Looking for wedding photo locations in Melbourne that perfectly complement your wedding at The Trust? Keep reading…
Just outside the doors of The Trust, right down the street, you’ll find Hosier Lane, one of Melbourne’s most iconic laneways. Prepare to be wowed by bold colours, eclectic graffiti, and unique art installations that will work together to create the most distinctive portraits that you will ever see. If you and your loved one are into edgy, artistic and contemporary shots that truly personify everything that we love about Melbourne, then this is the spot for you.
If you’re thinking of adding Hosier Lane to the schedule for your wedding day, keep in mind that this is a tourist hotspot, so you may find a few members of the public admiring the art in the background of your shots.
Located just next door to The Trust, you’ll find the Immigration Museum, one of Melbourne’s most significant Victorian-era buildings that is primed to host stellar wedding portraits. This spot overlooks the Yarra River and is immersed in the bustle of Melbourne CBD, offering a heritage backdrop that is as classy as it is romantic.
The best part of this location? It’s just outside our doors, meaning that you can pop out before, during and after your event to capture loved up portraits at all hours of the day – hello golden hour!
If you’re looking for a picturesque, nature filled backdrop, why not take a short drive across the river to the Royal Botanic Gardens? Inside the Gardens you’ll find the Glasshouse, the Fern Gully – a lush greenery oasis, and a plethora of beautiful blooms that’ll create a bold and bright backdrop. Take a stroll and be amazed at what your photographer can capture!
A tip to remember – the Botanic Gardens is huge and that’s an understatement! You’ll want to pre plan exactly where you want your portraits to be taken so that on the day you can arrive at the right location, snap those shots, and avoid strutting around in your heels for any longer than you need to.
This ones a showstopper! A short 15 minute drive away in Parkville lies the picturesque grounds of The University of Melbourne, an architectural dream that provides an historic backdrop filled with charm.
Featuring bold greenery and all of nature’s finest gifts, alongside period architecture, this is a top spot for portraits that never fails to provide classic and timeless touches. There’s a reason that so many newlyweds flock to this spot every year.
Don’t forget however, that this swoon worthy spot is still a fully functioning university, so may not be an ideal location for couples planning on tying the knot on a weekday as there will be plenty of onlookers around!
If your vision is something more classic and romantic, Parliament House may be the spot for you! Located just a 10 minute drive from The Trust, this building that opened in 1856 is one of Melbourne’s most sought after wedding portrait locations – and for good reason. Boasting trailing stairs, soaring pillars and regal finishes, Parliament House looks just as gorgeous at dusk as it does during the day. Its grand scale size allows you and your wedding party to pose and take in the historic charm and beauty of this backdrop, all without the fear of Melbourne weather putting your day into disarray. We love an undercover location!
Looking for a way to make this location even more special? How about a first look!? Imagine your partner standing at the entrance awaiting your arrival, while you ascend the staircase, your photographer in tow ready to film the moment that you two lock eyes for the first time on your wedding day. Cue the tears! What an iconic environment to head to when you wed at The trust.
All of these locations make up just one of the many reasons why The Trust is bound to take over the wedding industry in 2023. Its inner CBD location is bound to add convenience and ease to your wedding day, and we cannot wait to see what you dream up for your big day at The Trust.
