Chapel Story

 
Past Present Future

PAST

Once upon a time a gallant knight rode his trusty steed on a quest to find his true love.

Upon finding his princess they travelled together to beautiful Montville Village, on the Sunshine Coast, where the knight proposed marriage. Lucky for the princess she wasn't chilling out with seven dwarfs, or locked away in a tower plaiting her hair, nor was she held captive by a dragon.

PRESENT

With the acceptance of his proposal, the knight whisked his princess away, embarking on a mission to find the perfect place to marry his one true love.

They travelled along Kondalilla Falls Road where to their delight they came upon an enchanting wedding chapel, 'Chapel of Angels, which captivated them with its exquisite leadlight windows, crystal chandeliers, landscaped gardens and wedding planning office. This was just what they had dreamt of.

FUTURE

.... And the rest was history

Chapel Features

Hence Forth

When you visit us at the Chapel of Angels you can expect to be captivated by the chapel’s enchanting beauty. The chapel is non-denominational and sits beautifully amongst landscaped gardens. Both have been designed to capture the essence of romance. There are numerous photo opportunities in both the chapel and the gardens. The ambience of the chapel has been created with leadlight windows designed by a leadlight artisan whose passion for leadlight is shown in his work. The interior décor for both the chapel and the wedding planning studio is best described as opulent. Chapel of Angels comfortably seats 80 guests and our pews date back to 1930 where they were originally hand made for the Uniting Church in Hughesdale Victoria. Some things just need to be from the past.

We understand that not only your wedding day is important, but also the lead up to it, therefore we have established an area where you can manage your wedding planning needs in comfort and in style. You will love the Chapel of Angels so much that you can check out any time you like, but you won’t ever want to leave.
