Glasshouse wedding venues ensure that you get the best of the outdoors while you have the comforts of being indoors. South Africa has some incredible wedding venues, particularly those on vineyards. However, the country boasts some stunning glasshouse venues too.
Here are four of our favourites:
Where: Caledon, in the Overberg Western Cape. About 113kms east of Cape Town’s city centre.
This venue makes you feel as though you’re one with nature. The glasshouse is nestled between oak trees and wattle forests. From inside the venue you’ll hear the calming sounds of birds chirping from the trees and water running through a stream nearby. A perfect location to ensure a relaxed and classy wedding day.
Accommodating 140 guests, and offering both indoor and outdoor facilities, there is not much more you could ask for of this venue.
Where: 327 Pine Ave, Ferndale, Randburg, 2194
This venue is perfect for a smaller, more intimate wedding. The roofed glasshouse conservatory was completed in February of this year, which means the venue is brand new and hardly been used! So you’ll be one of the first to have your wedding there.
The lush gardens which surround the venue are renowned and make for the most tranquil backdrop you could ever imagine.
Where: Suid-Agter-Paarl Rd, 7624
The roof may not be glass, but the glass walls allow for more than enough light to enter the venue. Situated on a country estate, the venue gives you class, nature, culture and more.
Belair Pavilion is surrounded by several wine estates, providing you with an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Positioned in the exquisite garden, the venue is covered in evergreen star jasmine. The view of the mountains from the garden ensures that you have a stunning backdrop for your nuptials.
Where: Klein Kastaiing, Happy Valley Road, Franschhoek, South Africa, Franschhoek, Cape Town, 7691
This award-winning venue is set up between vineyards and oak trees and is on the bank of he Kastaiing River. The Conservatory floods with light and allows guests to enjoy the picturesque views of Franschhoek, as they sip their drinks and chat in the venue.
