The Greenhouse Chapel is a unique highlight of Lieu De Grace. Featuring exposed roof trusses and large sand blasted windows which create picture perfect diffused light, the chapel is open, light and airy with added greenery.
A greenhouse filled with plants form the entrance to the chapel. The bride will make her way to her groom down a 30 meter long isle, which can be decorated with petals, Persian carpets, etc.
The combination of the greenhouse and chapel offer couples the opportunity to create a whimsical and romantic ambience, without adding too many decor or frills. Its simplistic building style allows for various looks to be created and the options are truly endless.
Should the need arise, an outside ceremony can alternatively be arranged under a stretch tent or large gazebo, on any of the terraced areas surrounding the venue.
A GREENERY HEAVEN
The Reception Hall is a lovely light-drenched, warehouse-style hall, boasting white washed brick walls, exposed steel beams and natural cement floors.
An open floor space of 240 square meters offers ample room for unhindered movement, and a total of 20-180 seated guests can be hosted per event.
French windows and doors on both the left and right side of the entry hall, open up beautifully into the main hall. Seven magnificent arched windows on the West side of the main hall allow for natural light to flow through.
On the East side of the main hall, sliding doors open up to an enclosed porch overlooking another grass terrace with seating and boma(fire pit) area. This area is also used as the smoker’s area.
After the reception comes to an end at midnight, the boma can be used as an intimate gathering place for your remaining guests.
The paved French Riviera or Italian Cafe style terrace leading towards the main entrance of the venue, is ideal for canape’s and cocktails. Large cantilever umbrellas are placed around this area during hot summer afternoons.
Adjacent to the paved area, a lavish grass terrace framed with rocket conifer trees is ideal for lawn games, pillows and pallet seats where guests can relax.
The property has an abundance of newly planted trees and garden beds with many plants. Eucalyptus trees surround the property and give it a beautiful frame on the south side.
Ice berg roses, a horse paddock with two free roaming horses, wide open spaces and ranch poles frame the long drive way from the entrance gate up to the venue.
GRACE UPON GRACE
Touches of soft grey, white and blush make this room inviting yet sophisticated. The headboard is a built in arched window with sandblasted glass. The diffused natural light streaming in makes the Bridal Suite a photographer’s dream!
The bathroom is finished with a cement vanity and basin, a free standing bath with plenty of open space and lots of light.
Outside, a private little garden with seating is covered with a large cantilever umbrella, so the bridal party can relax with a glass of wine and treats before the ceremony.
The Bridal Suite doubles as your Honeymoon Suite on the night of your wedding and is included in the venue hire.
The Groom’s Suite with a shower, toilet and basin is available to the groom for getting ready before the wedding.
The masculine feel is echoed through leather and wood accents. An Inguni hide on the floor, leather furniture and an open sleeper wood cupboard form focal points in the suite.
Outside the suite, steps lead to a wooden deck on the upper level where the guys can bond and relax before the ceremony.
The Groom’s Suite is included in the venue hire.
