Queen's Park Bush Chapel


This open-air Bush Chapel is situated in the grounds of Queen’s Park in Ipswich and is a beautiful spot to share nuptials with your beloved, surrounded by family and friends.

Two rows of quaint, white bench-style seating are perfectly spaced for guests to each have the best seat in the house (or the garden) and, depending on the time of year and the time of day of your wedding ceremony, you may also enjoy the shade cast down by the majestic trees nearby.
