Weddings at The Homestead

The Homestead is a unique, affordable and charming Country Wedding venue, with a warm family atmosphere, located in the foothills of the Northern Drakensberg.

Couples can choose from our set menus or have a menu designed for them. The venue is draped in white or in the colour of their choice and adorned with fairy lights which sets the ambience and mood for their very Special Wedding day.

A professional qualified wedding planner is available to help you plan your special day.


Our big day was held at the Homestead and it was a dream come true!

The Homestead has a friendly, laid-back, country, home away from home atmosphere with the owners Phil and Bernice being very accommodating. Our ceremony was held under the beautifully decorated, garden bandstand followed by the reception held in the elegantly decorated main dining hall on the property. The Homestead prepared an elaborate buffet style 3 coarse meal that was great value for money. Our photographs were taken in the wonderful garden and surrounding areas, with a neighbor offering her horse to us for the photographs! Our guests booked into units available on the property and neighboring properties, creating a comfortable, relaxed environment for our special day. We strongly recommend the Homestead as a venue of choice!
