Wendy and Steve’s wedding ceremony took place in the Brougham Place Uniting Church in North Adelaide. However, Wendy and Steve’s wedding was not conducted in the usual order in which bride and groom met each other for the first time on the day at their Church, but rather have been visiting Himeji and Veale Gardens beforehand for glamour photos after having participated in Chinese traditional customs at their house. To take a look at Wendy and Steve’s glamour photos taken before their Brougham Place Uniting Church Wedding ceremony, you can view them here.
Brougham Place Uniting Church Wedding Ceremony
The Brougham Place Uniting Church has been standing on the ‘hill’ of North Adelaide for more than 150 years. The church was founded, as a ‘Congregational’ Church, on the 20th of October, 1859. It’s distinctive shape, coupled with the church’s famed stained glass windows has earned the Brougham Place Uniting Church “Light on the Hill.” both playing on the fact that it looks somewhat like a lighthouse, with a lot of colourful glass, while also being a house of god the ‘light of the world’.
North Adelaide Glamour Photos
Directly after their Brougham Place Uniting Church ceremony, Wendy and Steve opted to walk about on the lawn directly opposite the church as a bit of an opportunity for more glamour photos. We had spent the better part of the day taking glamour photos beforehand but we needed more for their videographer who was only on site for their ceremony. We also made a stop at Adelaide University on the way to Wendy and Steve’s reception venue, The Ballroom and Kozak Bar.
The Ballroom & Kozak Bar reception
Wendy and Steve’s reception at the The Ballroom & Kozak Bar was possibly the best wedding reception I had been to. Having Chinese families, the The Ballroom & Kozak Bar staff made available an astonishing Chinese-styled banquet menu, with upwards of 8 meals including but not limited to half a lobster each! It was exquisite. The Ballroom itself is wonderfully modern and airy, exhibiting a blend of contemporary and stylish design, showcasing 20’ high ceilings, 2 stunning crystal chandeliers, a room full of down lights and wall lights, along with a display of large wall mirrors and charming jarrah flooring.
I’d like to thank Wendy and Steve for having me as their wedding photographer for their amazing wedding. Both myself and my second photographer had a ball of a time and hope you enjoy your photos as much as we enjoyed taking them!
