The finer details:
VENUE: Ashley Community Church
The Ashley Community Church is a Category 2 Historic Building and began life as the Anglican Church of St Simon and St Jude. When it was sold for demolition in the early 1970s, locals with strong ties to the building and its heritage, salvaged it for interdenominational use by the wider community. An Incorporated Society now manages bookings, maintenance, and restoration work. The church celebrated 150 years in 2021.
PHOTOGRAPHER: A Wedding White Pages photographer
You have two options to choose from:
- 60 minutes of photos (this option comes with the package)
- 90 minutes of photos (choose this option from $150 more)
The time for each photography option starts at the ceremony.
You will receive a gallery of images four weeks after your wedding, with a ‘sneak peek’ of five images within two business days.
CELEBRANT: Anna Flanagan, Beth Dunn, or Jane Godfrey
These celebrants love micro weddings! There’s something so special about inviting your closest friends and family to celebrate your love with you. We do the legal bit first, with a beautiful personalised ceremony, where you can share your own vows (which your celebrant can help with) – then you can get into the celebration straight afterwards! (The price of the celebrant doesn’t include your marriage licence fee of $150)
You will receive a taller style 6-inch cake. Flavour choices: signature chocolate; vanilla; lemon; or white chocolate mud.
Twisted Flour offers free collection Monday to Saturday, or a delivery fee of $20.
