Doris and Sky embraced the great outdoors by visiting the iconic Carlton Gardens. This 19th century style garden proved a breathtaking backdrop for a stunning variety of wedding day photographs. The classic architecture of the Royal Exhibition Building and the impressive symmetry of the central fountain created interesting formal compositions, whilst the enchanting combination of rich Autumn tones (think atmospheric deep reds, romantic sepias and hints of yellow) and well as luminous bounties of lavender, romantically framed the newly wed couple.
