Chapel by the Lake
by Candle Light
Magical Romance at its Best!
Walk into the Chapel as the sun sets outside, inside the Chapel you are surrounded by Candelabras; the flicker of the candles set the perfect ambience for a very romantic wedding.
This wedding package is quite unique as you will start off having your photos taken in and around Queenstown, once the sun is close to setting you will come back to the Chapel grounds to exchange your vows. By this stage you will be very relaxed. Directly, afterwards we can organize your romantic dinner in your private luxury cottage. This just oozes serenity.

Time of the year to marry
I personally love this wedding package in the winter, there is the possibility of snow on the ground and the sun will set early around 5-6pm at night, which follows on for the perfect time for your romantic dinner.
I saying this I have created weddings here for the summer and held the ceremony at 9pm so it comes down to how you can see yourselves marrying here. It does offer you the flexibility.
Hire of the Chapel
We will hold exclusive rights to this area for up to 2 ½ hrs. This will allow us to utilize the grounds prior to your wedding for photos.
Your wedding is based on Monday – Thursday. By utilizing these days I am able to pass on the cheaper rates and you are not required to hire the reception area at Stoneridge Estate.
The Chapel is of no denomination which means it holds no specific religion or has a practicing parish. You are most welcome to have a minister or celebrant conduct your wedding.
In the package I have organized a celebrant to conduct your wedding. I find most couples are keen to create a personal ceremony which has significant meaning to both of them. Your celebrant will also be more than happy to add any religious content that you would like. However if you would prefer a minister just let me know as this is no problems to alter.
The Chapel will comfortably seat 60-70 guests.
Please note this wedding package is based on just the Bride & Groom attending the wedding
