You’ll have the house to yourself.
Seacroft Chapel is a fully renovated, historic seaside chapel set on 15 acres.

It has been restored in the 1920’s style with original wood panelled doors, unique milk glass lighting and historic stained glass windows.

Stay with your closest friends and family onsite in Seacroft Estate Historic Homestead.

Enjoy our stunning views, lawns and gardens and beachfront access.

Our various accommodation onsite can sleep up to 50 people and is all included.

The space
Walk down the aisle through Seacroft Chapel's beautiful double stained glass chapel doors or if you prefer an outdoor service, we have a stunning decagon platform at the bottom of the lawn (available for a wedding platform May until September) that has a truly breathtaking backdrop of Cape Patton, the ocean and the forest that climbs up over the mountains.

As part of the Seacroft Chapel hire you have access to 20 full size sturdy trestles, 120 white indoor/outdoor wedding chairs that have padded seating, tableware and glassware for 100 and various other useful catering platters, bowls, bins, tubs and vases. A full list is available on request. The only thing you need to bring are tablecloths and napkins if you would like to use them.

Seacroft Chapel can be set up to cater for receptions of around 80-90 people. A popular choice for couples is to get married in the Chapel and then for the guests to have drinks and canapés on the lawn or in our dining hall while the Chapel is reset for the reception.

There is a small stage/altar in the Chapel.

In addition to our main kitchen there is a well-appointed small kitchen in the Chapel with a 90cm stove and oven as well as a lovely bathroom with high quality fittings.

There are two small single bedrooms along the side of the Chapel that can be used if need be. The Chapel can be set up as accommodation for 5 persons if you are not using it as a Chapel. This includes the 3 small bedrooms and a 4 poster bed in the main space.
Two of the bedrooms can still be used if the Chapel is cleared. The 4 poster bed is only available if the Chapel is not cleared for wedding purposes.

Other accommodation options include 15 bedrooms around a courtyard near the homestead, Ocean View Cottage (sleeps 6 in two bedrooms) Bay View Cottage (sleeps 2), Seacroft Chapel (sleeps 5 if not used cleared), Sea View Retreat (sleeps 2), Seacroft Treehouse (sleeps 2) and our Lotus Belle glamping tent that sleeps 2 on a luxury king bed. Note that our tent is only up for the warmer months and is permanently on the decagon platform.

Guest access
Extensive gardens and lawns. Outdoor dining and chiminea.

Other things to note
Note that your group will need to do all the setting up of any tables and chairs and that this furniture needs to be returned to its storage place following your event.

No stiletto heels - STRICTLY - must be put on invitations

We have a list of local caterers familiar with this venue, as well as other useful contacts such as a florist and stylist and photographers.

All equipment brought into the chapel must have floor protection to protect the historic timbers.
Nothing additional can be strung up in the Chapel, which includes lighting or bunting. Lighting stands may be used.
Nothing can be attached to any of the milk glass lights
No hooks or any other fittings can be attached to the walls.
No confetti (rose petals are fine)
No animals
No candles on the floors or window ledges – candles on the tables with proper table protection is accepted.

If there is anything you would like to occur at your wedding that is possibly unusual please discuss this with management.

There is a flat lawn in front of the Chapel that can accommodate a marquee if you would like. Please inform management if you are wanting a marquee.

Note that the hire of Seacroft does not include the use of the surrounding farmland.

If you use the platform for your wedding (in the cooler months) then our capacity is 50 as we take down our Lotus Belle Tent.
Note our Lotus Belle Tent is permanent for the warmer months and cannot be taken down.

There is no provision for extra guests above 50 within our accommodation.

If any 'quotes' are given, these do not include the Airbnb fees which are payable by the guest.

Bookings for long weekends are a three day minimum booking.

There is limited space for camping onsite and it is dependant on if you are having a marquee. All camping location and numbers of people must be cleared with management. It is very limited so that it does not comprimise your other guests.

Location

Sugarloaf, Victoria, Australia

We are situated in a place of natural beauty. Looking East we have spectacular views of Cape Patton and the State Forest climbing up over the hills. Looking West we have views all the way along the coast to Apollo Bay and beyond.

There is a secluded beach right across the road with amazing volcanic rock pools to explore, swimming holes in the rocks that warm up during the day and a sandy little beach. There is also a spectacular 45 minute walk from Seacroft to the Carisbrook Waterfalls.
There is a major koala population 5 minutes up the road, a multitude of different birds, echidnas and kangaroos if you are lucky, fishing off the rocks in front, dolphins who regularly visit and whales in the winter!
