Weddings

Welcome

Waterfall Cove is nestled on a herb farm in the riparian forest along the banks of the Mid Crocodile River known as the “Muldersdrift se Loop” in Muldersdrift.  We are in close proximity between Johannesburg and surrounding north, east and west towns and cities as well as Pretoria and within a 20 minute drive from Lanseria airport and under a 5 minute drive from the nearest shopping centre and casino.

Waterfall Cove is an exclusive ALL-IN-ONE; ONE-FUNCTION-ONLY country wheel-chair and pram friendly venue!

Waterfall Cove is EXCLUSIVELY YOURS for the day!!

You shouldn’t have to share a garden for photos; you should not have to worry if you are late for the ceremony; no time limit to the use of the Chapel, this is Your Day – Your Wedding!! Waterfall Cove does not restrict you to a minimum number of guests; we understand and are flexible to your every need.

We have created a variety of photo shoot spots to capture Your memories of Your wedding.  Photographers have commented they love our effort to assist them in creating a master piece of emotions.

We have a charming vintage 1952 London double decker bus which you can use at no extra charge.  Her name is Bessie.

For your peace of mind we have a huge 60KVA automatic switch over generator.  No stress if there are power outages; it is our duty to provide you with a functional operational venue and therefore we do not charge you for the use of the generator in the event of power outages.

Reception Hall Weddings

Waterfall Cove reception hall has been designed to accommodate from tiny intimate weddings up to 250 guests with a large dance floor; 280 guests with a smaller dance floor and 300 guests with no dance floor.

We are a family owned venue and believe in family love and therefore we have a kiddies room leading off from the inside of the reception hall so that children can be children and mommies need not worry as they are in the reception hall and can check up on them.  The room is private so that nursing mommies can feed and change baby’s nappies and still be a part of the festivities.

Waterfall Cove reception hall ceilings have been draped with over a 1000m of draping with huge wrought iron chandeliers.

We have air-cons to heat and cool the reception hall to a comfortable ambiance throughout summer and winter months.

DOME RIVER BANK CHAPEL

The dome river bank Chapel is set up along the banks of the river very close to the waterfall.

We erect a chandelier to the top front dome frame.

The area is grassed with ever-green grass and is under the trees.

IN-DOOR CHAPEL CEREMONIES

Designed to have the feeling of out-doors but the comfort of in-doors seating up to 220 guests.

The Chapel has 4 x 3m huge sliding doors that can be opened to allow natural breeze to flow through the Chapel.

Beautiful exposed timber trusses with 4 chandeliers down the run-way.

The front wall of the Chapel has a frame for t-light candles which adds romance to the ceremony ambience.

Waterfall Cove is wheel-chair and pram friendly with space allocated in the Chapel for wheel-chairs and prams.

OUR WORK-SHOPS

You have dreamt of Your Wedding Day and now it has become a reality.  So many tasks to do; budgets’ to stick to and then the worry sets in!!!  This is not how it’s meant to be; that’s why at Waterfall Cove we share the journey with you!!!

 

Waterfall Cove knows a wedding should capture your essence and personality and that Your dream day is full of various events and formalities that can be daunting as you are the centre of attention; there is no second opportunity to re-walk the entrance into the Chapel or re-do the opening dance.

To ensure Your dream day’s events are executed flawlessly we conduct monthly 1½ hour workshops or more frequent longer workshops with you from date of booking up until Your wedding.

On average it takes from 5 – 8 workshops to plan and design Your wedding; but we do not have a limit on the number of work-shops; we continue until the designing and planning is perfect.

We also know that it takes time to plan and design and therefore we do work-shops after-hours during week-days or during normal work hours if you have the flexibility to do so and on Sundays.  We therefore do not interrupt your daily stressful work or study life; you don’t have to ask for time off work or put in leave to plan Your wedding.

You will receive a set of minutes after each work-shop that keeps you updated of the design and planning progress.

Together we will design and plan Your entire wedding.

For the work-shops we will physically set up the guest table, bridal table and Chapel benches.

 

Planning and design work-shops entail:

  • For our first work-shop will go over the entire wedding requirements and work on themes and colours.
  • Guest table design for the next 2 – 3 or how-ever many work-shops required to capture Your dream theme table design
  • Main table
  • Chapel
  • Entrance hall and food serving area
  • Cake table, gift table, awards table etc.
  • Wedding details (menu, guest seating board, toasting, bouquets; timing of the events of the day; etc.)
  • Table seating plan and layout of the tables in the hall
  • 1 month before Your wedding we re-cap the entire wedding to ensure all details are correct
  • 1 week before Your wedding we do a full rehearsal; we will walk the walk through all the formalities and obstacles to de-stress you and to set your mind at ease.
  • We will guide the master of ceremonies (MC) as to all the requirements and formalities of the day.
  • Please bring cameras as dry runs are lots of fun and it’s a time for the bridal party, parents etc. to get to know each other

Your personal co-ordinator will conduct the workshops with you on a monthly basis with no limit to the number of workshops.

During one of the work-shops we will plan the timing of the events of the day.

One week before the wedding we will do a full rehearsal (dry run) walking through all the formalities and ironing out any obstacles to de-stress you and set your mind at ease.

During the dry run which is usually on a Sunday afternoon one week before the wedding we go through all the details physically walking into the Chapel, entrance into the hall, opening dance, dad daughter dance / mom son dance etc.  We go through the entire wedding events of the day with the MC and we give guidance to the MC.

Your personal co-ordinator will stay with you for the duration of the entire wedding leading the MC throughout the events and formalities that can be daunting.

Weddings can be costly; therefore to ease the finances all Waterfall Cove décor items of which we have plenty are free (kindly refer to décor listing).  You will only supply perishable items such as candles, batteries for fairy lights, flowers, napkin dressings, guest favours, personalized stationery (table number cards, guest name cards, table seating cards, menu cards etc.) or any décor we do not have.

Waterfall Cove supplies crushed organza overlays and chair tie backs and crushed taffeta runners in any colour of your choice.

We have an abundance of taffeta, paisley and damask runners to choose from but should we not have your colours; we will source your colour in taffeta and organza at no extra expense to you.

Waterfall Cove various themed decor items are included free; we have named a few themes but there are endless opportunities for new themes: vintage, forest, ocean, Gatsby, rustic, crystals, shabby chic, casino, carnival; enchanted garden, beach, fantasy, fairies, movie, travel, classic, farm, winter wonderland, autumn, spring, peacock, lord of the rings, wild life, Italian Napoli, wine, etc.

We work together with you on a theme for Your wedding that will capture Your essence.

We use the finest and freshest of ingredients to achieve the finest results.

At Waterfall Cove we know guests have seconds and even thirds and are hungry after dancing the night away; therefore we do not remove our foods; the foods remain at the serving area for the guests to enjoy throughout the evening.
