We all love a trip to the Mornington Peninsula! Even more so if we’re photographing a wedding there, so it was with great pleasure that we agreed to photograph K&M’s wedding at The Royal Hotel in Mornington on a warm December day last year.
Following a friendly and relaxed ceremony inside the hotel and while guests enjoyed drinks and canapes in the bar and beer garden, we took the newlyweds and immediate family for a quick scoot around Mornington for photos at the beach, beach boxes, Mornington Park and around the harbour area.
Following photos with the couple we returned to the hotel to photograph guests mingling and congratulating the couple as well as a mock-cut of the wedding cake prior to guests being welcomed into the dining room for the evening’s celebrations and entertainment. We captured the bride and groom being announced to the room and a few brief speeches before departing.
We packed all this photography in to just 3 hours; so for a very affordable price of around $1000 we managed to provide an extensive selection of affordable wedding photos that covered a short time prior to the ceremony, the marriage ceremony, family photos, couple portraits with the bride and groom, mingling and social photos, cutting the cake photo and reception entry. We think you’ll agree, that’s a pretty good deal!
After we finish up at a wedding we always make a point of treating ourselves to some excellent fish and chips at the beach before heading home to Melbourne which always makes wedding photography bookings on the Mornington Peninsula our absolute favourite!
We were delighted to be selected as the photographers for A&D’s recent wedding at Ballara Receptions in Eltham near Melbourne.
Ballara Receptions is a popular choice for wedding ceremonies and receptions and as affordable wedding photographers in Melbourne we often find ourselves there in the beautiful chapel and gardens for wedding photos with family and friends.
Often, couples host their ceremony in the gardens in fine weather, but the chapel is an elegant and easy alternative for those Melbourne days that can be a little unpredictable or wet. Wedding photos with family group shots, bridal party and couple in the gardens follows the ceremony, while guests get to enjoy drinks and canapes before the reception starts.
Ballara is great as a wedding venue since it offers a location for both the ceremony and reception in one location, thereby keeping wedding costs affordable and the opportunity to spend that money on your budget friendly wedding photography.

We were pleased to photograph L&C’s Melbourne marriage registry wedding which was attended by their friends and family, including the bride’s side of the family who took the time to fly out especially for it.
Following the ceremony and family photos outside the Old Treasury Building on Spring Street, Melbourne, we moved on to Treasury Gardens for some relaxed photos with the couple before they rejoined their guests for their wedding lunch.
Not being afraid to be themselves, the colour blue was very much the theme, with it appearing in the handcrafted paper flowers, the bride’s hair, jewellery and the groom’s outfit too. I thought the cowboy/girl boots were a nice touch.
We love photographing weddings at the Melbourne Marriage Registry and nearby Treasury Gardens so if you are planning a wedding please do get in touch to discuss your affordable wedding photography options.
Gary & Maryanne were recently married at the Victoria Marriage Registry in South Yarra. This is a private marriage registry and completely unrelated to the Victorian Marriage Registry in Spring Street, Melbourne CBD, but perfectly suited to small marriage ceremonies with just a handful of guests.
Housed on the ground floor of what seems to be a residential address this marriage venue also seems to double as an art gallery specialising in Aboriginal artwork which makes for a great backdrop for photos.
Following their short and intimate marriage ceremony, we were pleased to photograph their family photos at the nearby Melbourne Botanic Gardens in South Yarra.
Blessed with a warm and sunny day we spent over an hour strolling the gardens for photos of the couple following some more formal shots with their family and friends.
Hailing from the Mornington Peninsula, Gary & Maryanne enjoy visiting Melbourne so it seemed fitting that they should celebrate their new union with photos in one of their favourite photography locations in Melbourne.
Clare & Maxwell hosted their wedding at the gorgeous Sunnyside Villa in Bacchus Marsh and the Budget Wedding Photography gang were asked to join them and document the day!
Following bridal preparations in Footscray, the couple were joined by 60 guests and married by their celebrant in the gardens of Sunnyside Villa.
The marriage ceremony was followed by family and bridal photos in the gardens. The gardens are extensive and beautifully maintained so absolutely perfect for use in wedding photography.
Our timing was great, as we just finished our photos before the heavens opened again – phew!
We recently had the pleasure of working with Pete the Celebrant on one of our recent affordable wedding photography bookings in Melbourne and we’re pleased to say that he’s a lovely chap to work with.
Pete has a lovely calm manner and conducts a professional and heartfelt service which couples seem to adore. Not only that, but he seems to be very competitively priced compared to other marriage celebrants in Melbourne.
Pete also does something that we loved – he leaves an advert in the form of something very useful. Some celebrants hand out business cards, but Pete leaves a bottle with his name on it. It certainly caught my eye and I imagine it must have caught other peoples too. A brilliant idea, well executed – he must have paid attention in that Marketing 101 class!
So, if you’re looking for a money saving tip for your Melbourne wedding, combine Pete the Celebrant with one of our budget wedding photography packages and you’ll have plenty more spending money for your honeymoon!
Tania & Scott held their recent wedding at Potters receptions in Warrandyte and went all out on the entertainment and decoration. Who thought of hiring a pinball machine to keep the kids occupied? Genius!
Pinball machines and kids entertainers aside, our favourite part of the wedding day (apart from the marriage ceremony and all the beautiful affordable wedding photography of course!) was their awesome red and black wedding cake.
Consisting of two tiers, this cake was covered in a cream coloured icing, black flowers and then drizzled with a crimson red jus which looked thick, sweet and very delicious!

S&J were married at the beautiful Yarra Ranges Estate in Monbulk recently and your Budget Wedding Photography team were there to capture the day for them.
With sweeping views of the Dandenong Ranges and the Yarra Valley, the venue is a beautiful location for a wedding. Not only does it feel like a world away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne, but it is also very competitively priced compared to many of the other wedding venues in the Dandenongs and Yarra Valley region.
If you’re planning your wedding in the Yarra Valley, we encourage you to start considering your photographer options as soon as your venue is booked. Our affordable wedding photography is very popular and gets booked up quite quickly, so don’t hang around!
Jason & Bianca chose Eynesbury Homestead as their wedding ceremony venue, with a large reception to follow later that day in the centre of Melbourne.
Following their intimate ceremony on the lawn in front of the homestead, we strolled the grounds of Eynesbury and used some of the beautiful scenery and historic buildings for their affordable wedding photography session.
After sending the couple their wedding photos we were delighted to read their review on Easy Weddings which described how happy they were with both their budget wedding photographer and also their resulting photos.
If you’re planning a wedding at Eynesbury Homestead, or anywhere else in Australia then we’d love to hear from you! Our affordable wedding photography is very popular and gets booked up quite quickly, so don’t hang around!
Sam & John were married in the Rotunda at Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens with their nearest and dearest squeezing in to the rose covered structure in the middle of summer.
Being located in the middle of one of Melbourne’s most beautiful and manicured gardens meant that we had plenty of photo opportunities at numerous locations once the marriage ceremony had been completed. As the sun set to the west of the Melbourne city skyline we enjoyed the last of the light for the affordable wedding photography with the couple before moving on to their reception venue in South Yarra.
