Brisbane Wedding photo location ideas

I’ve now been a Brisbane Wedding Photographer for 6 years and I can honestly say that Brisbane is one of the best place for wedding photography.

If you are searching for the perfect location to shoot your all-important wedding photos, here are few Brisbane wedding photography locations to consider for your upcoming big day.



Cross the Story Bridge to Kangaroo Point, a formation of ancient lava cliffs. Not only is this a place of beauty, Brisbane wedding photographers capture dramatic images when the sun is setting and the lights of the soaring Brisbane business district twinkle in the background. Bridal couples seem to float on water as they are photographed with river, sky, and city in the background.


At Ann Street in the heart of Brisbane is City Hall, where you can find the Museum of Brisbane. The towering pillars of its classical portico make a stunning yet traditional backdrop for wedding photographs.


Since the Brisbane River winds its way through the heart of the city, no bridal couple is too far away from the famous Eagle Street Pier and Story Bridge Backdrop.


Couples seeking a modernistic backdrop will gain photographic inspiration from the plaza in front of Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art, in Stanley Place. With its panes of glass rising dramatically from ground level, it is the location of choice for many bridal couples. An alternative is the extraordinary and futuristic Queensland Performing Arts Centre at South Bank. Its stepped white formations gleaming in the sunlight will add a unique twist to Brisbane wedding photographs.


Another alternative is the City Botanic Gardens, which is Brisbane’s oldest park with its lush tropical plants, bamboo grove, weeping fig avenue, and ornamental lily ponds. The Gardens offer so much variety for wedding photography and there isn’t enough time in one afternoon to fully explore all the gardens have to offer.



Covering 37 acres, New Farm Park is popular among future newlyweds for its gorgeous park setting and display of roses. The road that borders the park is lined with Jacarandas, which during certain times of the year display a magnificent purple.

For those interested in taking their wedding photos at New Farm Park should keep in mind that it is a public park. This means you can expect sports and other outdoor activities to occur in the park. If you don’t mind dodging a soccer ball or two, New Farm Park is perfect for your wedding photoshoot!


Originally built in 1927 and developed from a decommissioned power station, the Brisbane Powerhouse is an arts and cultural hub offering an array of performing arts, visual arts, festivals, and free community events. For this reason and its historic architecture, the Brisbane Powerhouse is popular among contemporary and modern couples for their wedding photos.

As the Powerhouse exists today as a modern entertainment hub, couples must keep in mind that cultural activities and free community events may be taking place on location on the day of your wedding.

The Brisbane Powerhouse is across the road from New Farm Park, so couples could plan a ceremony at the park and head across to the Powerhouse for their wedding photoshoot.


Covering 16 hectares in the centre of Brisbane, the Roma Street Parkland is a popular wedding photography location for its manicured gardens and stunning scenery. The world’s largest subtropical garden in a city centre, this parkland features a variety of themed gardens perfect for wedding photoshoots.

Like with other popular public parks, those thinking of heading to Roma Street Parklands must keep in mind that they may have some competition with other wedding parties to snag the ‘perfect shot’. This is especially true for weekends, as the gardens are often teeming with members of the public and tourists too.

Here some images I shot in Brisbane in the last few years.
