Emelia Weavind - Moonlighting Productions 5I cannot thank you enough for your professional, polite manner with how you accommodated us as a film crew, it was an absolute pleasure collaborating with you ... looking forward to filming at that magnificent Manor again, and meeting up with you again, what a pleasant experience that was, thank you two so very much.
Farrell & JessicaThis venue is exceptional! Its history, its scale, the high ceilings, the wrap-around verandah, the landscaping and setting all contribute to it being a truly memorable, old world escape for city dwellers.
The chapel is a national treasure - one of the oldest in KZN, beautiful and steeped in history.
Our guests couldn't stop talking about the wedding and how this venue is the best kept secret!

Neil Peacock - Kearsney CollegeThank you so much for making us feel so welcome at Kearsney Manor on Friday. The prospect of handling 135 energetic Grade 8 boys must have seemed daunting but you went out of your way to make us feel all so welcome and at home. September 2017
