    Artistic Monochromatic Bridal Portraits in Sydney

    Could your bridal portraits become art? How awesome would it be for guests to realise that the artwork hanging in your home is also your bridal portraits? These newlyweds have the right idea – playing with negative space, using shadows, and getting creative with black and white photos. Those sand dunes are a gorgeous and unique backdrop too. Love this set by Aldo of Axioo.

    A Rustic Chic, Dusty Pink Vineyard Wedding in the Yarra Valley

    With deep, moody hues set against bright white blooms, and dark eucalyptus leaves contrasting textured wheat stalks, this chic wedding was simply gorgeous! The ivy-covered walls and warm wooden textures were the perfect backdrop, and we especially love the ceiling bouquet of flowers that took the place of a chandelier! The bride looked absolutely resplendent in her lacy bridal gown and classic jewellery, and the entire bridal party was truly a sight to behold. Many thanks to Jasmine A. Photography for this unbelievably beautiful set of photos.

    A Pink Rustic Garden Wedding at Emu Bottom Homestead, Australia

    With a classic wedding palette of white, green, light pink and champagne, this dreamy wedding had lots of heart, set against a rustic backdrop of woodsy elements and simple garden textures. Paying homage to their adopted home of Australia, the newlyweds centred their theme on an Australian wildflower: the king protea, which is known for its deep hues of coral and pink. The gorgeous wildflowers were a trendy touch, as was the circular backdrop for when the couple exchanged their vows. Many thanks to Anson’s Photography for this beautiful set of photos!

    A Charming Old World Chateau Wedding in Australia

    What is it about the past that makes it so fascinating and romantic? Held in an old world French chateau, this wedding was a fairytale in every way, from the prestige classic cars to the elaborate couture gowns and the impressive floral arrangements. We couldn’t believe this was actually in Victoria, Australia. Every detail of this wedding put together by Ruffles and Bells was beautifully captured, and on analogue film too. Much credit to Lilli Kad Photography for these exceptional photos!

    Bridal Portraits Shot at Cactus Country, Australia

    It’s been proven time and time again – all you really need for a great set of bridal portraits are a willing couple and the expertise of a remarkable photographer. Also, we just love the display of nature in these images. Thank you for these, Louis Gan Photography! Cactus Country is home to over 4,000 species of cacti and succulents from around the world. The couple is clearly in love with the assorted shapes and sizes of these plants, which provided them with plenty of different shots. The concentration of plants also saved them time that they would have otherwise needed to travel to different locations.

    Resplendent Blush on White Wedding at Darlington Estate Perth

The estate would be private and secluded, just as they desired.

    We see a world of adventure and joy ahead for this couple, who shot their spectacular wedding portrait album at Boranup in the south of Perth.
