We were delighted to be able to photograph Kylie & Eric’s Melbourne registry office wedding earlier in the year, which was followed up with family photos and portraits of the happy couple afterwards in Treasury and Fitzroy Gardens. I love the way they are rocking their own style – check out the ace tatts.

The Mornington Peninsula serves as the home to some of the most stunning and panoramic wedding venues and it is not a big surprise that this is a top choice of destination among many couples planning their wedding.

Check out the following wedding venues on the Peninsula and see if something suits your taste and style.

Eagle Ridge

With your wedding being one of the most important days of your life, Eagle Ridge goes to extraordinary lengths to make sure that it will be as successful as you want it to be. With one of Mornington Peninsula’s most beautiful function spaces, the romantic gardens, opulent ballroom, exceptional service and delicious catering, everything at Eagle Ridge works to guarantee you the best wedding day for you and your guests.

Stillwater at Crittenden offers a very stunning vineyard wedding venue that overlooks the lake. They also take great pride in their multi-award winning menus combined with exceptional service or you can also have it at your chosen venue through their latest offering, Freshwater Catering.

All Smiles Sorrento Ocean Beach

For the ultimate beach wedding venue, All Smiles Sorrento Ocean Beach is your best choice. This wedding venue on the Mornington Peninsula boasts of one of the most exclusive addresses in the entire Australian coast. Located only a few meters from Sorrento’s ocean beach on Mornington Peninsula, this venue basks in an uninterrupted and elevated 180 percent views of Bass Straight and its panoramic coastline. With a contemporary and modern feel, this venue offers a unique and exciting alternative to the ever predictability of today’s mainstream venues for weddings.

Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove

Montalto Restaurant’s relaxed elegance has been set in a harmonious and striking landscape building that features timber frames, rough hewn floor boards and rammed earth. Through the floor to ceiling windows, you can make the most out of the rambling and breathtaking rural outlook of olive groves, vines, lakes, wetlands, sculptures and so much more.

Lindenberry at Red Hill

If you want your wedding to have a distinctive touch, Lindenberry is your most idyllic option. Nestled right in the heart of Mornington Peninsula’s expansive vineyards and rolling hills, with 30 acres of formally manicured gardens, a picturesque wedding is what you can expect at Lindenberry.

Peppers Moonah Links

Also called as The Home of Australian Golf, Peppers Moonah Links Resort is a renowned and prestigious venue on the luxurious expanse of the Mornington Peninsula. Situated just more than an hour from Melbourne, Peppers Moonah Links Resort is a stunning spot for weddings.  There may even be time for a round of golf before the nuptials!

Coast Blairgowrie

Coast is found in the village of Blairgowrie and directly opposite of the foreshore. This offers a very relaxed environment for you to enjoy this most special occasion in your life. They deliver intimate functions for 40 to 100 guests, ensuring attention to detail and exceptional hospitality service. For a personal approach for your wedding, this venue is right for you.

Tarnuk Room at Australian Gardens

Not strictly the Mornington Peninsula, but you could transform your wedding to the wedding of the century by choosing Tarnuk Room. Offering an unrivaled and unique catering experience combined with outstanding rooms with the most enviable vistas, the venue can tailor a unique venue to fit your needs.

Being football fanatics and madly in love, where else would you they choose to get married?  Gabby & David are big AFL fans so selecting the MCG as their wedding venue probably wasn’t much of a surprise to most of their guests.

With a ceremony packed with family and friends in The Long Room above the MCG ground, the bride made her entrance by walking the length of the room accompanied by a string quartet.

Following the warm and relaxed ceremony conducted by Kim McClelland, the couple and their family moved to the field for family photos before concentrating on photos of just the two of them together.  We used their affordable wedding photography booking to get photos on the field, in the stands using the veil for some movement and in the foreground as well as some wedding photos using the scoreboard on the second level of the interior as a backdrop.

We loved being part of your wedding and we thank you for selecting Budget Wedding Photography as your photographers – all the very best for married life.

Melbourne has countless wedding photography locations. As one of the big cities in Australia, wedding photography can have different aspects here. From the stylish and busy city life to vineyards and vintage farms, a lot of couples in Melbourne can have numerous options on where they want their photos to be taken.

