What's your venue vibe?

CASALINGA - This venue has it all. It offers a number of wonderful settings for a ceremony: chapel garden, banana tree backdrop, lemon orchard, veggie patch, take your pick!  They also offer a superior dining experience, summer and winter, and have on-site accommodation. Win, win and WIN!

GROUND: There IS a vineyard in Jozi!  Yes there is!  And it offers a lovely year round photo backdrop.  This property also has an attractive dappled wattle forest and a more remote veld setting. The lux picnics and harvest table experiences offered on site will cap off your wedding day beautifully.  This venue only takes weekday bookings for micro weddings during high season.  We can try our luck for a weekend if your date is imminent. As a superior venue, Ground attracts a financial surcharge, but is well worth it!

LEWIS FAMILY FARM - LFF is a working farm in Centurion.  Our ceremony set ups are willow and water vibe, or farm field and big tree vibe.  We adore both.  Oh.  And did we mention that they have alpacas.  Alpacas!

TOADBURY HALL: Their large ponds and manicured lawns are attractive year round. While the afternoon away with a picnic basket, or enjoy a reception meal in the hotel's a la carte restaurant.  This venue also offers lovely overnight accommodation.  Read more about it here.

INDUSTRIAL GARDEN: Victoria Yards is a re-developed inner city space that is home to a myriad of creative workshops.  Its industrial vibe is perfectly offset by lawned courtyards and the rambling veggie garden that borders each pathway.  This is an uber cool venue for an uber cool urban couple keen to enjoy city vibes on their wedding day.  There is a fab little bar on site, and it's ideal if you'd like to move on to a suburban restaurant after your ceremony.

CITY STREET: For those looking for a more gritty city experience with incredible authentic urban photo ops, look no further than our pop-up ceremony site at the entrance to the Rand Club in Marshalltown.  Rand Club offers catering in-house.  Enjoy some city wedding inspiration by clicking here.  And rest assured, the area is not toooo gritty!  It's secure and safe.

THE BARN at Taroko Farm is a a stunning heritage building with wide veranda, ample lawn, gardens and river frontage.  They are located within the Modderfontein Nature Reserve just outside Sandton. We Do, Weddings offers catering and table decor at this venue.  This is a private venue and attracts a financial surcharge.

BEECHWOOD GARDENS: This classic Hyde Park garden boasts four acres of lush beauty featuring an abundant rose garden, extensive pond, traditional colonnade and expansive raised vegetable garden. We Do, Weddings offers catering and table decor at this venue.  Being central to suburbia it is also the ideal venue from which to enjoy a post wedding city dinner or hotel stay.  As a superior venue, Beechwood attracts a financial surcharge and is best value if you plan a reception on site too.

FIELD BERRY FARM - Available Jan-April during berry season only.  This venue is super-awesome.  Spacious and unique, and only 25 mins from downtown Jozi, we love it's authentic farm vibes and opportunities for laid back dining.

What is the tone of your ceremony?

Micro weddings and elopements by their nature are ceremony focused.

And we are very focussed on getting you married in a way that works for you.  This means you have lots, and lots of say in the tone you'd like to set. You steer the ship with regards to your ceremony being secular or religious, formal or fun.

We have both secular and Christian officiants on our team, and you will have the opportunity to connect with your marriage officer prior to your tiny big day.
