#1 & #2  Emerald Pools and Turquoise Lakes

There are numerous lakes and pools in the South West. Evedon Park, Burekup (above) and Black Diamond Lake (below), both are surrounding the Collie River Valley in Geographe are by far our favourites. The striking colour contrast to a white dress is mesmerising and its a unique scene that not many brides take advantage of. Images by Henderson Photographics

#3  Raw Beauty of the South Coast

The coastline along the south coast of the Great Southern is truly diverse. Home to the stillest waters in bays and lagoons while not far around the corner, you'll find sheer granite cliffs. Moody skies and crashing waves compliment a winter wedding and the sparkling waters and coastal wildflowers are a picture perfect setting in spring.

#4  The Fresh Open Forests 

Australia's South West has many forests; each cast spectacular dappled light and always providing an enchanting photo. Most famous is the Tuart Forest in Geographe, Boranup Forest in the Margaret River region, the towering Karri forests in the Southern Forests region and the ancient Tingle forest in the Walpole Wilderness area.

#6  Stunning Country Gardens

A garden wedding is at the top of the list for many brides. Sheltered from the wind and pretty as a picture. There are stunning gardens throughout the south west but particularly in the Blackwood River Valley and Geofgraphe region. To find the cream of the crop your can visit www.opengarden.org.au

#7  Captivating Rock Formations at Sunset

The Margaret River region's 130 kilometer stretch of coastline is world renowned for its surf breaks but what we love even more is the breathtaking rock formations; in particular Canal Rocks and Sugarloaf Rock. The western-facing coastline is also a perfect location to watch the sun set over the ocean. Image: Canal Rocks by Henderson Photographics.

#8  Frolic in the Vines

It's a popular choice and for good reason. No matter what time of year, a vineyard puts on a beautiful display. In autumn there is a colourful sea of their deciduous leaves, in winter there's a rustic charm in bare vines, spring brings fresh grewth and summer brings striking contrast with surrounding golden grasses.

#9  Large Scale Art in the City and Charming Town Scapes

The cities of Bunbury and Albany are the hubs of our art culture. Both have a growing collection of large scale street art murals (over 40 in total) painted by renowned local and international artists. Equally as captivating the towns of the South West is a different type of art; where the main streets themselves radiate charm. Lined with trees, perfectly tended flowering planters, murals and colourful shop fronts. All of our cities and towns have their own unique identity worth capturing in your photos as a time capsule of what the world looked like on the day of your wedding. Image by Henderson Photographics.

#10  Beaches and Limestone Cliffs

It goes without say that beach shots are a must if you're near the coast but picking areas that also have unique surroundings means you can get a variety of water and landscape shots. Limestone cliffs are a common feature around the South West coast, some easily accessible and others in secluded locations, so if you have the time, you know you'll have the place to yourself.
