Uitsig Venue, a place of celebration

Uitsig Venue represents what our family farm has always been - a place of love, of people and of beauty. For that reason we have been fortunate, for several years, to share this special space with our guests.  It truly has become place of celebration! Celebration of relationships, birthdays and lives combined. Our garden is the foundation of our farm.  It is the physical manifestation of what we believe. Through care, attention and love the garden grows stronger, yet more beautiful. Like the vows that are sworn here.

A beautiful showcase of our Garden Route wedding venue

Ruan and Rouxlé got married at Uitsig in March this year.

Everything sparkled with fairy lights and love.

Uitsig’s beautiful and versatile gardens

The beautiful gardens at Uitsig are one of our favourite things about the venue – not just because of their prettiness and the way they change with the seasons, but because they are so versatile.

Getting ready to say “I do” at Uitsig

Some of our favourite photos from weddings – especially those shot at Uitsig – are of the bride and groom getting ready with their bridal parties. You can just feel the sense of anticipation, the butterflies…   When we meet couples for the first time when they come to look at our venue, one of the things they often remark on is how much they like the fact that both the bride and the groom can get ready at the venue itself – either in the guesthouse or the honeymoon suite.
