We usually don’t do many weddings on Mondays, but this year was a little different! After all, the 29th of February doesn’t come around too often. This year we were contacted to do some secret Treasury Gardens wedding photography! Leesa and Stuart had decided to elope, and Leesa’s sister Brooke asked us to head in with them and make sure they had some memorable photos of their big day.


The couple asked us to keep things quiet, as they had a big lunch with the family planned for the following weekend. They were going to announce their nuptials to everybody at that party! We had to keep social media to a minimum! Leesa and Stuart wanted to keep everything low-key and relaxed. I don’t think we have ever been to a more relaxed wedding! And that’s saying something! Only a couple of guests doubled as witnesses, celebration with coffee rather than champagne, and a quick walk through Melbourne’s Treasury gardens for a few snaps on their big day, then back home!

Wedding photography in the Treasury Gardens

Ceremonies at the Old Treasury building are perfect for a low-key wedding. With two small rooms (one seats about ten and the other about 60), Melbourne’s gorgeous gardens and laneways at your doorstep and plenty of restaurants to hold reception dinners at, the Old Treasury building provides a beautiful hub for those planning a low-key wedding. There are hundreds of places to get gorgeous wedding photos within a ten-minute walk of the venue.


This Melbourne wedding went off without a hitch! Elegant efficiency was applied to the whole morning, and we had a good time with this gorgeous couple. Leesa has an infectious smile, and the whole day was over and done with in a couple of short hours! We wish these two all the best for their future together!
