The Garden

Mediterranean -themed Michelangelo-styled fresco artwork non denomination Chapel and Reception nestled amongst vineyards and olive groves and surrounded by delightful gardens.

Spring sees the delightful cherry blossoms which confetti the lawns in the pink blossom carefully watched over by the Cherubs throughout the gardens and in the Chapel.

The extensive grounds include private beach access and present many romantic spots for both indoor/outdoor ceremonies and photos.

The Gardener

Owner/Operators Diane and Bill Osborne started this project after visiting the Butchart Gardens in Victoria on Vancouver Island in Canada in 1995, we were so inspired by the beauty of the gardens we decided we would bring some of its beauty back with us and after a lot of research came up with our Mediterranean theme seeing the introduction of Chapel and Reception mixed with vineyard, olives and gardens. Its a dream come true.
