Classic Style Weddings with Serendipity Photography!

With the right amount of class, sophistication and grace you can turn any kind of wedding, small or large, summer or winter, into a classically styled memorable occasion!

Classic shades many moods, from the fleeting beauty of floating transparencies, to the much more permanent richness of classical architectural detailing; from flowers that are perfectly attuned and surprisingly beautiful, to a soft summer’s evening on the water!

Classic style seeps into, and out of, every era, weaving together different moments to generate a timelessness befitting a king and a queen. By bringing together perfect locations, a stunning gown, intricate detailing and soft tones, you can create a gorgeous atmosphere for a classic wedding.

Classic Mansions and Estates!

Given our fantastically rich heritage in Melbourne, we are lucky to have an abundance of beautifully timeless architecture that work perfectly as backdrops for classic style wedding photography.  Using soft lighting, warm tones and smooth, flowing lines, at Serendipity we have mastered the art of classic wedding photography and are very pleased to be able to offer you some of our best tips! For great classic locations it’s hard to go past some of our gorgeous colonial era mansions. Possible the most glamourous and everlasting of Melbourne’s mansions is Butleigh Wootton, in Kew. Butleigh Wootton is at the height of sophistication and is the perfect classic location for ceremonies, receptions and breathtaking photographs!

Mansions and estates provide truly unique and authentic settings for classic weddings. Some other brilliant local mansions include; Montsalvat for some French countryside inspired luxury. At Serendipity Photography we have concluded that Montsalvat is one of our top all time favourites, we recommend Montsalvat for some of the truly best architecture and wedding location photography possibilities currently available in Melbourne — book in early!

Billilla Mansion is also a very versatile wedding location photography site — stunning architecture, romantic gardens and beautiful gates; and if you’re looking further afield Carrington Manor, in Shepparton, offers spectacular staircases with exquisite ironwork.

Melbourne’s Classic Heritage!

Some of Melbourne’s best examples of classic architecture is in our brilliant historical public buildings. With grand columns stretching toward the sky, arching doorways and sweeping staircases, some of our early public buildings have been painstakingly preserved by conservationists, and are now as lively and vibrant as the day they were built. Buildings like Parliament House and the Treasury still show signs of Victoria’s political heritage, and the mosaic floors of the Parliament House add a very interesting dimension to the space, the warm colours glowing underfoot. Town Halls are also wonderful settings for classic wedding photography. Built with pride and gusto, Town Halls acted as sources of inspiration and admiration at the time of their construction. South Melbourne Town Hall and Fitzroy Town Hall are both fantastic for wedding photography, with classical columns and stone work that glistens in wet weather and glows in the warm.

Other stunning examples of classic architecture are the newly renovated General Post Office, that has retained its class and grandeur beautifully, and the Royal Exhibition Building in the middle of the Carlton Gardens, one of the most charming buildings in the city .
