Wedding Ceremony Venues – Churches
When arranging church weddings in Perth couples often consider four factors to ensure the church meets their needs:
- Location – identify the churches of your denomination in the proximity of other venues you are considering. The less time you spend driving the more time you are enjoying your wedding day.
- Seating and Parking – estimate the likely number of guest who will attend your ceremony to ensure the church will cater for your needs. A large number of guests who cannot be accommodated inside the church at a wedding will lead to delays, congestion and frustration. A large church that appears ’empty’ if you are expecting a small number of guests may not seem right either. It is also wise to consider the parking available and to warn your guests if limited parking nearby may mean they have a 5 – 10 minute walk to the church. If late guests continue to trickle in during the service it could lead to frequent disruptions. Also asses the limousine access if you intend to use stretch limos. Many churches can not accommodate the larger limos and you may need to be dropped off at the street entrance.
- Atmosphere and surroundings – a large portion of the wedding day photography is inside the church during the ceremony and outside the church with family directly after the ceremony. It is best to consider all aspects of the location.
- Timing – many churches now hold two or three weddings in an afternoon and have subsequently developed firm guidelines regarding wedding organisation at the venue. It is worth checking what time frame is available to you before you book the venue. Some Perth churches offer as little as one hour from arrival to departure.
