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!
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!
Simon & Patrizia picked a scorcher for their intimate wedding in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne. A 40c day is a hot day by anyone’s standards, but these two took it all in their stride.
Following their ceremony on the Taxodium Lawn, they posed for photos with friends and family and then ventured into the shade for couple photos before retiring to the pub for some well earned refreshments!
Thanks for allowing us to be part of your day by photographing your wedding. We hope you love your wedding photos!
Carolyn & Jonathan held their recent wedding ceremony in Melbourne’s beautiful Botanic Gardens, and guests were delivered to the gardens by a vintage red double decker bus.
Following the ceremony, the couple and their guests enjoyed drinks supplied by Blake’s Feast on the lawn with a few family photos with their affordable Melbourne wedding photographers, before moving on to their reception in Port Melbourne.
We love photographing backyard weddings! They’re always so relaxed and usually alot of fun. Salli & Dave’s was no exception, with an in-ground trampoline, loads of kids, plenty of bubbles and loads of fabulous food. Their guests had a ball; especially the younger ones. Cakes, trampolines, very short ceremony – it was the perfect wedding for kids!
Fun and laughter were definitely the order of the day, and for the few hours that we attended there was plenty of it knocking around. In fact, it was probably the jolliest wedding we’ve ever shot – the laughter and joking was constant which was really enjoyable to photograph. Add to it the location of Bayside Melbourne and you have the perfect ingredients for relaxed and fun wedding photography.
Are you planning a backyard wedding? We’d love to hear from you so send us a message!
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.
Alisha & Gavin booked us as their affordable wedding photographers for their recent wedding ceremony at Black Rock Yacht Club at Half Moon Bay.
Following a fashionably late entrance, Alisha posed for photos with her baby daughter and parents before her daughter walked the aisle ahead of her.
With a succinct and warm but meaningful, ceremony conducted by Geoff Padgett guests moved inside the yacht club to enjoy canapes and drinks, as well as soak up the glorious summers day over the bay.
The wife of Celebrant Geoff Padget is also a wedding photographer wannabe so couples also get a second set of photos from her camera that she has been using on the day, which probably includes similar scenes from alternative angles, shots over the main photographers shoulder, possibly focussing on different guests or aspects. As an added extra, it’s a pretty good freebie!
We look forward to photographing many more weddings at Black Rock Yacht Club as it’s got such a stunning view. Nearby is the famous Cerberus, which is possibly the best fish and chip restaurant in the whole bayside area, which is great for a snack on the way home!
Are you looking for an affordable wedding venue in Melbourne? Have you taken a look at Black Rock Sailing Club yet?
It has to be one of the best value wedding venues in the Melbourne area, with stunning views across Half Moon Bay, HMS Cerberus and across to the city.
The area is also a perfect wedding photography location with some really fun options, and all just a stones throw from the venue.
We recently had the pleasure of photographing a wedding at this venue and enjoying the spectacular views across, brilliant blue water and sandstone cliffs.
It all adds up to be a great value wedding venue with the added bonus that you also get uninterrupted views of the sunset. Value for money with great views – it gets our vote!
Are you getting married at Black Rock Sailing Club? We’d love to chat with you about your plans and our affordable wedding photography packages!
