When it comes to wedding photography in the South West, there are few more well versed in the Margaret River region than our expert shutterbugs on South West Wedding Vibes. We caught up with a few of our friends to discuss the best south west wedding photo locations – some secret, and some iconic.
Injidup Natural Spa
Nestled in the rocky cliffs of Yallingup is one of the Southwest’s most magical nature wonders Injidup Natural Spa. Here you will find hidden rock pools filled with crystal clear water, untouched nooks and crannies for the classic dash of coastal vibe.
“I’m a sucker for the light refraction and creamy light of Injidup Natural Spa. ” Ayzia Jade quotes.
Emerging from the Indian ocean near Yallingup is an enormous granite rock known as Sugarloaf Rock.
This spectacular land form is surrounded by prestine waters and edges closely to the beautiful, untouched coastline of Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, creating the most epic background to capture that perfect wedding shot.
“Sugarloaf, there are so many angles of light here. I like to venture to the bottom but if you don’t that is fine also and you get a range of lookouts also.” Says Azyia Jade.
At the end of a long, straight road in Wilyabrup is a local classic of a sunset spot for good reason. No doubt, you may share the views with a few locals and wellwishers sunsetting the day away 🙂
Right in the middle of the wine region, close to winery reception venues & Black Brewing Co to name a few, Moses Rock is only a quick trip to a rugged, coastal backdrop for your wedding photos. A well-maintained staircase makes access easy down to the beach, and once there the serenity washes over you.
Emma MacAulay quotes ‘Perfect Rocky beach location, Its ideal for sunset photos and only a small drive from many wedding venues in the south west.’
Experience magic and charm of the Wellington Forest is located a 30-minute drive from Bunbury and Collie and boasts 17,000 hectares of Western Australia’s unique cascading Jarrah, Marri, and Yarri forests trees. Hidden within the forest lies the beautiful calm waters of the Wellington dam, for you to take in its breathtaking views and to get your ultimate wedding shot.
“If you are drawn to the Bunbury area, Wellington Forest incorporates a rustic forest charm that can’t be found anywhere else nearby.” quotes Emma MacAulay.
Looking for something inland? Located between the coast and Caves road is the majestic Boranup Forest.
Become fully immersed in nature and be surrounded by an abundance of towering Karri Trees, making for the most breathtaking wedding photos.
Boranup Forest becomes particularly magical in the late afternoon, as the warm setting sunlight glows and reflects amongst the trees.
Ayzia Jade comments “Boranup Drive is also a magic spot and I like to take my couples to Contos after for the last light coastal feel for a mix!”
Otherside of the Moon – Cape Naturaliste
“Perfect if you’re into the drama of cliffside photos – giving your wedding images that something extra, especially as the sun is falling below the horizon.” Explains Emma MacAulay
