Why winter in the countryside is the perfect time for a wedding!

While wedding season in the Highveld is typically in spring and summer, autumn and winter are slowly catching up in popularity – and it’s not difficult to see why! Here are some wedding planning tips from a beautiful countryside wedding venue near Pretoria.

  • The great weather: Weather is often the greatest concern for any couple, but the Highveld has you covered with it’s warm, clear sunny days and star-filled nights. While it might get a little cold in the early morning and late evening, day time weddings are the perfect occasion where you’ll feel comfortable in almost any wedding dress – and indoor receptions can be easily heated to keep all your guests warm and having fun.
  • The scenery: Winter landscapes in this region are dramatic and beautiful, the perfect backdrop for your photos. With a clear, bright blue sky stretching down to pale, golden grasslands, your photographer will have the ideal background to capture your special day.
  • The cost: Wedding costs can get out of control easily, and the best way to bring it back on budget is through the venue. Unfortunately, the best venues cost the most – but not in winter! During the off-season, you can get great discounts and specials that allow you to get the wedding venue you love at the budget you can afford – and that means more to spend on your dress or honeymoon!
  • The themes: Winter time themes are the essence of romance, so having your wedding at this time of year gives you the chance to do something really different. Whether you want a glittering winter wonderland or the romance of roaring fires, winter is the perfect time of year to indulge in these elegant themes.
