Weddings at Ascot

Your wedding day is probably the most memorable day of your life. Everything is planned to the last detail including the wedding reception which generally follows most weddings. Every little aspect of the wedding needs to be incorporated into the wedding or reception venue which is why choosing the right venue is so important!

The wedding venue is not just important for the bridal party, but guests too. You want your guests to feel comfortable and relaxed while taking in the beautiful scenery it has to offer. Not only do our wedding reception venues in Pietermaritzburg provide the perfect atmosphere, it also has that something special that will make your day unforgettable.

We also do Wedding Stationery.

Functions at Ascot

If you are celebrating a birthday, wedding anniversary or any other special occasion, Ascot’s venues provide an ideal setting for any of these.  The venues are also ideal for work functions that need to take place away from your usual office environment.

A product launch or training for example can take place in one of our smaller function rooms.

Catering is also available. You can either choose simple snacks, a delicious home cooked buffet or a delectable braai.  The choice is yours.  For all the options available, please see our Functions Package.

The Elephant Room

This is a large, magnificent thatched wonder which can seat up to 160 people with no dancefloor. It is oval in shape and really has a wonderful feel to it. There is a pretty outdoor bar, which allows more space within the venue,  as well as a big fire pit area for those colder evenings.  For the Wedding ceremony, guests will sit under our large, flat-crowned Acacia Tree, beautifully lit up at night, surrounded by large rocks, railway sleepers and aloe plants.
