Established in 2007, Butterflute's Wedding Chapel is a repurposed boat lettering shop that also doubles as an art studio..  Victoria is an avid gardener and over the years transformed her corner of the shipyard into a charming garden. It is in this garden, amid the rough and tumble of the boatyard that the wedding ceremony is performed. There is also an interior room available for food and beverage display.
