The Magic of Macnut
Macnut Farm is more than just a place for weddings; it’s an expression of art and love. The property features Hannah’s gallery, where she displays her brilliant and colourful creations, which reflect her energetic personality. A walk across the grounds reveals a variety of distinctive chapels. Built with artistic acuity and serves certain purposes. Hannah calls them Chapels but they are really sacred spaces that she connects with and wants to draw others in to experience.
Chapel of Love:
Built, in 2017, it’s the smallest chapel in the Southern Hemisphere, nestled under a giant pink Cedar tree. With cherubs on the ceiling symbolizing love and stained glass windows adorned with flowers, it’s a place of undeniable charm.
Chapel of Life:
Crafted from natural elements, this chapel represents the elements of earth, wind, fire, water, and metal. A torii gate at the entrance symbolizes the transition from the ordinary to the sacred.
Chapel of Abundance:
A place where edible plants and flowers thrive, and a fairy garden is under construction, offering an enchanting escape.
Chapel of Light:
A work in progress, this project will be a towering lantern like no other in KZN, with a special focus on the visually impaired. It will be a masterpiece of light, texture, and sound, made entirely of coloured glass, reflecting the wonder that is Macnut Farm.
“I love lying on the lawn and watching the tiniest of tiny creatures going about their business… all the little ants, spiders, critters, plants, mushrooms, birds, fish, everything that we share this space with. I tread with respect and in adoration of this land. She’s beautiful in all her ways”Hannah Paine
