Given the mad hustle and bustle of city life, most Johannesburg or Pretoria city dwellers are keen to escape to the country every so often and enjoy nature, peace and tranquility at its finest. Country wedding venues as well as country venues for end of year functions and parties have become popular over the years as hosts encourage their guests to enjoy the peace and respite of country life, forget their day to day routines and immerse themselves in a different world for a few hours.
Country wedding venues are therefore in hot demand as bridal couples traverse the countryside in search of the perfect country wedding venue.
Here are a few more reasons why a country wedding venue is the right choice:
1. Feeling the Beauty
Not only is a country wedding venue peaceful but it also provides that natural, beautiful backdrop for the perfect wedding photos. Sunsets, rolling hills, forests and streams can all be part of your wedding photos if you choose a country wedding venue.
2. So far yet so close
If you choose a country wedding venue in places such as Parys, Muldersdrift and Cullinan, you have the benefits of being in the country but also less than 2 hours drive from the main city centres of Johannesburg and Pretoria. This means that getting to and from your wedding for your guests is no hassle at all. They also won’t have the extra expense of accommodation or flights.
3. Space, space and more space
One thing a country wedding venue is definitely not short on is space. You will not need to worry about space for parking or space for kiddies to run around outside in. So if your wedding is a family affair and you’re inviting children, a country wedding venue is a great choice.
4. So many options
Although we mentioned above that the proximity of country wedding venues to the city allow for ease of access for guests, they also provide the option of a weekend getaway. Should your guests wish to spend a few nights out of the city they can easily do so as most country wedding venues offer accommodation onsite. That is the great thing about country venues, your guests have the option of a day trip or a holiday.
5. Nature at its best
Trickling streams, lush forests, fields of flowers and glowing sunsets. Country wedding venues really do offer the possibility of absolutely perfect wedding memories. Nature really is the perfect backdrop for photos and saying your vows. Could you think of anything more beautiful?
These are all the reasons why we love country wedding venues.
