Our Bridal suite is hidden in the mountain and offers a relaxing and beautiful space for our brides to take in every feeling that is the start of the rest of their lives. The “man-cave” is the perfect spot for our grooms to prepare themselves for the moment when they will watch their bride take her walk down the aisle. Our secret pathways and viewpoints in the mountain provide your guests with adventure and escapism, they might even be lucky and catch sight of our fluffy chickens! The SG honeymoon suite is situated in the most historic building on the premises that was built in 1904 and part of the family home. This suite is not only luxurious but offers views of the gardens that are synonymous with a romantic vacation.

Shepstone was a family home for so many years where many special memories were created, now we are welcoming you to our family and so look forward to creating more unforgettable memories with you!

Shepstone is in a league of its own. It’s the most magical, enchanting and beautiful venue! The attention to detail is outstanding and I can’t tell you how amazing their staff are! They’re helpful and friendly. We felt like royalty on our special day and through the whole wedding planning process. I recommend Shepstone to all my brides who don’t already have a venue. – Melissa Alexia Vrachionidis

Choosing a Johannesburg Wedding Venue

This is probably your very first step on your wedding planning journey! Booking a venue 12 to 9 months before your wedding means your search will have to start even before that. Your venue will take a large portion of your budget, so this might be an unnerving choice to make. 

Johannesburg is South Africa’s biggest city and capital of Gauteng province – a hub of activity and a nightlife that never sleeps! It boasts with a selection of urban and country style venues include luxurious boutique hotels to elegant country houses, rustic farmhouse settings and large five star hotels.

Once you have chosen a breathtaking venue it will be much easier to turn it into your envisioned perfect day. But there will be restrictions that will nudge your decision towards the right place.

What is the capacity of the venue?
Are they available on your preferred date?
How far would your guests need to travel?
Is there accommodation nearby?
Is there a Plan B in case of cold/rainy weather?

Most venues offer different wedding packages so keep an eye out for them to see what is included. Make sure you understand the fine print and the after hour charges. Open and clear communication between you and the venue management team is crucial to ensure both parties understand requirements and preferences.

We wish you all the best with your venue search and we hope you find your dream venue in our list!
