Melbourne has wonderful beaches. The suburbs of Frankston, Brighton, Elwood, St Kilda, Sandringham, Albert Park and Port Melbourne are just ideal for beach wedding photography. There are so many venue options along the Melbourne Bay. We did some great Melbourne Beach Wedding Photography in further away from the Melbourne CBD at the Carrum Bowling Club.
Melbourne Beach Wedding Photography
Less hectic than the beaches in Brighton, St Kilda and Albert Park make a perfect backdrop for a romantic beach photography session. We always hope for a sunny day with a few clouds – not too hot and this time we just had the perfect weather. When the venue is close to the beach it’s usually no problem to just go for a quick beach walk and relax a bit … escape the wedding and go on a mini elopement on the beach – just the bride and groom.
But let us start at the beginning …
Stunning Beach Wedding
It’s a French – Australian love. The couple lives in Paris, France – French bride – Australian groom :-). They both got ready close to the beach … in a very different type of environment. Some AFL footy for the guys … some luxurious french champagne in style for the girls. A perfect fit!
The wedding gown was just stunning – hand made by the grandmother. French chic! OMG! A dream wedding dress which just suits the bride perfectly.
The wedding ceremony was directly located on the pier. The harsh sun is always a big problem here – so it is advisable to try to have the light from the back – otherwise, you will constantly blink and blinded and will not be able to enjoy the wedding. The wedding decoration was kept simple and suited a beach wedding in Melbourne – you just need some sand, the water and a beautiful couple. The father walked with his daughter across the beach to the pier where the groom was awaiting his bride.
Empty beaches make beach wedding photography in Melbourne a bit easier – and as we have a lot of beaches there is enough space for everyone. Simple lines and a clean beach is something which we love photographing! A walk in the sand. Barefoot. Fun. Luxury.
A photo prop like an oversized balloon helps to forget the camera (ah well … this couple was just so in love that they forgot the surrounds completely) and makes for wonderful images. Stylish and simple – clean lines is what makes Melbourne beach wedding photography so special. As you never can plan the weather you need to stay flexible and get the best light (we will help you plan your day!).
Melbourne Bayside – Wedding Photography
The function was lots of fun at the Carrum Bowling Club … plenty of dancing, drinks, laughter. The guests enjoyed themselves and celebrated until deep in the night. And in true French tradition there was, of course, an after-party in the city. Yeah … in Europe you don’t stop a wedding party at midnight that is where you just get started.
What a wonderful wedding on the beaches of Melbourne.