If you are still choosing locations for your affordable wedding photography in Melbourne, here are some of the best options:

Botanic Gardens

It’s a picturesque haven for most wedding photographers. It’s also an important resource for conservation, horticulture, science, and education. Built in 1846, Botanic Gardens extend over thirty-six hectares and display a diverse collection of thousands of plants from across the globe, including threatened and rare species. It is also considered as one of the best examples of Victorian era gardens globally and hosts year-round picnics, tours, weddings, and events.

Botanic Gardens is also one of the most famous tourist attractions in Melbourne. Millions of visitors visit this place every year. The visitor facilities and services also include a visitor centre, interpretive signs, guided walks, Gardens Shop, and two cafes. Garden Explore is also a relaxing way to discover a thirty-eight hectare garden. If you like a stunning view for wedding photos, Botanic Gardens should be your location for affordable wedding photography, but please keep in mind that permits should be obtained before shooting here.

Parliament House

This place has always been a favorite location for wedding photos, particularly for those who want classic shots, involving huge columns, massive ornate wooden doors and the steps leading up to the building.

St Kilda Beach

Beach shots are said to be risky for the reason that it could kill your hair with the wind, yet flowing veil shots may look beautiful and St Kilda beach can offer you stunning shots that will surely amaze you.

Barracks on St Kilda Rd

Nestled on St Kilda Road in Melbourne, Victoria Barracks is one of the most beautiful government buildings and known for its historical and architectural significance. If you want photos that are elegant and vintage, this location is a good choice.

Flinders St Station

Flinders St Station is basically a railway station located at the corner of Swanston Streets and Flinders in Melbourne. But, for many wedding photographers, it isn’t just a railway station as it can also be a perfect spot for wedding photos.

Royal Exhibition Buildings

Royal Exhibition Building offers a stunning background ideal for wedding photography. With the building’s intricate detailing and romantic arches, it’s one of the best locations for your wedding photos.

Carlton Gardens

Carlton Gardens has always been a favourite location for cheap wedding photography in Melbourne. It is well recognised in Melbourne as there’s no permit fee to pay when using the place. The location is always popular and can be busy any time of the week and reaches a crescendo during weekends when it has as many as two hundred couples. If you like to use this wedding photography location, see to it that there is no any major event going on at Carlton Royal Exhibition as it becomes chaotic. There are some sites both nearby and within Carlton Gardens that are also perfect for shoots. It’s not often you get to have a UNESCO listed heritage building in your wedding photos!

We always ask our affordable wedding photographers in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra what they have seen worth sharing on their wedding shoots and which other professional wedding vendors were in attendance.  Quite often we get some great feedback.

There is a newish photobooth hire company on the circuit at the moment and they seem to be aiming to please!  Not only are they really well priced, but they have also upgraded all their photobooths to make them top notch quality and offer more pleasing result.

Take these photos for example – the white background shows the standard wedding photobooth hire that you usually get, and the shots with the red curtain show the newly upgraded photo booth that features a strobe and beauty dish.  I think you’ll agree – the new setup really is excellent, offering  a far stronger photo, that clients will absolutely love.  Photo courtesy of Elegant Hire Photobooths.

It’s always a pleasure to venture out of Melbourne up to the Yarra Valley for our budget wedding photography service, and even more so when it’s at a great couple like Beryl & Pete.

This shot was just before they moved back into the restaurant at Tokar Estate for lunch – don’t they look happy together!  The love just radiates out of these two, and they just don’t stop laughing at each others jokes – such fun to be around!

Melbourne rolled out one of it’s perfect summer days for Lucas & Ainsley’s wedding in Studley Park earlier in the year.

Huge shady trees, plenty of friends, a river and rowing boat – all the ingredients for a fun day!

Thanks for booking your budget wedding photography with us guys – all the very best for the future!

I had never been to a Pagan wedding before so was intrigued and didn’t quite know what to expect from it.

As it turns out, its very much like a regular wedding, in that there is a legal document that is signed and much of the same things are said, but there is alot more to it in terms of participation, props and symbolism.

The venue for the marriage ceremony was on the road out to Ballarat, but as you know we like to travel so that made a fun day out.

Wherever you happen to be getting married and whatever the type of wedding you’re hosting then please do give us a call or visit the website to check out our cheap wedding photography prices.  We think you’ll agree, they’re hard to beat!!

We recently had the pleasure of photographing Simon and Anastasia’s wedding in St Kilda.

The ceremony was preceded by affordable wedding photos of the couple in St Kilda Botanical Gardens with it’s beautiful rose garden (perfect for a wedding ceremony!) and long avenues fringed with palms.

Don’t they look stunning!
