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!
