About Us

Hugh is dedicated to the venue and is very proud of the magnificent facility on the banks of the Vaal River. When his daughter, Lorette, decided to get married he asked her if she wanted money or a wedding ceremony and reception at the River. Lorette chose to have a full scale wedding with all the bells and whistles.

After consideration of where in the garden to hold the wedding it was decided to build a chapel right on the banks of the river for the ceremony. The slab was constructed over the Chapel and the area for the reception completed.

Lorette and Peter were the very first couple to make their vows in the inside chapel. Lorette’s day was all she had dreamt it would be and now the Venue is available for you to have your dream wedding as well.

The Garden Chapel was added to later and is so popular that in the last 9 years it has been chosen by all the Brides for their Ceremony.

Lorette and Peter then ran the Venue as their business for 7 years before deciding to move their home to England. For the past 2 years Hugh has kept the Venue running and maintained the high standards expected by all the Brides lucky enough to have booked Heavenly Events venue for their Special Day.
