Explore the best wedding venues in Robertson and Montagu, South Africa. Here is our selection of the top wedding venues, recommended by wedding professionals and real couples.
At the end of a country road, set high in a fynbos valley surrounded by mountains on 3 sides, you will find the idyllic Pat Busch Mountain Reserve. This private nature reserve lies just beyond Robertson in the Cape Winelands, less than 2 hours scenic drive from Cape Town, and is the perfect blank canvas, a weekend destination wedding venue in the mountains.
We offer onsite accommodation sleeping 60+ guests comfortably, but up to 100 guests if every bed is occupied and all accommodation is within walking distance to the venues. Wedding couples will enjoy the exclusivity of the reserve with very few limitations on their wedding weekend. Our wedding package includes all onsite accommodation, furniture, décor, crockery, cutlery, glassware & more. Our Reserve can accommodate up to 100 overnight guests if every bed is occupied, and with an additional bell tent glamping option we can accommodate more, alternatively, there are nearby establishments for the overflow. Weddings of up to 120 pax can be hosted without the need to hire any additional equipment, but much larger events can also be hosted at our unique natural venue by hiring in additional equipment.
There are numerous ceremony areas from which to choose ranging from the jetty overlooking the mountain dam, to a poplar forest with a stream, a poolside setting or a lush meadow with mountain views, or a firm favourite is beneath the ancient oak tree. Any venue or a combination can be used for the ceremony, pre-drinks and the reception. Couples have the freedom to not only arrange a pre-wedding informal ‘Meet & Greet’ the night before the wedding, (which is the perfect opportunity to catch up with family & friends), but also an informal Farewell breakfast the day after the wedding. Here the newlyweds have a chance to say final thank yous & goodbyes to their wedding guests, expressing gratefulness for making lifelong wedding memories together.
Wow, what a venue! The surroundings are absolutely unreal with 10 stylish and comfortable Africamp Boutique glamping ‘tents’, lovely smaller cottages, and a big farmhouse all nestled in the heart of the mountains, so close it feels as if you can touch them. The Pat Busch team organised the set up/break down and accommodated all my (some unusual) requests perfectly. Other benefits of using Pat Busch as a wedding venue: No curfew (we partied into the very early hours), being able to bring in external suppliers to create exactly what you want and manage costs better, and a recommended list of tried-and-tested suppliers who are used to doing weddings there and can offer invaluable advice/guidance. We truly had the most magical weekend and were so proud to show our UK guests the best of SA. – Dianne Lesche
