I attended a wedding at The Plantation and everything was spot on. From the chapel to the reception's activities to the food and decor, everything was done by the venue's staff to ease the work done by the bridal couple. The food courses were extremely tasty and everyone's dietary requirements were catered for. We chose to stay over in one...

The Plantation is truly a wonderful, beautiful and restful place. It was such a breath of fresh air away from Johannesburg. I cannot fault anything! It exceeded my expectations even though I had a really small wedding. The forests, the horse Destiny, the food, the chapel, the vintage motorbike and horse and carriage were all amazing.

Had such a great time at the plantation. Rooms were big and spacious and the Morning breakfast was worth the lie in. Peaceful and Quiet during the evenings and mornings. Well situated to the airport and ease of access to main roads.

My family and I attended Matt and Lauren Pizzey's wedding at the Plantation and thought the venue was absolutely fantastic. The chapel was beautiful and lent itself perfectly to the flowers selected. The chapel also allowed maximum light to enter the room whilst covering the room. The main reception building and associated rooms were also beautiful with adequate room for...
