About Cranford Country Lodge

77 Old Main Road, Curry's Post
Midlands, 3290

Cranford Country Lodge and Wedding Venue is the perfect setting for country-chic weddings. Nestled in a picturesque valley near Curry’s Post, in the KwaZulu Natal Midlands, we are surrounded by enchanting gardens, rolling hills and magical forests.

As a venue, we go the extra mile to create the event you have always dreamed of, offering elegant facilities that exude country charm, a team of experienced staff that provide service excellence, not to mention unprecedented natural backdrops that will impress you and your guests.

Along with our package we have provided you with a guide to other important considerations and information that we feel crucial for your special day. Our team at Cranford Country Lodge is readily available to provide you with helpful suggestions and other general information about the area and your wedding day. Please feel free to contact Cranford if you would like our wedding package.

Our beautiful chapel looks out onto the picturesque midlands countryside and seats 150 people. The view from the chapel overlooks our largest trout dam. It is an open thatched church with natural stone found on Cranford farm. Alternatively you could have your ceremony in our beautiful gardens. We have a charming lapa-area which is great for your pre-reception drinks. Cranford offers their brides and grooms a choice between two very different, yet equally unique reception venues. “The Barn” with its rustic open rafters, stone arches and fire places, has a wonderful country feel and is a fantastic space for a wedding reception. “The Great Room”, which was completed in April 2015, is equally as special. Its white roof and walls offer a ‘blank canvas’ on which you can create your dream wedding reception. The subtle, yet charming details make it a stylishly innovative and contemporary space. Your reception should be one to enjoy and both our venues have been tastefully decorated to suit a variety of tastes. 

We can seat a maximum of 150 guests in both of our reception halls. If your guest list exceeds 150 then we have a levelled area where a marquee can be set up overlooking the dam.

Our Chef has worked locally and internationally in top and award winning establishments. She is able to design menus to cover every budget and is able to entertain any preferences and dietary requirements, using the best ingredients available, her hands on attention guarantees a perfectly prepared meal for your function.

In addition we offer beautiful B&B accommodation and can sleep up to 60 guests on the property. The effortlessly styled rooms and cottages create a seamless balance between country-cottage and country-chic. If more accommodation is needed we can use all the neighbouring B&B's in the area.

Our enchanting landscapes, giant oak trees and grazing appaloosa’s provide the picturesque backdrop for a carefree wedding in the country. 

• If your guest list exceeds 150 then we have a levelled area where a marquee can be set up overlooking the dam. • Cranford Country Lodge has accommodation for 60 guests, which includes a Honeymoon Suite • The Bridal Suite is complementary to the Bridal Couple on the night of their wedding. • Beautiful stone and thatched chapel that overlooks our largest trout dam • Our thatched lapa is great for pre-reception drinks and the cutting of the cake. • Cranford offers their brides and grooms a choice between two very different, yet equally unique reception venues.

By Chanel & Clint Masson, on 05 Dec 2014

We were married at Cranford Country Lodge - what am amazing day! Everything went perfectly, the Cranford Team were wonderful - like little elves that got everything done without actually looking like they were doing anything. The venue was wonderful, the event management was great, the food was excellent and the service was phenomenally excellent. We could not have chosen better for our special day - thank you to everyone at Cranford who made such a special day so beautiful! Chanel & Clint Masson – 7th May 2014

Warren and myself had our fairy tale wedding day at Cranford on the 31st of May 2014. We could not have asked for a better venue at which to have our wedding. The staff are amazing!! BUT a special THANK YOU goes to Claire and Abongile. Claire and Abongile were efficient, friendly and extremely helpful when it came to the booking of accommodation for our guests. The rooms and facilities provided at Cranford is of great standard! For the event itself I have no words other than WOW!! The food and service from the staff on the day was phenomenal. We have received nothing but compliments from all our family and friends. Cranford could not have been more fantastic! The small little touches they provided like handing me a thoughtful gift the morning of our wedding will not be forgotten. Thank you very much to the entire Cranford Team for providing Warren and myself with the most incredible wedding we could ever have dreamed of! Carla & Warren de Kock – 31st May 2014

