Louise and Ev are married. They've been married for (almost) 10 years. We spent a bit of time together recently celebrating and capturing their love in one of the most #beautiful places in Victoria - The Dandenong Ranges.
We wandered, we sat, we laughed (or maybe they laughed at me), we danced and we had a really, very nice time on what turned out to be a perfect autumn day.
These images were taken in and around Kalorama Park Lookout. Beautiful views, steep hills and lots of green!
Thinking of getting married in The Dandenongs? I couldn't recommend it highly enough! Picturesque, serene and quiet, and such a short drive from Melbourne. Perfect for couples who enjoy the outdoors, fresh air and a little bit of adventure. From cosy tea rooms and interiors, to incredible new and preserved parklands. We all got a little bit lost on our way, but to be honest, that was one of the best bits. Getting lost in this kind of scenery is A okay with me! The windy roads, the magical views and the steep inclines are all apart of the ride.
Personally, I love a bit of an adventure, so we wandered off the footpaths to create some beautiful images and memories. Huge shout out to Louise who did it all in the highest of high heels and was an absolute pro.
Autumn in Melbourne is such a wonderful time of year. The colours are rich and beautiful, and the weather, albeit a little on the cold side, is usually pretty mild. We had the perfect day - warm weather, clear skies and not a drop of rain in sight. I get pretty sentimental at the best of times, but it made me so appreciative to live in such a wonderful city, with a place like this at my doorstep.
There's so much to see in the Dandenong Ranges, a single blog doesn't even begin to cover it. I've compiled a small list of places that might be worth considering incorporating into your wedding day - let me know if I've missed out any of your favourites!
