Retreat to the serenity of Florence Guest Farm and Wedding Venue for a destination wedding to remember. This Mpumalanga venue is nestled near the small hamlet of Chrissiesmeer, only a two hour drive from Gauteng. Country hospitality will be all you experience, throughout the weekend.

Florence is the perfect setting to create memories that will last a lifetime. We have created a one-stop venue with a fairytale forest, a renaissance chapel, and a venue-hall beyond comparison with its old-world charm. Mooi-Nooi is the bride and her bridesmaids dressing haven, while The RamKamp is designed to please the groom and his men. Most of your guests are accommodated on the farm.

Die Klipskuur

In ‘n dierbare ou Sandsteen Melkstal met sy aangrensende Klip Kraal, op ons plaas Florence naby Chrissiesmeer het daar ‘n Sandsteen “Venue” TROUPLEK, verrys wat geen gelyke in die omgewing het nie. Die plek het ‘n tipies Afrikaanse plattelandse gevoel met ‘n Franse “flirtasie”.

Die mure is van sandsteen en ou geroesde sinkplaat, dit word gekomplementeer met naatlose wit-grys sement vloere en minimalistiese kristal kandelare. Die deure en vensters met afgedopte verf kom uit vergange se dae. In die badkamers is unieke skoffelskaar krane met koperpyp afwerkings.

Dit is geleë langs ‘n bloekom bos, op die oewer van twee forel damme, met ‘n verdere uitsig oor een van die baie mere in die Mere Distrik van Chrissiesmeer. Net onder die damme is ‘n nostalgiese hoëveldse syferfontein met tipiese treur wilge bome.

In ‘n naby geleë dennebos is ‘n feëtjie boskerk gebore, die gaste sit op boomstompe nadat hulle deur die ou Waenhuis deure gestap het.


Die Klip Kapel / The Stone Chapel

There was always a need for a chapel at Florence. Cold and rain called for a venue under a new roof.

In the first year of the venue (2012) a very dear friend of mine told me about this gem. The old windows of a church that she knew of, were for sale. At that point in time money was still not easy, but I decided that this is a once off and I needed to get hold of them. I borrowed money and bought them.

For three years they were staring at me, until the time was right to build the chapel.

December 2014 we went to Germany for inspiration on building the chapel.

When we came back, after seeing so many magnificent buildings and churches, I asked Nico what he brought back form the trip, and he said that he really thinks it is worth while putting in extra detail and attention.

I was intrigued with the bells, in every small town we went to, every evening all the bells in the town were ringing. I came back and I wanted our chapel to have seven bells (the perfect number). The sound of bells invites an announcement. They remind you that the love of the Lord is everywhere, all around you even though you can’t see or touch it. We live our lives according to Acts17.22-28 and for us the bells were a sign.

I told everybody about the bells and one by one they arrived at Florence, big and small and we designed the chapel in such a way that the groom and his men will ring the bells to summon his bride.

In the forest and at the main entrance, we placed statues of children playing instruments to enhance the wonderful day and the joy to the world that the Lord has brought.

We started building in June 2015 and opened the chapel for the first wedding at the end of November 2015.

We bless each wedding that will be signed and sealed in this building.

The chapel can seat max 200 people.

“First love” Room ( No 1)
It all began with lots of passion, enthusiasm and one bag of cement. The Cottage was my first accommodation on the farm. It was a storeroom and a place where the cream separator was operating. I had my first guests in October 1997. Since then many people enjoyed the little cottage.

Rondavel  (No 2 )
The Rondavel was previously connected to the old homestead but was separated when I renovated the Farmhouse. At the moment the rondavel stands on its own just next to the main house. It was originally build from stone that the previous owner got from an old municipal reservoir. The sandstone was cut with a round shape especially to build a round structure. The interior and new bathroom of the building was done in 2016. The rondavel is a charming cottage with the most exquisite view on the Blouwater lake.
