Our wedding on Oakhurst Farm surpassed what we had envisioned for our day. We had the ceremony in the beautiful church, which was built in the early 1800s. The raw beauty of the farm’s landscape made the outdoor setting perfect for the reception. What we loved most was creating a relaxed, homey space between the trees. We are forever grateful towards you for helping make our wedding the most magical weekend. thank you!
Johan & Louise
The graceful All Saints Church on the beautiful Oakhurst Farm was the location of our wedding. The magnificent Outeniqua Mountains act as the perfect background to the church, which is set partway along a striking avenue of trees in a rural idyll of long green grass, happy cows, dams, hay bales and horses. The Oakhurst staff were professional, helpful and cheerful and were a large part of the success of the wedding weekend.

From the initial enquiry into a wedding at Oakhurst through to our special day, we could not have asked for more. The service from Oakhurst, the attention to detail, the beautiful setting, relaxed vibe and impeccable accommodation made this the perfect place to host our guests. The historic chapel and breathtaking open-air setting made for the most wonderful evening with family and friends. Oakhurst made the memories.
