A spirit of romance and African tranquility seems to engulf Riverside Castle, a wedding and function venue situated in Zwavelpoort, Pretoria East, where Highveld becomes Bushveld.
The majestic castle looks really as though it's been gracing African soil since the dawn of times. The oversized windows, majestic arches and high ceilings add to an overall feeling of spaciousness. We're a romantic medley of beautiful architecture and tree-clad gardens. You will, at Riverside, be transported to a long forgotten era of true romance and where you can, once again, connect to nature and your inner self.
The main reception hall is a romantic Medieval castle of natural stone and wood providing a magnificent venue that will accommodate the entire spectrum of functions from glamorous weddings, formal corporate functions, and conferences to festive and funky birthday parties or matric farewells. Seating arrangements available for this venue include stand-up cocktail, boardroom, cinema, square, schoolroom, round banquet, herring bone or U-shape.
The chapel is situated in a tranquil garden where the chirping birds can merrily sing with joy as you cheerfully say your vows and commitment to each other. Beautifully nestled amongst some of the rarest exotic plants, the chapel is ideal for that special wedding ceremony, be it in the morning or evening with the beautiful sun setting gently to the west. Welcome drinks and light snacks can be served afterwards whilst the newlyweds are busy with photos with their entourage. The chapel can also be utilised for quick product presentations or launches where delegates just need to come and quickly meet for a few hours. Amenities like tea and coffee can be arranged to be served on arrival in the garden surrounding the chapel.
Our corporate venue looks like the legendary King Arthur's chambers. It gives you the comfort and privacy to plan with precision, making solid decisions in your conferences. Situated in the upstairs section of the castle, there are 2 breakaway rooms that can be used by your PA or secretary as an office or storage room for your meeting material. Alternatively a tea or coffee station can be set up in the breakaway rooms to enable you to have refreshments throughout the day. Set up can be done according to your preferences from U-shape and boardroom to schoolroom, round tables or cinema style.
Riverside Bush Boma is a place where unforgettable memories and special occasions will be made. It has a natural, but homely feel to it. Whether you prefer a relaxing or intimate private bush experience or a full on “bells and whistles" corporate function, this venue can be transformed to your heart's desire.
