St Patricks Basilica
In the heart of Fremantle resides the historically listed and awe-inspiring St Patrick’s Basilica. Since 1894, St Patrick’s Basilica has been the sanctuary for Fremantle and Perth’s Catholic community. Being such a breathtaking venue, they’ve been generous to open their doors to all Catholics who wish to engage in mass, baptisms and of course – weddings.
The Roman Catholic church is unique, significant and monumental – harmonising poetically with the meanings of marriage itself. Walking through the building you’re instantly delighted with the gothic revival style interior, encompassing clerestory, spacious apse and traditional church architecture. Although the church’s foundation stone was laid all the way back in 1898, the entire building has been well kept and preserved. It’s an incredibly special and meaningful location to be immersed in, let alone host your wedding!
Above the altar where your wedding ceremony will be held, the iconic tapestry hangs providing a beautiful backdrop to your wedding photos. This stunning and colourful piece was handmade in Galway, Ireland in the early 90s and stretches across around 50 square meters. Blues, purples, reds and yellows – the tapestry looks opulent and magnificent. Tying in nicely with the warm yellow lights, your wedding ceremony will be aesthetically enriched and impressive for your wedding guests. An ideal wedding venue for Catholic couples.
