Polo at your wedding
Val de Vie Estate is the only residential estate in Africa that offers you the opportunity to enjoy a private polo game during your wedding or event.
A polo game at Val de Vie is nothing short of spectacular, capturing a true sense of tradition and occasion. Our events team will help you to add the excitement and elegance of this noble sport to your celebration.
A Rolls Royce drives the wedding couple to the side of the polo field, where they can watch a line of polo ponies walk in procession as the Val de Vie anthem plays. When the polo players reach the couple, they receive the chance to start the game by throwing the ball in.
The polo match will keep guests captivated for 45 minutes, allowing the couple plenty of time to have their wedding photos taken on the estate.
