Country Wedding Venue

In The Beautiful Natal Midlands

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT!

You’re engaged, high on love and feeling excited!
Then the mind starts: Everyone wants to know everything – from the wedding date to the bridesmaid dress color.
It’s easy to feel a little overwhelmed at this stage, but we are glad to see that you have taken the first step and started your venue search!
There is no mistake that our paths have crossed. You wanted something special? You found it.

Combining a premium boutique Bed and Breakfast with a magnificent four tiered country wedding venue – you are not simply hiring a wedding venue,
but partnering with us to create a series of memorable moments resulting in a remarkable experience to be remembered.


FOUR MAGNIFICENT INTERCONNECTED VENUES

Our venue rental promises you the exclusive use of four magnificent venues, all seamlessly blending to craft your perfect wedding day.

From the intimate ceremony to the delightful canapés and the grand reception, each area boasts its unique charm, promising an array of unforgettable moments for your family and loved ones throughout your special day.

THE PAVILION


The Pavilion, with its open-sided design graced by beautiful mosaic pillars and elegant chandeliers, offers a stunning panoramic view of tranquil pastures.

Its open-truss roof features clear sides and quintessential rafters, thoughtfully interspersed with skylights that bathe the space in natural light. As our Nguni Cattle herd grazes peacefully in front of The Pavilion, they provide a picturesque and memorable backdrop for your guests upon arrival.

Typically serving as a serene setting for ceremonies, The Pavilion can transform to suit any weather. Should the skies turn grey, we can enclose the venue with canvas sidewalls, while maintaining the sophisticated ambiance with a glass-backed bridal platform.

THE PIAZZA


Adjacent to The Pavilion lies The Piazza, a fully walled Tuscan-style open courtyard enveloped by a bespoke Bedouin-style tent that spans its entirety. Enclosed by stunning grey stone walls and featuring two grand wooden doors that usher guests into The Gallery, this space exudes romance. The thoughtful uplighting tracing the walls and the charming water feature crafted from milk pails come together to create an enchanting atmosphere as night falls. Above, hundreds of meters of warm-toned fairy lights line the tent’s canopy.

The Piazza accommodates up to 150 seated guests for an elegant reception.

Should you choose The Gallery for the reception, The Piazza transforms seamlessly into a sophisticated area for cocktails, a buffet, or a whimsical dance space under fairy lights.

THE GALLERY


As you step through the grand Piazza doors, you are welcomed into The Gallery. This exquisitely appointed venue, crafted from hand-cut sandstone and adorned with Oregon pine and yellowwood accents, awaits to be the canvas for your special day.

Each end of this expansive hall boasts a magnificent fireplace set against dry-stacked stone, providing a romantic ambiance that is both elegant and inviting. The lighting, drapery, and decor have been thoughtfully curated to ensure a warm and enchanting atmosphere that will captivate you and your guests.

The Gallery can seat up to 100 guests for a reception. Should you choose to host the reception in The Piazza, The Gallery gracefully transforms into an enchanting area for the buffet/desert displays, dance floor and group photos.

THE LAWN


Imagine the dream canapé hour surrounded by the natural beauty of The Midlands – The Lawn, our stunning outdoor venue next to The Pavilion. This leveled-off lawn is perfect for cocktails and intimate gatherings. While you and your partner capture cherished moments during your photo shoot, your guests can savor the serene scenery and even meet our charming Nguni cattle.

From beautiful harvest tables to a stylish gin bar, The Lawn can be tailored to your vision.
If the weather takes an unexpected turn, don’t worry! We’re fully equipped to relocate the canape hour to The Pavilion or Piazza, ensuring your special day remains absolutely magical.

Sometimes You Will Never Know The Value Of A Moment, Until It Becomes A Memory.
