Venue Category: Country Wedding Venues
Designed as an all-in-one wedding venue, encompassing a romantic chapel, elegant ballroom, luxurious bridal suite, 4-star accommodation and picturesque gardens, The Plantation captures the spirit of love, happiness and celebration on your wedding day. With its impeccable levels of service, superb cuisine, and unique extras such as a horse drawn Victorian carriage, The Plantation prides itself on being the Eastern Cape’s most exclusive wedding venue.
The Plantation Chapel
Mother Nature is a guest of honour at The Plantation’s charming chapel.Indigenous birds serenade the wedding ceremony, and natural light streams in over the bride and groom. While being fully roofed, the chapel has open sides, inviting the beautiful forest in while offering full protection from wind and rain. A quaint wishing well fountain at the chapel’s entrance provides guests with the perfect opportunity to wish the couple well in their marriage, and offers an ideal setting for photographs. The chapel links to The Plantation ballroom via an enchanting wooded forest walkway.
The Plantation Ballroom
The Plantation’s ballroom epitomizes the spirit of romance and love. Fairy lights twinkle in the open rafters and large arched windows and doors provide panoramic views of the beautiful surroundings. Our spectacular gardens are landscaped and manicured all year round to ensure the perfect setting for your wedding ceremony, reception and photographs. A full wrap around porch and large covered patio allow functions to spill into the garden, which is lit at night with Victorian lampposts, up lighters and fairy lights. In summer, colonial paddle fans keep guests cool while in winter, a fire roars in the grand fireplace to heat the room. Elegant chandeliers and wall lights can be dimmed to create a cosy and romantic atmosphere. The solid teak floor is perfect for dancing the night away, and the neutral walls and curtains ensure that all colour schemes look perfect. The Plantation venue seats up to 200 guests. More intimate weddings also fit comfortably without impacting the cosy, comfortable atmosphere of the ballroom. Tables can be placed in a number of configurations, to suit your style and requirements. Large ladies and gents cloakrooms provide comfort for guests and disabled facilities are available.
The Plantation Bridal Suite
The Bridal Suite is offered for brides to prepare themselves before the ceremony, and for the bridal couple’s first night. Hairdressers and make up artists can do the bridal party’s hair and make up on site, alleviating the stress of arriving at your wedding on time! The Bridal suite offers a great way to kick start wedding celebrations and the perfect setting for pre wedding photographs. A beautiful teak sleigh bed and beach house décor provide a romantic, private environment for the bride and groom’s first night together. Champagne breakfast is served in the bridal suite the morning after the wedding.
The Plantation’s Horse & Carriage
Our hunting green Victorian carriage is pulled by our beautiful carriage horse, Destiny. Destiny is driven by a trained driver and groom, dressed in full carriage finery. She transports the bride to the chapel in stylish vintage elegance, and whisks the bride and groom away for a romantic carriage ride following the ceremony.
