Rosemary Hill Weddings
Rosemary Hill is a beautiful farm just east of Pretoria. We have been farming organically and bio-dynamically since 1978 and we are one of the biggest producers of Rosemary oil in South Africa. In addition to the farming, we have 33km of trails that meander through the farm. Our objective is to provide an opportunity for all your friends and family to share a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of city life. With our extensive accommodation, everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the farm-life, fresh organic food and all the activities on offer for example renting a mountainbike or going for treetop adventures/ ziplining down in the forest.
What sets us apart from other wedding venues is that
- We only host one wedding per weekend!
- You get two full days for set up and décor – no last minute rushing that causes unnecessary stress.
- We include countless décor options for you to choose from, just come and browse through our décor warehouse to pick and choose what you would like to use.
- Our dedicated and passionate staff spend hours making your beautiful confetti and flower carpet by hand! They use seasonal fresh and dried flowers and herbs from the farm.
- We include a beautiful Suite or Cottage for your convenience the night before, as well as the night of the wedding.
Each wedding is set up from scratch using the unique facilities that we have available:
The Barn: This beautiful wooden structure was built in the late 80’s to house an entrepeneurs market. It was later enclosed and used as a store on the farm. Today we use it to seat up to 250 guests for a wedding ceremony, or it can seat up to 120 guests for a wedding reception.
The Pavilion: Located at the centre of our formal garden, this open sided structure provides 360-degree views of the beautiful maze which is home to over 2000 plants. It is a very romantic setting for the wedding ceremony or canapes.
The Greenhouse: This working plant home is such a magical space in which we host our winter weddings. It can seat up to 300 guests for ceremonies, but if you have a smaller wedding we simply fill the space up with rows of plants.
The Packhouse: Our old vegetable processing facility is very spacious with high ceilings and can be used for wedding receptions of up to 300 guests.
The Cottage: Our charming free-standing thatch cottage has been beautifully renovated into a tranquil space. It has a King-size sleigh bed, en-suite bathroom with a shower and free-standing bath. It has a spacious separate lounge, DsTV and bar fridge. The outside patio is surrounded by beautiful trees, abundant birdlife and breathtaking sunset views. The cottage sleeps 2.
The Guesthouse: In addition to the cottage, the building next door used to be old classrooms dating back to the 80’s. It has been converted into 6 stunning contemporary rooms that can sleep 10 guests. The last room is a luxurious Suite with a King-size Four poster bed and cosy fireplace. It also boasts two en-suite bathrooms with showers and a free-standing bath overlooking a private garden. The separate lounge and undercover patio area makes this our biggest room – ideal for the Bride and her entourage to get ready in. Perfect as a Honeymoon Suite.
The Farmhouse: This fabulous holiday home is ideal for families and groups of friends looking to enjoy a break-away – a spacious home away from home. It is located 800m down the road from the Guesthouse and main coffee shop, has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 of which are en-suite), a fully equipped kitchen, braai facilities, games room, 3 fireplaces, lounge and a large garden from which you can soak up fabulous views of the grassland. The farmhouse can sleep up to 10 guests.
Amenities in all our accommodation include natural shampoo, shower gel and body lotion made with essential oils from our farm, tissues, towels, Rosemary Hill Signature Room Spray, insect repellent, hairdryer, fan/ heater, USB charging point, fresh flowers, rusks and cookies made with love in our kitchen, spring water, a lovely selection of tea, freshly ground coffee with plungers and a chocolate on your pillow when you return from the wedding.
A wedding at Rosemary Hill is an opportunity for everyone to reconnect in a relaxed environment and find space to breath before the big I-Do’s.
