My Ratings (7 out of 10)

Loxley on Bellbird - Ceremonies

As far as preps and ceremonies go, this is one of the nicer ones.  As you arrive in the gateway you know you have arrived at a little slice of heaven. Loxley on bellbird reception centre have put together a beautiful area for couples, guests and photographers. Wedding preparations are within the chalets dotted along the hillside and cater for many guests as well if required. The huge glass windows allow great prep shots and the rooms are always clean.

 Usually the bride will get ready in the executive suite and it comes fully equipped with a large 4 posted bed, timber floors (for colour)  and chase lounge.

The timber decks are great to photograph on and allow privacy as well.
A short stroll away is the ceremony deck which over looks Richmond and Windsor all the way to Sydney (on a clear day).
It is difficult to expose the photograph's for the ceremony and the view all at once. Especially if the sun is bright. Shadows tend to creep along the deck at certain times of the afternoon.. Skill is required and some fill flash to get it right. But when you do it is heavenly.
The only downfall if any is the limitation of movement and the one direction shooting of this deck.
Guests sometimes make it hard to move around and you don't want to annoy them too much.
it is a great group shot that the MC will set up from the balcony...
because this venue often has prep shots here as well it ranks higher than if it didn't.

 I am happy to visit again and again to this venue...

please note: these ratings are based on photography only and not the wedding couple nor their wedding day.
