If you’ve settled on Clarens as the venue for your nuptials, you’ll already know you’ve chosen one of the most beautiful wedding destinations possible in South Africa.
Few will have taken the journey up to Clarens with you to view the venue ahead of the wedding, which means that friends and family will only be introduced to the breath-taking beauty of this one hundred year old village on their arrival.
Unless of course they’ve done a bit of research on good ole Google, in which case a romantic wedding won’t be all that they’ll be looking forward to!
Words cannot sufficiently describe the patchwork quilt that nature has designed in this valley at the foot of the Maluti Mountains. Photographs and paintings come closer to the magic contained in every nook and cranny in Clarens, but nothing compares with drinking in the real thing.
Clarens Eddies B&B and Self Catering has played host to many guests descending on Clarens from all corners of the world to share in the romance and joy any wedding brings, and to celebrate in an atmosphere that cannot be replicated anywhere else.
Clarens certainly has bragging rights about being a one-of-a-kind wedding destination in South Africa, having earned the lovingly bestowed nickname of ‘Jewel of the Eastern Free State’.
Family and friends will obviously want to be able to explore while you and the groom get ready for the big day, and Clarens has enough to keep everyone busy, from the younger to the older generation.
Many visitors extend their bookings so that they are able to enjoy far more than just a whistle-stop tour of everything there is to see and do in Clarens, before and after the wedding.
The staff at Clarens Eddies have a way of making every guest feel welcome and right at home for their stay, assisting with insider tips on where to go and what to do, to make it a truly special experience over and above the happy occasion.
Here are a few suggestions, taken from a long list of activities in Clarens, that’ll keep every generation happy as preparations for the wedding get underway:
For the kids:
Kids love dinosaurs, no doubt about it, and the experience of following in the footsteps of dinosaurs in Clarens will definitely give them a great story to take back home. They’ll be taken by an expert on palaeontology to explore the tracks, claws, teeth and other bones left behind by these giants billions of years ago.
For young adults:
There’s a full plate to tuck into for teens and young adults, it’s picking the activity that’s going to present a challenge! Horse riding, white river rafting, cycling, swimming, hot air balloon rides and moreare there for the taking, though many of these are great for the whole family too.
For the laid-back generation:
The older generation, having raised the kids and now enjoying their grandchildren, will definitely appreciate some of the gentler aspects of Clarens.
A stroll to Clarens Village Square is an experience on its own, with the aroma’s spilling out of over twenty coffee shops and restaurants lining the square calling visitors to take a break from exploring art galleries, gift shops and an eclectic mix of crafts.
Above all, booking family and friends into Clarens Eddies is your assurance that they’ll enjoy the ultimate in comfort and style, as well as being on the receiving end of award-winning service excellence as they share in the joy of your very special day.
