane, in the Melbourne CBD, opposite Federation Square.
Hosier Lane is one of our favourite locations when we photograph weddings in Melbourne CBD. It is an open space for graffiti artists to display their art.
The look of it is ever evolving as new art replaces older graffiti, allowing us to create different images every time we photograph our couples.
