Situated on the picturesque Algoa Bay in South Africa’s Eastern Cape province, Port Elizabeth is known for its beautiful beaches and welcoming ambiance. Here along the Sunshine Coast, visitors from far and wide come to enjoy water sports, stroll along the waterfront, visit wildlife sanctuaries and drink in the lively atmosphere that has earned the city its moniker ‘The Friendly City’.
If pitching a wedding tent in or around PE sounds like the ideal setup for your wedding, you’re in luck! As one of the country’s preferred wedding tent rental providers, we know the lay of the land. Here are a few Port Elizabeth venues that we can highly recommend for an outdoor wedding in 2019:
Andante Wedding Venue
Andante Wedding Venue is located in the green pastures of the Murray Park just off the easily accessible Draaifontein Road in Port Elizabeth. If you’re after luxurious tranquility on your wedding day, this is the place to be. The gardens are stunning all year round and the ample reception hall can accommodate large numbers of guests, or be adapted to suit smaller wedding parties.
Swanlake Gardens Wedding & Function Venue
Situated just outside the suburbs of Port Elizabeth in the Theescombe area, Swanlake Gardens Wedding & Function Venue has a hall that can accommodate up to 120 guests, and a lovely deck that overlooks manicured gardens. Couples can say their I do’s in a pretty bush cathedral and the gardens itself may also be used for canapes and smaller outdoor receptions. The swans for which the venue is named are very much in evidence and will make a beautiful addition to the backdrop of your wedding pictures.
La Colline is located about 3km outside of Port Elizabeth, on a privately-owned country estate that offers a safe and inviting environment in which to host your wedding. The venue comprises a main hall with top-notch facilities, a wraparound balcony that can be enclosed, as well as a stunning deck that overlooks a valley. An on-site stone chapel is available for the ceremony.
