Treasury Gardens Wedding Photo Locations
Best Wedding Photo Location Melbourne Treasury Gardens
The small and peaceful Treasury Gardens form part of the network of city gardens which include Fitzroy Gardens, Carlton Gardens, and Kings Domain. Nestled right on the edge of Melbourne’s CBD between Spring street and Treasury Place, this picturesque garden was developed in the 1860’s to complement the Victorian Parliamentary buildings to the north.
Today the gardens provide a peaceful respite from the fast paced city streets. Treasury Gardens is a great location for formals and family shots when the wedding photography schedule is concentrated around the Old Treasury buildings, Parliament House, Gordon Reserve and or the Hotel Windsor.
Treasury Gardens is heritage listed and offers many romantic possibilities, with an abundance of native trees, 19th century path design and a distinctive ornamental pond. The landscaped gardens boast large areas of lush lawn, and mature tree species including Moreton Bay Figs and River Red Gums. The abundant variations of greens are perfect for close up photos during the day, the leafy foliage of the grand trees filter soft dappled light, giving the ceremony and captured scenes a highly romantic feel.
Treasury Gardens also features some stunning sculptures and monuments including the Robert Burns memorial, a monument to President John F. Kennedy and a memorial statue of Sir William Clarke. Serendipity recommend the Treasury Gardens as a wonderfully picturesque option either for an outdoor ceremony (perfect during the Summer and Autumn months) or as a convenient alfresco location between other romantic city venues such as Parliament House, the Windsor Hotel and Collins Street.

The elegantly proportioned rectangular building presents three main entrances, a central portico derived from the “Italian palazzo” form with an upper story colonnaded arcade, and beautiful elaborate window pilasters and pediments.The building was finished in the subtle creamy sandstone so beloved by architects during the period, and maintains the elegant and refined feel of high Victorian architecture.
