Chapel

The stone chapel was built to add character and natural beauty offering an old style country church appeal that is both rustic and elegant. In keeping with the rest of the estate, the chapel features wrought iron chandeliers, balustrades and railway sleeper doors with small arch windows complete the design.

The chapel is ideal for between 60 and 150 guests but can be configured to seat up to 200 people. The chapel and red carpet are included in the venue hire.

Garden Ceremonies

Many people dream of getting married in the tranquility of nature, under big trees and blue skies. The gardens at Trés Jolie are perfect for an outdoor ceremony; an outdoor chapel nestles in between flowerbeds with a red carpet and a canopy draped with meters of white chiffon creating a nostalgic and elegant picture.

There is no additional cost should you opt for a garden chapel and our indoor chapel is always available in case of inclement weather.
