Wet weather wedding photos

By MarkJ - 10 April 2009 29

Getting hitched next weekend and it’s looking like there might be some rain about. We’ve had some places picked for photos but they’re all a bit outdoorsy, so looking for some suggestions of scenic locations that might be a bit more sheltered from the elements.

The ceremony’s at Gold Creek and the reception at the Kurrajong, so ideally we’d be looking for something near either of those or on the way between them, though willing to make a bit of a detour for some nice shots. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

What’s Your opinion?

As I understand it you can’t take wedding photos at OPH unless you’re having the function there. Shots on the front steps are OK though.

queanbeyan railway station was good for us. and the photographer even managed to time it when there was a train. we amused quite a full train as we took photos on the train and on the platform…

What about Kings Hall inside Old Parliament House?

I was going to suggest OPH too, but why stop at Kings hall? I think weeding shots from inside the old Rep’s and Senate chambers would be a bit of a hoot and certainly novel.

and that should have been ‘wedding’ not ‘weeding’.

Hire pome bastard have you seen his photos? Awesome!

That’s very kind of you, but landscapes I my thing, and I’m utter cr@p at portraiture.

I would never risk the ire of someone by even pretending to be able to shoot a wedding!

Thanks for all the suggestions. As luck would have it, looks like it’s going to be fine on the weekend anyway…

It’s a public location so there shouldn’t be a problem although there are rules against commercial type photos from some locations there. Just have a word to the guards before setting up and there should be no problems, or just wait until one of them comes across for a chat. They don’t always, it depends on the guard on duty. They see enough photographers up there at odd hours that they aren’t too bad about it. Just don’t get in the way of others and block foot traffic too much.

Ever tried taking a photo of the building from anywhere other than the front. 🙂

Things have certainly changed since I was studying and stayed on the roof for a few hours for a couple of nights taking photos for an assignment. Didn’t get so much as a g’day out of the guards then. Mind, we don’t even have 24 hour roof access now anyway.

*sigh*
