Step back in time as you enter this unique wedding venue in northwest Melbourne, where a New York-inspired loft meets an original Gothic Revival church. Chapel1885's characterful mix of old and new will bring a vintage charm to your Collingwood wedding.

Combining the historic charm of a church with the romance of a luxurious New York loft, it’s the perfect space for an intimate and memorable wedding.

Designed in the Gothic Revival style, the original 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, two sitting rooms, a bar space, kitchen and a private bridal change room. A small courtyard on the premises away from food service is also available for the convenience of our guests.

Chapel 1885 is happy to offer you the flexibility to host outside vendors of your choice. We are also happy to recommend our preferred caterers.

We had the most wonderfully intimate ceremony and celebration at Chapel1885, the venue is magical and Felicity and the team went above and beyond for us and our guests!! We live-streamed our event as well as having a small number of guests present and everyone has complemented us on our venue choice!! We are eternally grateful for how amazing our day was, we would do it again in a heartbeat!! You must check this venue out if you’re looking for something special, thank you Chapel1885 for making our day the most amazing day of our lives!! Lots of love from the Barkers ❤️

A gorgeous venue with so much character, so happy we stumbled upon it! Barely needs any styling as it is already such a romantic and elegant space. The huge window, the gorgeous high ceilings and full of beautiful eclectic furniture. We had an intimate ceremony followed by a sit down dinner with 30 guests. Felicity was a pleasure to work with, she made it easy for us to plan the whole event from interstate during lockdown, from Facetime tours to recommending a fantastic caterer. Her and her partner were fantastic on the night, making us feel at ease that everything was under control, and the entire night went off without a hitch. Location is 10/10, in the heart of Collingwood, very easy to access public transport/taxis/Ubers, but in a relatively quiet back street. Highly recommend!

I cannot say enough about this place. Beautifully decorated and serene. It is the perfect venue for a classy intimate wedding. Centrally located, Felicity was amazing to work with to create our ideal wedding day.
