Bigger cities do not offer that same out-of-the-way feel that towns situated within Mpumalanga boast. Sometimes called “The Place Where the Sun Rises”, this province truly does offer some of the most breathtaking views of each morning’s daybreak. It is no wonder then that Mpumalanga is home to plenty of function venues and accommodation spots that draw tourists out of bustling cities and into the magic of nature. Here at Kralinbergh Estate, our wedding venue in Mpumalanga features everything South Africans have come to love about this truly magnificent region.
All those mood boards and files filled with inspiration for your special day won’t come close to that moment suspended in time when you finally tie the knot with your significant other. What better way to celebrate your love eternal than with a ceremony under the witness of century-old, regal oak trees? Forest weddings are a superb idea for those who want to get lost in the whimsical fantasy of fairy tales and folklore. If you are still tiptoeing the line between a traditional wedding and a majestic exchanging of vows under a canopy of lush Mpumalanga greenery, here are a few things to think about:
• Your Guests Will Adore the Scenery: Have you ever attended a wedding venue that gave off a stiff feeling that left everyone’s backs aching from sitting so upright? Choosing a wedding venue steeped in the unfiltered beauty of nature means your guests will also feel transported to a world of peace and tranquillity. Sharing this intimate space with your guests makes your day all the more special.
• Marvellous Opportunities for the Perfect Shot: Looking back on your ceremony, all you really have are your special memories and the photographs to match. A mesmerising venue set out in nature means that your snapshots will be spectacular too. In this way, you will be able to fill a scrapbook or album full of prints where the light dances through the trees, and the green majesty of our planet forms the backdrop of your vows.
• Any Décor Will Work: The wonderful thing about getting married in a forest setting is that nature speaks for itself – no embellishments needed. If you do love décor and furnishings, however, then practically any theme will work with the great outdoors. Rustic arrangements using natural elements, fine and intricate vintage ornamentation, even classical and sophisticated adornment will work – it is all up to you.
• Endless Wedding Ideas: When it comes to rustic farm or forest weddings, you will find far more creative ideas than for any other theme online. From fairy lights and lanterns to homespun naked cakes, the internet is full of phenomenal concepts and ideas that one can customise with their own creativity.
Throughout the Kralinbergh Estate, mature oak trees greet betrothed couples and guests alike, offering their awe-inspiring shelter and beauty. Cows and horses freely roam in the viridescent fields, and it is here that every year, numerous couples find the start of their happily ever after.
