We attended Dwarsberg Wedding Venue’s second open day for this year on 1 September 2019 and once again, the Dwarsberg team did not disappoint.
With this open day, they offered two different time slots where the manager walked through with each group showcasing their different ceremony and reception options as well as their on-site accommodation.
We booked for the 13:00 walk through and Marelize Watt-Hayes, the manager, warmly greeted us as we walked into the venue. Their décor, styled by Best Events, offered bridal couples a few different table styling options and we had a chance to look around the main venue hall while enjoying their mouth-watering pre-appetizers.
Once everyone for the 13:00 tour had arrived and was ready, Marelize took us through both their outdoor ceremony sites. Explaining their different set-up options, she described what bridal couples could expect in each season when it came to weather as well as shading. It was wonderful to see two ceremony sites that could be used in such versatile ways and how one could offer pre-drinks and welcome guests with their breath-taking mountains on their lawns next to the river.
They also offer in season apple or pear picking, which bridal couples can use to entertain their guest between ceremony and reception. Which should give wedding photographers more time to capture stunning images with the natural Dwarsberg beauty as a backdrop.
We then continued around to the on-site accommodation, they have four rustic cottages all with a historic story around when or why they were build and then they have just completed three new units, available from the 4th of October 2019.
This offers the both bride and groom dressing accommodation without the chance of accidently glimpsing one another.
We completed the four back at the reception area on their recently extended outside dance floor, which can be tended or left open to enjoy the night sky as you and your guest dance the night away.
To see more about Dwarsberg Wedding Venue’s, watch our short video or attend their next open day on 5 October 2019. Situated only 106km from Cape Town just past Rawsonville in the Breede Valley area, it is a delight to drive out and the day will not disappoint!
