St Georges College Chapel
St George’s College Chapel is a popular wedding ceremony location in Perth, especially for graduates of the University of Western Australia and students who have boarded at the college.
The imposing college building is an historical landmark in the university precinct and the chapel in the grounds is a beautiful location for a wedding ceremony. The picturesque architecture and manicured gardens make St Georges’s College an attractive photographic backdrop for the wedding photos of couples lucky enough to secure the venue.
Wedding car and limousine access
The impressive entrance drive presents no problems for limousine access, stretch Chryslers and classic wedding cars can all negotiate the drive with ease.
There are two issues associated with wedding transport for couples using the St George’s College Chapel:
1 Parking for guests
There is limited parking in the bays to the western end of the college building which are usually occupied by students. This means that guests may be tempted to park along the main drive which then restricts access for the wedding limousines and can even block the drive from traffic. It may be best to advise guests to park along Park Road at the rear of the college and enter from there. Instruct guests not to park at the entrance to the college, this needs to be reserved for the wedding cars. The drive is essentially one lane and cars on the drive must be prepared to exit the college if a following car needs to leave.
2 Limo access to the main driveway entrance
Access is only possible when traveling east along Mounts Bay Road. If your approach to the college is from the east the limo will need to drive past or around the college and approach from the west. If a wedding has multiple limos they will probably not all be able to remain at the college entrance during the service because others need to use the drive. It may be necessary for the limos to also park in Park Road and be contacted to return when the wedding party are ready to continue.
