Popular venue for weddings and functions

 

Chapel

Our beautiful colonial chapel is a very popular venue for weddings, naming ceremonies and funerals. The chapel was the old Matamata Methodist Church, built in 1914 on Broadway (Matamata's main street). It was moved here in 1978 and retained its charm and beauty. Set in picturesque gardens, surrounded by local history, this is an ideal venue for any special event. Please note that the chapel is very popular, so bookings are essential. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and make a booking.

Functions and photography

Our stunning gardens and lovely trees also make an ideal outdoor venue for a special occasion. Whether you want a picnic or a function, our grounds are ideal. Bookings are essential. The gardens are also a popular spot for family portraits or wedding photos (even if the wedding isn't being held on site). Bookings are essential. Simply contact us to arrange your function or photo session.
