Girl marries in church built by her great grandfather

St Mary’s Anglican Church in 1958.

Weddings in the historic cliff-top St Mary’s Anglican Church at Kangaroo Point are always special. However, the wedding of Vilma Fay Grant to Dr Robert Scott must stand out as being extra special and memorable.

On Saturday, 16 December 1950, Vilma Fay Grant, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. V. Grant of Kangaroo Point, celebrated her wedding in the church built by her great great grandfather, Mr. Alfred Grant.

In 1871, Mr. Alfred Grant commenced the building of the church, which was completed and consecrated in 1873. (see more about St Mary’s in the Churches page)
