For my first time shooting a wedding in the Kzn midlands I couldn’t have asked for a better couple or location than Orchards. Located in the rolling hills of the Caversham Valley, this all-in-one wedding venue is about a romantic and elegant as they come. While I’d consider myself a Cape Town wedding photographer, I travel quite often to shoot destination weddings like this one. I flew into Durban and made the short two hour drive to the venue. The drive itself is stunning and I could see right away why people would choose to get married in the midlands. Once at the venue I was warmly greeted by the staff and left to explore the area. As it was my first time in the area I wanted to find the best locations in the Caversham Valley for wedding photos. I soon realized I wouldn’t have to leave the Orchards property as it was full of potential photo locations. The great thing about Orchards is you can hold both your ceremony and reception on the property – a complete all-inclusive wedding venue! Orchards wedding venue has options for both an indoor wedding ceremony and outdoor ceremony. The outdoor ceremonies are located in the meadow are can seat up to 160 guests. Its a rustic but luxurious location to say I do and the beauty of the surrounding trees and water makes for an ideal all year round setting. My personal favorite spot for a wedding ceremony at Orchards is the Chapel. A great indoor venue for when it rains or the weather is a bit chilly, the Chapel has two large windows on one end to let a little bit of the outside in. The rolling Caversham hills in the backdrop make for an epic wedding ceremony location. While better suited for intimate weddings, the Chapel can still hold up to 140 guests. Unlike most midlands wedding venues, Orchards has a dedicate space for post wedding ceremony cocktails. It is an extremely warm and intimate space and the mixture of exposed wood and glass makes for a unique setting. It allows for beautiful light which is important for candid wedding photos. The indoor wedding reception space is located in a beautiful building that can seat up to 200 guests, making it the perfect reception venue for large weddings. The adjacent pool and water features makes for a truly luxury wedding venue! As a midlands wedding photographer that shoots primarily in natural light one of the things I most appreciate about Orchards is their colour pallete. The neutral grey tones make for the perfect lighting for kzn wedding photos and also gives you a flexibility depending on what kind of wedding you want. When it comes to wedding photos at orchards wedding venue you are truly spoilt for choice. The main bridal house makes for a beautiful indoor photo location and the lush gardens outside is stunning, especially once the sun starts to set. As soon as I left the venue I was already looking forward to my next midlands wedding at Orchards.
