We offer a unique and private event that will take shape and form around your dream. We recommend that your wedding extend over an entire weekend, giving you enough time to socialize and reconnect with your family and friends, as opposed to just a couple of hours, as is so common of city weddings. The venue is suitable for 50 to 200 guests, 50 guests for an indoor event and up to 200 in the garden or marquee tent.
We have professional decorators at your service, and they will take care of everything, from the flowers to the smallest details. The setting provides an opportunity for a range of unique and beautiful wedding photographs, to capture the wonderful memories of this special day.
The kitchen staff with their 18 years of culinary experience, will treat you and your guests to a gourmet feast of South African cuisine, from a selection of menus.
