About Illyria Wedding Venue

Nominated as one of the most romantic destinations in South Africa, Illyria House is the ideal venue for an elegant wedding occasion. Every event at Illyria House is tailored according to our guest’s specific needs.

Situated on a hilltop opposite the impressive Union Buildings and overlooking the beautiful Jacaranda lined streets of the Pretoria, Illyria House is a favorite garden retreat. The Illyria House Estate comprises a magnificent colonial manor, set in tranquil gardens with an exquisite pool, summer house and the delightfully different Oriental HideAway.


For your intimate, fairytail wedding, leave it to Illyria House to create the magic. Famous for its fine collection of antiques, 17th century tapestries, exquisite cuisine and soft classical music, the opulence and charm of the venue is unmatched.

We specialize in a variety of catering options. Our formal banquets, featuring beautifully presented plated food is the pick.

The Buffet style service has been introduced due to popular request. A long table on the veranda overlooking the garden, round tables in the music room or in the HideAway are some of the venue options featured in our photographs.

Light luncheons served on the veranda, overlooking the garden setting is the ideal choice for a bride who wants a fresh day time look and feel for her wedding day. Picnics in the summer houses at the pool is another delightful option for a beautiful elegant, but informal, convivial experience, reminiscent of the Impressionist period.

High Tea, a real treat, has been compared to the High Tea at the famous Browns in London! We try to be the best in our genre in order to offer a unique and special occasion to our guests.

For a shorter, but chic occasion, we love to do a Cocktail Party, with a Jazz Band creating the vibe. Our breakfasts have been commended forever, with eggs florentine and French toast, the Illyria specialties, at the top of the list.

The Oriental Experiences ranging from Chinese to Moroccan, with belly dancers, Persian rugs and seating on cushions on the deck are spellbinding, fun filled, parties, exuding the mystique of the Orient.

Weekend weddings are the utmost relaxing memorable wedding experience, with celebrations from Friday evening until Sunday morning after breakfast. We have seen families playing together and really bonding during these weekend long events.

Photography at Illyria House provides the most amazing wedding pictures to enjoy for a lifetime and become family heirlooms.

Illyria House offers a guest experience that is intimate and discreet, while providing the highest level of service excellence and exceptional cuisine, expected from any five star hotel. We do not only endeavor to provide a service of excellence, we create magic.
