Situated on the shores of Strangford Lough, County Down, Old Court Chapel is a place that captures the true magic of small weddings and elopements. One look at this destination and you’ll be smitten by its beauty. Built in 1629 as a private chapel for the de Ros Family, Old Court Chapel has transformed into a destination for couples looking for a venue that’s perfect for intimate weddings and gatherings.

The venue’s main attraction is a 17th Century Church sitting on a high wooded bank where you can hold your ceremony. Step inside this structure and you’ll be in awe of its classic architecture and timeless details. You can imagine yourself walking down the aisle of this church and creating a great memory in the process.

Step outside and you’ll be greeted by acres of natural gardens. The lush greeneries and wide open spaces are exclusively yours for the whole day. If you want, you can set the entire ceremony in this location to give your wedding a laidback vibe. You just need the right kind of styling to make this spot into a whimsical and breathtaking venue for your wedding ceremony.

Of course, every solemn ceremony deserves a fun and memorable reception afterward. Don’t fret because the Old Court Chapel has you covered. There are restored stables and a yurt-inspired Marquee where you and your guests can enjoy each other’s company without any complications. This spot can house a maximum of 120 people, making it perfect for couples who are aiming for a small wedding or elopement.
