Not all chapels are created equal – create the perfect indoor ceremony with one of the most stunning Wedding Chapels Melbourne.

We all know that our beautiful city can put on quite a weather show at times. Planning a wedding for all seasons means securing wedding chapels in Melbourne to share lifelong vows.

What should you look for when touring Melbourne wedding chapels, and how do you choose? At Ballara Receptions, we’ve got the lowdown for you.

Wedding Chapels Melbourne

Chapel size

It’s no secret that chapels can get pretty crowded, especially if you have a medium to large guest list. Seating capacity is important, as is standing room, but it is also important to have room for people to move around. Choosing a wedding chapel that is roomy also means that it is less likely to get stuffy inside, especially on warm or rainy days.

Ballara’s gorgeous chapel has pew seating for 100 guests, with room for an additional 60 standing guests. The chapel interior is also spacious, making it comfortable for everyone.

Ideal style

We believe that the ultimate wedding chapel is a wonderful canvas with a touch of unique charm. You should be able to personalise the space with décor that ties in with your wedding theme, while at the same time letting the chapel buzz with its own “something special”. Add aisle decorations, floral arrangements, a welcome board, and a red or white carpet.

Wedding packages at Ballara are customised and can include the little details to save you the time and effort of arranging these yourself. When you choose our all-inclusive wedding package, you receive: a red carpet entrance to the chapel; pew bows and flowers; four large floral arrangements on pillars; and a floral installation as a ceremony backdrop as everyone witnesses your “I Do’s”.

We also have easels for you to display your welcome sign, while your function manager can hand out program booklets and bubbles or petals for group photos at the end.

As for character, our lovely chapel is rich with it! Rustic timber beams add warmth, with our brilliant chandeliers adding that touch of elegance that every bride is seeking.

Dry Ice

All the conveniences

Let’s not forget all the practical stuff! Your Ballara chapel ceremony includes air conditioning and heating – again great for Melbourne’s whimsical weather patterns – as well as sound system and microphone. Your function manager will also greet all of your guests on arrival and handle all the music for your ceremony.

Wedding Chapel Melbourne

One location

If you choose a chapel or church wedding, quite often you will need to move to a different location for the reception. Keeping everything handy in one location is a dream for guests, as they can relax and enjoy the wedding from the very first moment right through till closing time.

A chapel ceremony at Ballara Receptions still gives you full access to the picturesque grounds for photos, and your all-inclusive package can look after your family and friends while you are doing the rounds of the estate with your photographer.

Having everything at one location also means that all weather is catered for. If you are keen to have a garden ceremony, but weather turns wet and windy on the day, the scenic views from the chapel windows still allows guests to appreciate views of the gazebo, lake, and lush, green lawns.

Choosing wedding chapels for Melbourne weddings means that couples have one less thing to worry about on the day. To book a tour of Ballara and find out everything the venue has to offer, contact our friendly team.
