Here are a few of our top picks from among the many al fresco wedding venues along the Garden Route in 2019:
Trinity Gate Farm
Trinity Gate Farm is situated on the Diepkloof 52 farm, a mere 15 minutes from the Southern Cape town of George, and a little shy of 30 minutes from Mossel Bay. The venue itself is a converted barn that has been fully restored and can now accommodate up to 200 guests at a time. The outdoor chapel boasts unparalleled views over the Outeniqua Mountains during ceremonies, and the barn-style hall is tailor-made for rustic weddings.
Arendsrus Country Lodge
Arendsrus Country Lodge is all about botanical scenery, sweeping views and true-blue old-school charm. Nestled at the foot of the majestic Outeniqua mountains, this picturesque venue can accommodate up to 80 guests in their Barn Yard or restaurant settings. The grounds also boast a newly-constructed outdoor chapel where couples can tie the knot.
Bella Manga Country Escape
Bella Manga Country Escape is a very stylish country wedding venue near Plettenberg Bay that is set within extensive mature gardens that make a lovely backdrop for any wedding, particularly in summer when you can head outdoors. The inside space walks out onto a spacious deck that gives way to the gardens. Bridal parties have the option of saying their I do’s in either a forest clearing or an intimate wooden chapel and the multi-faceted wedding venue can accommodate up to 120 guests.
