At Oaklands Country Manor, we specialise in intimate country style weddings, each one personalised to create a uniquely magical day for the couple and their guests. The venue, in the central Drakensberg, is exclusively reserved for the wedding party, ensuring that no effort is spared in coordinating the day the couple will always remember. Oaklands can accommodate weddings at any time of year, with October to March being the prime recommended season in the Drakensberg. Both the ceremony and reception can be hosted on the property at one of our stunning venues.
Oaklands Wedding Packages
Our wedding packages have been crafted to make the best use of our various unique venues. We offer 2 wedding packages:
- The Oaklands Country Wedding Package is designed to accommodate a smaller number of guests, an intimate group at no more than 40 people.
- The Oaklands Classic Wedding Package is designed to accommodate a larger number of guests but still intimate at no more than 80 – 100 people.
The entire wedding blessing and celebratory meal takes place in our Acorn Room and on the deck which overlooks the dam and the Tandjiesberg. The style is country chic and eclectic. Due to the size of this wedding package, the hiring of equipment to accommodate the number of guests is required. Other expenses such as catering and decor are tailor-made to match the couples’ personal requirements and budget.
We can accommodate up to 34 guests staying in-house. To accommodate your wedding we have to ensure that you book both the Friday and the Saturday night. This allows you full run of the hotel and exclusive use of all our facilities for the weekend. The accommodation price of R77,600 (34 guests for 2 nights) includes breakfast.
Wedding Venue Options
The Acorn Centre: set against a dramatic mountain backdrop, a spacious open deck overlooks a beautiful reeded dam, romantic horse paddocks and oak trees. The venue capacity is 80 guests.
Restaurant and terrace: with the same beautiful setting as the Acorn Centre, this is a smaller, more intimate venue best suited to groups of 30 to 60 guests. The restaurant is ideal for a winter wedding, with crackling fires and low romantic lighting.
There are several other, more secluded and rustic spots located on Oaklands Country Manor property and the surrounding central Drakensberg.
