Traditionally peak wedding season has been during spring and summer, with venues heavily booked up and long waiting lists, this is fast changing. With many couples opting for winter weddings both here in South Africa and overseas the wedding industry has adapted accordingly.
There is no reason today why a winter wedding should not be as beautiful, romantic and comfortable as a summer wedding. We are very lucky in South Africa that we have so many places of such magnificent natural beauty that offer a magical backdrop to any wedding celebration. We are also lucky that some parts of the country offer year round good weather.
This being said, with the Tentickle stretch team on the job, there are very few venues where the weather need determine the venue choice. Our tents can be set up almost anywhere to create a dream winter wedding. Rain or shine, our tents are designed to look great and offer protection from the elements. We use the best quality stretch tent fabrics that have been tested to ensure that the water stays out and the warmth stays in. Our team has the experience and expertise to pitch the tents so that your wedding looks exactly like you want it to and the weather is not an issue.
Here are our top three favourite winter wedding wonderlands:
Pat Busch Mountain Reserve
“Surrounded by mountains at the end of a country road,” Pat Busch Mountain Reserve is the ideal outdoor winter wedding venue. Near Robertson in the Western Cape, this idyllic venue is nestled in a valley, flanked by fynbos. With rolling lawns, magnificent vistas on site accommodation it is perfectly suited to a tented winter wedding.
Rain Farm Game and Lodge
This gorgeous Kwazulu Natal wedding venue has its own chapel with stunning views of the farm. The farm offers a picture perfect backdrop for any nuptial celebration with game drives, a dam and the romantic horse drawn carriage as some of the attractions available. While guests dine in the boma, Rain Farm affords the perfect location for a tented dance floor and reception area.

With the call of the fish eagle by day and jackal by night you would be forgiven for thinking you were miles away from anywhere.
