THE OLIVE TREE HIDE
CAPACITY 50 TO 80 GUESTS
Punctuated by 3 spaces:
• Olive Tree Hide • The Lawn Terrace Chapel • The Pot Cascade
The Olive Tree Hide is a thatch hall in an enviable position nestled under a grand old indigenous Olive tree growing out of rock boulders that have been there since time began. Typical of a hide in the bush, this wedding venue is private and tucked away, blending seamlessly with its surroundings.
A meandering pathway leads through the trees to a rock cascade and a raised wooden deck. It’s a magical and intimate venue situated at the far end of The Lawn Terrace. It can cater for up to 80 guests banquet style.
In 2020 our Olive Tree Hide was refurbished and enlarged. A separate bar lounge area and an impressive serving station punctuates the now glamorous newly upgraded wedding venue. Giant glass windows
compel a captivating view into the rich green foliage below the Olive tree canopy, while the hippo rock cascade lulls the senses with gently flowing streams. Welcome drinks and canapés can be served adjacent to the Pot Cascade at the entrance to this captivating venue.
The entire hall is surrounded with an abundance of plants – what better way to escape and celebrate your wedding day?
Although the Olive Tree Hide sits at the far end of The Lawn Terrace, along the way you will find a majestic Acacia Tree. It’s at this robust African tree that we had chosen to build our Lawn Terrace Chapel, shared with our Peacock Venue, ideal for intimate wedding ceremonies. It’s an outdoor chapel, with sandstone tiles underneath and planter boxes filled with formal lollypops and iceberg roses – dramatic indeed! Pot cascades frame the left and right of the stage and the branch canopy of the Acacia Tree forms the ceiling. If you are looking for a garden wedding, then look no further!
Rolling lawns & immaculately landscaped gardens defines this beautiful garden space and at the right time of the year our Jacaranda tree in the middle of The Lawn Terrace scatters an enumerable amount of glorious blue-purple flowers.
