Hilton Cairns Wedding Chapel

Hilton Blue Horizon Chapel

The Hilton Blue Horizon Chapel is an exclusive, purpose built, non-denominational wedding chapel situated on the stunning foreshore of the Cairns inlet in the grounds of the acclaimed Hilton Hotel Cairns. This is a state of the art wedding chapel featuring all glass walls with a canopy of sails suggesting a vista similar to a grand sailing ship. The entire chapel is set in a reflecting pond; the bride and groom look out over an infinity waterfall that flows from the reflection pond with views taking in the magnificent grounds of the Hilton Cairns and further on, to the waters of Trinity inlet.

The chapel is approximately 60 square meters in size and is fully air conditioned for guests comfort. There is individual seating for 36 guests, with additional standing room for another six guests internally. There is additional standing room outside the chapel, with speakers to enable those guests to hear the ceremony, and of course, they can watch the ceremony by standing at the edge of the water feature and looking back into the Chapel through the glass windows.

The number standing inside can be increased by simply removing some chairs.
