Chapel by the Lake

At Stoneridge Estate, our romantic stone wedding chapel is an idyllic location for your traditional New Zealand wedding ceremony. Enter the Chapel by the Lake and experience a sense of sublime tranquility; feel the calm settle around you on the old Church pews and the hand-crafted altar, as rays of sun stream through the spectacular chancel window and bathe the aisle in light.

Built in 2001 from reclaimed church beams, stone and slate, the Chapel by the Lake is the original vision of artist Da'Vella Gore, and has been a breathtakingly beautiful destination wedding location for countless couples since then. The Chapel's authentic character harmonises perfectly with the alpine grandeur and stunning scenery that surrounds it, and its intimate feel makes it an idyllic location for a small ceremony or romantic elopement. 

Our dedicated wedding coordinator can arrange everything that you desire for your Chapel ceremony; whether you'd like a videographer to capture your vows or a live musician to play 'your song' as you walk down the aisle. speak to us about planning your New Zealand Chapel wedding today.
