There are so many choices when it comes to wedding venues. The Dandenong Ranges boasts some of the most exquisite wedding venues in Victoria. My personal top 3 picks for wedding venues in the Dandenong Ranges are as follows: - Wedding Venue 1: Nathania Springs Receptions have both an indoor chapel and an outdoor garden gazebo. The gardens are lush and gorgeous with plenty of opportunities to capture gorgeous photos in the surrounding areas. This wedding venue can hold between 70-180 guests so has a great scope for any type of wedding. - Wedding Venue 2: Lyrebird Falls also has both an indoor chapel and a gorgeous outdoor gazebo. With a red carpet leading to the alter and surrounded by lush greenery….it doesn’t get much better than this. Wedding photos are stunning in any part of this wedding venue. The little bridge surrounded by ferns is the signature wedding photo for this wedding. Accommodating 70-115 guests to cater for most weddings. - Wedding Venue 3: Marybrooke Manor has perfectly manicured gardens with separate areas to take photos whether it be in front of the fountain, gates at night or by the famous oak tree, there are so many opportunities to capture the connections between you and your partner. Holding up to 100 guests, it is great for your average sized weddings.
You might have just become engaged or have been engaged for awhile. Regardless of how far you are into your wedding planning, you must plan an engagement photography session or your wedding might be a total disaster! Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. Understandably you want everything to be perfect! After all it is your one day…..you will never be able to get it back….. Your memories of your special day will fade….. All that is left are photos….. Therefore, your photos are the most important part of your wedding day! SO why risk getting cheap, mediocre photos?
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! No doubt you want your wedding photography to be perfect because at the end of the day, this is what you will have left of this special day in your life.

Why Hiring A Professional Wedding Photographer Will Be The Most Important Part Of Your Wedding Budget!
A professional wedding photographer’s packages and prices can vary drastically. At the end of the day your wedding budget will play a factor. Just be really careful when choosing your wedding photographer…..cheap is not always best and generally means inexperience. Do you really want a wedding photographer with 2 weddings under their belt to photograph your wedding day that can’t be relived? Are they actually a professional wedding photographer?
Outdoor locations are perfect to create a change in your photo’s backgrounds. Using an outdoor location means you can have a huge variety in background just by moving one metre. To change backgrounds in the studio takes a lot more time and effort. The best part about using an outdoor location is having a wider range of different looking photos based on different backgrounds. Outdoor locations can be used for family photography, maternity photography, newborn photography or wedding photography……any type of photography (provided the weather is fine!)
An engagement photography session can be a good warm up to what it will be like for your wedding photography. You can work out what styles you like and what poses suit you best. Of course it doesn’t have to be engagement photography but could be a couple photoshoot…..just because…. So what clothing should you wear for this session? See some tips below to help you out.
