Your wedding day is one of the happiest days of your life and you are entitled have it at the perfect wedding venue in Hartbeespoortdam, but how are you going to find it? If you are planning on getting married in this area, you will have a myriad of great wedding venues to choose from. Here are some tips on how to narrow down your choices:

  • Location: Hartbeespoortdam is a popular area for wedding venues because you can get out into the countryside without all your friends and family having to pay for expensive flights to get there. Choose a venue that has good transport links to Pretoria, Johannesburg and Sandton so that they can get there easily by car.
  • Chapel/wedding license: In South Africa, there are certain pre-requisites when getting married outside a church (or in a magistrate’s court). If you are planning on getting married at the venue (as opposed to simply having your reception at the venue), make sure they have a chapel and a wedding license before you book your dates.
  • Photo opportunities: Your wedding pictures will be one of the most important considerations of your big day. These photos will be in a wedding album (or displayed on your walls) for many years. Make sure the venue has beautiful landscaped grounds and pretty gardens where you will be able to take wedding pictures.
  • Costs: The wedding venue is usually one of the major expenses of a wedding. If you’ve already got your heart set on a wedding venue (but find it a bit pricey), ask if they have special prices for getting married during the winter months or on weekdays.
  • Accommodation: Unless all your friends and family are from Gauteng, you will probably want to offer them some form of accommodation at the venue. Guests who are travelling to the wedding venue for your big day should be able to book a room for the night so they can relax and enjoy the special occasion without worrying about driving.
