The Parlour at Manns Chapel – one of the Best Intimate Wedding Venues in Chapel Hill
If you are a couple who values the story behind the place where you are to say, “I do,” then The Parlour at Manns Chapel is a must-see. In recent years, the historic chapel was refurbished and converted into one of the best intimate wedding venues in Chapel Hill. Perfect for a NC wedding for up to 100 guests, this chapel lends itself to seated dinner receptions. The outdoor garden patio can be used as the ceremony space, cocktail hour, or for post-dinner dancing under the stars!

History of The Parlour at Manns Chapel in Chatham County
Established in 1887 and later decommissioned in 1985, this charming chapel still holds a soft spot in the hearts of the surrounding community. Abandoned but not forgotten, some saw the chapel as “too far gone” but the creative team behind this project celebrated restoring this old building, like saving an old friend. It is here in the heart of Chatham County where we dream up ideas, romanticize everything and host events where every detail is beautifully thoughtful and unique. The chapel is sweet and simple; unpretentious yet tastefully elegant. Not your traditional catering hall or trendy meeting space – here style and tradition is celebrated uniquely.
Thanks to much thoughtful re-purposing, the chapel is living her second life and is our one-of-a-kind space for spirited events, creative workshops, markets, and business meetings – for consultations, fittings, book signings, chef dinners, and a truly unique setting for film & photo.
