The venue: Forest and Old Barn in Gansbaai suitable for big weddings
This is an enchanting secret forest ceremony spot that wont fail to get your heart fluttering as you enter through the gates and meander along the forest aisle. Exchange vows under the leaves of a giant oak in the depths of an indigenous forest and surrounded by a sea of white arum lilies.
The wedding celebration then takes a truly epic twist as the party moves on to the Old Barn, a rustic 19c former dairy, implement sheds and pig styes which have been lovingly converted into a unique event venue. With several fireplaces, original features, cigar lounge and a large dining area with rustic wooden tables and chairs where you and your guests can party the night away in comfort, or make s’mores over the fire under the stars and listen to the owls hoot. With four large fire places (three indoors and one large fire pit outside) the Old Barn is a cosy haven. Perfect for winter celebrations.
The Old Barn & Forest venue can be described as a laid-back party venue that is ideal if it’s a festive atmosphere you are longing for.
