Sydney is one of the most beautiful cities on earth and a prime tourist destination. It is also chock full of many great places to take fantastic wedding photos. In fact, there are far more suggestions than we could ever get around to in the scope of this article, however, we will mention some of the more desirable ones. With that said, let’s begin.
Our first suggestion is located smack dab in the center of Sydney: The Rocks. With its hearty mix of richly textured backdrops, fantastic architecture plus hidden little alleyways, it makes a great location to shoot some great wedding photographs. Also, by virtue of its central location near the harbor, it is very close to some outstanding reception venues and historical landmarks.
Next up is the Royal Botanic Gardens. Seeing that it is a prime destination for folks seeking relaxation and peaceful tranquility, it only stands to reason it is also a great location for some wedding photographs. It is right in the heart of Sydney; the Royal Botanic Garden is brimming with prime backdrops where you can take pictures of your special day.
Seeing that Sydney is situated along one of the more beautiful shorelines on the planet, we would be remiss if we did not mention wedding photography locations on the waterfront. The beaches are world famous and offer options such as taking the photos with yachts sailing in the background, glistening waters for a backdrop and so forth.
Lavender Bay, located just north of the city itself is a huge favorite. It provides a fantastic view of Sydney’s Harbor Bridge. Additionally there are some beautiful gardens, along with ancient tunnels and walls surrounding the vicinity. And get this; there are excellent places nearby such as Manly and Mosman where you can also hold a wedding reception.
Another spot, which may at first thought seem odd but is wildly popular, is the University of Sydney. With flawless landscaping and lush tree coverage, it not only makes a perfect spot for wedding photos, but the ceremony and reception as well. Definitely something to think about.
There are so many places in and around Sydney that make great wedding photo locations that you could literally go into thousands and thousands of words describing them. The best advice is when looking for a photographer that you find one who is well versed in the finest wedding photo places. Also, make sure that they have a healthy portfolio of previous wedding shoots from these locations so you can get a good idea as to how they will turn out.
