Real weddings

Setting the scene

Your wedding venue is the backdrop for your whole day. Everything from the decorations to the photographs will be influenced by your choice, which is why it’s always at the top of any priority list

City weddings may have that sleek vibe and be oh-so modern and cool, but the charm of a countryside wedding can’t be denied. There’s something magical about the idyllic setting of the big fig tree and the backdrop of the Waterberg . We’re not talking cowboy boots and pickup trucks, here — we’re dreaming scenic mountains and a modern thatched roof hall overlooking the dam

The ceremony

The wedding ceremony can be held on our manicured lawns overlooking the Dam or under the very unique fig tree in the natural bush. Each option can cater for both large and more intimate weddings. Our neutral, warm interiors can accommodate any wedding theme or color scheme. Light filters through the panoramic windows, offering views of both the water and the surrounding scenery. Breathtaking natural surroundings offer an ideal setting for wedding photography to capture those everlasting memories

Table settings

If you are lucky enough to have your wedding in the actual countryside, keep your decorations minimal for outdoor receptions or ceremonies—the surrounding scenery is all that’s needed for a stunning backdrop. Let reception tables glow underneath some bistro lights or couple of candles or prop up a table with wild brambles and greenery.
