Weddings at The Bend

The Bend Country House is a unique country venue.

We can take no credit for the fact that the setting is unparalleled in the Midlands and never disappoints those of us who are fortunate enough to experience it. We are confident that your special day will be an unforgettable experience for both you and your guests. We are dedicated to providing you with personal service and assistance with all the details of your wedding. Our only objective is to ensure that the bride and groom and all who care about them have a truly happy experience – one on which to build a long and prosperous future. We have a portfolio of service providers including: marriage officers, photographers, hairdressers, make-up artist, DJ’s etc, whom we can confidently recommend.

The Reception room dates from the 1920’s.

It was converted from the old Milking Parlour and we have tried to retain the ambience of the space. The beautiful rafters add character to the interior and we have tried to enhance rather than alter the building. We have a bar with perhaps the most unusual bar counter in the Natal Midlands – an 80 year old section from one of the Tibetan cypresses on the river bank!. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed and we have hosted many happy and memorable weddings.

Adjoining the Reception Room is a charming Stone Chapel with the capacity of up to 150 wedding guests.

1400 Hectare Estate

Providing many beautiful photographic opportunities including the banks of the river, a slave bell, horse paddocks, old farm buildings and a mature garden. The magnificent staircase in the Main House has featured in many beautiful bridal pictures, as has the suit of armour.

Dear Denis, Sheila, Ayanda and team. There are not enough words to describe how grateful we are to have had our wedding at The Bend. You guys really outdid yourselves and the staff, food, venue etc. were just outstanding. We made many memories that weekend and will definitely be back soon for a breakaway. Thank you dearly from Michael and Sally.

We did a wedding there the weekend of 22 April. There would never be the right words to explain our absolute gratitude to every single staff member from the management right down to the gentleman that lets the sheep out. You were all so accommodating, friendly and kind. Well done and congratulations. For any bridge looking for a venue to have a forever always memory and a wonderful wedding, The Bend country house is a must.
