Your Queensland Wedding Chapel & Barn

City Chic meets Stylish Country, our ABIA Industry Accredited, White Chapel Kalbar

White Chapel Kalbar is South East Queensland’s quaint wedding venue and only 55 minutes from Brisbane. It’s located in a gorgeous, country town called ‘Kalbar’ located in the stunning Scenic Rim.

The beautifully renovated 134-year-old country church is now the ‘White Chapel’ wedding venue. 

The style is city chic meets stylish country.  It boasts all the romance of a cute country church but offers all the mod cons, technology, and creature comforts you’d expect from the very best high-end city venue.

Your Wedding Ceremony


Set on half an acre sits White Chapel Kalbar – a historic late 1800’s chapel which has been transformed into an elegant chapel with original timber floors, American style wainscoting timber trim, chandeliers, and lighting imported from Texas and includes a luxurious ‘partner’s waiting room’ at the back of the chapel.

The Chapel has a 90 person seated capacity.

Your Wedding Reception is right next door to the chapel.

An amazing bonus of White Chapel Kalbar is that your wedding party doesn’t have to travel anywhere for the reception. 

Behind the Chapel and its beautifully landscaped gardens, you’ll find ‘Black Hall’ the original old Sunday school which has now been transformed into a stylish Amish style-barn.

The 1934 Sunday School hall has been transformed into an elegant, country hall that meets a 6-star hunting lodge design. Black panelled walls, antler chandelier, and fireplace complete the picture. Black Hall can hold receptions for 70 seated and 85 cocktail style.

Beyond Black Hall is the ‘Barn bar and Grounds’. 

The Barn Bar features many of the recycled chapel materials, such as old gothic windows and doors and signs. You’ll love the hand-made pressed metal bar, the antique roll-top bath for drinks & the vintage ladder chandeliers.

Extra wedding activities on the property.

There’s also a manicured lawn area called ‘The Grounds’ which is ideal for wedding games and can even accommodate a dreamy, outdoor wedding. It’s the perfect place for after-ceremony drinks and yard games. 

The Grounds’ is ideal for outdoor weddings and can be set up with festoon lighting and barrels for evening drinks.
