The Charlotte Chapel’s fame and huge number of devotees often has Kantara House asking “what about moi?”. The jewel in Kantara House’s crown, the Charlotte Chapel is definitely the Most Beautiful Wedding Chapel ever. Its enormous gothic-inspired doors are the perfect frame for every beautiful couple and we guarantee tears from your partner upon your arrival.
Searching for your something old? We’ve also got that covered – the Charlotte Chapel is home to Australia’s oldest ringing bell that comes with its very own bell ringer. Cast in 1550 in Somerset in the United Kingdom, we lovingly transported all 260kg of the bell to her final resting place in the Charlotte Chapel. If you can drag yourself away from the bell, it’s a fact that beauty is on the inside and this could not be more true about our chapel You’ll fall in love with its bevelled glass windows and gorgeous hanging chandeliers quicker than you can imagine!
If the Charlotte Chapel isn’t your thing and you’re more wild and free, our outdoor ceremony options have all the feels. Set on 4.5 acres of natural rainforest, the sky (rainforest canopy?) is the limit for outdoor ceremonies, including our formal outdoor rotunda. And in case of inclement weather, our Green Chapel has your back. Covered by a ginormous waterproof sail, the Green Chapel provides you with wet weather protection without feeling like you’re indoors and, MOST importantly, it’s located next to our outdoor bar. Convenient. One last thing on our outdoor ceremonies – we hate being stingy and for this reason, we have thousands of pretty outdoor chairs for your ceremony. Ok, not thousands, but a lot
Let’s be honest, what do your guests realllly want to do when they attend a wedding (other than see you married!)? Eat, drink and dance the night away! After the ceremony, your guests can wander over to our waterproof outdoor sail area, where our waitstaff will accost them with a sumptuous array of canapes handmade on site by our Executive Chef. With a canape in one hand, your guests can visit our fully staffed outdoor bar to delight in our handpicked wines or draught beers. The best bit about the canape area? Too hard to choose! But, we would have to say, the fairylight canopy under the sail is fairly magical and a spectacular backdrop for your sparkler tunnel exit (which, by the way, we throw in)
We promised you a Wedding World, no? Our indoor function space delivers just that! The room includes practically everything you will need to bring the vision of your Big Day to life. We provide a choice of round or long tables, all fully kitted out with cutlery, crockery, glassware and linen. Oh, and did we mention the majestic white Tiffany chairs we have (that don’t need covering BTW) for your guests to relax in? With timber flooring and gorgeous French doors leading out to the veranda (where our Picture Perfect cane furniture awaits), the room looks just as good in Real Life as it does in Wedding Pictures. We are there to set-up and pack-down the room for you to ensure your Big Day is as seamless as possible*. Couples often ask us if all of this is included in our pricing? Ummm, yes
(*please contact Kantara House for clarification of what is and what is not included in the set-up and pack-down. For example, styling is not included)
