After Bronwyn & Robert’s wedding ceremony at the Gawler Uniting Church we head off to take some glamour photographs in a variety of locations, including the Gawler gardens around the church, and Seppeltsfield Winery up in Seppeltsfield. We also stopped off in various locations around Seppeltsfield as it’s set in such a beautiful location, surrounded by the Barossa Valley with fantastic palm trees and vineyards.

Seppeltsfield Winery Wedding Photos
Seppeltsfield winery boasts a beautifully manicured central garden surrounded by old rustic buildings with wild, luck green forestry nearby and of course the Seppeltsfield winery vineyards. It;s pretty much the perfect location of a wedding photographer such as myself. The Seppeltsfield winery was originally build in 1888 as a Gravity Flow Winery. Established in 1888, the historic building was designed and constructed by Oscar Benno Seppelt, son of Seppeltsfield founders Joseph & Johanna. Built into the hillside on a series of terraces, the visionary winery was the largest and most modern of its type in the world during the late 19th century.
For almost 100 years, the 1888 Gravity Flow cellar served as Seppeltsfield’s chief winemaking facility. Having played an important role in shaping the foundation of Australia’s wine landscape, it was eventually decommissioned in the 1980’s due to the need for significant restoration. The cellar lay dormant for nearly 30 years until it was revived under Warren Randall with the change of Seppeltsfield’s ownership in 2007. A million-dollar investment restored the seppeltsfield winery to a world-class facility for vintage 2010.
