The Ottawa Wedding Chapel was built in 1907, serving its entire church life as a Baptist church. In fact, the full-immersion baptism tank still lies beneath the floor in the archway at the front of the sanctuary. The building features high tin ceilings and plenty of stunning stained glass – even the basement windows. The stained glass features the trinity in floral motif, but otherwise has no overt religious symbols, except for one window featuring a cross that had been replaced in the 1960s or 1970s. The chapel’s curved pews seat approximately 90 people, with room for up to 150. A major renovation was undertaken in 2012-13 that uncovered the wood flooring and brought all of the wood trim back to its original lustre. The ample back yard features flower gardens and a variety of photo-worthy backdrops. The chapel is mainly used for weddings, but it is also available for other rentals, hosting 40-50 events each year. Check out their website and take a virtual tour as part of Digital Doors Open.
