If you dream of a fairy-tale destination wedding away from the hustle-bustle Wits End’s wedding venue, and the chapel is the ideal setting. We are fast becoming the wedding venue of choice in the Central Drakensberg as we not only offer the functions centre, chapel and accommodation all on one site but also offer many of the add on’s as part of the package. In fact, for your dream wedding, all you need to add is your personalized items and you and your guests.  Situated in one of the most beautiful areas of South Africa in the heart of the Champagne Valley, Central Drakensberg with breathtaking mountain views, our purpose built reception venue & on-site chapel each can seat up to 150 guests with on-site accommodation for 60 in 9 fully equipped chalets. The venue is reminiscent of a spacious stone farmhouse, with soaring ceilings and exposed beams, flowing onto a wide veranda overlooking a tranquil lake and acres of unspoiled rolling mountain grasslands. A grand stone fireplace means that a cosy ” winter wonderland” wedding is also a lovely possibility. The chapel with its handcrafted doors made of local pin oak, and framed by 2 reclaimed stain glass windows, has a large picture window overlooking our lake and the hills beyond.
