A Wedding Reception at Stonehaven On Vaal

Stonehaven on Vaal is a unique Garden Estate set right on the exclusive banks of the Vaal River, with over 1000 rose bushes, beautiful gardens and a very special charming ambiance.

We have a Garden Chapel (included in your Venue fee) and several Venues, each pertinent to different sized weddings. We also have a very private Garden Chapel at Stone Manor. In addition to land Venues, we also have Cruisers that are most suitable for elegant weddings.

Attention to detail is our forte. We spend time with you going over your plans to ensure that the wedding is tailored just for you. If you so wish, we have the facility for you to arrive by Boat, or by luxury car - Jaguar and to have a Scottish Piper playing on the Boat and head your entourage up to the Chapel and Reception. It is very romantic. We also have a magnificent Bridal Suite with Spa Bath in our River Manor House – “Stone Manor”.

The River Terrace venue fee includes the beautiful decorating and draping of both the venue and the Chapel, (the full ceilings of the River Terrace and Chapel are draped), fairy lights, table clothes, overlays (your own choice of colour), white chair covers at the Chapel and in the venue, crockery, cutlery, red carpets at the Chapel and up to the Venue, PA System, lectern, personalised Menus for the tables & personalised welcome signs.

Our Executive Chef is very accommodating in meeting personalised menus and needs. A full private Bar is made available in the venues. You will need to advise us of how you would like the Bar managed. No food or beverages are allowed to be brought onto our property including “beverage or food/sweets gifts for guests”.

Like all other businesses, we also have inflation related price increases. So the prices you view today might have gone up by the time of your actual wedding. Please keep in contact with us to see if there has been an increase that will affect your costs.

A deposit equal to the venue fee is required when you finalise the date and request us to reserve that date for your Special Day. The deposit infers that we do not accept other Functions in your venue at that time, and therefore the deposit is not refundable and is a commitment by both parties. Fifty percent of the food bill is required 4 weeks prior to the wedding and full payment of the reception and all costs involved is required two weeks prior to the wedding and these payments are also not refundable if the wedding is cancelled within those weeks. With our very best wishes for a marvellous wedding!


After a brief from yourselves regarding your own particular needs, requirements and objectives required for the day, your group will be strategically divided into teams. Each team can choose a name or a theme of their choice with their own logo. They will then partake in a selection of some of the games listed below. We will decide from your brief as to which games would be most effective for your particular group. Not all games are appropriate for every group and your brief will assist us in assessing this.
