Location, Location – Wedding Photography Locations in Launceston, Tasmania

Where in Launceston can you go that are openly available for wedding photography?  I have made a list of all the places I can think of, I apologise for some of the very old photos and editing!

Wedding ceremonies may be held in any of Launceston’s public parks, with no fee charged , check the Launceston City Council website for more details.

City Park.  The City Park is huge, this is just a couple of shots from the “monkey” end of the park, there is also the beautiful rotunda, and beautiful plants and trees all around.

Wayne and Renae’s Wedding Launceston Wedding Photographer

Well the weekend finally arrived, April 4th 2009. My step-brother asked me to take the photos at his wedding to Renae.
I gladly said yes. I was rather nervous as this is only the second wedding I have done, and it had been over a year since I did the first one.

I used two cameras both with different lenses, saved me switching all the time. My dad was kind enough to lend me his camera for the day.

I was at Renae’s house at 7.30am. I went with her and the bridesmaids who I also knew to get their make up done at Glow in Launceston. We weren’t even there for an hour, which is fantastic, back to Renae’s to get the dress on.



Renae arrived at the ceremony in a lovely old car, the driver must have thought he was a bit of a photographic know it all as he was telling me I couldn’t focus through the glass, and I had to get a photo with the rose on the front of the car.

The ceremony began at 11.30am, followed by family shots across the road from the church in the park.

We finally got through all the family (me included – self timer) and headed down to the Tamar River edge, unfortunately the tide was heading out (we already knew this) so we found some little spots around Stillwater cafe to use, they even let us pose on the vespa!

Haven’t blogged for ages – how slack of me.
I voted for my favourite Michael Jackson songs and left him a birthday message on the MJ50 website.
In return I got my name in the cd artwork.
How awesome.
