This business paid a fee to be listed on Offbeat Bride because they feel their products and services are a great fit with offbeat philosophies… and we agree. Learn more about our ads.


Yay for Australian sponsors! Melbourne brides, meet Lakshal Perera, aka Lucky, aka your perfect wedding photographer. For the last three years Lakshal has been based out of Brisbane, but now he wants to celebrate moving to Melbourne with an offer for all couples. And if YOU are lucky you may be one of the five couples to get our Lucky to shoot your wedding for only $500.

Oh yes, we like to hook our Aussie brides up. But first, I want to give you a reminder of where you've seen his work before…

Y'all might remember Lakshal from when we profiled this rockabilly wedding in Wollongong that featured both temporary and real tattoos and a fun portrait session in a thrift store that involved shark jaws. Since then, we've been smitten with Lucky.

Having recently gotten married in an offbeat ceremony himself, Lakshal totally knows what it's like to face the vendor rat race as an offbeat couple. That's probably why he's got such a great outlook on his business and weddings in general.

Here's what he has to say about his business and photography style:


My business is pretty simple, to be honest. I am laid back, relaxed and pretty much invisible on peoples' wedding day. I always know that the day isn't about me and I should be the least of the bride and groom's concerns!

I like to think of my work as fine art wedding photography! Yes, a bit pretentious perhaps but I love the idea that people will use their wedding photos as art around their house. 🙂

And you just might be one of the ones who gets to hang that very art up in your house with LUCKY'S LUCKY OFFBEAT OFFER:

  • Here's what you get: Lakshal is offering to do five weddings for $500 (which is 81% off his normal price).
  • Who can enter: He would prefer them to be based in or around Melbourne, however International clients are welcome to participate in the offer. (Although travel is NOT included in the $500.)
  • How to enter: To be considered to be one of the five lucky clients, just contact Lakshal and tell him your wedding date, location, and explain how your wedding represents your relationship. He'll choose which couples will get hooked up based on the combination of your email entries and his schedule. So anyone has a chance as only as he's choosing three international/not in Melbourne weddings!
  • Contest ends April 12, 2012.

So what are you waiting for!? Get your email writing fingers ready and try and get Lucky!

Comments on 5 lucky couples to get wedding photography from Melbourne’s Lakshal Perera for only $500!

  1. Omg, what an awesome offer! These shots and the ones at his site are stunning. I am definitely stretching out my email-writing fingers.

    I do have one question — would that $500 cover international travel? I’ll be getting married in the US, and a $500 package isn’t as great a deal if there are travel costs as well.

    • Clarified in the post that travel is NOT included. Any additional questions about the promotion should be addressed with Lucky directly: http://www.lakshalperera.com

      We’re not running the contest — just promoting it!

    • Hi Allison!

      As Ariel said, the travel costs are unfortunately not included. My travel fees are simply the actual costs, there’s nothing extra charged on top. Depending on where you are and what your budget is, some affordable flights can be found. 🙂
      Send me an email if you’re still interested or have any more questions!

      Thanks!
      Lucky

  2. Ohmygod, I wish I was getting married right now so I could hire him! Those photos. are. ahhhmazing.

  3. AMAZING!
    I just emailed him – yes to hooking up the Ozzie Brides!!!!

    xxxx

    Fingers crossed!

  4. I am so excited about this!!!
    What and awesome deal
    Fingers and toes 🙂

  5. It would be ace if this was also for engagement shoots 🙁 Damn! Good luck to all those lucky to be brides who are entering!

    • Hi Pippet!
      Believe it or not, I am actually offering engagement shoots for free (again excluding travel). Give me a yell if you are interested. 🙂

  6. Oh man! Can’t participate as we’re in Perth and have sorted our photographer, but I just wanted to send a little message of “yay!” and support because I love the feeling that us antipodeans are included in this community, and I’m so stoked to see fantastic offbeat Aussies being represented so regularly.

    I will definitely remember to recommend you to my Melbournian friends, and thanks, Ariel for being so inclusive of us far-away Aussies.

    • Again to clarify, we’re not running the contest — just promoting it. All questions should be directed to Lucky himself!

      • We totally enoyejd our e-session, although we originally hadn’t planned on it. It was helpful to become more comfortable in front of the camera before the wedding! Beau gives great suggestions for better pictures. Also Jen from Picture Perfect Makeup was really talented and I think it shows in the pictures!!

    • Hi Love Belle

      I want to give people as much of an opportunity as possible to apply and I figured that 2 weeks would be a fair time from when the promo went live to when I’d make the decision! Sorry I didn’t mention that earlier. 🙂

      That means you’ve got about 8 days to contact me if you’re keen! 🙂

  7. Thank you all for your amazing support and I’ve been overwhelmed with amazing entries! So much so, I’ve decided that the special offer applications are now closed!

    Thank you again and I’m literally going through the applications right now and will contact everyone by the end of next week!

    It’s great to see so many cool creative weddings coming into my inbox, you’re a bunch of creative types aren’t you? 🙂

    ps. Ariel and Megan, you guys are rad! 🙂
