Hogsback Inn: making wedding magic

Hogsback Inn: making wedding magic reviews_23_4204.jpg

The Hogsback area of the Eastern Cape, with its jaw dropping natural beauty and contrasting landscapes, now also provides the ideal, romantic destination for creating magic weddings. Leaders in this field are The Historic Hogsback Inn, the first and the oldest accommodation establishment on the mountain.


Established in the 1880’s to provide a welcome stop-over for weary travellers, the Hogsback Inn continues to do so almost 140 years later. Over the years the Inn has become the hospitality venue of choice in the small village of Hogsback and its facilities have been expanded and adapted to meet the needs of the modern guest. The Hogsback Inn has been the venue for countless weddings over the years with many happy couples visiting the Inn for anniversaries and some, many years later, to rekindle and share memories of that happy day.


The Hogsback Inn boasts a dedicated wedding co-ordinator to guide wedding couples through the entire process of arranging the special day, from start to finish. With a wealth of experience in organizing these events as well as a directory of tried and tested suppliers of every service from tents to tiara’s, the Inn guarantees a worry free experience and a celebration not to be forgotten.


The beautiful and extensive gardens offer numerous possibilities for outdoor ceremonies as well as receptions in a marquee on the lawns. Other popular venues in Hogsback, for the ceremony, include the quaint St Patrick’s Chapel, the beautiful outdoor venue at the Arboretum or just a simple wedding ceremony under the forest canopy. The garden, with its own mountain stream, is also ideal for photos.


Hogsback Inn has one of the largest banqueting rooms in the village with a main venue able to accommodate up to 140 guests and a second venue for smaller weddings or as a separate room to the main venue, to house a private bar and a buffet.


Modern kitchen facilities and an experienced catering team enable the Inn to produce and deliver menus and meals of every description and to suit every palate and pocket. All the usual facilities of the Inn are available to wedding guests and this includes a variety of accommodation options from comfortable hotel rooms to luxurious suites as well as affordable self-catering accommodation.




Special accommodation rates are offered to guests attending weddings and the Inn also offers the newlyweds free use of its Luxurious Honeymoon suite for the first night of their married lives.


Hogsback offers visitors plenty to do and to see in the area which makes The Historic Hogsback Inn the perfect choice for something out of the ordinary as well as a wedding to remember. I can highly recommend you start your journey as Mr and Mrs at the Hogsback Inn.
