Wedding Venue

Rosemary Hill’s distinctive attention to detail provide a stylish event in farm-style surroundings. A wedding here presents a very unique blend of rustic, combined with elegance – tailored to reflect the bride and groom’s personal style. Each wedding is customised by our very talented and artistic wedding coordinators, supported by a very experienced staff compliment who are dedicated to turn a bride’s dream into reality.

What sets us apart from many other wedding venues is that the bridal couple has access to the venue 2 entire days prior to the wedding to finalise their décor – providing enough time to ensure everything is perfect! We only host one wedding per weekend, and at the most, two per week, thereby ensuring that every bit of our effort goes into making your day unforgettable.

Ranked no 2 in the Top 10 Pretoria Wedding venues, Rosemary Hill is a firm favourite with some of the best photographers (Mighty Fine, Ginger ale, Sagely Photography, Laura Leigh, Marinda May, JC Click, Koringkriek Photography) because of the unique photo and video opportunities that the farm provide. The old ruins, lavender and rosemary fields, tree-lined lanes, dams, bridges and our Nguni cows form beautiful natural backdrops to your photographs.

The finest farm-style dinner, consisting of a menu chosen by the couple, is prepared in our kitchens and served on time by our staff. Bridal couples are invited to food tasting evenings well in advance of their big day to ensure that each dish served is to their taste and satisfaction.

Venues available for your wedding:

The ceremony can be held in the Pavilion at the centre of the beautiful maze (a formal garden with over 2km of pathways and over 3000 fragrant herbs, beautiful roses, shrubs and trees where guests can take a stroll before the ceremony). This is the only one of its kind in South Africa! During the cooler months, your ceremony can be conducted in the Green House (a plant nursery covered with green shade cloth)– a unique experience indeed!

For the reception, we offer several choices:

Our authentic wooden barn that was originally built as a storeroom over thirty years ago, can seat up to 130 guests and has 8 shutters that open up on the sides, providing a refreshing breeze in the heat of the summer nights, giving the experience of fresh air throughout the night and with a view of the bonfire. The room allows for flexible layout to weddings of all styles and sizes. If you have more than 130 wedding guests, the Packhouse is available and can seat up to 300 guests. The Packhouse was originally used for packing our organic veggies grown on the farm for distribution to various outlets.

We host weddings from 80 – 300 guests.

Viewing the venue:

Please note that we do not allow any wedding bookings before you have been for a viewing so we can meet you and show you the facilities. The best time is on a Saturday morning while we are setting up for a wedding. Viewings strictly by appointment only.
