Perdekraal Wedding Venue

The perfect mix of luxury and rustic farm beauty.

TopVendor Member & Top Country Wedding Venue 2018 Participant

Perdekraal Venue is tucked away in the hills of the Mpumalanga Highveld, just a five minute drive from Ermelo. Perdekraal is original in its old fashioned yet modern style; certainly not your typical Venue. It is the most romantic and exclusive setting for a truly memorable, dream wedding. The natural environment offers a dream setting for any outdoor ceremony.

If you want to say I do in a unique setting we have three exotic scenarios to choose from: 1. A Country style garden ceremony with serene, green, park-like area complete with a flawless lawn, giant trees, a fish pond and swimming pool. Also enjoying the peaceful garden are the turkeys, peacocks, and guinea fowls. 2. If you are in the mood for something magical we also offer a Ceremony on top of a rocky mountain. The trees form a breathtaking tunnel which leads you to a magnificent opening surrounded by massive rocks and beautiful trees.

The sunset will be the perfect backdrop for views of grasslands, horses and corn fields. It is a true hidden gem! 3. The third choice is at the foot of a rocky hill between the gigantic Blue Gum Trees surrounded by the old hanging bark, with views of sunflowers, cornfields and our lovely dam. Horses and multi colored Nguni Cattle can be seen roaming throughout the farm. The bridal couple can even choose where they would like them to be, whether it is 150 horses running at a special moment or just grazing in the background.

The Venue also has horse carriages and old school donkey carts; they can even be used to transport your guests from the parking area to the ceremony area. Pony rides for the children are also available. The venue itself comprises an age-old milk shed that has been transformed into an exquisite reception hall. Adjacent to the main venue there is a more intimate living room for smaller events, buffet area or to serve as a sitting room for those whose legs need a rest from all the dancing. Most of the structure has been left untouched, leaving intact that special old-world feeling.

It took almost 100 years for these walls to age into the majestic artwork it is today. The dining room accommodates anything from just a few guests to two hundred, filled with romance and the most exquisite Afro-French Baroque décor. Antique Wooden Tables each piece is unique with its own history or if you rather prefer we also offer tables and two choices of tablecloths, replica of antique Victorian cutlery, a variety of table décor, Persian carpets, wooden easels, a range of chargers and rustic curly iron trees are just a few things that Perdekraal has to offer.

Our servers are dressed formally in black and white with bow ties. The bar area has a cigar lounge feel, that's complemented by dark polished wood and leather couches. Comfortable lounge areas can be found throughout the establishment. Overlooking the swimming pool and our fairytale garden is the 100 year old sandstone school that was converted into two beautiful suites. Perdekraal also has two luxurious chalets and a spacious family room. All suites and chalets come fully equipped with a fridge, tea and coffee facilities as well as a braai area. The Venue is very close to town and once a booking has been made you will receive a list of recommended accommodation and trusted suppliers. The dining experience is exceptional and the Venue offers multiple courses.

The hors d’oeuvre area is a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. It includes a complete setup of beautiful tables with different dimensions dripping with food and décor. Outside sitting areas complete with garden chairs, benches and cocktail tables. Options such as our authentic Karoo hors d’oeuvre selection consist of ‘Skilpadjies’, Sheep tail and Pâtés, served with a selection of breads, cheeses and homemade preserves. Our service options include a Silver Dome Plated Service or a delicious Buffet with a range of food to select from. Options such as a truly South African Style Lamb on the Spit, Fillet or even Oxtail are available. There's nothing better than classic dessert. Our homemade desserts will transport you back in time to your grandmother's kitchen.

The Chef might even surprise you with some delicious petits fours (sweet treats) served at the coffee and tea table. Perdekraal is available for exclusive use. To provide the best service possible, only one wedding per weekend is accepted. There is no other Venue like it. It is the perfect location for your dream celebration! “Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.” ~ Anonymous
