Everything You Need And More...

Everything You Need And More...

Calderwood Hall Guest House is the perfect setting for a country wedding. Being on an estate allows your event to flow from indoors to outdoors with ease. The Edwardian Calderwood Hall Manor is surrounded by beautiful gardens with lovely walkways, ornamental fountains, a dam and forest. Her double-storey elegance, reception areas, and wide sweeping staircase create such presence, yet she is also welcoming and warm.

You can truly relax and enjoy your wedding in the calm ambience of Calderwood Hall, she’s everything you need and more.

Jardine Function Centre

cw jardine new

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 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 venue allows for personal styles to be reflected in the reception. You will not be limited by what we can do, but rather what you want to make of this special day. You may want something simple and stylish, or a wedding with no expense spared. In these modern times, there is no right or wrong! So whether or not you stick to tradition or personalise your wedding to suit the occasion, it’s all just a matter of choice. We are here to advise and help make it a memorable day for you, your family and your friends.

Our
Chapel

The pretty and tranquil thatched stained glass chapel can seat 150 guests on either side of the aisle. With its large paned window in the altar area, the chapel allows the backdrop of the midlands to shine through. It is multidenominational and we welcome weddings from all cultural groups.

Outdoor Weddings

For those who’ve always dreamed of having an outdoor ceremony, there is a forest alongside the dam which allows the bride to walk down to the altar through an avenue of trees with guests comfortably seated on Wimbledon chairs on either side of the aisle.

We also have the jasmine-covered arbour in our front garden which allows for guests to be seated on the grassed lawn with the Manor House behind them. Umbrellas can be arranged to create shade and add atmosphere.

The
Pavilion

The Pavilion is situated in the front garden amongst the trees overlooking the dam yet not obscuring the view of the majestic Manor House. It has a large deck area, fire pit and a braai facility. The large sliding doors give the room an indoor/outdoor feel. It is ideal to host guests during Cocktail Hour should the weather be inclement or as a casual lounge area in which to relax.

Our
Catering

The
Edwardian
Manor

The Edwardian Calderwood Hall Manor is the ideal backdrop for your wedding. Her double-storey elegance, reception areas, and wide sweeping staircase create such presence, yet she is also welcoming and warm.

The drawing room is tastefully decorated and you can soothe away tensions as you relax in the calm ambience or enjoy a crackling log fire on winter days.

Every meal feels like an occasion when served in our dining room. It is a spacious, elegant room with five-metre high steel pressed ceilings, a built-in dresser, a huge fireplace, exquisite mural, yellowwood floors and large sash windows which overlook the gardens.
