The bride and her attendants drive through the wrought iron double gates into the Convent garden and around the sweeping gravel paths to the imposing front vestibule.
The groom and his attendants wait in the glorious Chapel. Guests are seated in the Sisters’ choir stalls on either side, or in the transepts, waiting to see a beautiful procession move down the red carpet in the centre of the tiled nave towards the Italian marble altar in the sanctuary dominated by three magnificent Italian paintings. It is harder to imagine a more perfect setting for a wedding.
For over eighty years young women made their religious vows in this sacred space. The bride's entry down the centre carpet is a moment to treasure. There is a particular intimacy in marrying in this beautiful Chapel as all have an uninterrupted view of the ceremony.
After the ceremony there are endless opportunities for bridal and guest photos. Garden, cloisters, Chapel steps, fernery, the many nooks and pathways will provide you with very special memories. In case of rain the verandahs and cloisters which surround the Convent provide complete shelter.
The Sacred Spaces Wedding Coordinator will ensure that you have all the help you need to prepare to marry in this special place.
