Alison and Matthew’s St Ignatius Catholic Church Wedding in Norwood took place on a day which weather diddn’t really know what was going on – we managed to avoid the rain though so huge success there!
Their day was full of fun, romance and family and friends there to watch this lovely couple get married!
Matthew and his groomsmen got prepared in a nice house overlooking the beach near Hallett Cove. The house featured high ceilings with very minimal wall coverings which made for a delightful spot for groom preparation,m especially since their shirt and suit choices suited the house nicely.
Matthew was running a little late in the morning, after having running about with some last minute details, but we still managed to get some shots of the boys helping him get ready ad walk down to the cliff side for some shots with the water in the background.
Alison was being prepared with her bridal party and family at a bed and breakfast in Mile End. It was a delightful little cottage-style house with a beautiful hallway which I used to good effect!
After the bridal party had finished fussing about with Alison’s dress, we did a quick ‘first look’ with Alison’s family when whisked away quickly to the church in Norwood.
St Ignatius Catholic Church Wedding Ceremony
A St Ignatius Catholic Church wedding is something to behold! The church, nestled away in the backstreets of Norwood boasts an impressive front door, and a three-pronged interior which allows for some pretty impressive wide shots from the upper level.
Alison arrived in her white car motorcade, and was escorted down the long aisle by her father. A fun thing about Alison and Matthew’s bridal entrance was that the groomsmen walked down the aisle halfway to meet the bridesmaids as they entered – which I thought was nice.
Another delightful little piece of family history was that this was the 4th St Ignatius Catholic Church wedding in Alison’s family going back generations!
Unfortunately the Catholic church ceremony took a little longer than Alison and Matthew had expected, so we had to rush through the family photos a bit out the front of the church before heading out for glamour photos.
We had to make a quick stop at the Torrens Arms Hotel in Kingwood in order to have a quick champagne as this was where Alison and Mtthew had first met and celebrate their anniversary at each year, and then the original plan was to head to the Himeji Gardens first, and then Veale Gardens for glamour photos, but as time was getting away from us we simply head straight to Veale Gardens.
Next Gen Wedding Reception
Alison and Matthew’s wedding reception took place right next to the Adelaide Oval in the Next Gen Health and Lifestyle clubs, where they also have a delightful function room overlooking the Torrens river.
That night there was also a sporting event on next door, and the Oz Asia festival set up on the grass out front, so it all felt very exclusive having the whole road blocked off for what seemed like the guests of this very exclusive wedding reception!
Alisona dn Matthew had my photobooth set up and running all night, and heartfelt speeches flowed beautifully. The whole night was very wholesome and delightful to be a part of!
Thanks so much to Alison and matthew for having me cover your St Ignatius Catholic Church wedding! Was a delight to be a part of your big day!
