Set in tranquil garden surroundings on the beautiful dolphin coast, our venue offers you a perfect mixture of old world charm with new age style!
The perfect setting for your most important day, with traditional garden gazebo, classic new reception hall, mouth-watering cuisine and warm, family hospitality!
Great atmosphere, special friends, lovely food, all-night dancing and fond memories that will last a lifetime!
If it’s a garden wedding you are looking for, then look no further!
You can almost feel the history of our venue as you walk through spectacular columns of 80-year-old Norfolk Pines. By day these proud, old trees tower 100 feet above an enchanted garden, ringing with bird life! By night these trees form a dramatic backdrop to an arena filled with strategically placed garden lights…a true fairy garden!
Right here we have established a classic garden gazebo, exclusively for wedding services. From the gazebo, a paved path carves its way through the garden leading you into our professionally draped reception hall capable of seating up to 300 people, and a stunning sculpted Koi pond, complete with waterfall and bridge! Our clever architecture and innovative draping allow us the advantage of catering for both large and small weddings alike.
Our guests are captivated by their closeness to nature! When the halls blinds are raised, they are totally encapsulated by a garden, which is not only rich and colourful by day, but also even more spectacular at night!
The management team has, collectively, 25 years of catering experience under our belts. A fully personalised function with the highest degree of quality is our main aim. We endeavour to cater to the specific requirements of the bridal party and will evolve to suit your needs.
Bar prices are extremely reasonable, and the service staff very eager to meet your every need.
Situated just 2 minutes from Ballito (30 mins from Durban), we are ideally situated for guests to attend our venue and then breeze off to their relaxed weekend getaway. Choose from a wide range of nearby accommodation, at lovely B&B’s, hotels or self-catering cottages.
“We look forward to ensuring that the memories of your special event will remain with you forever!”
So why not arrange a meeting and visit Braeside to plan your function of a lifetime!
