Forgive the lack of pictures at this point in time!
We're busy levelling and preparing a stone-walled, lush green lawned, open-air terrace for more formal seated receptions.
The Terrace at Knotwood Forest
For a more formal seated reception, we can accommodate up to 150 guests at the terraced venue - you may also optionally hire a marquee and arrange for the setup thereof, in case you're nervous about the weather! There is a smattering of small benches with views over our grassy farm hill and a stone circle smokers' corner a short distance away from the venue. We provide power, fully equipped restrooms and there is secure on-site parking and waste disposal. There are no additional charges from Knotwood Forest for photography, videography or drone footage, and the venue is available from 08h00 to 00h00 on the day of the wedding.
We do not provide crockery, cutlery or glassware and we do not currently offer catering services. Please arrange for this to be prepared off-site, brought to the venue and laid out by your caterers. At this point in time, we also do not provide furnishings (tables, chairs, etc) or arrange for this, so you will need to make those arrangements and we will gladly allow setting up to commence the day before your wedding from 08h00, and request that you fully clear all your equipment by 16h00 the day after your wedding.
You have two options:
VENUE HIRE ONLY:
The full fee is payable upon booking.
VENUE HIRE PLUS GREENERY, FLORALS & FOREST LIGHTING:
A 50% deposit is payable upon booking, with the remainder due one month before the wedding.
We (by that we mean Ruth personally!) will prepare seasonal florals and greenery, with white draping, and we'll hang tasteful twinkling fairy (or similar) lights along the forest pathways leading between the terrace and other amenities. You'll still need additional decorative lighting on or around your tables, but Ruth's passion is everything plant and flower related, so you're bound to love her rustic, elegant arrangements!
* A 10% discount applies when booking both your ceremony and reception with us.
We ask you to kindly acknowledge our Green Print. Errors and omissions excepted.
In the event of a cancellation an application for refund must be submitted to Knotwood Forest - please request this form from us. Refunds will take 7 working days to process from the date of your application. A cancellation fee of 25% of the total wedding package will apply and will be deducted from the refundable amount. Our current temporary cancellation fee policy of R500 instead of 25% may be applied in the case of cancellations related to COVID-19 and will be confirmed at the discretion of the Knotwood Forest team.
