5 “off the beaten track” wedding venues in Gauteng

It's no secret that Gauteng has a number of wonderful wedding venues. Once you start your wedding venue search, the Muldersdrift wedding mile comes to mind and with it the wonderful Oakfield Farm, Avianto, Moon and Sixpence and others. Or you may come across some Country Club venues in and around Johannesburg and Pretoria. But today we want to present you with our top 5 “off the beaten track” wedding venues in Gauteng. Think palatial barns, decks overlooking ponds with ducks and quaint, enclosed patios. These venues are different from the ‘usual’ and their uniqueness lend them to being "off the beaten track". It is just a coincidence that 4 of the 5 are situated in Pretoria East!

5) Rosemary Hill
Situated on beautiful farmland just 10 minutes from Pretoria East, this venue specializes in authentic farm weddings, whether it be rustic, vintage or shabby chic. They also have a labyrinth, a barn and teagarden and it is a fully functioning organic farm.

4)Olive Mystery
Just 20 minutes from Pretoria, in Bapsfontein, resides Olive Mystery. Perfect rustic charm for a perfect country wedding. The charming farm surrounds make for wonderful photo opportunities and this venue is easy on the pocket without compromising on quality.

3) Vivere Country Estate
Also situated in Pretoria East past Silver Lakes this new kid on the block combines French charm with rustic country. With attention paid to the tiniest aesthetic detail, this venue is a perfect blend of sophistication and timelessness. There is a lovely man made deck which overlooks a pond with small ducks, as well as some wildlife which roam the adjacent gardens of the estate.

2) The Pudding Shop
La Cucino di Ciro, in Parktown North is a Mediterranean styled venue, inspired by the "Lale Restaurant" in Istanbul, Turkey. Due to word of mouth it became known as “The Pudding Shop” from its wide selection of desserts. The actual restaurant serves as the venue and you can take wonderful creative photos in the Pudding Shop at the back of the main restaurant. We love the textured walls, and the patio style dining option.

2) Ludwigs Roses
Our number one pick for an "off the beaten track" wedding venue is a rose farm in Pretoria. Just before you reach Vivere Country Estate, you will see a sign for Ludwig’s Roses. Originally (and still) a rose farm, the one barn on the property was used to function as a wedding venue for the first time when Ludwig’s eldest daughter Heike got married in March 2011. A perfect blend of rustic farm with over the top bling, as per the chandeliers in the barn.

  8. Salle de reception de mariage
    If you prefer something more simple, decorate the entrance of the hall with floral bouquets in vases on decorative tables. The bouquets, colour-coordinated with your wedding colours, should be large and noticeable on each side of the hall's doors.

  15. In this essay I will consider the social, economic and political factors of macclesfield wedding venues. I find my self constantly drawn back to the subject of macclesfield wedding venues. Given that its influence pervades our society, it is yet to receive proper recognition for laying the foundations of democracy. Since it was first compared to antidisestablishmentarianism much has been said concerning macclesfield wedding venues by the over 50, obviously. Keeping all of this in mind, in this essay I will examine the major issues.

  17. The first thing you need to decide is the size of your event and if the concept of a large occasion makes you cringe, you can proceed for a smaller one, more intimate event where just those closest to you will help you celebrate.

  23. True!! Gauteng is a place where we can find number of beautiful venues. Before starting preparations of marriage first thing that comes in mind is Venue and its location!! And I think if someone will see these venues once, then can’t deny booking these venues. While I was searching for venues for my wedding I got a list of beautiful venue space nyc also. You can also check them if you needs glamorous venues for your party.

  24. Your blog was great because you've been listed those cool venues for wedding. I think I can choose the best wedding location for me on those list but if I am not satisfied on those places, I can also find a Melbourne conference venue because they have also a list of nice venues on their website.
