Why Choose Kooroomba Lavender Farm

Imagine standing hand in hand, surrounded by a sea of purple and the soft fragrance of lavender filling the air – this could be the stunning reality of your wedding day. The farm not only offers vibrant lavender fields but also panoramic views of the Scenic Rim mountains, providing a range of photo opportunities from lush greenery to dramatic mountain backdrops.

The charm of this venue isn’t just in its beauty but also in the unique ambiance it offers. A wedding here is infused with the natural elegance and tranquillity of the countryside, making it an idyllic setting for those who cherish nature and want a serene yet picturesque location for their special day. There are endless opportunities to capture your special candid moments.

The Magic of Lavender Fields in Your Wedding Photos & Film

There’s something truly magical about the way lavender fields capture the essence of romance and enchantment. The purple haze of the fields brings a vibrant splash of colour to your wedding photos, creating a whimsical and dreamy backdrop that complements any couple’s style.

We’ve had the pleasure of photographing many couples at the Kooroomba Lavender Farm, and each photo tells its own story of love and joy. Whether it’s a stolen kiss among the lavender or a grand, sweeping view of your wedding party, the lavender fields add that extra touch of magic to every shot.

Best Times for Photo Sessions at Kooroomba

Timing is everything when it comes to capturing the perfect wedding photos. At Kooroomba Lavender Farm, the lavender typically blooms from late August to early February, offering a long season of vibrant hues. For the best lighting, we recommend scheduling your photo sessions in the early morning or late afternoon. These times provide soft, diffused light that enhances the natural colours of the lavender and gives a gentle, romantic quality to your photos.

Additionally, consider the time of year and day when planning your wedding. A late afternoon ceremony leading into a sunset photo session can capture stunning images as the light changes from golden hour to dusk.

Expert Lighting Tips for Capturing the Purple Haze

Lighting can make or break a photograph, especially in a setting as picturesque as the Kooroomba Lavender Farm. Here are a few tips we’ve mastered over the years:

  • Utilise the Golden Hour: The hour after sunrise and before sunset offers the most flattering natural light for photos, producing soft, warm hues that complement the purple of the lavender.
  • Avoid Harsh Midday Light: Try to avoid planning photo sessions around noon when the sun is at its highest. The strong overhead light can cause harsh shadows and overly bright spots.
  • Use Reflectors: We often use reflectors to manage natural light effectively, especially under trees or beside taller lavender plants where shadows can be more pronounced.
