Christ the King Church
Christ the King Church in Beaconsfield near Fremantle is a popular community church for weddings. The interior is beautifully designed with stained glass windows creating a timeless atmosphere.
The ornate red brick building is well maintained and sitting on the hill top it has a commanding presence.
A small parking bay adjacent to the church will hold around sixteen cars. Parking on Lefroy Street is not recommended, so for a large wedding many guests may have a short walk to the church from Livingstone Street. Advise your guests to leave the end of Edmund Street (near Lefroy St) clear for limo turning if you are booking a stretch limo.
Wedding limousine access
Whilst the elevated position helps the church to stand out, it also provides some access issues. The drive rises steeply off Lefroy Street (which is quite narrow). This is not an issue for traditional sedan based classic wedding cars but means larger limos cannot turn into the church from Lefroy Street when heading west. Limo access needs to be from Edmunds Street directly into the drive or to have the limo reverse into the drive from Edmunds Street. The drive also has changes in gradient which may cause larger low limos to bottom out. When done well Chrysler limousines sit well at the top of the drop-off zone in the car-park.
The major problem for large limos at the venue is turning around to exit the church. This can be done in with some difficulty in the car park but on wedding days the car park usually fills with the guests cars leaving no access for the limo which will then need to reverse across Lefroy Street to leave the church.
Some drivers of Hummer limos and stretch Chryslers who do not know the church may insist on dropping you at the street verge meaning a walk up the steep drive to enter the church.
It is important to ask guests not to park in the driveway or to restrict access to the driveway when they park before entering the church for the wedding ceremony.
