Wedding Photography at Tieve Tara Mt Macedon
1st December 2010
We met Merrilyn at her family home to capture her getting ready for the big day ahead. We loved the traditional cut of her dress, complemented by a beautiful veil. Her bridal party included her twin sister and her cousin, both resplendent in blue dresses matching our bride’s eyes. We got a mix of formal Bridal photography and some fun shots of the girls jamming on the family piano.
We left when the bridal car arrived to reach the wedding location: The Gardens of Tieve Tara in Mount Macedon. When we arrived, we strolled through the gardens (taking a few photographs along the way) to meet our groom by the bottom lake for a few formal shots. It was a hot sunny day and we were happy to see that Tieve Tara’s staff had set up two large gazebos and a few garden umbrellas to provide shade to the numerous guests and the couple. The lovely setting was enhanced by classical music played by a string trio.
We then met Merrilyn’s limo at the gate. We shot some formal portraits in the limo with her bridal party and her father. We escorted her down to the lake, stopping here and there to photograph her in this amazing garden. The beautiful bride emerged from the garden to walk down the aisle (a white carpet flanked by the gazebos) with her proud father.
The open space allowed us to capture the ceremony from every angle, with either the gardens or the lake as background. The beautiful gardens of Tieve Tara helped us create timeless wedding photography. The ceremony was followed by the traditional family portrait photography, again utilising the lake as background.
After a few informal shots with the couple and their bridal party, it was time for the formal wedding photography. We photographed our couple at one of Tieve Tara’s best feature: The Monet Bridge.
The bridge is covered in wisteria, with its beautiful clusters of purple flowers. A perfect setting for the most romantic wedding photography.
The reception also took place in the gardens, just on the other side of the bridge. If you are looking for a romantic venue for your wedding, we highly recommend the Gardens of Tieve Tara.
