THE ELEPHANT HALL
CAPACITY 80 TO 140 GUESTS
Punctuated by 3 spaces:
• The Elephant Hall • The Elephant Boma • The Koi Pond Pavillion
The Elephant Hall trumpets loudly as The Garden Venue’s very first wedding hall, and was refurbished and upgraded in 2020.
With all its sentimentality intact, like a grand dame, the thatch architectural style and light marble tiled floors, delighting in a neutral colour palette, causes the Elephant Hall to be sufficiently versatile for any wedding style. It is light and airy with giant windows enjoying magnificent garden and pond views. The space has been redefined with a modern bar area and a separate banqueting service station.
It can cater for up to 140 guests under roof banquet style. Guests who use the Elephant hall, will typically host their ceremony on the magnificent Koi Pond Pavilion, outside the Elephant Hall. The Koi Pond Pavilion is adjacent to the Elephant Hall and is an exquisite outdoor space with decking pavilions cantilevering over the Koi ponds. Schools of gold and orange Japanese Koi fish add an exotic touch to this already remarkable space and as such it is the ultimate venue for unforgettable wedding ceremonies.
During the ceremony, guests are seated on decks surrounding the Koi ponds, and all eyes are on the bride as she makes her way down the stairs and walks over the boardwalk to the ceremony space. A lush landscape with tropical palms and indigenous trees frames the Koi Pond Pavilion.
The Koi Pond Pavilion also offers the perfect opportunity where welcome canapés and drinks can be enjoyed. But many weddings choose the intimate Elephant Boma below the Elephant Hall, to serve welcome drinks and canapés, while the bridal party take photos in the designer gardens.
