We were delighted to photograph Loretta & Geoff’s late summer Friday wedding with family and friends at the beautiful Polperro Winery at Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula.
When the groom arrives with a bow-tie wearing dog, you know it’s going to be a great wedding! The dog’s wet paws all over the bride’s dress on arrival could have dampened the mood for some but not these two!
The marriage ceremony was conducted on the lawn overlooking the vines and the rolling hills of the peninsula, followed by a few photos of the newly married couple around the gardens and vines, before moving inside to join their guests for a long and leisurely lunch at this fabulous winery.

Melbourne’s Budget Wedding Photography were delighted to photograph the wedding of Robyn & David in Frankston recently.
With Covid-19 border restrictions in place, the guest list was reduced in size for those allowed inside the church for the ceremony, but nobody was left out! Friends and relatives in Melbourne and across the border in Adelaide and Sydney, were able to watch the entire ceremony and speeches which were all professionally live streamed in high definition using a 4 camera set up.
Not only were guests at home able to watch the live events unfold, but both the newlyweds and family will be able to enjoy watching the day again at a later date as the footage is automatically uploaded to a private server as it’s filmed. A very impressive service! If you’re considering live streaming your wedding ceremony or elopement in Melbourne then please get in touch and we’ll put you in contact with the live streaming wizards.
Following the ceremony and speeches, and while guests mingled (socially distanced obvs!) we photographed the newly married couple in and around the church since the Melbourne weather had done it’s occasional crazy thing and thrown up a storm for the day. The weather didn’t dampen anybody’s enthusiasm and the modern church served us perfectly for the wedding portraits so we captured a great selection of photos for the couple to treasure.
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!
