Sam and Irosh
With their Sri Lankan wedding planned for the evening at La Mirage in Somerton, we joined Sam, Irosh and their bridal party in the city for an afternoon-long shoot in the city. We had a busy day planned and after starting at their hotel, the lovely old Windsor Hotel in Melbourne, we went shooting at Parliament House, the Treasury and Fitzroy Gardens before heading over to Docklands to play on the Webb Bridge.
All of these locations are popular for wedding photos and we had to dodge several other bridal parties as we travelled around the city, creating much amusement for everyone involved! With such a variety of locations we ended up with a superb selection of city, park and waterside shots and fortunately La Mirage was a 30 minute drive away so they all had time to recover on the journey! The day ended with a traditional Buddist Poruwa ceremony which, for us, was the highlight of the occasion.
Here is a selection of shots taken in and around the city, from Fitzroy Gardens to Docklands.
