If chairs and tables are required, add R1,900 for 60 guests for Standard packages (R32 pp for more than 60), and R3,900 for 60 guests for the Deluxe Package (R65 pp for more than 60). Secure this opening price before it's too late!
The countryside venue that's close enough
Get the full country feel only a few minutes' drive from Hilton and Pietermaritzburg, just a few kilometres away from the N3 highway that links Johannesburg and Durban. Situated on the picturesque Hilton College road, we're surrounded by the top service providers and top-quality accommodation for your guests. In the build-up to your wedding, you're welcome to pop in anytime as you go about your planning.
A brand new venue means a brand new look! We've worked with top local interior designers to create a 'wow' factor that's unlike any other Midlands venue. We'd love to show you around, so do come and see for yourself.
Your wedding your way
We want your big day to be about YOU. That's why we're flexible in our approach, and we welcome your ideas about how you want to make Harrington House home to your ideal wedding day. We provide the canvas; you bring your personal paintbrush.
Being so close to Hilton, Pietermaritzburg and the N3 means that your guests won't have to travel far from their accommodation. We can also arrange transport options so that your guests don't have to drive.
Picture-perfect Midlands scenery
Our sweeping lawns, landscaped gardens and magnificent trees are the ideal backdrop against which you make the most wonderful wedding memories.
No set menus
We know that food is such an important part of your big day, which is why we offer top local chefs for you, chosen by Harrington House. You can choose any menu options you like and cater for any dietary needs. Our experienced chefs will work within your budget to serve unforgettable food that's personal to you.
A venue that's exclusively yours
Your day should be about your special people, which is why we give you exclusivity of the entire venue from Friday to Sunday of your wedding weekend.
Stay on site
Our upmarket, on-site accommodation will be ready in March 2020. We welcome the bride and groom to stay for free on the night of the wedding. We also offer discounted prices for the bridal group for the Friday and Saturday nights. Why not settle the jitters with a relaxing bridal party braai at our pool the night before the wedding?
Glam up with your girls in our bridal suite
Spending time with your bride tribe as you get ready for the most important day of your life is a special time together. We offer all our brides a suite to get ready - with high make-up chairs, mirrors, a massive bed, occasional chairs, and everything you need to prepare for the walk down the aisle.
Our magical faraway tree
A truly magical and completely unique little spot is the space beneath the swooping branches of the chestnut tree. Weather- and season-dependent, you can say your vows or serve canapes under its enchanting canopy.
Party the night away
The venue only closes when you're ready to call it a night. Because you have exclusive use of the entire venue, noise won't be an issue and you can keep the celebrations going as long as you like!
Classic yet modern
The newly-renovated Harrington House has all the ingredients for the perfect Midlands wedding - spectacular grounds, country views, expert service providers, nearby accommodation, and a stylish reception venue unlike any other!
Our classic, yet modern function venue can seat 80 people inside, and can accommodate up to 120 people using the enclosed verandah. The space is upmarket and chic, while still welcoming and comfortable.
Our favourite features in the function venue are the 25 blown-glass lights, solid wooden flooring, brilliant white beams, character-filled fireplace and beautiful, custom-made bar, and the large verandah - perfect for sundowners! - with steps spilling down onto manicured lawns with magnificent trees.
Jen, Rob and their competent team take it upon themselves to turn your wedding dreams into your perfect wedding day story, with every detail just as you envision it. We'll work around your budget and can help suggest trusted suppliers who can help make your day all that you deserve it to be.
The best way to picture your perfect day the Harrington way is to pop in and experience it for yourself.
