When nailing down a wedding plan, a getting ready location for your big day is one of the most important choices you’ll make. Speaking from experience, it should be at the top of your list. Right up there with your actual wedding location in fact!

On you wedding day, there is so much emphasis placed on making the couple look fantastic, some fail to factor an epic getting ready location into their plans.  

Sadly, it means you can run into trouble with your wedding photographer and videographer because your choice in venue lets you down. Spending thousands on hiring the perfect team, only to wind up with disappointing, uninspiring results, it’s a terrible feeling.

Don’t let it happen to you!

So, if you’re looking for the perfect place to get ready, we’ve pulled together stunning locations our wedding photographer and videographer team has shot with couples… and the outcome was EPIC!

In no particular order of preference, we’ve listed them below:

W Brisbane – Brisbane City

Have you seen this place? If you have, then no need to ask why we think this is one of the best places to be photographed while getting ready for your wedding. Fancy, funky, opulent and downright FUN! That pretty much sums it up! So many colours, designs and attention to detail in these rooms will make getting ready and photographed a hell of a good time. Located in North Quay right in the heart of Brisbane city, what a spot, what a venue! Take a sneak peek online. Or drop in for a look at North Quay in the city.

The Calile Hotel – The Valley

Now THIS place is unreal! More likely than not, you’ve already seen this joint featured on your Instagram feed. And that’s because it’s unbelievable. Your wedding photographer and videographer will have a right field day filming you around the pool or up in your room (which are just as magic), even out on your balcony. Grab a cocktail poolside, sit back, relax and let your wedding photographer and videographer work their magic. And believe me, they will! This place is divine. And hits the spot when it comes to shooting in an outdoor space. Have a look online. If you’re in Brisbane, drop by, they’re on James Street, Fortitude Valley.

The Inchcolm by Ovolo – City

Stepping through the doors of the Inchcolm is like stepping into a time warp. Steeped in an era of sophistication and cool, there’s an old school elevator, a bar straight out of the Gatsby era, not to mention the rooms! Book this joint as your getting ready spot and your wedding photographer and videographer will go nuts with glee. The end result? It’ll look like something straight out of the movies. With you as the star! Don’t believe us? See for yourself online. The Inchcolm is on Wickham Terrace, Spring Hill.

Emporium Hotels – South Bank

This place is a creatives dream come true! After something a little more classy? With suites decked out in stunning minimalistic designs, eye popping views over the Brisbane river, and stacks of natural light, this will really get your wedding photographer and videographer’s juices flowing. Oh did we mention there’s a rooftop? Located on Grey Street, South Brisbane, check out Emporium Hotels South Bank online and see what you think!

Being one of the best luxury boutique hotels in Brisbane, this is a spot that really hits the mark! It’s your opportunity to look and live like a king or queen, if only for one night! With a bit of a quirky, yet modern feel about its rooms, the eye popping wallpaper makes for a fun and funky backdrop.
