You are currently viewing 5 REASONS WE LOVE WINTER WEDDINGS!


Busy planning your big day but not too sure on your destination or season? Your venue sets the tone for your entire day so deciding where and when is one of the most crucial decisions you will make on your journey to becoming lifelong partners.

To help you out, we’ve put together five reasons why iNsingizi is an option worth exploring:

  1. Spectacular natural beauty

There’s nothing quite like the natural beauty of the outdoors, especially KZN’s beautiful flora and fauna during winter! Crisp air, bare silhouettes of trees, wildlife sunning themselves in the open golden grasslands, and the sun’s gentle rays casting a warm glow on the surroundings ~ it’s a truly magical time to tie the knot! With the vibrant aloes blooming at the foothills of the majestic rolling Mid-Illovo hills and the sounds of nature as your wedding soundtrack, iNsingizi offers the idyllic backdrop for your winter wonderland wedding.

  1. Wonderful weather

Unlike the summer months, winter weather is more predictable and although the mornings and evenings can get a little chilly, the daytime temperatures are glorious, with very little rain expected! In saying this, it is still a good idea to book a venue that offers both indoor and outdoor areas in case the weather doesn’t play ball on your big day. Whether it’s indoor, outdoor or a mix of both that you are looking for, with three venues, the options are endless at iNsingizi.

  1. Cosy and intimate

With the cooler weather, winter weddings offer a comfortable and cosy atmosphere that just can’t be replicated in the warmer months… Think about elegant, layered wedding attire, warm hearty meals, unmistakable crackles of the fire and a few shots of sherry to warm you from the inside out! iNsingizi’s reception venue boasts a massive open fireplace, exposed wooden beams and a thatched roof, giving you that unique African lodge ambience. If nature is your style, then minimal décor is needed to make your dream venue come alive.

  1. Fun in the wintery sun

The KZN bush offers a range of unique activities for you and your guests to enjoy on the morning of your wedding, or your entire wedding weekend long! These activities will help you and your guests live in the moment, keep the hyper-active entertained and make for fantastic memories. Whether its cocktails (or mocktails!) out in the winter sunshine, getting your adrenaline pumping with a cycle or run on our trails, loosen those muscles with a heavenly massage or simply relaxing besides the pool with a book in hand… iNsingizi Lodge & Spa offers a range of activities for you and your guests, making your wedding a true vacation and celebration all in one.

  1. All-in-one venue

Nature-inspired wedding venues provide you with an all-in-one package deal making your planning and organising a little less stressful. Think about it, you only book with one supplier which means your accommodation, food, décor, drinks, and venue are all sorted! From stunning ceremony venues to an authentic reception hall complete with a cosy fireplace, onsite catering, bar services and accommodation sleeping up to 32 guests and a separate guesthouse on our neighbouring farm sleeping a further 16 guests, iNsingizi Lodge has everything you need to make your day unforgettable!
