Chapel Farm is a delightful venue in the Swan Valley offering a mix of services which make it quite unique. It is firstly a rustic and charming restaurant and bar called the Tap which provides good food and a great range of beers and wines for a casual lunch or dinner (Thursday – Sunday inclusive). The menu consists of tapas plates and wood-fired pizzas. It is a popular lunch stop for wine tours.
Weddings at Chapel Farm
Secondly Chapel Farm is a wedding and function venue for those seeking something different.
For couples seeking a rustic ‘all at one venue’ wedding ceremonies are often held in the garden overlooking Jane Brook. The ‘olden-day’ country style is best suited to vintage wedding cars like our Rolls Royce Silver Wraith and the REO SpeedWagon limousine.
The functions area opens out onto the pastures looking across Jane Brook and the building is made of old stone and wood beams with a corrugated iron roof lending a country farm atmosphere to events. Fun is the most common word that couples use when describing a reception at Chapel Farm at the end of the night during their end of night get-away when transferring the couple to a city hotel.
Accommodation at Chapel Farm
Thirdly Chapel Farm offers a range of chalet accommodation for couples seeking a truly everything at one venue wedding or an easy weekend escape from the city to spend time in the Swan Valley.
Limousine access at Chapel Farm
True to its character Chapel Farm has a large gravel car park dotted with trees and fence posts. The venue has two driveways off Toodyay Road (not necessarily use as an entrance and exit by all drivers) which removes the need to turn around inside the venue. On a good day the car park will accommodate all forms of transport from Chrysler limos, Hummers and 50 passenger buses through to classic wedding cars with ease.
At night when hosting a big wedding the car park can become quite congested and difficult for larger limousines to navigate in the dark to get near the reception venue. It all depends upon how and where the guests have parked. The only consideration to be made if you are planning a formal exit from the venue to a waiting car at night it may be safer to choose a chauffeur sedan, classic car or small limousine if you want to be collected at the door (and don’t want to walk across the car park). The car park is pea-gravel gravel so it always tricky to walk on in heels and can become slippery and muddy in wet weather.
If you are planning to have your arrival photographed or videoed it is wise to have a member of your family reserve the parking bays near the entrance so you can have a clear path and photos free of odd cars in the background.
Chapel Farm is a fun lunch stop for groups wanting a tapas or pizza lunch with both beers and wines available for consideration. As Chapel Farm do not make their own beers or wines it is not a venue that we frequently use for a casual stop over on Swan Valley wine tours but we will do so if you would like to experience it on the day.
