Abingdon Wine Estate (Lions River)

This well-known wine farm situated in the Midlands only takes a few select weddings each year, catering to a maximum of 72 guests with each wedding being completely unique. This is the perfect spot if you’re wanting a small, daytime wedding with a relaxed and charming feel. You can be sure to experience all of the locally produced Abingdon wines as well as a menu of fresh, locally sourced cuisine. With the venue being so exclusive, you’ll need to book well in advance in order to secure this idyllic spot.

Attikos (Ballito)

If you’re wanting a small wedding that focuses on serving delicious Greek food and a beautiful ambiance, Attikos is the perfect venue. They can host intimate weddings of 20 to 30 people and will do all the catering for you, serving up what they’re known for – authentic Greek cuisine packed with flavour. The restaurant is beautifully designed and has a breathtaking aesthetic, so there’s not much need for décor, but if you do want to personalise it a little, you’ll need to source that from an external supplier. This is the perfect spot for a small, more laid-back wedding with family and close friends.
