Welcome to Montague Vale
Just outside the picturesque town of Parys lies an ancient valley known only on old maps as Montague Vale. Montague Vale is a wedding venue and distinguishes itself from other farm wedding venues due to the freedom a couple enjoys to create their own unforgettable wedding day in this very homely and warm setting provided.
More than a hundred years ago a little school master’s house was built that today, after being lovingly restored, forms the heart of this romantic setting.
There’s an abundance of unique spots for couples to say “I do”. You can take your pick from the original and authentic schoolhouse or under the enormous trees. While the bridal party pose for photos in many of the idyllic locations, wedding guests can enjoy a range of activities.
When you’re ready to party Montague Vale has the perfect location for a unique, relaxed, rustic wedding reception. We host undercover seating for 60 guests with the option to extend the tables onto the grass (weather permitting). Space for a marquee tent is also available in the event of a bigger wedding party. Montague Vale is a wedding venue that will make sure your celebration is one your friends and family will never forget.
Montague Vale has over a thousand hectares of prettiness and privacy, so there’s plenty of room to add your own special touches to your wedding day.
As far as the owners are concerned Montague Vale is yours for the weekend. You can choose to keep the four bedroom (self catering) house to yourself or share it with your guests. The town of Parys provides a host of guest houses, restaurants , shops and catering facilities.
Montague Vale is conveniently located just outside the quaint little town of Parys, Free State. An idyllic, historic, unique wedding venue a pleasant 60 minute - all tar road - drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria.
