Photographing weddings in Melbourne brings us to lots of different wedding venues. We see stylish restaurants, rooftop balconies overlooking the Melbourne skyline and beachfront restaurants. To photograph a vintage styled wedding is something wonderful and what better venue could you think of as an old rustic barn in the middle of nowhere.
Vintage weddings in Melbourne
The bride got ready on the Mornington Peninsula in a wonderful Bed & Breakfast overlooking the Melbourne Bay. A spacious apartment gave the family and friends plenty of space to enjoy the morning and get ready for the big day. No stress. Relaxing time on the couch. Sipping some champagne and reflecting on the big things to come.
The ceremony was held outside overlooking the sweeping hills. The traditional ceremony included an aboriginal ritual for the bride and groom (as the owners of the land) which was a pleasure to follow and gave the wedding a very special touch. The guests enjoyed some drinks, snacks and played party games (such as a massive Jenga or vintage boule game) on the grass. Fun times.
Melbourne vintage wedding photography – Sunset photoshoot
We took out the lovely couple around the farm hills behind the barn to capture some of the last light which disappeared quickly behind the hills. The Mornington Peninsula is a perfect spot for such a vintage-inspired wedding. Walking along the fields gave the couple some relaxing time. No need to pose them in any way … we love to keep it natural … just let them be themselves.
Just after sunset, we went back to kick off the function in a barn.
Melbourne barn wedding photography – A rustic wedding venue
There is no such thing as Melbourne Barn Wedding Photography. We just happen to photograph in a barn … simple as that. You need a bit of an organisational talent to get all the basic things running in a barn – think about electricity, lights, a kitchen, tables and chairs … all not readily available in a barn. The couple did a great job in organising a perfect Melbourne barn wedding which was a pleasure to photograph.
Dancing under the fairy lights … wonderful food … great fun … sipping some champagne … stepping outside to enjoy the stars and breath in the fresh air. Just as you expect from a wonderful vintage barn wedding.
