Second – Carlton Gardens

Originally designed for the Melbourne International Exhibition of 1880, the Exhibition buildings and the surrounding Carlton Gardens are now World Heritage listed.

 

Features include: the elaborate Hochgurtel fountain and the circular French Fountain; plantings in honour of the Dalai Lama; avenues of mature trees and flower beds; two ornamental lakes created for the 1880 exhibition; the Melbourne Museum and the Lie of the Land sculptural installation at its entrance; the Royal Exhibition Building; the Carlton Gardens Tennis Courts; a children’s playground; and the Moreton Bay Fig trees where local aboriginals have traditionally met and socialised.

 

Boasting 26 hectares of park adjoining Victoria St, Rathdowne St, Carlton St and Nicholson St, the Carlton Gardens are easily accessible from the CBD and surrounds. Every season brings something different in the gardens; there are blooms aplenty during Spring and Summer and the grounds are awash with pastel and bright colours. In Autumn, we move into pleasant leaf tones from deep rich reds, bursts of yellow and romantic sepais. The gardens are often replanted and every time there are new plants to be discovered.

 

The Fountain in the middle also makes for great images!

Best time of day for wedding photography

  What’s a good time for your wedding photography?

Did you know a perfect photography day may not be a bright sunny day? Whilst your guests and you may love perfect blue skies, it leads to harsh shadows – not the best light for photos. A bit of cloud cover means softer light for the perfect portraits and closeups whilst some sun can make for dramatic landscapes.

 

Is rain predicted? Don’t worry, some of my best images have been taken in rain; when the wind picks up, it will create magical movement in your dress and headpiece. I’ll work with you to create some magnificant pictures, no matter what weather conditions present themselves.
