Rosemary Hill is a beautiful farm just east of Pretoria. We have been farming organically and bio-dynamically since 1978 and we are one of the biggest producers of Rosemary oil in South Africa. In addition to the farming, we have 33km of trails that meander through the farm. Our objective is to provide an opportunity for all your friends and family to share a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of city life. With our extensive accommodation, everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the farm-life, fresh organic food and all the activities on offer for example renting a mountainbike or going for treetop adventures/ ziplining down in the forest.
What sets us apart from other wedding venues is that
- We only host one traditional wedding per weekend!
- You get two full days for set up and décor – no last minute rushing that causes unnecessary stress.
- We include countless décor options for you to choose from, just come and browse through our décor warehouse to pick and choose what you would like to use.
- Our dedicated and passionate staff spend hours making your beautiful confetti and flower carpet by hand! They use seasonal fresh and dried flowers and herbs from the farm.
- We include a beautiful Suite or Cottage for your convenience the night before, as well as the night of the wedding.
Each wedding is set up from scratch using the unique facilities that we have available:
The Barn: This beautiful wooden structure was built in the late 80’s to house an entrepeneurs market. It was later enclosed and used as a store on the farm. Today we use it to seat up to 250 guests for a wedding ceremony, or it can seat up to 120 guests for a wedding reception.
The Pavilion: Located at the centre of our formal garden, this open sided structure provides 360-degree views of the beautiful maze which is home to over 2000 plants. It is a very romantic setting for the wedding ceremony or canapes.
The Greenhouse: This working plant home is such a magical space in which we host our winter weddings. It can seat up to 300 guests for ceremonies, but if you have a smaller wedding we simply fill the space up with rows of plants.
The Packhouse: Our old vegetable processing facility is very spacious with high ceilings and can be used for wedding receptions of up to 300 guests.
Our accommodation includes:
The Cottage: Free-standing thatch cottage with a king sized bed, en-suite bathroom, lounge, DSTV, bar fridge and patio.
The Guesthouse: Old classrooms dated back to the 80's that include 6 contemporary rooms including the Suite- ideal for Bride to get ready in.
Farmhouse: A holiday home ideal for families or groups of friends as it includes 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 en-suite), a fully equipped kitchen, games room, 3 fireplaces a lounge area and patio.
