Weddings at the Irene Farm are:
are four choices of venue for couples looking to hold their wedding at
the Irene Farm. The first is called The Bales, and is our newest
addition to the Farm’s unique setup. The Bales ceremony venue is a
converted 120 year-old red brick farm barn seats 80 people with ease
and gives you the room to decorate your day in almost any way you can
dream of. The Bales is a private venue and off-limits to other farm
The Lawn Enclosure is our other ceremony venue.
As this venue is outside, it is not as private as The Bales, but can
seat 100 people and can also be decorated in almost any style.
Farm also has two reception venues. The Barn Function venue is inside,
private, and keeps with the classic venue style of the Irene Farm. This
inside venue seats 80 people in a banquet style while still leaving
space for superb decorations and arrangements.
Restaurant is also available for wedding receptions, however this is
also not a fully private venue. This outside venue has even more space
for you to drape it and your guests in beauty and good memories on your
special day. Both reception venues enjoy the same top-class food from
The Barn Restaurant, with a variety of different buffet options
While the Irene Farm has only recently started
hosting wedding receptions, it’s got to be one of the oldest venues
around. The two farm barns that hold The Bales ceremony venue and The
Barn Function venue are both 120 year-old historic buildings and their
classic look has become an iconic picture on the Centurion landscape.
farm yard is a vibrant and ever-changing environment, overflowing with
charm. Come and admire our lush green fields and bursting buds in
springtime, visit the baby calves or marvel at the ancient avenue of
old oak trees in the winter – you never know what you’ll find!
Farm does not do the ceremony or reception setup themselves, but in
conjunction with the Irene Lodge, we have a long history of arranging
and hosting dream weddings. This means that we can recommend and refer
clients to specialist planners who will drape, design or theme their
wedding in any style possible.
The Irene Farm offers
visitors convenience and beauty in one setting. We are nestled between
the sprawling cities of Joburg and Pretoria and only a 25 minute drive
from OR Tambo Airport, and yet the farm still manages to effectively
retain its country charm, making visitors feel like they’re getting
away from it all, without actually having to get away.
in 1889, the Irene Farm has been run by the van der Byl family for five
generations. Today, it retains much of the storybook charm it had when
it was first started.Aside from these wedding venues, the Irene Farm
also has a Dairy Shop, an unparalleled fresh food store that sells milk
and cream produced right on the Farm, a decor and gift store - Nest,
and a second restaurant - The Deck.
Visitors who are
looking for accommodation in the area, or wish to continue their party
past the 6pm closing time of the Irene Farm, can simply move across the
road to the Irene Country Lodge, where we will be happy to continue
hosting guests on the same tab they had at the Irene Farm.
