Top Wedding Photo Locations in Perth
Our pretty city of Perth is home to many fantastic wedding photo locations, some manmade, like the University of Western Australia, and some as natural as you’ll find anywhere, like the ‘big tree’ opposite the Old Swan Brewery on Mounts Bay Road. As our livelihood is in limousine and luxury car hire services we don’t expect wedding photographers to heed our advice as to where the best wedding photo locations in and around the city are to be found.
However, as we’ve been providing wedding limo hire in Perth for many years now, we’re confident we know some of the best spots. That’s what we’d like to share here.
The Matilda Bay Boat House
A beautiful spot known somewhat less romantically as the Crawley Boat Shed, the Matilda Bay Boat House is a popular spot with happy couples. Although there is a queue sometimes, especially at sunset, most get lucky straight away and the photo opportunities are outstanding.
Parking can often prove a challenge, though our experienced drivers know exactly where to park, and that’s a short distance away on a little street leading off Mounts Bay Road.
Offering a wealth of wonderful photo opportunities, the open-roofed shopping arcade of London Court is an underrated wedding photo location. Situated in the Perth CBD, parking is a breeze on weekends, even in a hired hummer limo, it’s located close to a number of prominent wedding venues, and there are some wonderful parks if you’re looking for natural photo locations nearby.
Along with the picturesque court, a lane which makes for a wonderful photo bustling on the weekend or deserted at night, the wrought-iron gates at both the Hay Street and St Georges Terrace ends provide great backdrops for wedding photos.
The University of Western Australia (UWA)
With classic and timeless architecture that many locals believe to be unparalleled throughout the city, and such warm, natural lighting in abundance, it should come as no surprise that the UWA is the top location for outdoor wedding photography in the city. There’s even a special parking spot awaiting couples who’ve arranged stretch limo hire!
Weekends are the best time for photo shoots, though don’t expect to be the only ones documenting their special day on the grounds! You need to buy a special licence to have wedding photos taken here, and also bear in mind that you can actually tie the knot on the grounds at Sunken Garden and Tropical Grove.
Extremely popular, but not overcrowded on weekends, Cottesloe Beach is still one of the top locations for wedding photography in Perth. We’ve searched for parking spaces for our wedding cars and limousines many times while our clients have beautiful photos taken with the beach and Indian Ocean in the background.
As a leading limo hire business in Perth, Bellagio Limousines has the fleet, the experience, and the chauffeurs to make your wedding day a day to remember. Along with the locations above, our limos make for wonderful wedding photography props!
