Choosing a wedding venue

We’ve had some glorious small weddings and their receptions at African Relish over the years. Before the bridal couple considers a venue, exploring the concept of a destination wedding is an important consideration.  Clearly distance becomes an asset and a challenge. 

You will need to visit the venue before hand to be sure it is both right for you and that the people to whom you are entrusting the most important day of your life are empathetic to want you need to achieve.    You will need to consider if your guests can travel and what accommodation is available and at what cost.  On the considerable upside there is a natural extension to the festivities as family and friends begin to gather days before the main event.  There is extra time to be with people who have travelled from abroad for the occasion, braais to be enjoyed and stories of the road trip to be told.

In Prince Albert the towns people tend to get involved with various supplies and are available to fulfill last minute requests.  The staff get caught up in the festivities of the preparation and become part of the experience.  The owners of African Relish have had the pleasure of holding two of their 5 children’s weddings in Prince Albert and occasions are memorable for the holistic experience of being together in this small town for a concentrate period of time.  This has also been the experience of many of the couples who have taken their vows at our venue in the Great Karoo.  We can use this experience to help you plan in an environment where there are no rules and there is a willingness to help make your wedding all you want it to be. Call us for more info.

See you in the kitchen.
