Wedding Venue near PMB

Mon Desir is a romantic wedding venue, with year-round appeal. It caters for weddings from elegant to casual and everything in between. Amy and Penny and their team are passionate about weddings, and committed to service excellence and to providing a wonderful, stress-free wedding. This family owned and managed wedding venue would love to host your special day.  We will do our utmost best to meet your every need, and attention to detail is our priority.

St Alberts Chapel – A beautiful original barn building, with its old tin roof and exposed wooden trusses, sets the tone for your nuptials! With the option of our garden chapel, nestled under beautiful trees and your ‘I do’s’ being witnessed by the occasional Nyala, Zebra or Warthog, amongst the other game on the reserve, makes this venue magical.

The barn is a beautifully restored former milking shed, with exposed trusses and tin roof, and exquisite lighting to add a touch of class. The barn can seat 140 guests, with enough space for dancing and the bar.

Only a short 15-minute drive from Pietermaritzburg, 20 minutes from Albert Falls Dam Reserve and an hour’s drive from Durban, Mon Desir becomes a perfect location for your wedding.

You will get to enjoy our beautiful gardens and trees, which are home to an abundance of birds, or explore the unspoiled African bush and waterhole, with a chance to see Nyala, Duiker, Impala, Zebra, Warthog and Porcupines, or simply relax at the pool and enjoy the spectacular view. There is probably no other view like it around Pietermaritzburg and the Midlands!
