New page: Serendipity Photography review St Ignatius (spoiler: we love it!)

At Serendipity Photography we love St Ignatius’ spacious hall and the way the afternoon light falls through the stained glass windows. Melbourne is home to some of Australia’s grandest churches and it’s always a pleasure for us to work in these amazing locations.

St Ignatius, a Richmond landmark, is a dream for wedding photographers. Its majestic exterior of basalt and white Sydney stone is inspiring and makes for a beautiful location for a shoot.

The church was constructed in a French Gothic Revival style, which is notable for its rich and intricate exterior stone masonry, which means gorgeous light and shadow throughout the year, in any weather.

Construction began on the church in 1867, from the designs of WW Wardell, and was not completed until 1928. You can really feel the passion that went into the design and the construction of St Ignatius, which sits on Richmond Hill overlooking Church Street.

For Melbourne wedding photography it’s hard to imagine a more romantic and iconic setting than St Ignatius.

If you’re considering St Ignatius, or just still curious don’t forget to check out St Ignatius’ website.
