Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney Wedding Photography Locations
There are so many places to take bridal photos after your ceremony in the Gardens…you don’t have to go far to find a good spot. Having some inside knowledge and 6 months of lunchtime walks inside my head makes for some good ideas for a photo spot or two or three. My recommendation for the girls, make sure you bring comfy sandals so you don’t have to walk around all day with your stunning heels and slip them back on when we’re ready to shoot.
Here’s a selection of locations that I feel would make for great bridal portraits..there are so many places I havent been to but I think i’ve covered off most of the best spots in the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney Wedding Photography locations.
A collection of rare and magnificent palm trees from all over the world with some of the wildest funkiest trees you’ll ever see. All of this makes for some great photography and beautiful green and colourful backgrounds.
Macquaries Wall and the Begonia Garden
Governer Macquarie built the wall in the 1800’s and this was the original boundary of the sea before they reclaimed the land. Historically significant, and also photographically significant for wedding photography in Sydney as there are many hidden places and benches and some stunning trees to look at while you take your bridal portraits. You would often find me here during lunchtime as I had a secret bench which I would relax on my own.
Why is this garden called the Palace Garden? Believe it or not Sydney did have a palace and it was built in this location…however with most things in Sydney, it was accidentally burnt down by some idiot who didn’t appreciate it at the time. There are some stunning trees nearby and the Rose Garden and Sunken Garden are nearby as well so there are plenty of great spots for photos here. And there is a view of the conservatorium or “con” as we called it, which there is a secret photo spot nearby.
A great spot for some alone time with your new bride or groom, it is the best spot to have some stunning photos with the million dollar view we all love. Easy access to the Opera House nearby as well as the Australian Native Rockery Garden.
Succulents, otherwise know as Cactus is the name of this garden and you will find Cactci from all over the world here. Makes for interesting photos as the colours, shapes and textures are pretty neat.
