Lythwood Lodge Weddings

An ideal recipe for that Dream Wedding…

Lythwood Lodge understands that every Bride wants her wedding to be unique. We strive to provide a level of service that will be remembered by you and your friends for a very long time. Our Wedding Liaison Officer, and her experienced “hands on” team will assist you in every possible way to make your dream come true.

” Many of our Guests have said that our wedding was the best they have ever attended. Our International guests from the UK, New Zealand, and Australia now have such a favourable view of our beautiful country – Greg and Debbie ”

The Chapel
The sanctification of the marriage can be undertaken at Lythwood Lodge in our unique chapel that has been converted from an old dairy. Seating inside is restricted to 125 but on the concrete apron outside a further 100 or so can be seated.

Its rustic character adds a certain solemnity which hallows the occasion. Most christian denominations accept the venue but you should check with your minister of choice beforehand.

Use of the chapel is available upon confirming our reception venue at no additional cost.

“We want to thank you all for a beautiful venue, willing and helpful people, awesome food, great service and for all the extras that made our wedding outstanding.”

Your Reception
You have tied the knot and now it is time to celebrate! Let us help make this a very special day for you……

Our beautifully decorated venue is perfect for both day and night weddings and can seat up to 200 guests inside and a further 140 on the covered patio (340 in total). It has that special allure and does not require any draping; consequently you can avoid unnecessary further expense. We will only be too pleased to discuss your table decor requirements.

All our table linen, crockery, cutlery and glasses are up-market and together with our padded seats and white chair covers, present an amazing “wow” factor. Allow our friendly and well trained staff to indulge you and your guests with our superb service.

Use of the chapel is available upon confirming our reception venue at no additional cost.

“Thank You, these two words are so easy to say but in our case they come your way with sincere heartfelt meaning. …….hospitality all our guests received are still spoken about…”

Lythwood Lodge Awards

Lythwood Lodge in the Natal Midlands was recently voted the Best Hotel Reception Venue in the Africa Bridal Industry Awards (ABIA) Coastal Region and also received the Silver Award for Boutique Hotel Coastal Region.

The Awards are held each year from over 20,000 votes cast by Brides from around South Africa. Lythwood were very proud to win this prestigious award in only their first year as members of the Academy. This award is a direct reflection on the care and personal service brides received at Lythwood Lodge during the past year.  At Lythwood we have just completed a major renovation which will further enhance the wedding venue.


We are always cognizant of the escalating costs incurred with weddings and constantly strive to control expenditure and make it easier to manage budgets. In this respect, we have endeavoured to apply charges which will encompass most wedding reception requirements.

The most exquisite venue for your Perfect Wedding, without a doubt the most intimate and Romantic Honeymoon destination.
