Colourfully quaint wedding at Duncan Yard

With the plethora of venues in and around Joburg and Pretoria nowadays, it's quite novel to find one that isn’t too well known as a wedding venue, but delivers as one. It has been said that one of the big trends for 2012 is that brides are going to favour alternative locations as ceremony and reception venues. And one such venue that we predict will be pretty popular is shopper’s paradise Duncan Yard. Nestled in the heart of bustling Pretoria in the Hatfield/Brooklyn region, this little boutique lifestyle centre is quite unique and more recently its flagship restaurant, Pappas, has been host to a few weddings this year. A while ago we posted a wedding held at this very venue. What makes this venue a winner is its quaintness and authenticity and the fact that the whole of Duncan Yard serves as a photographer dream. Duncan Yard will also be hosting its first ever bridal showcase in March 2012, and this is set to establish the venue permanently on the wedding map, as it is host to a myriad of suppliers relevant to the wedding industry: hair, makeup, decor, beauty etc. For more info, visit

This colourful wedding was shot by Yolande Marx and she captured the fun, whimsical elements and ambiance of the day. We’re loving the candy bar, the coloured lanterns and the plain yet rustic looking centrepieces. Even Duncan Yard's resident chicken, Herklaas, was part of the festivities...
