The Living Chapel

This location is nestled within Paradise and features a creatively designed open air iron chapel with vines grown around, overlooking the braided Dart River and mountains beyond.

Paradise Forest Wedding Ceremony


With a wooden arch already in place this intimate forest is a romantic and rustic setting.

This building has been a perfect venue for many wedding ceremony and small receptions.  Situated near the homestead it is also perfect place for you to wait for your helicopter to land on the lawn outside before whisking you both away to the mountains for some evening images.
