Allegro Kenthurst Wedding: Nadia and Steve

Published: Jul 24, 2022

Sydney’s northwest features spectacular landscapes of rolling hills with large estates. Drive along some of the winding local roads to see grand ‘homestead-like’ dwellings wrapped in elegant post-and-rail fencing; similar to working farms from further west. Allegro Function Centre is just outside of Dural, amongst these properties, and this is where Nadia and Steve held their Allegro Kenthurst wedding.

 

Weddings at Allegro Function Centre

 

Allegro Kenthurst Function Centre is a lovely Mediterranean-style villa set amongst towering gum trees in the valley of Ohara’s Creek in Sydney’s northwest Hills District. The Venus is 35 minutes from Sydney – so not too far for guests to travel, but far enough out of the city to feel as though you are further from home.

Allegro weddings have the option to hold their ceremony on the grounds, which is what Nadia and Steve planned. Allegro has a low-set terraced area with a white gazebo for document signing, and there is plenty of room for seated and standing guests.

And once you are happily married, there is a ton of room to get some creative portraits both on the grounds, and beyond – more about that below.

Allegro is a family-run business. Glenn, the owner, coordinates Allegro Kenthurst weddings and events with their awesome team. But Glenn is also the MC who does a great job running the evening. Nadia and Steve’s wedding ran super smooth – probably one of the smoothest weddings I’ve photographed in recent years. Guests enjoyed pre-dinner drinks on the large balcony overlooking Ohara’s Creek, keeping warm in winter by open fire pits and outdoor heaters (and the balcony makes a great backup wet weather ceremony location too!). The menu is good and the dance floor goes off at night!

 

Allegro Kenthurst Wedding Photos

 

After Nadia and Steve’s Allegro Kenthurst wedding ceremony on the outdoor terrace, we captured some family photographs. The light was genuinely beautiful on this particular afternoon and the ceremony timing was perfect – we timed it just right to capitalise on sunset for portraits.

We captured some bridal party frames at the swing next to the terrace and cracked open the champagne, before setting out around the grounds. We set off up the driveway, and across the road. We found an empty estate with some long grass that looked attractive. It looked like no one had lived at the property for ages so we captured a few images in the grass at the front gate before returning to Allegro.

Once back at Allegro, we shot some portraits under the fairy lights, and also out the back of the venue in front of the timber store. Down the end of the long driveway, some super tall bamboo hedges called for a few images, before Nadia and Steve joined their guests at the reception. During the night, we had a little time for a night shoot outside under the lights, and also captured some frames inside the lady’s bathroom (yes we made sure it was vacant first!) – check out some of the images below with Nadia and Steve in front of a triangular window.
