Bronwyn & Robert’s wedding at the Gawler Uniting Church was a beautiful wedding in beautiful surrounds set against beautiful weather on the 21st of January 2015. The day was just beautiful. Did I mention beautiful? With the boys getting ready all the way out in Seppeltsfield, and the girls getting ready in Gawler, then heading back up to Seppeltsfield winery for glamour shots, and finally the reception being in Modbury’s Sferas the trek for both myself and my second photographer who lives south of the city was quite exhausting. Bronwyn and Robert opted to hire me as their wedding photographer for the entire day with an additional photographer present for a couple of hours.
The groomsmen were getting ready in a family owned farm in Seppltsfield, north of Adelaide. The house was a quaint, homey farmhouse surrounded by vineyards and rolling wine-region hills.
Bridal Party Preparation
Bronwyn and her entourage were getting prepared just around the corner from the Gawler Uniting Church, so their journey was not as far as that for the boys. The girls were getting prepared in the house Bronwyn and Robert share. We had a lot of fu re-arranging the furniture to get the best vantage points for photos using a lovely bay window they had and spiral stair case.
Gawler Uniting Church Wedding Ceremony
The Gawler Uniting Church is an imposing piece of architecture, looming over the local supermarket and parklands. It was built in 1869 as a Wesleyan Methodist church in a Gothic style, replacing a church built in 1850 which we also utilised for a few photos. I believe the old church is now used as a charity center. The inside of the Gawler Uniting Church is no less inspiring featuring a very high ceiling and impressive woodwork behind the altar. I’d hazard a guess the maximum capacity of this 2 aisle church would be no less than 300-400 people.
