Welcome back! I’ve had a few people asking me lately for location spot ideas so thought it might not be a bad place to begin showing off some of Canberra at the same time. This first spot is deffinitely an oldie but a goodie. It’s fabulous on a hot day, a windy day even a cold day! You can’t go wrong!
Welcome to the National Gallery Sculpture Gardens. They’re the green bit out the back of the gallery overlooking Lake Burley Griffin. The Gallery itself caters for both wedding ceremonies and receptions and should you want to stay in the same place all day, is a great little spot for location photographs as well!
If you can time your day correctly (have a chat to the planners at the gallery) and find out at what time the mist gardens are on. It does make the ground a little damp so this isn’t for all couples but it does make for some fun and slightly eerie photographs!
Just before we finish up, there are some other great little spots in and around the gardens. If you decide to incorporate the sculptures, please please don’t touch them. They are people’s works of art and the gallery would prefer them to last a lifetime and not have any damage done to them. There are ways to make it look like you’re interacting without touching as we did last year.
There is also a nice little foreshore spot which has the Carillion in the background. A gorgeous little noise maker on the opposite side of the lake, also happens to be one of Canberra’s landmarks.
Best thing with any location photographs is to head along to some spots yourself pre wedding and take a little camera with you. Take some snaps and when you get home see which locations you like the best on film.
Enjoy yourselves and make your photographs, all about you 🙂
