From Megan Aldridge Photography… Megan Aldridge Photography is a beautiful boutique wedding studio in Ferntree Gully, Outer Eastern Melbourne, we photograph weddings all over Melbourne & Australia.
Choosing your photographer wisely could be one of the most important decisions you make about your wedding. You need someone who cares, and is qualified. Someone who cares so deeply that they regularly prick their fingers on buttonhole pins and will throw their jacket down so you don’t get your dress dirty. Someone who watches for just the right moment to catch Mum wiping away a tear as you’re getting dressed. Someone ready to catch you cracking up laughing at the best man’s dodgy jokes and the flower girl photo bomber!
Megan is one of those people who is completely there for you. Every cheeky wink, every secret glance, is caught with a quiet ‘click’, and it’s in your story forever – she understands how important this job is.
Megan is a fully qualified Master Photographer (AIPP) with over 13 years of experience and will make sure that all the pieces of your wedding day puzzle are polished up and put together into a perfect collection of stunning images, ready to share with your friends & family.
As a Special Offer to SMP brides, Megan Aldridge Photography is offering 50 free thank you cards! (Value $125.00) Just mention this post when contacting Megan!

What some of our happy couples had to say about their gift registry with Wedding Gifts Direct:
“Wedding Gifts Direct took us through our Bridal Registry and made it a fun, easy and quick process. We heard that organising your Bridal Registry would be challenging but our experience at Wedding Gifts Direct has been one of the best parts of organising our Wedding. We felt naughty picking out so many beautiful things” – Ada & Chrys
“Wedding gifts direct was the perfect choice for the registry for more than one reason. It was a more personal experience than going into a big chain store and not getting more one on one service. It was easy for the overseas guests to purchase presents. It was great being able to review gifts before they were sent so that we could make sure we had not already received certain gifts. Otherwise we would have had to spend the time returning any items we already had or did not want anymore!” - Courtney & Adam
We have fantastic monthly offers where qualifying couples receive wonderful free gifts after registering with us!
And if that is not enough, we also have a wonderful $25,000 honeymoon competition running – not only do you get fabulous service, a combination registry and free gifts, our couples also get to enter our $25,000 honeymoon competition when you register with us!
