Mrs Owens Chapel

Discover the micro wedding experience in urban Newcastle

The dream of the big white wedding has had quite the reality check for many couples over the years. The rising cost of living and the changing nature of the wedding industry is seeing people consider alternatives to their big day.

Whether it’s an elopement, a low-key event, or a micro-wedding – the wedding industry surely is getting a shake-up. For those who may already be considering their nuptial options, finding somewhere in Newcastle that offers it all in a fuss-free package is hard to find. One little joint in Islington has thought of it all – offering you and your partner an experience as unique as you both are.

Meet Mrs Owens Chapel.

Brought to you by Clint and Brad, the dynamic duo behind The Owens Collective, Mrs Owens Chapel is the newest addition to the Islington venue and could be your answer to wedding stress.

“Getting married is momentous. It’s wonderful. It’s life-changing. But for too many of us, it can be unnecessarily stressful and expensive. At Mrs Owens Chapel, we make your wedding ceremony intimate, truly special, and smooth sailing – while also being kind to your bank balance,” Clint said.

If you’ve visited the Maitland Road spot before, you might recognise the Showroom Space that has played host to many an artist exhibition, networking event, or brand launch party. The Showroom has now found another purpose, and another personality for that matter, in the form of a wedding venue under Mrs Owens Chapel.

“I did a tonne of research on what is happening internationally and nationally on what is happening with current trends in weddings. I built this model for people to be able to have a premium style event but at a cheaper price.”

The concept is new to launch with Clint already saying they’ve had 30+ enquiries – showing just how popular this concept is going to be.

“The experience you get from just walking in here, not only is it premium but it’s totally unique. I want to make sure people truly understand how special the experience is.”

If you’re the sort of couple looking for an out-of-the-ordinary experience, who loves a little bit of quirky, and loves saving some $$$, Mrs Owens Chapel invites you to explore their exquisite packages.

“It’s not necessarily a Vegas-style wedding, but it’s that concept of let’s just go to the chapel and do it!”

Mrs Owens Chapel has curated three packages to choose from, as well as a selection of optional extras to add to your experience. Check out our quick rundown below, or if details are more your vibe, click here to read the full descriptions.

The Let's Just Do It Package

For the couple that just wants to get married – no strings attached! Make the most of your wedding day with a bundled-up package that includes the bare necessities (plus an extra sparkle) that you need to tie the knot.  

The Hour of Love Package

It’s in the name – this package gives you a full hour of love for your special day. Take all the inclusions from the Lets Just Do It Package and add a photo booth, charcuterie plate & canapes, and a bubbles & beer station. 

The Love-In Package

Suited for those who are after a little more magic and detail in their special day, with all the inclusions in the Hour of Love Package plus an extra hour to enjoy the space and heartfelt ‘voice notes’ – digital voice recordings from each of your guests.

The venue’s add-ons include invites, voice notes, cake, bouquet upgrades, personalised ceremony options, and the option to book on-site accommodation upstairs at Mrs Owen’s Lofts (complete with rooftop pool).

“Mrs Owens Chapel is an industrial warehouse renovated into the perfect setting for chic elopements, micro weddings, and intimate celebrations. Your wedding will resonate with your personal style, be stress-free, and be unforgettably special.”

To celebrate the new offering to the local wedding scene, Mrs Owens Chapel is offering a 10% discount for the first five weddings booked (and deposit taken) prior to Christmas 2023.

If you’re thinking about getting hitched and doing it a little differently, say goodbye to the wedding overwhelm and lock down your special day at Mrs Owens Chapel.
