Wedding Albums

July 2, 2014 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

When I first went into photographing weddings many years ago I had no idea that I’d enjoy planning and making wedding albums with clients as much as I do. Apart from the actual wedding day, it’s my next favorite part of what I do. It’s an opportunity to relive the day, to highlight the connections, the memories and the moments and bring it all together and make something tangible after everything else has been packed away. I love the process we go through with each couple, reliving their favorite moments, photographs and highlights and retelling that story. There is nothing more gratifying then handing over a beautiful printed custom made album for my couples to treasure and share with generations to come. There is nothing more important to a photographer then seeing your images printed, enjoyed and preserved.

Images are of Verica and Andrea’s Album and Parent Album.

A little bit of rain doesn’t need to dampen your wedding day. Umbrellas can make for some fun photos! You can also shelter under verandas, rotundas or even have some photos inside. Stormy skies can also make for some amazing dramatic photos. So never fear, there is always a silver lining!

Wednesday Wedding Inspo: Wedding date

Now this is a mighty fine way to make sure you always remember your wedding date!

photographer melbourne 0135 Wednesday Wedding Inspo: Wedding date

I realised that with the busy year it was last year I never got a chance to post photos from my travels. Considering I visited Mexico, Spain, Morocco, New Zealand and Japan last year I thought it was a bit amiss of me! I thought I should get back to posting these photos and I’m aiming to put up a couple once a week!

To begin with is a few photos taken around Cordoba, Spain. Cordoba is a fascinating medieval town with a strong Islamic influence.

Steph and Mike’s fabulously fall Melbourne wedding!

May 27, 2014 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

The Emu Bottom Homestead is always a lovely venue, but Steph and Mike lucked out by having their wedding just as the autumn foliage began to show around the property. The gardens were lush after recent rains, and the warm, sunny day cooled into a perfectly cosy fall night.

The couple obviously enjoyed being surrounded by their diverse group of friends and family, reflecting their broad range of interests. Because of Mike’s Ukrainian background, both he and Steph have been studying Ukrainian, and Mike even tested out his new language skills during his speech. Later on, Mike and his groomsmen surprised the guests with a not-so-traditional (and quite entertaining) take on a Ukrainian dance.

“The whole day was absolutely perfect,” Steph said afterward. “It was incredible for each of us to marry our best friend in such a beautiful place, surrounded by all our amazing family and friends.”

Steph also sweetly mentioned, “It was so great having Lizzy as our photographer. We had lots of fun and laughs—she felt like a friend rather than our photographer. Lizzy was very discreet during the ceremony and reception, which allowed us to enjoy the moment with our friends and family.”

Helen and Jonny’s Homestead Wedding

April 24, 2014 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

No amount of rain could dampen Helen and Jonny’s beautiful wedding day. Between pre-event photos at the grand Rupertswood Mansion and their wedding at the Emu Bottom Homestead, the festivities seamlessly blended old-school glamour with a relaxed rusticness.

After spending the night at the mansion with her bridal party — including her twin sister, sister, and best friend — Helen was relaxed and ready for a fun day, no matter what the forecast said.

Built in 1874, the Italianate Rupertswood Mansion was originally home to Sir William John Clarke, Australia’s first native-born Baronet, and it became a power seat in the great English tradition. It was a natural fit for Helen and her family, who originally hail from the U.K. With the ladies in hats and the boys in bow ties, everyone looked quite regal as we took photos in the stately library.

Afterward, we travelled just a few minutes down the road, where the couple exchanged vows on the gorgeous verandah of the Emu Bottom Homestead. As the rain fell on the slate roof, Helen and Jonny performed a lovely hand-fascinating ceremony to represent their new bond.

Post-ceremony, the guests enjoyed an impressive lemonade stand while we snapped up a break in the weather to grab some dramatic shots as dusk descended on the Homestead.

Sarah and Tim’s Sunny Emu Bottom Wedding

April 24, 2014 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

Having been together since their high school days, Sarah and Tim have a long and loving history together. Every detail of their thoughtfully planned Emu Bottom wedding celebrated their past — while looking forward to the future.

Dressed in a mini tuxedo, Sarah and Tim’s adorable son Braidy was an ever-present part of the day. And for the family members who couldn’t be there, they lit a candle in a heartfelt gesture.

At the reception, Sarah’s father played a song on the guitar and sang for the couple’s first dance. In her vintage-style lace gown, Sarah looked stunning in the spotlight. Guests settled in at tables named for significant places and events from Sarah and Tim’s relationship, from “Nyah” (the name of their first dog together) to “Plenty River” (the street where they first lived together and the name of the estate where they bought land).

Best of luck, Sarah and Tim!
