Klein Karoo Wedding Venue – Say “I do” in the Klein Karoo!

Barrydale’s Karoo Art Hotel has become a Klein Karoo wedding venue of choice. Surrounded by an impressive mountain range and the unusual and diverse landscape of the Klein Karoo, the area offers breath-taking scenery that will make your wedding photos distinctively beautiful. Only a leisurely 2.5 hour drive from Cape Town, the area is within easy reach from the city.

Karoo Art Hotel can be booked exclusively for your wedding event, for one night or for a whole weekend. For smaller celebrations, couples can opt to book our award-winning restaurant, and we can light up and decorate the gardens to create delightful al fresco seating or pre-dinner drinks. Our historical Belanti Theatre hall with wooden flooring serves as a beautiful wedding venue for larger wedding parties with up approx. 100 guests. The hall, which has its very own bar, can be festively decorated in the style and colour scheme of your choice.

Leave most of the stressful wedding planning and event preparations to our friendly and flexible staff who will aim to make your wedding day a truly romantic, blessed and unforgettable experience. Should you wish to use a professional wedding-planner, we can connect you with appropriate local service providers.
