To aid you in getting through this challenging undertaking, we’ve come up with 5 simple reasons why you should consider getting married at Walkersons Hotel & Spa – a spectacular wedding venue in Dullstroom.
The tranquil atmosphere and stunning scenery of the 800-hectare Walkersons Estate makes it an idyllic setting for a small country wedding. Think rolling hills, gently flowing rivers, picturesque waterfalls, tranquil trout-filled lakes and vast fields of lush green grass. Pick any one of these natural attractions to serve as the backdrop for a set of wedding photographs that perfectly capture the happiness and beauty of your special day.
Walkersons Hotel & Spa boasts its own quaint, private chapel, with a seating capacity of 30 guests and a standing capacity of 50 guests. For larger parties, the chapel can also be transformed to accommodate up to 100 people by setting up chairs under a large white marquee in the adjoining courtyard. As for the reception, the nearby Walker Room can be transformed into a sophisticated venue, or the festive soiree can be set out under the open sky in a number of locations across the estate.
Walkersons Hotel & Spa features a wide variety of accommodation options suitable for all wedding goers. On their very first night official married night, the newlyweds will be set up in the luxurious Honeymoon Suite, which comes complete with a king size four-posted bed, his and hers bathrooms, a Jacuzzi bath, twin showers and a cosy fireplace. The wedding guests, on the other hand, can be accommodation in the various other suites in the hotel, or in the lovely self-catering cottages dotted around the property.
To ensure your absolute privacy, wedding parties are requested to book out the whole hotel for their exclusive use over the course of the wedding, so all our accommodation is set aside in advance. Children are welcome at the bride and groom’s request, and no outside guests will be allowed to enter the premises.
Dining at Walkersons Hotel & Spa is a celebration of the senses; and your wedding should be no different. The 5-star cuisine created by award-winning Chaine Chef Adri van Wieringen can be tailored to match your taste and budget, so make sure to get in touch with a member of staff to discuss the different options available.
The beauty of holding a wedding at Walkersons Hotel & Spa is that it maintains the perfect balance between proximity and distance. It’s close enough to Johannesburg and Pretoria that it can be reached in less than 3 hours, yet it’s worlds away from the city. This convenient location is likely to be attractive to those who have international or regional guests needing to make their way to the wedding.
And remember, the wedding party can also enjoy pre- or post-wedding pampering at the Walkersons Spa – so get booking!
