Holy Spirit Catholic Church, New Farm

The Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Villiers Street, New Farm holds many special wedding day memories for me. Over the years, I’ve photographed many couples wedding ceremonies at this iconic church in New Farm.

I’m usually one of the first to arrive to meet and photograph the groom and groomsmen. There is a definite air of excitement as guests arrive, greet the groom and await the bride.

Holy Spirit Catholic Church is wonderful for wedding photography. It has the right blend of atmosphere and light, it’s usually breezy for guests as well. Tip-toeing up the stairs to the balcony reveals a magnificent aerial photo opportunity during the wedding ceremony. There’s usually even light on the steps for candid photos as guests congratulate the bride and groom, the stairs are custom made for a big group photo too!

The grounds on the Brunswick Street side of the church typically has gorgeous afternoon light for family group photographs, we always capture these, mums love them!

Some of my favourite Brisbane wedding photography locations are in New Farm and Fortitude Valley so a wedding at Holy Spirit Catholic Church makes thease easy to get to on the way to the wedding reception.
