Celebrations of Love...
MAGNOLIA RESTAURANT IS THE LOWVELD VENUE OF CHOICE
Nestled behind the quaint Casterbridge Lifestyle Centre lies the best kept secret of the Lowveld, Casterbridge Hollow Hotel and Magnolia Restaurant – an idyllic one stop wedding venue with three wedding reception options.
Throughout the world the blooms of the magnolia tree are symbolically associated with dignity, grace and nobility much like the best blushing brides. So it is fitting that Magnolia Restaurant and Café, a setting that shares these traits with its namesake blossom, should have become the wedding venue of choice for Lowveld celebrations of love.
This eclectic, elegant eatery appetizingly serves something special. Afro-chic, quirky interiors conjure up old world grace while über-glamorous, super seasonal menus romance even the most sceptical of guests. Menus are designed around the tastes of individual engaged couples with the help of chef-patron Jamie Watt, who has cooked for both the Queen of England and Charlize Theron, and consequently lays on richly regal, deliciously diva style meals to suit even the most demanding of brides.
Think rose petal martinis with views overlooking orange groves and you will begin to get a feel of Magnolia’s magnificent potential. While the restaurant and cocktail lounge have a glamorous ambiance, the lower level Magnolia Café is child friendly so it is good to know that once the flower girls and page boys have fulfilled their ceremonial duties they can kick off their shoes, tuck into a piece of cake and clamber their way around the superb ship-shaped climbing frame.
The Casterbridge centre has over 35 unique retail outlets as well as hair and make-up stylists on-site, a spa for your beauty and relaxation treatments, lingerie boutique, photographer and jeweller; all set against a background of perfectly manicured gardens.
With Casterbridge Hollow Hotel moments away the bride and groom can slip effortlessly from wedding into honeymoon without the stress of tedious travel.
The four star boutique hotel Casterbridge Hollow has thirty rooms, and is a concept that has evolved with great charm, using the simplest and most basic materials with colours reminiscent of romantic hillside villages in Provence and Tuscany. The Vintage Motor Museum has a few vintage beauties available at no charge for use as a prop during your photographs. Range, quality and that element of surprise are all part of your Casterbridge experience.
