The Anglican Parish of Hunters Hill has two remarkable and historic sandstone churches in which to celebrate your marriage in the leafy suburb of Hunters Hill.
St Mark’s - 1861 (Figtree Rd, Hunters Hill)
This sandstone Church, originally the school and chapel house, is the oldest public building in Hunters Hill. It was moved, stone by stone, in 1961 from its original location on Figtree Hill to Figtree Rd. Some have described it as a “chocolate box” Church, with its compact features and details reminding them of the ornate decorations of old chocolate boxes.
As you walk down the red carpet aisle and look around you will see stained glass, timber ceilings and beautiful timber pews and fixtures. It is certainly a gem of a church.
All Saints' - 1878 (Cnr Ferry & Ambrose Street's, Hunters Hill)
All Saints' is one of Sydney's truly beautiful churches. As you drive up to the front door through the parkland gardens you will be greeted by a stunning sandstone building of gothic design.
As you enter through the large deep red timber doors you will walk down a wide and long aisle on red carpet. If you look up you will see a spectacular timber roof, and some of the most wonderful stained glass in all of Sydney.
As you reach the sanctuary steps you will walk across decorative tiles and be standing before a simple altar where you will sign the register. On the left is the historic Bevington Pipe organ.
As you leave All Saints', the church bell will ring out to announce your marriage.
The Anglican Parish of Hunters Hill clergy provide a truly wonderful service with the best of tradition, while allowing for informality and special touches within the service to reflect your style and personality. The Parish also provides many extras, such as fresh flowers and pew bows, that ensure your wedding marks the beginning of a great marriage.
