Top wedding venues in Gauteng for 2015 - Part 1

Venues in and around Pretoria and Johannesburg are a dime a dozen with traditional wedding venues and established estates being the most popular. However, one of the trends I’ve seen is utilising an existing space (restaurant, function hall) as a venue. These may not be a super obvious choice when planning a wedding but coupled with the right decor (and attitude) these newer venues can do the trick! Here are our the first five of our top ten venues in Gauteng for 2015:

White Light One of The Forum Company’s newest additions to their already impressive list of venues, is White Light. It is a chic, crisp functional space close to Lanseria airport and has a lovely chapel-esque area for the nuptials as well as beautiful country scenery. Lots of natural light and voluminous ceilings add to the industrial country feel this venue offers.

The Private Room With a sweeping view of Jozi, this modern, enclosed space in Kyalami allows you to put your stamp on it. Used for birthdays, corporate functions and product launches, The Private Room is also an option for couples who are looking for a fuss free wedding. These guys have their own team of chefs, barmen and organisers, so it doesn't get easier than this!

Shine Studios If the idea of a New York "City Love" wedding appeals, then look at Shine Studios in Braamfontein. They have a few different options for events/ launches/ commercial productions and I particularly love the view of Newtown and Nelson Mandela Bridge! You will have to bring in all your tables, chairs, linens, caterers etc. but the end result is worth it.

Olive & Plates Located in the heart of Jozi at WITS, Olive & Plates is a Cape Dutch styled venue, run by their very own caterers. They also have a hall that can be used as a chapel. Good food, lovely architecture and beautiful gardens... what's not to love?

Villa Paradiso Situated in Hartebeespoort Dam, right by the newly refurbished cable car, Villa Paradiso is 4 star country manor with chapel functionality, surrounded by the majestic Magaliesburg mountains. It has lovely views of the dam and is photo opportunities up the Harties Cable Way make this venue a winner.

  1. Yeah you are right that selecting the perfect wedding location venue for your wedding party might be one of the most challenging tasks that you can do. I must say that you have to take help from the local event planners.
