The cost of a photographer can make up a large portion of a wedding budget, so it is important to find a venue that will make for fabulous photographs.
The Dolphin Coast has an incredible range of wedding venues and locations that would make striking backdrops for your photographs of this special day.
The coastline all along the Dolphin Coast is perfect for beach photoshoots.
There are of course some special spots that will take your wedding photos to new heights.
But if your heart is set on beach photos remember that winter is the best time of year for this.
