About This Venue

Located in the heart of Collingwood, chapel1885 combines the historic charm of a church with the romance of a luxurious New York City loft, it is the perfect space for an intimate and elegant wedding.

Originally built in 1885 and designed in the Gothic Revival style, the building combines exposed brick walls with a stunning timber ceiling handcrafted by 19th century shipbuilders. Large arched windows fill the interior with light, while intricately painted murals and chandeliers add the finishing touches. A beautiful view of Clifton Hill and the surrounding skyscape creates a romantic backdrop for photos.

The chapel also offers a grand piano, fireplace, a sitting room and a private bridal change room, a bar and a full caterer’s kitchen downstairs. A small courtyard on the premises away from food service is also available for the convenience of guests.

Welcoming external caterers and allowing BYO provides couples with the opportunity to create a wedding as unique as they are. Whether it be Ceremony only or Ceremony and Reception chapel1885 is set up exclusively to create the ‘wow’ factor for a magical day or night without the inconvenience and expense of travelling to rural areas to find a unique location.