By Cindy & Zane Gradwell, on 05 Dec 2014

What a place! Everything and everyone was amazing. Our wedding was held on 2 August 2014, and from months before all the planning, the Cranford girls were on the ball. Alex, Robyn, Abongile and especially Claire went above and beyond in every aspect, answering every question I had, and giving advice for anything I couldn't possibly have considered. They were amazing. The venue itself, is just gorgeous. Horses made the feeling more country like, the weather was great, I could not have asked for a more stunning place and such great people. Thank you to Cranford, our guests raved about how every aspect of the day was perfect. Cindy & Zane Gradwell – 2nd August 2014

We held our wedding at the beautiful Cranford Country Lodge on 7 June 2014. We and our guests loved every minute of the week end. The Diary is a lovely suite to stay in. All our guests were happy with their accommodation. The food was exquisite. A HUGE thank you to dear Alex, Abongile and Claire who are absolute stars in making sure everything runs through without a hitch, from bookings to checking guests in. To the waiters and barman who were so friendly and willing to go the extra mile. I mention Alex again, for holding our hands every step of the way leading up to the weekend, and for all the personal attention on the day - it will never be forgotten! She was fantastic. We had a stunning wedding and the barn is amazing. Thank you! Shalene & Gunther Kritzinger – 7th June 2014

What a great wedding weekend we had for Lauren and Guido! Lauren said she had everything she wished for and more. Thank-you seems inadequate to express how we appreciate everything you did to ensure that her day was great and that all the guests were happy and so well cared for.

We got married at Cranford Country Lodge on a rainy and overcast Saturday in September 2014. Cranford is a beautiful venue with superb accommodation and great service. And it is the Cranford staff’s dedication to giving such great service which really makes getting married at Cranford a wonderful experience. Although the weather was not what we had hoped for, the drizzle and mist did add to a very romantic setting reminiscent of the English country side. The staff at Cranford were prepared with umbrellas for our guests and made sure everything ran smoothly the entire time. A huge thank you to the Cranford staff for making our wedding weekend such a special occasion. I would definitely recommend Cranford Country Lodge to anyone considering getting married in the lovely KZN Midlands. We would like to thank the Cranford team for your assistance in making our wedding day a truly memorable day, rain and all! :) Everything was perfect and run smoothly without any hitches. Chantal & Voight Uys – 27th October 2014

Our dream day took place October 11th, 2014 at Cranford Country Lodge. When your wedding day is even better than you could have imagined! From the beginning it was a priority that our special blend of family and friends must enjoy the day with us. I wanted everyone to feel at home. It is exactly the feeling you get when you enter Cranford with it's cosy, warm and relaxing atmosphere. What a privilege to say "I do" in such a beautiful chapel...spend time with family and friends in the rustic dining area...have the lush landscape as a background all around...and be greeted by the horses as you enter Cranford. The cottages are peaceful and uniquely decorated with country-style décor. The staff is friendly, professional, hardworking, and played a major part in the success of our wedding day. We received great support throughout the process of planning. On the actual day they ensured that everything ran smoothly, a big thank you for that! We have only received compliments from our guests, which is music to our ears. Cranford staff, each and everyone, a very sincere thank you for your huge part in our unforgettable day. Lizelle & Stephan De Goede – 11th October 2014

The perfect wedding venue
Venue Service

By Natasha, on 05 Dec 2014

We decided on Cranford country lodge for our wedding this November 2014 due to it's beautiful scenery as well as warm & cosy, rustic barn, magical chapel etc. Decoration of the venue was so simple due to it being so gorgeous already. During the ceremony we looked out on the lake and horses on the hill while saying our vows. We took the prettiest wedding photos by the lake. We loved the huge honey moon suite as it was not only beautifully decorated and fully equipped but the space made it easy for bridesmaids, flower girl and myself to get ready for the big day, while family members could relax in the lounge and help themselves in the kitchen while they wait. Getting the venue ready was a breeze, due to the helpful staff. During the reception the service from the staff was prompt and excellent, and they were extremely friendly and helpful at all times. A big thank you to Claire and the staff members who made our wedding day a day we'll never forget. Lots of love Natasha & Darryn Anderson
