If you are currently shopping around for wedding venues in and around Darling in the Western Cape for your 2019 nuptials, you are in luck! We have been around the block quite a few times, so we are able to recommend some great spots that are suitable for al fresco weddings of all shapes and sizes. Here are our top picks of the many wonderful outdoor wedding venues in and around Darling for 2019:
Groote Post Wine Farm dates back to the 18th century and is home to Hilda’s Kitchen, an elegant restaurant filled with gorgeous antiques, set on a rolling lawn that overlooks the cellar. This is an ideal place to set up a wedding marquee if you wish to create some shaded outdoor space to mingle in the daytime, or would like to lay out a dance floor to bust some late-night moves. HOT TIP: Groote Post does not charge a venue hire fee! You will have to serve their wines at a very slight markup, but you’ll still save a bundle in the long run.
!Khwa ttu San Culture & Education Centre
!Khwa ttu San Culture & Education Centre is an ideal option if you want something a little different and would like to celebrate South Africa’s fascinating San heritage while you’re at it. Here, stunning scenery with views out over the fynbos and ocean make for a perfect backdrop for a truly memorable wedding celebration. Wedding parties of up to 100 guests can be accommodated in the on-site restaurant and under a tented marquee on the lawn. Opting for a more intimate celebration? You may be interested in the Boma setting, which can accommodate up to 40 guests.
Buffelsfontein Game & Nature Reserve
Buffelsfontein Game & Nature Reserve is a great spot to tie the knot if you want to enjoy the singular backdrop of a game reserve near South Africa’s beautiful West Coast. The reserve has a number of very competitively-priced wedding packages on offer that can be tailored according to your guest numbers and personal requirements.
