The Edwardian Calderwood Hall Manor is the ideal backdrop for your wedding. Our inviting Jardine Function Centre seats 250 guests comfortably whilst still allowing for a dance floor. Two large five metre stack-back doors lead onto a walkway alongside the koi pond. Another set of stack-back doors lead off the venue onto a large outdoor verandah area overlooking the beautiful view of the mountains and surrounding forests. The mock Victorian sash windows, tastefully decorated walls, a Victorian Fireplace and three large oversized shabby-chic styled chandeliers add to the overall ambience of the room.
Our pretty and tranquil thatched stained glass chapel seats 150 guests. As an alternative to the chapel, you can use the forest next to the dam or even the arbour in the front garden.
Situated in the front garden amongst the trees overlooking the dam is our Pavilion. The large sliding doors opening the verandah, fire pit and a lovely braai facility give the room an indoor / outdoor feel designed to host guests during Cocktail Hour or as an alternative to the chapel should the weather be inclement for a garden ceremony. The casual lounge area is great for guests to relax in on Friday and Saturday or for the pre-wedding Braai Dinner. Its even open for those late-nighters who want to move over after the Jardine Centre has closed to warm up around the fire pit. As it has a full bathroom, it can be used for the Groom and Groomsmen to get ready in.
Our accommodation has been graded as AA Highly Recommended and we can sleep up to 68 guests on the estate. Our Manor House has five oversized luxury en-suite bedrooms, all exquisitely themed for guests to enjoy the unique character of each. Set in our beautiful gardens are a further 23 en-suite garden rooms, suitable for larger groups and family getaways.
As Calderwood Hall is becoming an increasingly popular wedding venue in the KwaZuluNatal midlands, we are booked up well in advance so have introduced a special hire fee for weddings that are booked during the winter months. Please see our Bridal Guide for the current rates.
