Forest of Vows

The famous Brazilian novelist, Paulo Coelho once wrote: “In a forest of a hundred thousand trees, no two leaves are alike; in the same way no two journeys along the same path are alike.” With this in mind, we offer you our Forest of Vows. Nestled in the midst of an enchanting Eucalyptus Forest, is our beautiful open-air chapel offering seating for up to 200 guests on log pews. Make your way to the altar along a natural forest aisle to say your ‘I do’s’ under a canopy of leaves.

Tanglewood Chapel

Nestled amidst the picturesque landscape of the Farm Warmbad, the Tanglewood Chapel at The Family Tree of Dusk to Dawn stands as a timeless testament to love and history. This stone chapel, perched on the hallowed foundations of the farm’s old milk shed, encapsulates the essence of bygone eras while embracing the promise of new beginnings.

The chapel’s character is undeniably enriched by its unique features. Stained-glass windows, delicately bathe the space in a warm glow. This seamless harmony between old-world charm and modern elegance mirrors the broader narrative of the Family Tree Venue itself, which is built upon the enduring legacy of the farm’s original homestead.

The rich history of this venue, etched into its very foundations, makes the Tanglewood Chapel an ideal setting for intimate weddings, vow renewals, or any other celebrations that seek to honor tradition while forging new memories. The Tanglewood Chapel is not just a place; it’s a testament to the enduring power of love, the beauty of heritage, and the promise of a shared future. It invites couples to step into a timeless world where the past and present intermingle, creating a backdrop for love stories that will be cherished for generations to come.
