River Place Weddings
While the sense of peace at River Place makes you feel as if you’re far removed from the city, the venue is extremely accessible and is close to the major business centers of Gauteng. We’re situated approximately 15km from Fourways, 25km from Sandton CBD and about 15km from Centurion. The nearby national highway allows convenient access – tarred and paved all the way to our front door.
If the sweeping views down the river over the landscaped indigenous gardens and across the koppies rolling off into the distance are the soul of this 16-hectare property, then the Hennops River, which flows through River Place is its heart. Sometimes lively and in full flow, at other times languid and tranquil, the many moods of the river reflect the diversity of the venue.
