The BridgeWedding Venue – the Bridge, established in 2002, is one of Muldersdrift\’s hidden treasures. What is more is…We do not charge venue hire. You only pay for food and drinks and we offer exclusivity at The Bridge for the duration of your function.
The Bridge is an old converted farmhouse set in tranquil gardens beside the banks of the Wilgespruit. The river runs over the low level bridge that takes you to indigenous gardens where willow and large stinkwood trees, amongst others, surround fountains, well maintained lawns and beautiful flower beds.
The Bridge in Muldersdrift is the ideal setting for celebrations of all kinds and is conveniently situated only 20 minutes from Randburg and Fourways and approximately 35 minutes from Pretoria.
Our well-planned and appetizing menus are prepared and presented by our very talented and highly trained chef, who working alongside our dedicated team has made The Bridge famous for its high quality food and professional service. We offer both plated and buffet menu options.
