What an exciting month! It included some long nights and plenty of messages back and forth between the three of us!
We have gone from nothing, to an idea, to a new business and website in only 4 weeks!
We believe that we have a winner here and can’t wait to start dishing up more beautiful COUNTRY WEDDINGS to all our future bridal couples here in our beautiful Patensie. We have been working separately for a few years, but believe that we can work even better as a team providing brides with a
ONE-STOP-SOLUTION destination wedding of their dreams.
Three creative business owners saw potential and growth within their own businesses and realised that it will be even better to link these trades together. We are all living our dream, living in the country, each married to a farmer and raising our 3-children-each in one of the most beautiful parts of the Eastern Cape, the Gamtoos Valley.
Patensie has been a wedding destination choice by various bridal couples from “out of town” as it offers something different and more. It has the potential to turn a one day wedding into a whole weekend affair spent with friends and family in the beautiful valley filled with citrus orchards and farmlands!
Patensie offers the tranquillity you want for your destination country wedding, yet it is only a short drive from Port Elizabeth and Jeffreys Bay making it very easily accessible for consultations beforehand and daytrips for guests choosing not to stay over.
We have everything here you will need to make your country wedding a success, from the fully licenced venue right through to food, photography, hair, make-up, flowers, décor, honeymoon suites, music and guest accommodation. In the Patensie and surrounding area, there are more than 150 beds available to look after your wedding guests and the hosts are all looking forward to entertain you with country cuisine and one of a kind hospitality.
Patensie is in the heart of citrus country and the community here also produces a very large variety of other fresh fruit and vegetables throughout the year. It is right en route to the Baviaanskloof, a world heritage site and wilderness area which is a great draw card for those who love to 4×4 and camp.
We would love for you to spend your special night here with us in Patensie – besides, our stars are SO much prettier than in town!
We welcome you to COUNTRY WEDDINGS family and we are looking forward to this venture, along with our friends, family and other service providers on board to get Patensie on the map as the preferred wedding destination choice!
Our aim is for you to rock up, laugh and have fun, while we do the rest!
Even if you’re not getting married, we will be sharing a whole lot of beautiful posts, so please bookmark our website and visit us from time to time.
Heidi, Danika & Anneli
