There’s one particular road in Bowral that has 4+ wedding venues all in a row. One of them is this one. I hope you enjoy this wonderful Hopewood House wedding. Since this wedding I’ve been back to this venue several times, and I’d absolutely love to head back again for some more weddings.
Here’s how this Hopewood House wedding played out
The elegant, beautiful Jane and the dashing, handsome Andrew had not one but two wedding ceremonies. First, at lovely little church in Berrima called St Francis Xavier, and then later in the day, a traditional Korean tea ceremony, with reception to follow, at the incredible Hopewood House in Bowral. This venue is quite incredible; it’s a sprawling estate looks like something straight out of Oxfordshire or the Cotswalds. Perfectly manicured gardens, expertly shaped hedges, wonderful old buildings.
After the ceremony in Berrima, we made our way to the venue for this Hopewood House wedding. We spent the next hour or so walking the grounds, getting lots amongst the acres of amazing photo locations. Jane, Andrew and their friends made me feel very comfortable and welcome, and for this I’m very grateful.
Let me assure you of one thing: you do not truly understand Gangnam Style until you’ve seen it played at a Korean wedding reception 😀
Bowral has lots of wonderful wedding venues and many are just next door to Hopewood, and I’ve been lucky enough to shoot weddings at pretty much all of them. You might enjoy this amazing Gibraltar Hotel wedding which was awesome (including being photobombed by a family of ducks!), and this Peppers Craigieburn wedding was one of my favourites. I also photographed a wonderful Peppers Manor House Sutton Forest wedding which you can see here.
If you’re getting married at Hopewood House, I’d absolutely love to hear from you!
