How to choose your wedding venue

Shortly after a couple gets engaged, they receive many well wishes and, inevitably, requests for details of the wedding.  When? Where?  Those questions are not always as easy to answer as a couple would like them to be. 

A crisp winter wedding at Uitsig

Ruan and Marion were married at Uitsig next to the dam at the end of June this year. When they asked to have their ceremony next to the dam, we were apprehensive. While our picnic spot next to the dam is idyllic and very popular with couples-to-be, it is not the warmest spot in the middle of ...

A beautiful showcase of our Garden Route wedding venue

Ruan and Rouxlé got married at Uitsig in March this year. We loved how dynamically they used our wedding venue for each moment of their special day - from the couple photos at the dam and along the winding farm roads to the canapes under the pin oak tree, and the decor of the hall and the lawn outside. Everything sparkled with fairy lights and love. 

The history of Uitsig’s “blikkerkie”

As a wedding venue on the Garden Route, Uitsig has always been blessed with breathtaking views and locations for wedding ceremonies. Couples would get married under the towering 35-year-old pin oak tree, or perhaps in a beautiful white tent, if the weather threatened.

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. Different couples have used them in such unique ways for their weddings, especially the pin oak tree that towers above an area made cosy with natural seating.

Small, intimate weddings vs large celebrations

A lot of the decisions you make when planning your wedding hinge on the question: how many people do we want to invite?

Here’s what we love about each option:

1000 rose trees welcome you to Uitsig

As you enter the gates of Uitsig, clusters of pure white, semi-double blooms welcome you. You’re greeted by 200 Iceberg roses, cows grazing in the meadows, and the majesty of the Outeniqua mountains in the background. Watching guests arrive, we often see them stop, look around, and exhale – we know what they’re feeling. It’s a little bit like walking into a picture book.

The most romantic wedding video

One of the things we love most about wedding videos is that they transport you back to moments in time, so you're able to relive some of the happiest hours of your life. EONMEDIA  created the most gorgeous video of a recent wedding at Uitsig. We love how it captures the essence of the day, and shows off the natural beauty of our venue. We couldn't describe it better than their own write up: "Filmed at the wonderfully romantic wedding venue, Uitsig in George.  Ian & Wilmé made their promises with friends and family playing witness to their beautiful union.  This wedding had exceptional attention to detail and we could tell that their ...

A picnic spot transformed into a picture-perfect ceremony venue

Uitsig, true to its name, is full of so many beautiful viewpoints that it’s always such a pleasure to show couples the venue and help them choose where they would like to say, “I do.” When Ian and Wilme experienced the tranquility next to our dam, heard the birdlife in the trees and took in the backdrop of the Outeniquas, they knew that this was the spot where they wanted to become Mr and Mrs Chamberlain.
